If the outdoor fan ran ok when you reset it, you may have a really dirty outdoor coil that needs washed. You can turn the power off to the unit and wash the coil with a garden hose. That should do the trick. If the fan didn't run, you may have a failed fan motor or capacitor in the unit. Please reply with further questions if you have them. If not, please remember to rate positively before leaving! Thank you,Brian
