The handy has a faulty on/off switch which works sometimes when I apply a bit of lateral pressure on it.
I would like to replace the switch and would appreciate a part No and place where they might have one.

NEI! (Not Enough Information) I'll simply point you to the amateur radio repair yahoo group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Amateur-repairs That's the best place to ask such a question, but you better have a bit more information so people can help you.
Sounds like the 20m mixed frequency is slightly off tune in the front end and doesn't match the tuning knob setting. This likely needs a bit of tweaking of an oscillator to put it on the straight and narrow of the IF system.
You can open the radio up and clean the switch up a bit but it sounds like the switch may be worn. It's a simple on off push switch. You may just go to your local hardware store or electronics store and get a switch and solder it in.
This usually indicates a problem with the firmware, or the radio thinks that it is connected to a computer but it isn't. Basically, it is failing self test.
It might also be due to corrupted memory as well. You can reset the radio by popping the door off the bottom of the unit, and turning the switch marked backup off. Then apply power to the radio, and turn radio on. Everything has just been reset, and with a bit of luck, might begin to act like you would expect. The Backup switch turns the memory battery on and off. If it is dead, it may need to be replaced before the radio loses power again. See below for link to manual.
