Simply Build It

Simple answer call an electrician.
But I am sure that's not what you want. So turn all power off, remove cover off switch and gently pull on each wire to see if its lose. Tighten up any lose wires.
It could be a burnt out switch but unlikely screws working lose more likely it it is not a lose wire then likely the switch will need changing but there are many other things that could be wrong and you could end up paying out more by guess work than getting an electrician.
