Try blow some grafit powder, easy to find at the hardware store. Put some in a piece of paper roll it until make a tiny tube and ready to blow trough .. Repeat many times as you need it, it works to me.... Good luck

thanks! However, I have tried this method. I am afraid the ignition switch might need to be replaced--yet finding this info has been problematic as well! (There are so many manuals -- some pricey, I am not sure which to try!) Again, thanks for responding!!
