Hello @igorl-11, welcome to the WPML support Forum!

Has the Language switcher disappeared after a specific event? Perhaps an update or installation of a new plugin?

Please switch to the default language and go to Appearance > Menus. Is there a menu available here? If so, is it assigned to your header? If possible, please send us a screenshot of that screen.

I also checked the settings of your server through debug log and saw that some items need attention:
Increase WP memory
Please increase the PHP memory limit to 256mb. Currently this memory is set to 128mb .

PHP Version
Upgrade from PHP to version 7 or higher. This is a practice recommended by the website:

All the best,
