Needd advice on Krups kettle switch that works intermittently

We have a Krups model FLF2 hot water kettle that has, after years of reliable service, finally developed its first problem. The switch (which is mounted at the top of the handle) has become difficult to activate.

Normally I'll just push the top of the switch and it will click into the "on" position, with a light coming on to display that it's working.

Now I have to fiddle with the switch to get it to come on. Sometimes it will click on, other times I have to play with the "trigger" on the handle, etc.

Apparently the switch that I need for this model is no longer available from Krups or secondary market appliance parts dealers. Is there somewhere else I can find a switch, or is there a way to fix this switch?

Thanks in advance for any advice. We like this old kettle and would like to keep it alive.

Welcome to the forums.

There are no parts manuals or lists for small appliances like that. You would have to take the handle apart and look at the switch to see if it could be cleaned or if it required mandatory replacement. Pictures of what you find would be helpful.
How to insert pictures.
