What would cause my Craftsman shop vacuum On/Off button to work when it wants to?

I took it apart a little to access the On/Off switch on inside of the vacuum and then put it back together did same thing. Switch only works when it wants to! Model number 338.179220.

Based on your details the On/Off switch is likely bad providing that you do not have a loose wiring connection between the power cord and switch or between the switch and motor. The part number of the switch is 82323-97.
