I have investigated the information you have provided and it sounds like you have a query relating to a freezer which has a flashing light on the temperature section. I have found a blinking temperature display is trying to get your attention, typically because the temperature is too high and things need to cool down. It could also be because a door has been left open.

I would recommend you clean the condenser coils situated behind the unit, if the condenser coils are dirty they will reduces the overall cooling capacity of the freezer and to do so please see the instructions I have attached below to help you clean them. 

  1. Gently pull the refrigerator away from the wall. 

  2. Unplug the refrigerator. 

  3. Locate the coils. 

  4. Start vacuuming. 

  5. Use the paintbrush to remove any stubborn bits of dirt.

  6. Vacuum up all the dirt you knocked loose onto the floor.

I hope the information provided today helps and if you have any questions or require any further assistance, please let me know and I will do my best to answer those!
