Shut down pc.
Open the case.
Boot up with the tower open on one side.
See if the cpu fan spins up.
After a good clean it's natural a fan gets stuck and needs a little help getting started again.
How you go about doing that is up to you. Just be careful. As a rule of thumb, you should not come into contact with any parts inside the case, while its on.
See if that is your problem.

The processor cooling fan is faulty or the fan assembly is not installed correctly.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.

The fan doesn't need time to recover from being cleaned, it is either going to work or not work. Have you checked to be sure that the connector is properly seated?

In that case the fan is failing. Maybe not right now, but it will fail
That's not always true dc3.
We do not all possess brand new fans and when a fan get's really dirty, you gonna blow stuff all around when you try clean. That stuff is gonna stick.
I had fans I had to push using a screwdriver just to get started and it took days for them to gain proper momentum.
One of those is the fan on this very CPU.
