Outside fan stops sometimes on outside unit

Hello.......for the last 2 days I have noticed that my outside ac fan has stopped. It starts when the ac clicks on, but after a period of time it stops. I turn off the ac at the thermostat and wait like 5 min and then it comes back on and seems to stay on for the rest of the day. Any suggestions?

Also.........I am heading out for like 3 hours and want to know if I am gone and the fan shuts off will the compressor burn out in that amount of time.

thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forums.

There are many threads on this exact problem. Did you read them ?
It's going to come down to a bad capacitor or a bad motor.
