    I think I have the same problem. The light on the front of the freezer blinks rapidly constantly. I have no issues with the freezer working though. The fact is blinks is enough to bother and worry me. Manual says the light is only to let you know power is being supplied to the freezer, nothing more, nothing less.

    freezer's electrical plug shorted and the circuit breaker activated. This is a 30 yr old Sears chest freezer.
    Should it still run when power is turned on (after plug repaired)?

The Power On light is neon. They will, as they age, start to flicker and flash rapidly. As long as it remains on, it is fine and can be ignored. If it goes out, then it should be replaced by a qualified Kenmore or Frigidaire tech.

I have a Kenmore 5 cu ft freezer that won't come on. I've checked the plug in and it works fine. Where would I start looking for the problem????

If, by plug in you mean the socket, then you need to check the fuse in the power plug next.
At the very lease there should be some light on the unit that illuminate even if it does not FREEZE.
If the compressor comes on wait to see if there is any drop in temperature. then it is possible the fuse was faulty.

see below links for more information on possible causes

Chest Freezer Stopped Working 14 years old

The first thing you want to ensure is that power is actually getting into the unit. i suggest that you do that by plugging a night light into the outlet and verify the presence or power. If no power, check your breakers. If power is present note that A chest freezer has only two working parts; the start relay that help the compressor start and a compressor. If you are getting clicking sound, your start relay may be out (inexpensive if you can buy it and install it yourself) or a bad compressor. if you need to call a tech for the repair, you may be able to purchase a new chest freezer that now consume HALF the power and for less than cost of repair.

It looks like a bad ignition switch or capacitor. This is not that expensive. Probably not the compressor. Unfortunately, one small part stops the whole show.have a friend who is a tech look at it.

Chest freezer ice is filling up around the top of the inner lid

Turn it off, remove the stock, tap the sides with a block of wood and scrape to the bottom of the freezer with a dustpan and scoop it out. Refit the stock and switch back on. Takes 10 minutes. Check the lid seals properly once defrosted and check it's not accidentally in superfreeze mode.
