Question Do I need to replace my cpu liquid cooler?

The push-pull fan doesn't work on it so it doesn't provide adequate cooling for CPU,
Do I have to replace the CPU cooler or is there a way to get the push-pull effect working? It doesn't even vent practically anything at the end of the tower like it should.
Suggestions?

I can't remember the name of the cooler. It's a Cooler Master with a blue light and Cooler Master on it. Not really sure how to tell. It's older. Runs hot, doesn't cool like it should.

The first fan isn't working. Don't seem to be pulling air from the cooler either.

Fans don't work, CPU cooler seems to work, there's a small vibration in the "radiator" but no airflow is that normal? Is that what the fans are there for?

I took it apart and it was pretty dirty so I cleaned it out, but the full push-pull fan set-up is dead. Perhaps not the Cooler Master itself.
 
What are your cpu temps like? Even with no airflow, it should offer some cooling. Not much, but a little. You could attempt to grab a good static pressure fan and replace the none working ones. You don't necessarily need push/pull, either or is sufficient.

But depending on the age of the cooler, it may be a better idea to just replace it.
 
Enough cooling to control idle temps, which isn't exactly difficult. Load temps are where issues are going to show up.

But you're correct in assuming the pump itself is probably working. I'd grab yourself a good quality fan and replace both your current fans.
