WeMo light switch - light stays on even after the switch is turned off

Not sure what the issue is, seems like the light is still getting power even AFTER the WEMO switch is turned off. Could it be because I have LED bulbs in there? kinda useless if that happens. Going to run out to see if I can find none-LED blubs and give that try. Has anyone else encountered this issue before?

If you hear it clicking, and it was working before, the relay has gone bad and Belkin will need to replace it for you.  (If it wasn't working before it's probably a wiring problem).  Shouldn't have anything to do with the load (other than motor/fan loads tend to promote contact burning / relay sticking).

Ya I hear it click when I turn it on remotely (just one click not constant), and the light certainly was/is working. So you don't think it has anything to do with the LED Bulbs?

Nope, it sounds like the relay contacts have welded themselves shut and the switch (or at least the relay) needs to be replaced.
