I will try the fan blade test later this morning and see if it starts. If so, i will get one to replace it. Is turning off the AC breaker all I need to be concerned with?
pull the disconnect out at the unit - that will kill all power to that unit
mk a good note of what wires go to what pins before you pull them off - a pic with your phone helps too
any Lock supply will have the capacitors you need - take yours to the store with you

also - a little preventive maintenance -- change the one on your fan also
cheaper to buy but just as big a problem
same deal - unplug at the unit before messing with it
there will only be 2 wires on this one and can attach either side

Make sure you discharge the capacitor before messing with the wires by grounding across posts with an insulated screwdriver after you killed power.

Almost certainly a capacitor failure. Seems mine had three in the control box. Took a picture for reference and removed all three and took them to a mechanical distributor. I think I walked out with all the replacements for under $25. It’s an easy job but if you’re not comfortable then just hire an HVAC company. They’ll have them on their truck and get you back in business.

It’s either the run capacitor or the contactor relay I had to replace the capacitor on ours last spring. Pretty common and less expensive than replacing motor to find out it was the capacitor. Good luck and be sure to ground out with across the terminals with a screwdriver before touching any of the terminals. It’ll light you up 😉
