Take  a look at the manual at: https://downloads.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_ser_stor_net/esuprt_networking/esuprt_net_fxd_prt_swtchs/networking-n3000e-on_Administrator-Guide11_en-us.pdf

Page 157 has the table for the System LEDs.  Blinking red indicates a non-critical failure (fan or power supply).

Page 148 defines what each LED represents.  As I read it, the top right one (that you are referencing as blinking red) is Switch Status.  I'd assume that this is the same as what Page 157 refers to as System LED.

Yes CompProblSolv, you're right that that LED is the status.  I misread and thought it was 'stack' instead of 'status' on the other manual I was checking.  thank you!
