Amiga 2000 cherry keyboard repair

I understand these keyboards are a bit different.
It seems at least five keys or so don't register unless pressed repeatedly and firmly.
Is there a contact beneath pad holding key needing attention or the pad itself?
How difficult to remedy?

If it's a Cherry keyboard there aren't pads as such, there are switches:



Spraying the switch with some contact cleaner could work. If it's really bad you'd need to unsolder the switch from the board and open it up for cleaning.

I will try the contact cleaner first. I fear that desoldering may be my only option.
Thanks

Those switches are still made, aren't they?

If it is a switch problem I could purchase a package of ten.
