dangerous light?

We have a pair of recessed lights on 3-way switches. One switch works fine to turn the lights on and off. The other switch can turn the lights off and but rarely turns them on properly. This (bad) switch normally causes a 'sizzling' sound to come from the lights, and then the lights go out after a few seconds. We've stopped using the problematic switch, but want to resolve what seems like a dangerous problem. Thanks.

First off if you hear a sizzling sound when activating a switch replace it. It is only a matter of time till something bad happens.
This may solve your entire problem.

Thanks for the fast response. I'll try that this week.

I changed the switch and everything's fine. Sorry I waited so long to get back to you. Thanks again for your help.
