Hey there, sounds like there may be something under the key, like a crumb, or perhaps some thing sticky got on it. You can try getting a can of air duster and spraying it out while pushing the key down over and over. If that does not work, get a qtip with rubbing alcohol and kind of soak the area around the key, press the key down several times and see if its better, then blast it with air. Your last option is to pull the key off and see whats going on, i'd do that last since the little clips on the keys can break.TIm
