It probably needs a capacitor. If you have a voltmeter that will check microfarad, you can check it. You did not say what size unit you have. But the fan is likely a 5 MFD It will say on the old one. The old one probably has 3 terminals on the top and is a cylinder. The top will be marked C, Herm and fan. You can buy a 5 mfd capacitor for about 10 bucks. Run a wire from the C side of the old capacitor to one side of the new one. Remove wires from the fan side of the old one and put on the other side of the new one. Be sure you secure the new one in a place where it cannot short out. Most of the time this can be accomplished with a wire strap.
As always be sure to disconnect the power before servicing. Also disconnect the power on the furnace. This will prevent any damage from occurring to the inside unit.

Coolant fan doesn't come on unless I run air conditioner.

"Coolant Fan" is not necessarily a common term used to refer to any particular fan in a standard HVAC system. Are you referring to the "Indoor Fan" that circulates the air within the living space???? OR are you referring to the "Outdoor Fan" or "Condensor Fan" that circulates the air across the outdoor coil ??

If its the indoor fan on an air handler that's not running unless its in A/C mode, it will be a faulty heating circuit fan relay on the main control board.

If its the outdoor fan and its a heat pump system the outdoor fan stops during the defrost mode so there is a slight possibility the system defrost board is faulty and stuck in defrost.

A little more information may help obtain a more specific answer.

Haier HWR06XC9 fan stopped working

Either the fan motor
the fan control relay
or the fan control relay switching transistor
the unit is re starting because the gas is not getting cooled
If competent check for voltage at the fan and work you way back

The fan does not spin

If this unit is located outdoors then it is your condensor fan. Can you hear the compressor come on? If not it could be the capacitor is bad,
If compressor comes on but fan does not, it is most likely your fan.

Compressor motor run in high ampere and then shut off

Check compressor capacitor to see if it’s good then check the contactor points and see if they are burnt or discolored if so then replace and make sure no wires are loose or burnt, then check the condenser coil to see if it’s dirty. Check to make sure outdoor fan is running and at full speed, if not then check the fan capacitor,and with the power and unit off spin the fan blade to see if it spins freely, if not the bearings are bad in the motor and it needs to be replaced.
