Is this just a "Power-on" light to let you know it's plugged in and has power? This is probably just a "neon" (although the actual gas inside is hydrogen for the green color) bulb and sometimes they will do the flickering thing literally forever. In a way it's a good thing as it makes you look at it. If it really concerns you, or if it is actually a warning that something is going wrong (it should say in the manual, you DO have the manual don't you?) have it fixed under the warranty.

Try turning the thermostat down to O and then back to max a few times this may free a stuck bimetallic strip. If this doesn't work and assuming you haven't damaged any components in some way then all that may be required is a new thermostat.

Could be...try jumping the t-stat to check that out and then check out these tips for more info..

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer2_bing.gif and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Yes it does. It will have to be blowing inside so look in there. You will have to take the cover off.
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed
and PLEASE give a Thumbs Up for the effort. The Raz Shack

Hi there, just happened to see you as I was signing off. I am a refrigeration contractor, so this is something I would do. Mainly commercial units, same concept but different controls is all. Anyway, I will have to ask you questions as we go that you can get back to me on, with my user name. So, how old or new is the unit and when did you notice when this problem started?? We know that the compressor is working, but how good. It comes on and runs, but does it freeze at all before it starts to warm up? Once the compressor comes on when the cold control/thermostat calls for cooling, it should run until it reaches the desired temperature and the compressor will cycle off. Once it has frozen everything and shuts down, it will cycle on and off as needed to maintain this temperature. On a freezer, they have a defrost timer and defrost thermostat located in the system also. What I would like to know is the age and condition over all of the unit, to determine if maybe you have a small freon leak which does happen. Somethings you can check, is to pull it out to get behind it with the thermostat set to its coldest setting. With it unplugged, you should have a lower panel that you can remove to expose the compressor, the condenser coil, and coil motor. See how dirty this coil is as far as lint and dirt that has built up on the front of the coil. Clean it with a stiff bristle brush, not wire. It has to be clean for this motor to pull air back through it to keep the internal head pressures down on the unit. After you get all clean, plug it in as the stat is already to go and see if the compressor and this condenser fan motor comes on and runs. If the motor does not run, this will be your problem as it will be at fault and need replacing. Just spend some time back there and watch to see if the compressor continues to run. The air that you feel this motor pulling through the coil should be very, very, warm! If not, this indicates a loss of freon, and you have a leak. Try and time the compressor to see how long it runs before it shuts off only if the little motor is running, if you are up to it. It is difficult for me to tell you everything to check as we are limited on what you can do. I wish I were there. Anyway, let me know the things I have asked of you to do if you are able. You may just have a faulty thermostat control. We will go there later. Get back to me to let me know what is happening and if it freezes solid before it starts to defrost, and how far it defrosts, like all of the way.
PS, I have to run for an hour or so, but will check as soon as I return. Good Luck
