Sunbeam Electric Blanket blinking

We just plugged it in again for the first time since last season. It never blinked last year. Sounds like it is a common problem.....

    the same blinking light has happened to my blanket too. It was a gift a year ago and worked great. Now, the light blinks and i have followed all instructions to fix but nothing works. This is a piece of **** and I will I will return to Sunbeam with these complaints. Probably won't replace sine it was a gift but I'm not about to embarass the giter!

    this F...thing, have had it 2 weeks,,,and its BLINKING....SERIOUSLY ITS DAM JAN. IN NEW ENGLAND!

  • Lee W. Feb 03, 2012

    I had the same issue. Thanks to this thread, I fixed the problem. It is the connector at the blanket that is the problem. It should connect firmly to the blanket. As you connect it, you should feel some resistance and it should be snug. Unplugging it should feel the same. If not, the connection is not good. I feel this plug is constructed poorly and doesn't allow a good connection. I'm handy with electrical stuff, so I took apart the plug connector on the controller cord and modified it so the tubular brass contacts are firmly in place. Now it works fine. Have a repair shop or electrician check your plug. Good luck

    I have a king sized bed, dual control, and the one side is never used. My sister came over and wanted to warm up the side of the bed I never use, the remote wouldn't stay on. It's not blinking, but when you push the button it wouldn't stay lit. I feel as if it has a short, which is odd since it's never used on that side. My side works great, but it makes me angry that the other side doesn't work since these electric blankets by Sunbeam are expensive. I unplugged it a couple times, from the wall and the end of the blanket. Even blew on the rods in the plug at the end of the bed, but nothing. :(

I had checked the "connection" at the blanket before but after reading this I unplugged it from the wall and re-checked the plug in at the blanket. It's not flashing anymore and it seems to be working.

From Sunbeam's site:

Q: What does "FF" mean on display of my control?
A: If you have a digital control, it is designed to flash "FF" on the display to notify you that a problem may have been discovered. Gradient controls and warming throw controls use a blinking indicator light for this purpose.

Follow the instructions on the flag tag to reset the control or follow the steps below.

  • 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, disconnect the power cord and Contact Us.

Seriously, don't be dumb, people!!!! If Sunbeam consistently neglects to supply us, as consumers, with working products - and then refuse to replace them (At no cost to us) We DO have options!!!!!

Simply go back to the place of purchase - buy a new one- keep your new receipt and packaging, and in 30 days or less......return the defective one in the packaging with the receipt - then take the store's merchandise credit and get whatever you may want - or need - for the cost of the replacement blanket.

And seriously.... don't get on me about being "Deceptive"!! Afterall - what IS deceptive is the fact that Sunbeam monopolizes the heated blankets on the market and they fail time and time again to 1) produce a working item and 2) to stand by their bogus warranty.

If I have purchased a defective blanket from them - I absolutely REFUSE to spend another dime on that product in the hopes that that MAY make it "right" I am NOT sending it back time and time again at my own expense - when THEY failed to produce an acceptable product.

Not a chance!!!!! I will go get myself a working blanket, return the old one, and use the store credit on stuff like food for my family instead.

I am a widowed person just trying to stay warm this winter without going under financially , trying to heat my home. If I buy something that is defective - or if it becomes defective due to no fault of my own, before the warranty period is up.....I WILL be getting a new one - Whether THEY "Allow" me to or not.

We DO have choices - and we do NOT have to be at the mercy of the mass producers of faulty products!!!!

Take it or leave it.....But there is ALWAYS a "Solution"

And not for nothing - Keep ALL packaging - if you must exchange anything OVER 30 days old......do so WITHOUT a receipt - you cannot be denied an EXCHANGE without a receipt as they do not know when it is purchased......especially at Wal-Mart.

Some store receipts state specifically that you MUST have a receipt for all returns/exchanges.....STOP SHOPPING THERE!!!! As consumers - We need to TAKE THE POWER BACK!!!

I haven't looked - nor do I believe that I have to - But most likely, my defective product was made, at least in part, in a Foreign Country. WE get what THEY don't pay for.....Crappy, poorly made products with no true "Warranty" and no FREE replacement. THEY are cutting corners - and WE are paying for that!!!

Go get a working blanket, blender or whatever your defective item is - Use your new packaging and receipt and in 30 days or less.....give them their defective one back!!!!!

If you have to do it a million times.......At least you will have an actual working product to show for your money. If it craps out before the warranty.....Go get another one!!!!

Maybe then - they will begin to produce working appliances and items that we can be comfortable spending OUR money on.

We are only "victims" if we choose to be. I'm just not a victim any longer.

I simply REFUSE to spend what little money I have on something that I want or need - And then have no support at all for defective products!!!

Brand new products should NOT be defective - and products SHOULD exceed the warranty. If the product I purchase fails to stand up to normal use - as PROMISED by them.......They WILL replace it - quite WITHOUT their permission, if it must be done that way!!!!!

