Hi

This is a bit for my OCD, the landing light works fine via both switches but when the light switches don't lie flush when the light is turned off if that makes sense? I have tried turning off the electrics and flicking the switch but it never work so its almost like the wires are the other way round?

Any ideas where I could start with this?

Do you mean it's in the traditional 'off' position but the light is on? Have a think about how the two way switching works.

The way that 2 ways work you can have the scenario:
Both switches off - light off
Both switches on - light off
Either switch on, the other off - light on.

or the other way
Both on or both off - light on
One on, one off - light off

personally, I prefer the first method; all switches are off means the lights are off.

And my OCD makes me turn my kitchen switches off to match a 3rd switch on the same plate, even if that means turning the lights on and off again to get the correct configuration.
