I noticed my attic fan is not working. I went upstairs and I hear the fan trying to come on every few seconds but it's not coming on. I tried turning the breaker off/on but still nothing. Is the fan shot? Please help.

Thank You

Probably time to replace the fan.

If you cannot get the blades to turn with power on and by forcing them with a stick or something other than your fingers, then the bearings or brushes are likley shot and you probably need to replace it.
