The "switch" could be detecting the magnet from too far away. I would test the switch and see when it activates then if you can adjust the alignment so it triggers as soon as the door opens (you may be able to twist the magnet). Also, as mentioned by Old Scout, you need to lubricate the pivot points and the motor on the steps, I would suggest twice a year. Go to the Kwikee website and download their users manual, it will show you where to lube.
