Question
the pool heat pump fan does not go on unless I give it a start with a stick. I change the dual capacitor but that did not fix it.Can it be that the fan motor is bad but it works when I give it a push.

Answer
Thanks for the question; motors can be a lot of problems and, depending on the motor type, it is difficult to say what your problem might be.  More than likely, the start winding in your motor is too weak even with a good capacitor.  As well, the problem might be in the centrifugal switch (depending on the type of motor you have.
More info is needed pertaining to your motor than you've provided.  
Hope this helped a little.
