Condenser fan not working all the time

I have a older rheem unit. I have replaced the condenser fan and the capacitor last month and it has worked fine until the other day. My unit was blowing warm air from the vents I checked and the fan wasn't spinning. If I turn the unit on and off at the thermostat it will start working. I'm not sure what is wrong

When the A/C wasn't working, you mentioned that the fan wasn't running. I assume you mean the condenser fan on the outside unit. Was the compressor in the outside unit running? If not, you may have an issue with the contactor. Has it only stopped working one time, or is it doing it frequently? Does turning the thermostat off and back on always make it work?
