Fan not spinning on Amana RCB30B2A unit. Compressor is running though The fan is not spinning on my Amana RCB30B2A A/C unit. Compressor is running though. I was able to get the fan running by giving it a small push through the guard with a paint stick. It seems to rotate freely and has continued to do so since I gave it the push. Is the motor going bad or something else?

It's the run capacitor for your fan. You'll need to pull it out and replace it. Look on Youtube about how to replace a condensing fan run capacitor. Make sure you get the same voltage and microfarad rated capacitor. Make sure you also disconnect the power to the unit. You can get the part at any HVAC parts house or Grainger. Should cost around $15
