Why is my cooling fan not runing on my gateway solo 9300?

Your fan RPM is a function of your CPU utilization and temperature. If it's cool and not used enough, your notebook will save power by turning off your fan.

Of course, it shouldn't run that way permanently. If your fan is always off, you have a problem.
