If this is a side-by-side Whirlpool Gold refrigerator then the red light blinking on the right side of the freezer wall by the ice maker on/off switch is normal when the freezer door is open. That blinking light indicates that the level sensing beam for the ice maker system is blocked (by the flapper door on the left side emitter control board).

If the ice maker is working properly, then the blinking light is normal.

If you have a different type of refrigerator or you need more help, reply with additional details and the full model number of your refrigerator.
