Bathroom spotlights faulty switch?

My bathroom spotlights only work when I pull the switch 3 times. Is this a faulty switch?

certainly sounds like a faulty switch. got to be coincidence takes 3 pulls. you can usually hear the mechanical click of a pull cord switch when you pull the cord. Besides which I would certainly recommend replacing the switch as soon as possible.

Senate electrical had a bad batch of these a couple of years ago. 3 pulls for on, 1 pull for off..! Change the switch, you should have no more problems.
