If the unit is out of warranty and you feel up to a little diy you may try using a product called deoxit on the electrical contacts in question. Google deoxit, it's a pretty good product, we use it in airplane world. Of course EGO may not recommend this, maybe they will weigh in...
Howard, was your mower still under warranty? I have had my mower for less than two years and my first mowing this season was today. I leave the switch on low in storage. Today I engaged the self-propel and it started out in slow. Moved the switch to high and no change. Back and forth several times with no change.
I am a mechanic and an electrician. My gut tells me to open up the switch case and check things out. But I do not know if that would blow the warranty on the whole mower. Don't you know that is about the time the motor would decide to go out!.
By the way, that photo above does show the potentiometer could use a good de-oxide treatment.
