Hello and Welcome to justanswer..

This happens for one or two reasons .. It can be a build of dirt / dust etc in the switch or a mechanical failure of the switch ...

You will have to remove it - or at least open it up - and see if you can physically clean it - re try it..

If you can't do anything to resurrect it - it will need a new switch Im afraid...

I Sincerely XXXXX XXXXX helps you ...let me know if you need anything more...

Best Rgds - MIKE..
