I have a Lennox R-410A Elite Series Central Air conditioning

Hi, I have a Lennox R-410A Elite Series Central Air conditioning unit -- approx. 8 years old. Model is XC13-030. My issue is with the outside unit: fan does not run, nor turn on when switching the thermostat to "Cool", although air does blow through the registers inside the house but not cool air. I replaced the capacitor based on You-Tube video instruction but no luck. There is power going to the outdoor unit. I suspect maybe a fan motor (don't hear any hum noise from the unit whatsoever when cool switch from the thermostat is turned on). Checked electric box for breakers but all seem ok. Any suggestions?
