picaxe trouble


I just got a new picaxe 28x1 for christmas. I was trying it out and the pins don't seem to be working.

For example:

I connected a led to output pin 3 and ground and uploaded the code


high 3

pause 5000

low 3

pause 5000

goto main

For some reason this code doesn't seem to do anything as the led just stays on constantly. and, yes I did wire the anode and cathode the right way

Is there something wrong with my chip, or am I just doing something incredibly obvious and dumb?
