The flashing red light indicates the problem in the temperature of the unit.The temperature is rising over then required so the red light is flashing. There are some possibilities that you will have to get checked.
1) Make sure your freezer/refrigerator door is closing properly and sealing all around.If the doors are not closing properly then this can lead to rise in temperature.
2) If doors are proper and closed properly then other possibility is to check the compressor .Check the compressor is it running properly or its not running.Beside the compressor there is a fan if the fan is running the compressor is turning on if fan is not running the compressor is not running.If the unit is not getting very cold this also indicates the problem is in the compressor section.A weak or faulty compressor causes the temperature rise problem.
3) If compressor also checks out ok then the other possibility is fault in the thermostat of the unit.The thermostat is getting overheated and this is causing the red light flashing.
4) Before replacing any part in the unit try the defrost procedure first .Keep the unit unplugged from power and keep both the freezer/refrigerator doors open .let it remain unplugged for 24 hours.Then reconnect the power and check for some time.If the unit works properly that means defrost procedure solved the problem.But if same error light comes On flashing that means the faulty part needs replacement.
You can get required parts for your refrigerator from the on-line sites like :--

How do I stop a red flashing light on a fz175 hotpoint freezer


Unplug it - but I don't recommend that.

The flashing light indicates that it is working - and you can see it from a distance. Saves walking down the stairs to open the door of the freezer in the basement.

Worry about your freezer if the light goes OUT.

Good Luck

If this was helpful, please rate accordingly.

Thanks.

No alarm sounding but red light is flashing?


Warning light (red)
If the temperature warning light (4) lights up, it
indicates that the temperature within the freezer has
reached a level where the safe food storage is no
longer ensured. When the freezer is first switched on, the warning light will stay on until the temperature has dropped to
a safe level for the storage of frozen food.

Temperature acoustic alarm
This appliance incorporates an alarm which gives off
an audible signal whenever the warning light comes
on. This signal can be temporarily stopped by
depressing the push button for fast-freezing (6).
The fast-freezing push button can be released as
soon as the warning light is off.

Open door acoustic alarm
This appliance also incorporates an alarm which
sounds if the door is left open for more than 60
seconds. The signal will be stopped when the door is
closed again.

Flashing light re temperature in fridge jenn air model


Your freezer may be a fan cooled system. Make sure that nothing is crammed up against the fan grill as this stops the air flow and probably causes the red light warning

Lec freezer if i turn thr temperature up the red light starts to flash


that is because when you want a colder unit the sensor is detecting a warmer interior hence red warning light comes on.leave it at the setting you want and within 24 hours the red light will go off.
strongly recc you use a freezer temp gauge so you dont get rock hard ice cream(-18C is best)

Servis fridge freezer


It may be that the temperature of the unit is not yet up to temp.The flashing light will indicate this.Warning the user the unit is not ready,or up to safe temp.. Let the unit run to catch up,since you just started it.
