motor wont run when switched to forward or reverse

I have a teac tape recorder a-2050, when power is on , the vu meters lite up and if I activate one of the two micro-switches the motor runs,but if the long bar switch to allow the tape to play, the motor will not run, in the back I can see the relay pull in and thats the only indication that some thing is alive. I have worked on tv and radios with schematics but have nothing for this.
