Central AC outside fan won’t spin

Hi All,
My central AC fan won’t spin when i turn it on. The fan spins freely. I replaced the capacitor but nw I hear a hum coming from it. Could it be a dead fan motor?

If you replaced the capacitor and it just hums..... the motor needs to be replaced.
There's a good chance of a worn bearing.
