    The controller to blanket lead has detached from the blanket end plug. This appears to be sealed so unable to reconnect wires. Can I get a replacement controller or preferably just the lead ?

Sorry to have to tell you this, but your blanket is buggered. The cost of repairs will be more than the cost of a new blanket. An unfortunate fact of life in this throw-away age

I need instructions on operating a remote to Sunbeam,Cal-King, electric mattress pad.


Which model Sunbeam mattress pad do you have? Sunbeam has some of their manuals here: http://www.sunbeam.com/manuals.aspx . The electric bedding share a manual. The direct link is http://www.sunbeam.com/BeddingManuals/SunbeamBedding/Universal.pdf .Make sure that you are using the master control for your side of the bed (that's the one closest to the plug for the wall outlet).

You may need to turn on the second control and set it to 0 at night. If you still are having a problem with the heat being uneven, you might need a replacement mattress pad. I know we've replaced several electric blankets or mattress pads due to problems with the control/uneven heat.

I hope this helps.

I have a fitted single Sunbeam electric blanket that has stopped working. Can it be repaired?


If it is a problem with the controls they can be replaced.If it is a break in the internal wiring then you will need to get a new blanket. Thank you

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.

I have a Sunbeam Queen washable electric Blanket dual control model BL445D. One of the detachable controls is not working and I would like to buy a replacement one? can you tell me where I can find one...


Hi. You can locate a Sunbeam Service Centre via http://www.sunbeam.com.au/Pages/Support/Repairers.aspx

You're looking at $64.00 recommended retail.

BTW have you checked that it's not the blanket? Swap the controls over, if the problem follows the control it's the control. If the problem stays on the same side of the blanket, it's the blanket.

Also note Sunbeam has a 3 year warranty on electric blankets. If Date Of Purchase is less than 3 years ago call 1800025059 option 1 to speak to their Customer Service,

I need to find a replacement control unit for the following electric blanket: Sunbeam 33600 RN 17280 PN 107882-003 Style 84 SK If anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd really appreciate it.


I have the same numbers on my blanket, mine has a PAC-215 controller, I found a couple of them on ebay. Don't know it all blankets have the controller so check the numbers on the back of your controller.

My Sunbeam RN17280 dual control heating blanket does not get as warm as it did, after only 2-3 years. Is this a common problem and is there anything that can be done? Both sides are affected the same, and...


I got mine for Christmas (2010)... Worked fine the first week or two... Then I noticed that it doesn't get hot at all anymore... Thought maybe my husbands side controlled both (like a master safety)... Since he sets it at 3... Mine is set on 'high'... But no, put his on high, it gets super hot, my side barely warm.

My control mechanism has error message F1 now F2 and will not get hot what is wrong


My electric blanket had the same message and I could not find anywhere to answer question. Sunbeam said to look on th cord tag and this was no help. I finally pulled out the main wire box inside blanket and took apart to see if there was anything obvious. All solders looked fine but then I noticed a drop of water. Used a hair dryer to dry the electronic board, reassembled and it worked. Must have been a water short.

F2 Fault Code On Heating Pad


I am trying something now as I was told F2 requires you to check the blanket for wear and tear and plug it back in. 3 times doing this should be sufficient. If it still reads F2 it's "gone" Ours is new so it shouldn't be "gone" but here's what I found...Where the plug goes into the blanket there are 4 holes for 4 silver pins. I noticed the 3rd pin was a bit lower than the other 3. It will not move up with pliers so don't force it just return it. check there

Electric blanket error code


My new blanket works great. Then I changed my sheets and would get the F2 problem. Very consistent after 5 tries with F2 blinking by unplugging at wall outlet and comes on with F2 blinking. Let it rest a night and still the same.

Then I unplug it at the blanket. Hmm, notice a pin was lower than the others. PUSH BACK IN FIRM and tried again. Perfect.
