How can I check my mail in refund check if the where is my refund System is not working
What makes you think the IRS "Where's My Refund" tool is down? I don't get any indication that it is not operational. What happens when you try it?
NOTE: When using that tool, use only the Federal refund amount, and not any total refund amount that includes a state refund. The amount to use is on your Federal Form 1040, Line 20a.
About how long has it been since you filed? Did you efile, or did you print, sign, and mail the return?
If you efiled, double-check with this tool to be sure the return was efiled successfully and accepted:
If you printed and mailed the return to the IRS, it takes about 4 weeks to show up in that "Where's My Refund" tool.

When will my tax return come
The IRS says 9 out of 10 filers who efile and choose direct deposit will get their Federal refunds within 21 days after being accepted. Some returns are processed fairly quickly, while others require additional processing due to specific items in the return. Some are pulled at random for more thorough investigation.
Did you efile, or did you choose to print and mail the return? If you filed by mail, in "normal times" it can take about 6 weeks to get a Federal refund, but due to the Coronavirus situation and with IRS processing of paper returns limited, expect a longer delay for a paper-filed return.
If you efiled, you should double-check to be sure the return was efiled successfully and accepted.
If you used Online TurboTax, you can sign into your Online Account and check the efile status at the Tax Home.
If that showed it was accepted, you can use the "Where's My Refund" tool at the IRS website below to monitor the status of your Federal refund.
NOTE: When using that tool, use only the Federal refund amount, and not any total refund amount that includes a state refund.
The amount to use is on your Federal Form 1040, Line 21a.
