Default ESC poltergeist?

Well guys I decided to jump into the 20th Century and go Brushless! Got a new CC Phoenix 60, with an Aveox 36/24/2 hooked to a WeMoTec Midi fan. Haven't been able to get into the ESC programming mode yet. After running it a few minutes, I turned the throttle off on my Futaba 8UAF, then, I turned the Tx off. I was reaching to unplug the battery pack when the motor cranked up and ran a couple of seconds and shut off, a few seconds later-same thing, and again...... Unplugged the battery. Why is the motor starting? Would hate to have my hands around that thing if it had a prop, instead of a fan! What's going on? And, how come these new ESC's don't have an on/off switch? My old brushed controllers had a switch, and one or two had an arming button. Or, am I missing something?
