No, you can not substitute a T8 for a T10. Don't do it. You can change the color such as a ww for warm white, cw for cool white, and so on but that's it.

Why does the light flicker when door is opened. The freezer seems to be working at this time.

It could be the button door switch that controls the light, or that a florescent lamp is being used in the cold fridge,

The power light is faint and flickering on and off

These power lights are usually of the neon lamp type, and they typically do not last a long time, especially when they are powered on 24/7. They typically fail by flickering at first, then, eventually, they just go out. If you feel confident as a "do it yourselfer", you can often replace this lamp for only a few bucks, but it does require disassembly of the control unit. Otherwise, I'd just leave it alone. If you're concerned about food loss, I'd invest in a freezer alarm. The lamp has no bearing on the operation of the compressor unit. On, flickering or out completely, the freezer will still operate normally.

Why is the power light flickering on my Emerson 3.5 cu. Ft. Freezer chest model CF450

Just noticed your question from 2012 - my answer is probably irrelevant by now, but here goes. The power on light is of the neon lamp type, and they will often fail after a year or so, typically by flickering, then getting dimmer and eventually going out. If you feel confident, you can replace this lamp for only a few bucks, but it does require removal and disassembly of the control unit. It would probably cost more than the freezer is worth to have an appliance tech do this. The lamp has no bearing on the compressor function; the freezer will continue to work with or without the lamp. If you're concerned about food loss, you might consider investing 25 or 30 bucks in a freezer alarm. Hope this helps.

Light doesn't work

First check the lamp; make sure it isn't loose in the holder,check the filament is still complete. Next check the light switch has power and is closing with the door opening. If no power, check wiring/ connection. If power in and out can only be the lamp!
