You have a bad connection somewhere. I would start by checking all the wire connections.

With Electricity there is the right way to do it and the dead way. Just because it works does not make it safe.

Could also be a bad switch. Shut the breaker off when checking the wiring or the switch.
Going to need a meter to check the switch.
