    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

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.

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,

One of the controls will not turn on. The cord is


Try swapping the controls and see if the problem stays with the control or the blanket side. In any case I would go on line and contact Sunbeam, they are a very reputable manufacturer and I would be surprised if they do not stand behind the product. You will be able to tell them if it is the control or blanket. If the other side of the blanket gets warm when you switch the controls it is the control if the same side gets warm it is the blanket. If neither side gets warm is is the blanket and control.
Good Luck,

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 Sunbeam electric blanket controls blink when I plug the control cable into the blanket. I cannot turn the controls on or off.


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
