Thanks Tony, these can be tricky but likely the automatic switch is all that needs to be replaced.
It would be best on this one to have a plumber do this for you but he should be able to do this for you in less than an hour:-)
I will stick with you if you want to replace the switch yourself or want to order the part yourself. You would still save money if you have the new switch.
I can let you know where to order that part if you like?
