Nothing at all.

a) It needs some 'differential movement' to engage.
b) Attach a simple vacuum tester (MityVac or some such) to the vacuum line
leaves the engine heading down the right side (left side from front of
car). It may be that there's a small leak in the actuator hose. Test
it with the selector knob in all of its positions.
