Looks to me that a replacement switch would be required. How can obtain one?

“No parts required” is what’s displayed by default when there’s no link to an actual part for sale—it’’s a bit silly and clearly incorrect in this case. For hard-to-find parts, check eBay or Amazon. Also, a lot of folks with multiple broken units use these guides to cobble together one working unit from the parts. Good luck!
