STM32F4 TIM1 PWM missing ch1..3

STM32F4 TIMER 1 PWM1. Please can someone tell me how to enable channels 1, 2 and 3. Channel 4 is fine generating a PWM at 0..100% at 20Hz. I know channels 1..3 hardware is different - just can't figure out what to do to get the outputs enabled.


#include "stm32f4xx.h"  //CMSIS Cortex-M4 Device Peripheral Access Layer Header File.
#include "main.h"
uint16_t CCR1_Val = 30; //LED PWM range 0..100
uint16_t CCR2_Val = 40;
uint16_t CCR3_Val = 50;
uint16_t CCR4_Val = 60;
int main (void)
    At this stage the microcontroller clock setting is already configured by the
    SystemInit() function called from startup file (startup_stm32f4xx.s).   To reconfigure
    the default setting of SystemInit() function, refer to  system_stm32f4xx.c file.
