The switch is very cheap. I have the same vacuum. The solution is to stick a thin peice of cardboard under the slide track for the rod in the handle assembly. You will see the rod when you disassemble the handle for the sweeper. Move the on/off switch on the handle assembly a few times and look at the bottom of the of the assembly to see a thin black rod with cut grooves. This rod activates the on/off switch.
There is a little track that this thin rod of plastic travels along. However over time the the plastic rod begins to recess further into this track. The rod still slides but is now to far away to activate the on/off switch. This isn't very technical but just slide a thin peice of hard paper or cardboard between the rod and the slide track.
Make sure the red on/off switch on the sweeper is set to off. Put the handle back with the switch in the off position. Test the sweeper using the handle a few times before reassembling the screws. This fix may not be permanent according to how you have the paper/cardboard set between the slide track and the rod but it works very nicely.
Hope this helps! : )
