Hi there,Since it has the rocker switch you can test output of that switch to see if it's changing when you flip the switch from forward to reverse.If it's working properly then the only thing that determines direction beyond that is the controller.

So what should I look for in the controller
Expert:  Jeremy R. replied 1 year ago.
The controller is not repairable. You have to replace it if it's bad.

How do I test it?
Expert:  Jeremy R. replied 1 year ago.
There's not a test for it unfortunately.You having a directional drive problem having a simple rocker switch for forward/reverse control means the only thing it can be is the controller.

Yeah no problem, Sorry it's like that but, it's pretty simple really. There's not much to fail.
