The switch has went back into the panel
Expert:  JamesI replied 2 months ago.

I have just double checked the mechanism isnt designed to come away, as with most budget appliances these are seen as throw away components.

You could try and force it open then use some epoxy to glue it back, but really your looking at a new PCB.
