It’s going to be a DPST switch, so it makes/breaks both conductors. Get a meter and figure out which pair of wires are coming from the wall plug. The other pair will be to the motor. One set of wires will go to the two middle lugs on the switch, and the other pair to the other two lugs. I’d use a meter just to verify the switch orientation first tough. And don’t forget about the ground wires :)
