Control Button Sticking (Hot Spring Grandee - 2005 - pic attached)

Yesterday my daughter and a couple of friends were in the hot tub. I'm guessing they were mashing on the jet buttons. Regardless, the JET1 button now is stuck and doesn't have the same action as the other buttons. You can see a bit in the attached pic that the button is pressed in more than the others. It feels like it is stuck in the pressed position and there is no "spring" to the button. Not a huge deal but now the jet goes on and off intermittently on its own and I've been forced to cut the power.

Anyone know how to get this to unstick? I tried using a thin piece of plastic to pull the button out and a little WD40 (with the power off) but those things didn't work. Can pop the button out and pop it back in easily? Is there a way to get the controller out so that I can see what is going on?

Thanks for any help!

UPDATE: I found out that I could easily remove the bezel by removing the two screws. The problem was a mechanical spring that wasn't properly coiled. Anyone know where to get a replacement?
