Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond as typing, researching and adding links takes me time to do so please be patient and often I will ask you questions to narrow down the issue so do not rate me until we are done thanks.
Can you see if the compressor fan is running behind the unit next to the compressor?
Slide the unit out and remove the lower back panel behind the unit to see this.
When it stops and you have to reset it that is often caused by a defrost circuit failure. If you have a bad heater or bad thermal fuse for the heater circuit that can cause that issue.
You would have to test and check the heater circuit with an ohm meter.
You may have a control board issue as since the issue is sporadic and the condenser fan is not coming on right away either. I would maybe change the board out at this point.
