Hi, I’m an electrician and may be able to help you. 

Its caused from residual current finding its way back into the lighting circuit. Could be down to a few things like bad earthing on the lighting circuit. Inductive current being induced from another cable that is ran alongside the lighting cabling. Plus a few other things. 

You’re not using a dimmer switch or any fancy switches with small led indication lights in are you? These can cause this in led bulbs too. 

LED lights work differently to fluorescent lights so even a very small amount of current can be enough to ignite them. 


The led light should have a resistor and a capacitor in its internal lighting circuit. Some cheap brand lights dont have the resistor in the internal circuit, this resistor is there to discharge any residual current stored in the capacitor. 


First thing I’d recommend is trying a different brand bulb. Just change one for now and try that.
