I'm not entirely certain how you have this wired. Let me try to clarify:
You should have the constant hot connected with a wirenut to one of the two black wires in the first pipe, and also to a six-inch length of wire connected to one of the screws on the switch. The other black wire in the first pipe should be connected to the other screw on the switch.
I can't recommend using the push-in holes on the back of the switch. They make a very weak connection and have a habit of falling out or burning up, especially if there are outlets on this circuit that a vacuum or something might get plugged into.
I understand, so to by pass putting the wire in the back of the switch which is very hard to do I will buy some extra wire to make the six inch one to attach to the hot wire and black wire and then to the switch. Is that correct? Thanks for all your time.
