Question about Heating & Cooling
Do you hear the compressor running? If the compressor runs but the fan does not turn then that tells me the contactor is pulling in. Therefore, the fan should be turning. 99% of the time it is a burned out motor. Do not bother with the capacitor suggestions, it will be a waste of your time. Take out the motor, go to ACR or Johnson Supply, or Baker distributing, and get a matching replacement. Always get a new capacitor with the new motor. They are only 3 dollars and good insurance for the new motor. You will probably spend a total of 65 dollars. Get it done.
ps: if the compressor does not come on either then the problem is a bad contactor or thermostat or broken 24 volt control wire to the contactor. If the freon pressure is too low because of a loss of freon then a pressure switch could be keeping the contactor locked out. In the event of no compressor and no fan running, do not start off with the fan repair. Start off with the contactor and make sure it has 24 volts on the coil and that it pulls in.
