I put it back in but it's stuck; it stays either left or right, it doesnt move back and forth. It appears there may be another piece missing from the power switch...all I have is the red switch and a tiny cylindrical metal tube with a spring on one end. This piece fits into the hole on the red switch. Inside the vacuum itself where this goes, there is quite a large cavity
