About 90% of the " it operates intermittently" problems on this forum are down to lack of decoupling capacitors.
The capacitor type should be rated for high frequency (e.g. disk ceramic) and it's leads need to be kept very short to reduce their inductance.
The value isn't critical and is usually in the range of .02uf to .1uf
