Hi, R U sure you're tripping when switching 'off'?
If U have done the classic co*k-up & put all reds together & all blacks together, then light will come on with sw. in 'Off' pos, & will blow due to putting sw. as dead short across supply when turning 'On'!
Check with Docs project section for correct wiring
