Check the circuit breaker for the condenser be sure it is on?
A outdoor disconnect box near the unit be sure it is on,it may have fuses behind a cover ,need to be sure they are good?
Thermostat set to cool and set below room temperature?

Obvious items to look for and to be more in depth you will need to know how to use a multi-meter to check other probable causes

Goodman CLJ36-1A with bad Copeland Compressor CR30K6-PFV. Any suggestions where to get a replacement compressor?

Not a DIY project. You'll need refrigerant recovery equipment, vacuum pump, manometer, refrigerant scall, refrigerant disposal bottles, high pressure nitrogen tanks and regulators, acetelyn tanks with regulators and torch tips not to mention EPA license. Call a reputable service company. In South Central PA, fair price range is $1,500 - 2,000. If the unit is more than 10 years ole, replace the condenser (if they can get one for your refrigerant) for about $1000 more.

Compressor fan

This sounds like it is caused by either a high pressure reset. Or the compressor is tripping a high temperature limit internally. One thing you may be able to do is to hose off the coil surface with a garden hose on the outside (condensing unit) this would allow the operating pressure to drop if it is dirty.

Hope this helps Ya
