    How do I fix a broken bathroom pull cord ceiling light?

    Hello all I have a ceiling light in my bathroom with a pull cord to switch it on and off. The cord itself has broken from the rest of the switch and the light is stuck on at the moment. I’ve not had this happen before, so I’ve never had to try and fix it. How could I fix this? Is the cord a replaceable part on these light switches? Any information would be appreciated!
