Jacuzzi Tub Button Repair

The air control button on my jacuzzi tub is not working and I'm hoping someone can assist. Logical option is to replace the button, but I can't reach the button from the access panel. I've attached two pictures; one with the button assembled, and one with it disassembled.
Hopefully you can see the black plastic plunger. It comes right out of the assembly. The plunger has a groove on it about half-way up its stem. Whatever was in the groove is not there anymore. Does anyone know what goes in the groove? an O-ring?
The aerator is stuck in high speed. I have to push to button about 20 times to get a change in speed.
Any advice on getting the button working again would be greatly appreciated.

I would google the make and model to find replacement parts as a start!

I would assume the groove held an O ring turning that black piece into a piston. There are numerous air switches available but I could not find individual parts for the button. Everything is sold as a assembly but you might buy one and disassemble it for parts. Or, you can try seeing if simply putting an O ring on the shaft will make it work.
