Re: Light switch needs to be wiggled but...

Thanks for all the replies. The switch was wired correctly with the proper holes used. Due to the comments about cracking and fire I've gone and replaced the switch. FYI, it also seem to be getting worse now, happening more than only first time in the morning, which is another reason I was motivated to change it sooner than later.

Is it just me or do new switches always feel so much nicer?

I prefer the newer rocker switches compaired to the old style. The house I am having built will use nothing but the new rocker switches.

It would be better to not use ANY of the backstab holes and use the screws on the sides of the switch, instead. Backstabs don't hold up well over time.

If its a switch thats used often, pony up and put in the 2$ switch instead of the .59c one.. there -is- a difference.

ok, so what is the difference between the two and how do I know which I'm buying? Is it purely on price? I saw one on Amazon for $1.10 and don't have a clue as to which that is.

If you had to tighten a screw to hold the wire it is a good one.
