Manual and auto fill not working

Noticed the water level on the boiler was a little lower then it usually is so I went to add water to it as I’ve done in the past. Tried to add water with the the manual fill valve but no water was coming out, then tried using the feed on the auto fill and still nothing. There’s no sound of running water when I use the auto or the manual feed.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    feeder may be plugged or defective. I am assuming this is steam??

    If so get a garden hose and a washing machine hose (or a female -female hose connector) and hook the hose up to the boiler drain valve and fill it that way to get the heat going.

    Then call someone in to figure out what's wrong

    And I hope someone didn't accidentally close the isolating valve, if there is one?
