Hi,

Generaly speaking, 'come off', but it's best if you show us a few examples of sentences that you are unclear about, so that we can check them for you.

If you take them literally, off contrasts with on; out contrasts with in.

There's a piece of paper stuck on the wall, and it just won't come off.
The key is stuck in the keyhole, and it won't come out.
