Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The most common error with these is a communication issue between the units. The blinking light is an error code. How many flashes between pauses? Did you leave the breaker off for at least 1 hour to allow a full reset?

Hi Kelly I have left the breaker off for a couple of days and the light flashes continually once it shuts down

This is not going to ba an easy diagnosis because it could be a connections issue, wiring, any of the electronic controls, etc. I would start with removing each connection and reseating to the controls. Inspect the wiring, especially around any panels or holes through metal, the most common areas of wiring issues. Let me know what you find.
