A/c broke


When I turn on a/c I can hear the motor run, but cage doesn't turn. It spins a little by hand when turned off. Thoughts please.

Hello Hostage. I took the ceiling panel off and there is a cage on the shaft of the motor. I tried getting it started by spinning it by hand, but It's very hard to turn, and won't start. It spins a little easier with the unit turned off.

 Ok sounds like the evaporator  fan   have to see with a meter if there is power to the motor or not ;; if there is then motors shot if not then most likely starting  capacitor

The motor hums when I turn it on, but the shaft won't turn. If It's the motor, any idea where I might find one locally?
