You could have a dirty or worn contact that is causing an electrical arc, once the switch has been on for 12 seconds perhaps it is warming up enough for the arc to go away. Try replacing the wall switch, it's not a difficult thing to do and they only cost a couple of bucks (turn off the breaker first, of course!)
