My 1974 fan control switch gets hot. As I am older I need advice on who do I need to call for service? An electrician? An appliance repair business?

Any electrician can easily test the amount of current the fan is drawing from the switch.
Most wall switches are only rated for 15 amps maximum and from repeated operation over decades the contacts can become burned and pitted causing electrical resistance that will cause heating.
