Exclamation UTG warhawk ak47 malfunctioning fire select

The gun remains on 'safe' regardless of what the select lever is pointing to. I already tightened the screw and the lever itself is moving without catching. The gun was firing fine earlier that day and wasn't dropped or otherwise abused in the intervening time before the fire select stopped working.

The fire select has been partially malfunctioning for a while, though, only switching between semi-auto and safe. Now it's stuck solely on safe.

I'm more of a casual player, so I'd prefer not to sink half the original price of the gun into professional repairs. Does this sound like something I could fix myself? And if so, how?

Thanks in advance.

Actually, never mind. I took it apart and found that a gear in the fire select assembly was broken and another missing teeth. The safety wasn't actually on, the gun was just stuck at a very precise point between auto and semi that prevents trigger pull.
