I have a Trane XR80, and the fan won't stay on. It runs 5

Customer Question

I have a Trane XR80, and the fan won't stay on. It runs for about 5 seconds, then shuts off. The system froze up earlier today; I've let it thaw and cleaned the evaporator coils (the drain was plugged, and backing up). Now that it's clean, why won't my fan stay on?
JA: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?
Customer: Just today. We lost cold air around noon, and setting the thermostat to fan only doesn't work. It runs for 5 seconds or so, then shuts down.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If I can.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: No.
