If air Handler Fan wont run will compressor run?

Wondering if my fan in the house wont come on will that also make the condensor to stay off? I was getting a slight vibration on the air handler fan when I kicked the thermostat on, but nothing else. The unit is getting power and the transformer is putting out 24V.

Its a GE 2.3 ecm

Welcome to the forums.

Most thermostats delay the turn on of the condenser for up to 5 minutes.
Some air handlers start immediate and some are delayed also.

The outside condenser can run even if the inside fan doesn't.
Those GE ECM motors are a real tread and costly to replace.
Check for warranty replacement.
