Trane XR1100 outside fan not working but cool air is coming

Trane XR1100 outside fan not working but cool air is coming in through vents in house
Hello,

if you reach in the top with a stick or something skinny enough to reach the blades...and try to spin the fan blade...does it just spin, feel stiff or try to start?

I pushed it a couple of times and now it is spinning! Hooray!
Thank you,

This means the start capacitor is bad. The next time it shuts down it will not start again.

This is good news because the cap is cheap and easy to replace. Do you want info on how to change yourself?

Yes
If you follow the wires from the fan motor you will see that 2 go to a silver or black cannister. It can be round and the size of a pop can or oval.

Turn off power, mark the wires and then remove. Take to a local cooling shop and get a new one...less than $40 usually. Install new and you are back in business. Plus I am availble for follow up.
