3 switches, one plate, top one not working

I have a switch plate in the bathroom that has worked just fine for 6 years, now the top switch which is the light switch, wont "click" into the on position. It just springs back to the off position. The other two are to the ceiling exhaust fan, and the heater in the same unit as the fan.
The heater switch sparks now, it did not before. What can I do?
Thanks, Ellie

Replace the switch, sounds like something internally went bad.
