If it's 3 phase, reverse any two of the leads feeding the motor (incoming power). If it's single phase 240 or 120 volt, it's very tricky and some are not reverseable. Look at the name plate...

Power seat motor

Fron first principles, the reverse movement of the motor is caused by reversing power polarity to the motor. If he motor runs in one direction and not the other then it isthe switch. It is not conecting power to the reverse contact. Check.replace switch.

Gl1800 reverse stopped working. I haven't used the bike since last oct/nov and everthing else seems ok. presume reverse must have same fuse as starter motor but not shore. Any ideas?

There is host of problem incured with this. The linkage to the starter motor maybe out of adjustment. The switch push for reverse and the light will come on the dash. That switch can cause problems. The whole switch assembly has to be change/not cheap. Try some WD-40 and work the switch back in forth. Go to Goldwing Goldwing there are good help manuals for all goldwing. To check reverse start motor and leakage require a lot of space.

Our fan is going in the reverse do we switch it?

mcdevito75 here, Generally, The Fan switch itself is a pull chain type switch on the fan motor itself, this is a fan speed switch, NOW! also generally the reverse fan swtich is another shorter pull chain switch just about an inch away from the Fan Speed switch or the longer pull chain switch on the fan motor. This reverse switch can also be a toggle type or slide type switch but will be close to the fan speed switch on the fan motor itself.

Power seat will not reverse - electric switch will drive seat forward but reverse setting will not do anything. Are there seperate motors for forward and reverse and is there a way to move the seat...

There are three motors. The one motor moves the seat forward and reverse, one for up and down and one for the tilt. So you may have a problem with the switch. It's possible the switch contacts inside have worn out.

Club Cart Golf Cart Reverse only

You don't have it connected right. The DC motor is 'polarity reversed' to change direction. That's what the controller does is reverse the polarity to the motor to change direction. If the motor is still working in reverse, then the controller is 'probably' okay. Recheck the connections you made.

Converiable top switch will not retract?

Although the problem cut be an open in one of the wires, most likely it is the switch itself.
It is a double post-double throw switch that could be easily and inexpensively replaced.
Make a numbered label or use colored tape for each wire and make sure they are secured to the wires. Make a drawing that shows which terminal each wire goes to.
Cut the wires close to the switch. If the reversing switch is externally wired you will see that there are two wires that form an X connected to the outside terminals; the new switch will have to be wired the same way.
Take the switch to an auto parts store and tell them you want a double post-double throw switch with the same or greater amperage.
Try to get one with screw terminal, or 1/4" blade connectors[for which you will need to crimp 1/4 female blade connectors on the wires] or you will have to solder the wires back to the sw.
If your old switch isn't externally wired you will need to ask the parts place or an electrician how to wire a reversing switch.
