Belt Sensor

My belt warning light has come on, upon investigation it was found that the wheel has slipped to the side of the belt, I can pop it back in to place but it won’t stay in place. Has anyone experienced this, could it be repaired or  is it best to get a new one ? I may take it off and investigate but any advice would be great.

    Evening.
    They are a simple mechanism, a spring, roller and micro switch, and can be stripped down easily.
    Mine used to bounce off the belt and stick.
    It just needed stripping cleaning and re-lubricating.
    Try taking it apart and checking for wear at the pivot, then cleaning and rebuilding.
    Take pictures as you strip it, so you don’t misplace anything.👍
