    It is the Mechanism that has been broken due to the age of the part or due to high tension applied, so it need replacing. Thanks"

    "Hi,

    Sounds like the cord got stuck as the switch mechanism got a little overused. It will need replacing. Should not be expensive."

    "The pull cord has a spring return mechanism. If you gently pull it down and slightly stretch the cord (but not too much) then let it spring back in this may re-engage the spring mechanism. If this does not work then a new pull cord is required."

    "Mechanism inside the fitting is no longer working,maybe due to age of general wear and tear.
    Consult a qualified electrician & replace item in question."
