Does the motor get hot when it shuts down?

If the motor is hot to the touch when it shuts down that will tell you if the motor overheated & shut down or if a switch somewhere isn't turning the fan on. Don't know an exact temperature, but if it's too hot to hold your hand on for more that a few seconds it's probably overheated which would lead me to the problem likely being the motor itself or the capacitor.

The capacitor is pretty cheap so that would be your best bet, if that doesn't fix it. If the motor isn't any hotter than the metal case for the unit then more than likely a switch somewhere isn't sending power to the motor.

Ok , the fan did not work when I first turned it on this afternoon .
I noticed it look like it wanted to spin so I taped on the motor and it started
To work . So I'm guessing its the motor ? Or could it still be the capacitor ?
Thanks .

Sounds like the capsitor to me.That is only a 10-12 dollar cost so change that out and you should be good to go.If that don't do it then its most likely the motor and you always change the cap when you change the motor so you'll need it anyway.
