SOURCE: My Sunbeam electric blanket controls

Same problem, but now it is ok.  I emailed Sunbeam and was told that if my blanket was not plugged directly into a wall outlet it was not getting enough power and I needed to plug it into a wall outlet taking these steps:
1) Unplug from the surge protector/extension cord 2) Unplug from the blanket 3) Plug back into the blanket 4) Plug into a wall outlet

Q What does “FF” mean on my Electronic Digital Control?
A
The digital controls are designed to notify you in the event that a problem has been
discovered by flashing “FF” on the display. Follow instructions on the flag tag to reset
control. First, check the blanket/mattress pad for visual damage. If no visual damage is
found, unplug the system from wall outlet. Check that the control is well
connected to the module. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet. Set the
control to “On.” If the system still does not operate after 2 or 3 times
trying to reset, disconnect the power cord and contact Sunbeam Consumer
Care.

SOURCE: sunbeam electric blanket flashing ff

Ok folks. I fixed it. I unplugged and then waited and replugged and started at high or 9 and then it went to FF in 60minutes or a couple of minutes. I scratched my head and tried this fix--instead of starting again at 9 or H I started at level 7. That did it. FF most probably indicates excess current, and the H or 9 probably is too high to set. So unplug -repluf-turn on and dial 7 or lower. It should fix it. Or buy a new one.

SOURCE: the display panel on the

E-2 means indoor coil sensor not effective. Better clean with salt paper or replace it. Hope you wouldn't had cooling. Am I right? Thanks.

What does the error sign E2 mean on a biltmore electric blanket. Mine stays on and does not heat


From what you said I take it that you have dual controls? Or do you have a single control for both sides? Anyway, the Sunbeam people are not very helpful. First - Unplug your blanket from the wall outlet. 2. Look at your plug-in into your blanket. Make sure you have not reversed the plug. 3. Look for recessed pins. If you find one recessed, use a pair of needle-nose pliers and carefully pull out the recessed pin until it is even in length with the other pins. Reinsert your plug then plug the unit back in. If the error still occurs, you probably have a broken heater wire inside the blanket. I know the Biltmore blankets are spendy.

Blanket flashes f2 when plugged in. I have plugged control into blanket and electrical outlet. It still flashes f2


Sometimes you have to unplug and re-plug the blanket multiple times. The control might reset itself. If that does not solve the problem, more than likely, you have a break in the heating element wire, or a control board issue. If you are proficient with an electrical tester, you can check continuity of the wire at the plug in. Depending on your model, you can also take a look inside the control for any broken solder connections, or loose wires. Otherwise, I'm afraid there is not much else to do.

The 2 controls to our electric blanket are flashing "FF". What does that mean, plus there's no heat at all from it.


With the Sunbeam blankets that I have owned, FF meant that there was a bad connection somewhere. Have you tried the unplugging and replugging the Controller cord back into the blanket? Make sure it is plugged in GOOD AND TIGHT. If that part is connected as tightly as it can go, you may have a defective element.

What does the light flashing on a sunbeam electric blamket controller mean and why wont the blanket heat up


The flashing red light is designed to notify you in the event that
a problem has been discovered by flashing the light on the base unit.

Before resetting the unit. First, check the blanket/mattress
pad for visual damage.
If no visual damage is found, unplug the system from wall outlet.
Check that the base unit is well connected to the module. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet. Set the base unit to "On." If the system still does not operate after two or three times trying to reset, disconnect the power cord and get it checked out by a specialist!

My husband and i were just recently given the queen size, dual remote heating blanket from you guys. When we try to turn on either of our remotes, it flashes F2 consistently unless unplugged. Is there...


The first link has some info about the F2 code.Apparently it used to be seen as FF but was changed.It is a power problem.It is still the same problem,which is REALLY not good.The next couple of links are forums which people also have the same problem as you.I would seriously get rid of that blanket.I saw someone mention EMF.I know exactly what EMF is and it is not an issue with this blanket at all,and is present in many things.A microwave probably has more,and still is not an issue.Anything that plugs into a wall has some form of EMF present,so do not even worry about it.
