Exclamation ceiling fan works intermittently

I have 2 ceiling fans on deck under house overhang. Both on same switch. One works fine, the other works sometimes. Even manually pushing the blades doesn't jump start it. Is there a switch or something within the fan head/body easy to get to that may need replacing. I've played around with the pull on/off cord to no avail.

Is your fan rated for damp location?

The 2 fans were installed by the builder. I assume they are rated for outside but protected from weather. You think humidity may be the problem, maybe a little rust inside somewhere affecting electrical contacts?
