    "It may be sticking due to debris stuck inside
    Try pulling it and you should hear it click or feel it click, if not it needs replacing."

    "Hi
    Thanks for choose our website to full fill your needs.
    So the problem can be with the switch it self or the light (bulb) so in this case you need electrician to check and sort it out for you.
    Thanks"

    "If it’s been an ongoing constant issue it could be a loose connection either at the light or at the pull switch or cross connected cables at the light or switch"

    "Hi

    Could be as simple as a loose wire with the unit?
    Do all the other lights come on in the house?"

    "This fault could be one of two things, a loose connection inside the switch itself or the switch could have been damaged from a power surge & needs to be replaced."

    "Many reasons...
    Maybe the lamp has blown, maybe the switch mechanism has broken, a loose cable in either the light connection or in the switch itself"
