So does the red light stop flashing after a certain amount of time and does it then start to work for you?

Sorry for the delay as well, was at work....

Fridge is still cooling but very slowly

IF that is the case it could be an issue with the compressor it will take some time before it reaches the desired temp. What I might do if you just purchased this unit is exchange it for another one and see if the new one will cool any better. Click HERE for an owners manual, I believe the flashing red led indicates the unit is ON but not ready for operation. IF it starts to work and the light does stop flashing then it should start to cool.... I would go through the manual and verify all your settings are correct and if it is still giving you poor cooling and it is new I would exchange it for another one....
