Fan doesn't start without assistance.
 
I have a RUDD Heat pump unit that won't restart after it shuts down. When the unit starts up after a shut down the compressor comes on, but shuts down after a few minutes because the fan doesn't come on. If I hit the reset button on the unit after a cool down period and then gently give the fan a little nudge then it starts right up and works fine.

Probably a bad capacitor.

you need a "run start capacitor" very easy to install just make sure yoiu get the right one

But check the cap you have just in case it is not bad, or it is bad and there are other problems causing it to be bad.