SAVE ALL OF YOU PACKAGING on ANY and ALL items you purchase!!!!!! If you need to exchange it before the warranty is up - do so WITHOUT a receipt AFTER the store's exchange policy is up.

Get the store credit and buy stuff that you NEED. Let THEM figure out what to do with all of their defective products - Like maybe produce them to actually last!!!!!!

End of rant!!!!!

Good luck - And remember - we do NOT have to accept unacceptable merchandise!!!! Unfortunately, we have come to EXPECT it - but we sure don't need to accept it!

    Thank you !!!! I bought mine in Jan. and just opened it and it didn't work. Tried to exchange it and they wouldn't because my reciept was over 30 days. Now I will go to another store once they get them in and go without my recipets. Thanks for the tip....

  • condoblues Nov 12, 2010

    I understand that you are of limited financial means and that makes you angry. What you are suggesting is fraud, deceptive, dishonest, and quite possibly illegal. It is because of people "returning" items in this manner that stores have cracked down on their return policies for the rest of us who have legitimate returns without a receipt as in returning/exchanging a gift. You may feel that you are "getting yours" but your dishonesty is hurting the rest of us.

  • Matthew Carter Jan 03, 2011

    You believe that it is OK to make the retailer pay the cost for something that you think is Sunbeam's fault? You've got some learning to do. Not only is it illegal to swap an old product for a new one and return it to the retailer (that's fraud), it is counterproductive: The result is that the retailer raises prices, and Sunbeam doesn't get the feedback that (you believe) they need. You should send the product back to Sunbeam. If they can't fix it, take your business elsewhere.

  • mrsgapter Jan 29, 2011

    I heartily support this comment. We need to make the retailer (which is usually Wal-Mart) feel some pain for the shoddy merchandise they sell. At the local one Sunbeam is the only model provided, for electric blankets. If Wal-Mart gets enough of the crappy blankets returned it will in turn put pressure on Sunbeam on will try another manufacturer. Wal-Mart would have much more leverage than a single consumer. So, lighten up, you critics.

  • rebeccahobbs
    rebeccahobbs Jul 25, 2012

    Hee. You guys are funny. You must plug the blanket into the cord before plugging it into the wall and it will work properly. That's all. It's not "defective". Perhaps their technical writers need to be more thorough, but that's all.

    Lick on it? What? .. so if I rub my elbow on it chanting theres no place like home it won't work because I french kissed it, I even rubbed the cord in all the "right" places .. and still it blinks! .. not winks lol. It sucks (not litterally) its freezing balls here lol. P.O.S.

Every time this blinking problem has occurred, I've found that the connection at the bottom of the blanket APPEARS to be secure but is really not fully connected. Unplug the control from the wall outlet and then Make sure you unplug the blanket from the cord at the bottom and COMPLETELY reconnect it. Replug the cord into the wall outlet and turn on your blanket. This has solved my problem 3 times. I immediately wanted to blame Sunbeam but the problem was faulty connections and my not closely observing the problem.

Had the same problem, read the solution, unplugged the blanket from the wall and the cord to the blanket. Found a small thread was wrapped around one of the connecters on the blanket side of the plug. Removed it, plugged the cord into the blanket and into the wall, no blinking!

The blanket itself must be plugged into the dial before the dial is plugged into the socket. unplug the dial from the socket, plug the blanket adapter into the blanket, then plug the whole thing back into the wall.
This will fix your problem.

  • lee Summit Nov 13, 2010

    Thank you BlanketMan,

    The sequence you listed resolved my blinking lights. Properly seating the plug and the pins on the blanket require additional force. I had them together and they seem fully seated but until I used both palms and squeezed it was not all the way in. I am healthy and strong but needed to really push. If anyone else reading this is not as lucky as me, have a family member of friend push this connection one more time before you go through the hassle of seeking a replacement.

  • Tthudz Jan 04, 2011

    This heating pad probably has a break in side the blanket with the heating element. I doubt Sunbeam will exchange it since we no longer have the receipt. It's better to throw away the electrical hazard and avoid Sunbeam products

Whilst not a solution - use some elimination to establish the cause - thats how I know that the problem I have is the same.

Plug into the blanket and I get the flashing red light... ****** - then SWAP THE CONTROLLERS and the problem follows the controller!

Therefore, this is not a problem with my blanket - its with the controller. Short of pulling it apart - I can spend the $AU65 and get a new one off ebay.

Before anyone tells you to do something fraudluent.. try this simple test FIRST - at least it will help you know what the problem IS!

(in my case, I think its likely that the connector in the socket that plugs into the blanket has a couple of "fingers" that have pushed apart... and I could problem get a pair of pliers and gently "squeeze" the plug (with the power off) to see if it will bring the connectors together..
Either way - I've eliminated the problem.. now to hone on the fix..

