There's not much that can go wrong with the switch but things do happen.
I can tell you how to remove the SWITCH then you can go to www.maglite.com to order a new switch if you then think that's what the problem is. However, I do not know how to actually 'test' the SWITCH itsself to determine if it is defective. I have the rechargeable model which is nearly 20yrs old and it developed the same issue about 10yrs ago. I simply removed the old switch, ordered a new one, installed it and now have a happy light.
Let me know and I will send you instructions. :)

    Hi, I am having the same problem. the switch is working only some of the time. How can I remove the switch and replace it. I live in Indonesia, so it is difficult to send the unit to the shop.
    thanks

Couldn't find out how to take bulb part out so I could get corroded batteries out


The back of a Mag-lite screws off to replace the batteries. Look for textured lines like on a coin.

MAG-Lite flashlite with Battery removal problem


Pull the cap off the end and wack it in your hand or a piece of wood, don't swing it like a baseball bat. Sometimes they get stuck in mine also, Not sure why, but a good wack gets the job done. Don't worry, the flashlight can take it.
