First Co. 36RCW5-HP blower stopping at random times

I have a First Co. 36RCW5-HP blower and it seems to stop at random times , while on cold and hot , we only use it on cold mostly . It just "booms" while it's working , sometimes it gets past the boom and it continues to run , otherwise it stops and comes back on after a period of 10-20-30 secs . During this time the outside unit still runs as I can hear it .
It sounds like it doesn't get enough electricity to run or something . I have replaced the filter with a brand new one as I thought it was the filter because when I removed the old , clogged filter , it seemed to run fine . It's also done completely at random , sometimes it will run fine the whole night , thermostat stopping it of course , sometimes it just goes in and out at all times and I have to stop the AC as I'm afraid it will do more damage .
When it's running , it's cooling just fine don't have any issues , except for the "booms" , I thought at first it doesn't have enough air flow and maybe it has a sensor that's stopping it from running .
Any help would be appreciated .

Thank you

Check the capacitor.
