This is fire hazard.
Call electrician.

Are wire and breaker sized correctly?
Do you have aluminum wire?

Otherwise turn off circuit breaker, pull out device and inspect for melted wires.
Use nose to find source of heat and burning.
Inspect if you have aluminum wire. Do not use aluminum wire.
Aluminum wire will burn down your house today.
Use only copper wire.
Replace combination device with new.

I connected the combo per diagram and the outlet is powered only when the light is off. No pilot light at all.

Which combo device do you have??
Include model number so expert can look at the specific manual.

Is this a switch-outlet combo with indicator LED?
Or is this a switch-pilot-light combo that controls separate outlet.

What does the switch control?
What device did you replace?
Did you replace a single-pole switch, or a 3-way switch, or an outlet??
Add a comment including as much detail as possible.

I want to change . alight switch ito a combination switch. outlet and light but thiers only two wires runin to light switch

You only have two wires, because it is wired for a switch leg. You only have the incoming hot and outgoing hot to the light. You need a neutral and grounding conductors also. If you're putting this in a bathroom, it should be a GFCI receptacle. You will have to add another wire, or just add another box in the wall.

We are trying to install leviton combination switch in the old building and just two wires are coming out from the wall. how do we connect them to the switch? thanks

By two wires if you mean just a black and white wire then this is a switch leg and you cannot use this switch at this location. All you have here is the power coming in on the black wire an leaving on the white wire. The switch just breaks the flow of electricity. An outlet cannot be used here because there is no neutral wire. This is how a switch leg is wired. a8179fb.png
If you have something different post back.

How can i wire a combination switch outlet

first try putting the red and black together and the whites together...turn on power, if the lamp lights all the time then keep reading, (if not you need find out which is hot and which is going to the lamp this can get complicated if the color code is not followed)
find out if the blk is hot all the time or if the red is hot you need a tester for this. its easier to make a double pig tail on the hot wire and put one of the pigtails on one side of the switch and the other on the BRASS screw on the recpt. now put the other wire (red or blk) on the other side of the switch no pig tail. then tie the whites together with a single pigtail and put the pig tail on the SILVER side of the recpt. make sure you tie in a ground as well or the GFI will not work. hope this helps

Leviton 8299 Combination Switch / Smart lock GFCI Outlet Leviton-

power coming in from the breaker box: black wire will go to line-hot screw, and the white wire will go to the line-white screw. the switch wires coming out of the back of the gfci- 1 will go to the load-hot screw & the other black wire will wire nut to the black wire going to the light. the white wire going to the light must go to the load-white screw.
