It is normal for small orange neon indicator lamps to blink or flicker when they're about to burn out. This should not be a problem unless you notice other electrical problems such as sparks or smoke.

Any easy test for electrical problems in your heater is to turn on an AM radio in the same room with the heater...and tune it to a clear station that you can hear clearly. If you hear steady crackling sounds or static in the radio while the heater is on, then the heater should be inspected for electrical problems.

How do I wire up a F2544 baseboard heater with a single pole themostat

It sounds like you are not getting the correct voltage for the heating element. If you wired a single pole thermostat, and its a 220v unit, then it will not get hot enough, like you are saying. If its a 220 heater, you need a 2p2t thermostat. The parts supplier will know what this means.
