Question about Dryers
Most motors use a start capacitor to create phase shift to get motor turning. So i would think once in motion it will continue to turn.
Now having said that what keeps fan turning! The system relies on electromagnets which pull the motor into next section ( think of a cut pie with separation between slices).
So what can cause this sequence to stop.
1. You have a quick loss of power.
2. You have a motor thermocouple (prevents burn out at a raised temperature)
since it restarts, although you mentioned after 4-5 hours of running, there was no mention how long it sat off. I would think this is not problem.
Power loss! Do lights flicker when AC comes on?
is the on off switch a pull chain or wall-switch?
If a flicker then power might be interrupted just as the fan motor has rotated in to pie slice dead zone. Which means slim that all flickers would effect, but could.
A wall switch can build up resistance or have poor contacts that by way of vibration lose power for a split second.
Remember cap.is used to start, so follow the path for quick power loss.
Also check connections at fan to wiring, a loose connection can open due to vibration, then settle down when off

SOURCE: Ceiling fan stopped working
two of my four Hunter fans/lights have quit working. I have tried both the remote control and the pull cords but no luck. Is there some way I can verify if the two units are getting power?

Before you try all of that try the on/off switch, I tried holding down the light switch on the remote and turning the on/off back and forth several times and then the light came on... it is very tricky, but I knew my battery was good, and the fan worked before the power went out and the dip switches did not need reset or changed. I tried many different combinations so I am not sure what tripped it up, but try that before changing anything or pulling the fan cover off. Best of Luck
