I have had this problem as well you should try taking the switch out (it just unclips if i remember right) as on mine it looked fine until I had it unconnected then I could see that water had got in side.

A quick clean and it was back working with out any problems

Had this happen 3 times to me now until I found that the water drainage pipe that runs from just under the window down to the lower left outlet on the boot had be come detached and every time it rained water was flowing direct on to the top of the switch and not down the pipe.

Reconnected the pipe and have had not problems in the last 6 months (pipe is a bit hard to see if you don’t know its there)
