Question My CPU fan isn't working properly

Recently, my CPU's fan has stopped working as intended. The fan won't spin, but it sometimes jitters. After moving the blades of the fan, it will spin only for a couple of seconds and then stop, almost as I've helped it but it can't go on. When this first happened, since I noticed my CPU was running hot, I opened up the case and noticed the fan wasn't doing anything. I quickly fiddled with the wires that connect the fan to the CPU fan header and noticed if I held them in a certain way, the fan would continue spinning. That fixed the problem for about a week until I had to update my windows. After the computer restarted, the fan stopped spinning as before and any effort to fiddle with the wires doesn't help anymore. Any ideas why? Thanks. :^)
