Hello, if you cannot turn the fan by hand then the motor is shot. However, when power is applied to the motor and it starts after you give it a push then its the capacitor. Whenever you replace a motor tje capacitor must be replaced aswell because the microfarad rating of tne capacitor may have changed.

Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. First thing to do is go to the furnace take off the lower blower door and locate the circuit board turn the power off to the furnace. In the circuit board there should ba a small car like fuse usually 3 or 5 amps check the fuse it is probably blown replace the fuse with the same amperage fuse and then turn the power back on on the furnace and check the operation of the furnace.

Hello, try spinning the fan blade with a thin object such a a stick or long screwdriver, if this gets the motor running the capacitor must be replaced. If it does not get it going the motor is fualty and will have to be replaced.

You have a short circuit in the outside system. Either a bad compressor,bad fan motor or possibly a bad capacitor. Visually examine the capacitor. If it is bulged out anywhere,replace it. Check for burned wires on the capacitor and all other connections.
Remove the compressors wires from the circuit and restart the unit. If the fan runs the problem is in the compressor. If the fan does not run,the problem is with the fan motor.

to me it sounds like filter are dirty, need to be cleaned or replaced, home systems, packaged or otherwise are hermetically sealed and should not need freon recharge. Always start with airflow and/or unit being set too low. An AC unit of any type will build ice if a) the filter is plugged up and can't move enough air, b) it has been run without the filter, clogging the coil, again, not moving enough air, c) setting an AC unit below 68 degrees F will almost ALWAYS cause icing, and d) running a standard AC when it's warm inside and cold outside (unless equipped for "low-ambient operation"). When in doubt, a bit of maintenance(thorough cleaning) by someone with AC skills can cure a b, common sense will cure c d.

not all electronic leak detectors pick up r410a-puron. Evaporator coils are notorious for leaking puron. your coil should be under warranty.
