FanTastic fan not reversing

Hi I have an 86 silverstreak and just installed a fantastic fan in my bathroom. This is the 4000r with a switch to select either intake or exhaust mode.

Since my silverstreak has electric opening and closing, fan operation and lights all on the switch on the wall there were many wires connecting the old fan. I bypassed them all except the black and white wires and hooked them up to my new FF vent.

My fan blows in but nothing when I turn it to the exhaust setting. The various speeds all work fine.

How do I hook this up to operate in both exhaust and intake modes?

Any help is appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Two wires on the reversing switch are not in the correct spots. Give fantastic a call, and they will tell you which wire is supposed to go where.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Thanks overlander!

Actually seems to be working now. I didnt realize it had a neutral position in the middle. When stopping it in the neutral position and then switching to reverse it works. Yesterday when I tried "starting" it from Reverse it would not come on= strange. Anyway it is working now.
