Router switch


I inherited a router fixed to a table. All is well apart from the fact that the on switch needs depressing constantly whic would br fine if used as a plunger router by hand not in a table, when using on the table I loose one hand to keep the switch pressed. Am I missing a control which allows this machine to stay on ? It's a new something or other is the brand name , not an expensive one.
Thanks

Router tables I've seen have the router switch in the "on" position all the time. The router is turned on and off by a standard light type switch on the table. If you can't get the router switch to stay on, get a replacement from the router manufacturer.
What brand is the router?
