Answer: 
A typical photocell will fail in the ON position or "closed circuit" the cell has either failed or you lost your neutral to the photocell.

Answer: 
You may want to see if there are any other controls (timers, motion control, photo cell control) wired into the same circuit somewhere. If so then that will cause malfunctioning of one another and could be your issue. Do you have 2 or 3 wires coming from main power source?
Also make sure wiring is done exactly as follows...
Connect black power line wire (hot line) to the black wire of the control.

Also make sure wiring is done exactly as follows...
Connect black power line wire (hot line) to the black wire of the control. Connect black wires from light fixture to the red wire of the control. Connect all white wires from the fixture and white wire of the control to white power line (neutral). See video link How To for correct wiring diagram of wired photo controls.

Answer: 
Same thing happened to mine. It fails in on position. Appears to be an item unique to Home Depot, not a national brand so probably cheap junk. Won't buy it again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Photo Cell for dusk to dawn security light I really don't know whether to rate this product low or not. My light wouldn't shut off during the daytime and it's over 20 years old. I thought it was probably the photo cell that was the issue but after that installation it still doesn't shut off. September 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 1 item of the 14 ordered was defective. I expect the cost to me of having an electrician find and replace the defective photocell after it had been installed will be greater than the total value of this order. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Photocell light control Great product. I maintain buildings and lighting at several properties, us this product regularly always satisfied. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good p/e control The p/e switch was easy to install and connect in the junction box, exact replacement for an earlier switch that failed. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Photocell This photocell works better than the one that came with exterior light. April 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works as expected I installed the unit inside a post which holds an outside light. I had used several of the cheaper units which screw in between the socket and the bulb but they failed after a year or so. I expect this to last much longer since it appears more robust and is more protected from the weather. December 29, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by As Advertised Works as advertised, especially appreciative of its ability to control LED and florescent lights. January 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Photocell Post Button Replaced previous cell, worked perfect ! Would recommend to DTY er January 5, 2016
