I had the exact same problem with one of my switches. It cropped up after a couple of weeks of use. Intermittant signal. Tempermental switch that crackled when moved. This being my first kit, I feared it was bad solder joints, but it seemed to be completely assoicated with the movement of the switch.
I put up with it for a couple of weeks, but finally, I tore into the switch. They're not the easiest thing to get into, but with a small screwdriver, you can pry back the retaining tabs on the bottom of the switch housing. Inside, there is a little springy gold plated mechanism that rotates with the switch and bridges the contacts. It seemed a little misaligned/unspringy so I bent it to make better contact and put the switch all back together. Problem solved!
Hope this works for you.
