Thank you in advance!!
Please excuse me for asking the obvious.
I have a tendency for looking for the complicated when the simple answer is right in front of me. Could the cotter pin have been in the on/off switch? It is a PITA (for me)to get back in after pulling out so I just leave it out.
Just thought I'd throw this out there.
And if you replace the switch, does it just pull straight out?
