That isn't what I asked you. If the contacts in the plug don't grip real tight to the blades on the switch, the high resistance will overheat them which will weaken them even further.
If you are really burning the switch out, that would be an indication that something that it feeds is overloaded or shorted. I would expect the fuse that feeds the switch to burn out first. Check and make sure someone hasn't replaced fusible link with regular wire somewhere.
