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.
