Sounds like rubbish on contacts or stuck sender so that may be as good a fix as any. I suspect that removing the tank then filling it with boiling water and shaking it up with either a steam vaporizer cleaning tablet or aspoonful of sodium bicarbonate may effect a permanent fix, but belting it occasionally is probably more cathartic!
