Problem with the Light chain!!!?

Ceiling light fan help, problem with the light chain. My ceiling fan has two chains, one for the fan blades and one for the lights however the chain for the ceiling lights is stuck.

Is there any easy way to fix the chain so it can be pulled again so i can use the lights? Any idea?

If you are in a rented apartment, simply inform the janitor/landlord and they will fix it free of charge...

Make sure the power is off. Is it stuck "on" or "off"?
Unscrew the nut a few turns where it meets the fixture, try tugging on the chain again. If it does not retract, chances are the switch is broken and unless you can repair it yourself (electrician), it will cost more to have it repaired than a new fan.
(Makes sure you tighten the screw again)
Most electrical companies charge Fr.80/hr for repairs.
