I was doing a long draw of water from my fridge after replacing the fridge's water filter when I started to be aware of a burning smell. It was the kind of smell that you experience when a motherboard in a laptop is fried. Then the water dispenser abruptly stopped working. When I push on the lever, I hear nothing and no water comes out. The light is still working in the dispenser and the filter light.

The ice maker is still working and I can dispense ice as well.

What can I do to fix the water dispenser?

Disconnect the two wire connector from the water valve solenoid for the dispenser (green coil) and insert your meter leads in the connector. Press the dispenser lever and the meter should indicate 120 VAC. If the voltage is correct, replace the water valve. If the voltage is 0V the dispenser board is bad. Unfortunately the dispenser board has been discontinued and no longer available.

I don’t have a green coil that I can see. Also I can test the ones that you can see here but there is no power to the dispenser since I unplugged the fridge. Do I need to plug the fridge into the electric socket and then press the lever and check the leads with the multimeter?

Yes, that's the only way to test for voltage. The violet coil is the dispenser coil.
