homelite gas trimmer shocks when turned off

Homelite -185 gas trimmer shocks when turned off with switch ..... Where is the problem? Switch, at motor, or short in between?

The connection between the switch and ground is bad, causing the kill circuit to go through you when you touch the switch instead.
