Take a stick and give the blade a push if it starts it a problem with the motors start windings, and will need to be replaced. However, you'll want to open the cover and check the split capacitor. It looks like a silver can with wires going to the top of it, these are a common failur with alot of use in hot weather. You'll also want to make sure that the outside of the coils are clean the way these machines are built hampers the rain from keeping them clean and thus causing fan damage or if you're lucky the cheaper part the split capacitor.
