In-window air conditioner switch issue...I can't figure out how to google this, so I'm hoping someone here can understand my question!

We have a window shaker which is only 2-3 years old. It has a manual dial-type switch with 6 settings:
2) Fan - High
3) Fan - Low
4) Cool - High
5) Cool - Medium
6) Cool - High
This year, when I put this thing in the window, it seems that only 3 settings work. It can be off, Fan - High, or Cool - Medium. If I move the dial to any other settings, I effectively get "Off".
I'm not an electrician, but I've owned a fair amount of appliances in my life, and never seen this behavior. Can anyone suggest why this is happening? Are there some contacts that I should be cleaning? Time to return, or bring in for service? Honestly, this A/C unit is making me feel dumb!
