the tumblers are probly stuck, there should be a tiny hole in the lock face, put a small pin or nail in it and you should be albe to remove the lock core by holding the pin in and twisting and pulling on the key, try cleaning the core with some wd40 if you can't you will have to change the core and or the switch

Thx.  Key is rotated to running position, so paper clip in hole does not seem to do much.  glad to see new switch is only $15 with key.  thx for the response.