Hope this helps you
(or at least you could simply swap the controller with the wifes one... and then blame her!! :D )

Good luck all!

Sunbeam should put this on a site but i had to call them to find out the fix for my new electric blanket!

my blanket worked again after that!

"Erratic power hits" as you refer to electrical surges are called BROWNOUTS. Where does stupidity like yours come from?

  • Trae Smith Dec 08, 2013

    Some men know what to do but you sir are not one of them. This page is not even discussing "stoves". Folks if it is blinking then you likely have a connection problem. If it is not blinking but lit with no heat you likely have a broken element which is the wire going through your blanket. I have had two of these blankets both just stopped working for no reason before winter was over. Sunbeam is made in China. Do not expect your product have quality just because it cost more. Hope this helps

    First of all, this comment is extremely sexist and quite condescending. It's uncalled for. Second, the flashing F (not PF) on a Sunbeam heating pad does not mean that the power went out, and you can hit the power button all you want and it won't solve the problem. If it was that easy this question wouldn't exist. You may be an expert at resetting stoves, but you have a lot to learn when it comes to comment relevance. And manners.

Any time I have an electric product with a plug or socket, I take the time to smear a little Di-Electric Grease on the connector. This is the same stuff (in a little packet) that auto stores sell with any headlight or signal lights. Less than a dollar, and it goes a long way, plus solves the connection issues.

Try the fold test described at the bottom of this link. My wife washed the blanket and the only one controller would turn on and not blink. I tried all the other answers above to no avail so I thought I would do the fold test. Craziest thing, it started working fine after doing that. Have no idea why

I was having the flashing lights but no code and no heat. After reading through the comments, I unplugged my cord from the outlet, then from the blanket and using a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol, I cleaned the pins and once dried plugged the blanket in and then into the outlet. No blinking lights! I am currently testing to see if it still heats, but thanks for all of the info.

Was told that these heating blankets are better quality than when I was a child. If I hadnt kicked down to the bottom of my bed and woke up to the fire on the foot of my bed, remember freezing briefly before grabbing door to get my mom but something made me turn around and grab cord out of wall while grabbing pillow an such to beat the flames and then using the almost 2 liters have and still do keep by my bed to completely put it out before getting my mom. Bed well bottom of esp was destroyed, foot bit red and other shin but my right hand with 3 fingers were nice and blistered, hmm didnt hurt at first, just wish could have got out of school work, but all new I could write with either hand ...so how do I trust that this blanket can or will be fixable, -40 and lower, umm need some extra heat but not working and am on disability cant keep getting new ones or trying to send away at my cost, nope that is wrong make them right the first time PLEASE

DUAL CONTROLLER BLINKING INSTEAD OF HEATING....

SOME OF THE SOLUTIONS ARE CORRECT, PLUG IN BLANKET,UNPLUG CONNECTOR AT END OF BED BY SQUEEZING AT EGDES AT CONNECTOR AND SHOVING IT BACK DOES STOP THE BLINKING, BEEN WORKING EVER SINCE. THIS HAPPEND TO OUR PREVIOUS BLANKET, I WISH I KNEW THIS BEFORE I GOT SO MAD THAT I TOOK WIRE CUTTERS AND PULLED ALL THE WIRE OUT, IT MAKES A GOOD PLANT HEATER....
P.S. CAT SAYS BLANKET RUNS COLD, BUYING A SEALY INSTEAD... GOOD LUCK

I have an Amana Gas Range inwhich the oven ignites at times and not at other times. Seems to be an intermittant issue. The range is about 12 years old, model #AGS730.


Hello,
That sounds to me like a weak igniter. That is very common for the igniter to work at times if its weak and at other times it wont work at all.
Read this i wrote about that before http://www.fixya.com/support/r9947539-problem_when_gas_oven_ignitor_glows_but

Their can be as many as 5 limits or rollout switches on and around the unit. One in the smokestack one on each side of the burner one under the burners etc

Look for air flow restrictions and correct that after resetting limits.

Some of the electric burners only work some times. If you wiggle them they will come on and make funny noises, but if you move just right they will go off again. I have replaced the burners but still have...


This sounds more like the receptacle that the burner plugs into is faulty. Remove top and check. In some models this is a common failure. For diagrams of your oven go to www.appliancehelponline.com and enter your model #. Easy to replace on most models.

Oven shuts off


astrosandiWelcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

you asked , Is there a recall on this Tappan range? You are exasperated; you have replaced the electronic control three times in the last six years and the clock still blinks off and on occasionally and the oven shuts itself off. Totally frustrated and would never buy this oven again.

What is the model number?
How old is the range?

Don't put good money into bad!
You need to shop quality and not price!


Here is an interesting report I just read!

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old range



Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your range,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your range is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that ranges under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your ranger is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new range.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive range
eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of ranges you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.
