Is this the fan inside or outside the house?

Outside
Home Improvement Expert: David Bowden, General Contractor replied 2 months ago

If the fan outside is not coming on it might be a tripped breaker or blown fuses. Make sure both of those are working properly since the fan requires 240v to run. If the compressor is running you have 240v and then the problem will be the fan itself.

This is providing you have the thermostat calling for cooling. Thermostat should be Auto and Cool and the temperature below room temperature with not delayed or timed programming.
