The most common failure for this problem is either the start/run capacitor or the fan motor. IF YOU ARE NOT experienced with electricity then I would strongly suggest hiring a technician. The volts are 220 with a potential of 50 amps in a common residential unit.
If you are knowledgeable in this area then make sure the motor has volts to it. If it does have volts and does not spin, it is bad. You can sometimes tell by feeling the motor it will probably be very hot. The compressor will eventually shut itself off when it over heats. It usually will restart after it cools down(sometimes many hours). The motor and capacitor are pretty generic and can be matched up at a local Grainger store or whatever Retail, specialty store that you have in your area.
I hope this helps:)

Could be a defective thermostat in the plenum.
When a gas furnace shuts down the fan(blower) will run until the plenum cools to the safe range. Usually 1 and 1/2 minutes.
Intermittent operation is a defective thermostat or relay.

MY FURNACE WOULD RUN FOR ABOUT TWO MINUTES , THEN THE BURNER WOULD GO OUT BUT THE BLOWER WOULD CONTINUE TO RUN , LONG ENOUGH TO COOL THE FAN LIMIT SWITCH DOWN , THEN IT WOULD START THE PROCESS ALL OVER. WHAT FIXED MY PROBLEM WAS THE SECONDARY HEAT EXCHANGER THAT IS LOCATED JUST ABOVE MY BLOWER MOTOR WAS PLUGGED WITH DIRT , WHICH RESTRICTED THE AIR FLOW , CAUSING THE FAN LIMIT SWITCH TO REACH 200 DEGREES AND SHUT THE BURNER DOWN . YOU'LL HAVE TO TAKE THE BLOWER MOTOR OUT TO GET TO IT , BUT MY FURNACE IS RUNNING PERFECT NOW
