How are you getting any sound at all if you're using a killswitch?

When I am not pressing down the button it feedbacks

What kinda killswitch?
Did you wire it?
How did you wire it?

1. If you simply used a "push to break" to cut the output, it's gonna happen. Exactly the same effect as unplugging your cable.

2. If you used a "push to make" to shunt the output to ground (the proper way), then you've a problem that I can't diagnose.

If you've used number 1, change it to 2.

I'm now confused. It feedbacks when you "use" it, meaning when you push it. You're now saying you get feedback even when you don't push it? Then what happens when you push it?
These go to eleven...

what other pedal or fxs do you use with it? If the feedback is still around when the guitar signal is cut perhaps the problem is a little further down the line. also is your amp located next to any electronic devices..computers, tv, lights, stuff like that?

When I said it feedbacks when I "use it", I meant it feedbacks when I plug it into the output jack of my guitar. It does not feedback when I press the button.

Still sounds like you're encountering problem #1. I did this once, had to get the guitar rewired to ground the sound, not break the connection.
