Unhappy Window Washer pump frozen

I live in the Northeast and my window washer pump is frozen. Is there anything I can do before I bring my car to a mechanic? My car is a 2000 Nissan Altima GXE.

Thank you.

Frozen!? Geez, I thought window washer fluid was suppose to handle like -30degs F before it freezes....Did you put water in there ?
Get a propane torch and heat it up, not too much, hold the torch about 4inches away and after a while it should thaw out and hopefully work again. Or you can take the pump out, bring it inside for a day or two then see if it works again....I dunno what to tell ya, I have never heard of a washer pump freezing!

Good Luck!

Put the car in a heated area and allow it to thaw.Then add washer solvent concentrate and operate the washers.When you buy washer fluid read the label some only protects to 20 above and will freeze.
