Yes, the condenser fan should be on as long as the compressor is on (they're wired in parallel). If the compressor runs for any length of time without the fan running, the compressor will overheat. The most common reason for the fan not running is a bad capacitor. Find the fan capacitor (the wiring diagram should help you locate it, or follow the wires from the fan motor) and see if it looks like it's bulging. If it's bulging (usually the top), it's probably bad, although it can be bad without bulging.
