Horizontal Light Switch Only Partially Working


I am trying to figure out what needs to be repaired for my light switch - the light only remains on when the switch is balanced between on and off.

Does the entire switch need to be replaced or is it faulty wiring or should I seek professional help? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
