ac fan surging then stopping

I have a fan problem.. the outide unit is working fine but the blower was kicking on and off inside now its just off. I can turn the switch from auto to on and nothing happens. I have even tryed to free spin the fan with switch in on position nothing. when i 1st noticed it i shut it off at ( therm) for a few min.s then cut it back on it ran fine for about 10 mins then starting kicking on and off. I cut off again for a few then back on and now nothing the outside unit comes on but o air flowing in house.

If your fan is stopping with a good capacitor and you don't have any undo load added to it you have a motor going bad you may be able to clean it and lubricate to get it running but most likely you need a new one

Sounds like either fan motor or fan control board has problem. Do not run outside unit alone. use 'fan on' setting to test and fix your inside fan.
