Sounds like the switch might not be quite engaging sometimes and then others, some switches rely on being shimmed to work correctly and the adjustment can be very fine, some use washers etc as spacers to adjust them in or out or it maybe the linkage that contacts the switch is worn a little and the extra play is causing the switch not to quite engage??
Does the switch work ok every time if operated by hand? if so its a setting problem.
