Air handler blower fan doesn't blow. It does jerk a little every half-second or so.

When it tries to come on give it a spin with something safe (not your hand). If it takes off and runs replace the capacitor. It may just be missing the initial boost it needs to take off from a dead stop. That"s the capacitor's job.

Rheem classic 80 fan motor on furnace hums will not turn on

Have you checked the capacitor? Try spinning the blower wheel by hand, if this gets the motor going you have a bad capacitor. If not, the motor will need to be replaced.

Rheem RAKA 037 JAZ

When power is applied to the motor try spinning the fan blade with a small object such as a stick, if this gets the motor going than the capacitor is faulty and must be replaced. The capacitor is located in the outdoor unit.

Rheem condenser fan don't spin up under it'sown power.

If you have a multimeter that tests "uf" or "mfd" that is microfarads. That will test the capacitor. Turn off power to unit, touch top of cap with insulated screwdriver across terminals to discharge and remove fan and common. MARK WHICH WIRES GO WHERE. Or if no mfds on multimeter, amps×2650÷volts=mfd. Amp draw on fan wire off of cap times 2650 divided by the volts between common and fan on the cap. If cap is good it's likely the motor.

Just replaced inside fan motor on 5 ton Rheem heat pump. Fan will not spin freely. What to do?

1) remove power from the unit
2) remove panels enough to see where the squirrel cage fan is binding
3) these units are normally adjustable by loosening the bracket which holds the fan motor and simply moving it one way or another just a bit. (which is why understanding which end of the fan is binding is a GREAT second step, right after step 1, remove power from the unit, that includes shutting the emergency heat coils breakers OFF.
Don't worry, you're close to the solution!
