If air comes out of the vents it is working properly. Reversing polarity would make it run backwards.

i guess i didnt word that correctly. the air should be blowing toward the center of the rat wheel fan in order to blow through the system properly. mine is blow from the center outward, hitting walls instead of going through the vents. no matter what i do i cant get it to blow the right way

Like F.O.R is saying reversing the polarity, switching the wires from one terminal to the other makes the squirrel cage spin one way or the other. You may have a damaged blend door that is not opening.
