condensing units

My condensing unit stopped working. I went out and tested for power 220 volts at contactor. With the contactor energized and pulled in should the fan start automatically? How could I determine if my condensor fan motor is bad?

Yes the outdoor fan should start right away when the contacor pulls in, also the compressor there. If you hear the compressor and fan dont run give it a push and see if it will start, If it does then it needs a capacitor.
