It was designed that way? What does the packaging state?
Might not be any "problem".
:I put up one I bought from ACE. Only problem is that the switch
: lit even when turned on. Others I have only lit when shut off
: What would cause that problem ?
Package says it comes on only when switch shut off, which is how several
others I have hooked up work. It is not a problem, just wondering if
that is a sign of any electrical hazard. Buty , there is no way to screw
up the wiring; I set it up the same way as an old one that was driving
me crazy from flickering.
Is it actually a lit switch, or does it just "glow in the dark" after
being excited by light? If it's a lit switch with only two terminals,
then I would say it is a problem, since that means there's a large
voltage drop across your "on" (i.e. closed, or shorted) switch, and
that ain't right.

If an electrical device doesn't do what it is supposed to do, I don't
like it. Take it out, bring it back to the hardware store and they'll
give you a new one. A little time lost, but you'll have peace of mind.
