    Sunbeam electric blanket flashes FF. How do I get it to stop?

  • Zeusest Dec 29, 2008

    So do I... How do you fix it? The blanket does NOT get warm when it flashes. And, it's out of warranty. What do I do?

    Same problem here. I have a King size model with two controls that I bougth from Costco. Only one of the controls, i.e. only one side, stopped working and is displaying the FF.

    Mine does the same thing. Won't work at all. This is really crappy considering it's 3 degrees outside and my house doesn't hold heat well in the winter.

    Same problem. It flashes FF and won't heat up. Sure hope someone can point us in the right direction

    Same problem - both control pads flash FF.  No changes despite being left unplugged for a month.

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.

I came here with the same problem but after finding no answers I checked the connection to the blanket and discovered that mine is unplugged! Check your connections and while you are at it make sure the wires aren't pinched or tucked under the mattress ( not an expected cause but things to be avoided for safety's sake). See if you have a bad connection or even mismatched controls.

I also tried pushing and holding the on/off switches, both at the same time, for 3-5 seconds. It worked!

Rinnai ex 38 flashing code 99. I took the vent apart and there is no blockage. Unit has only been installed one month.


If it is only one month old doesn't do anything but call for warranty serving. ANY attempt to repair this will void the warranty.

How do I fix my electric heater


  • sounds like the sensor or bulb that tells it to start the blower is defective/ im not familiar with your unit but this seems the most logical answer most furnace will not turn the blower on right away usually 90 seconds after the ignition but will also run longer to exhume any dangerous carbon monoxide. Electricic heaters are different. What type of unit do you have

Without other specifics I can only postulate that it's more than likely overheating, and perhaps it's location stifled

Electric Furnace stopped running


You have one of two problems. Either the capacitor for the motor has failed or the motor has failed. I would turn off the power to the unit and see if you can locate the capacitor and remove it. An ac supply or electrical supply house can match up the capacitor. This is relatively inexpensive. Otherwise you will need a new motor.

It could be a thermostat problem. Also it will seem to run constantly as it tries to heat and one of the elements are working which could be a sequencer problem.

Flashing re co


Re Co stands for Recovery Mode. That means if you have programed your thermostat to be at say 72° at 5:00 then it should kick on in Recovery Mode several minutes before 5 in order to reach that temperature. This is normal and doesn't indicate that something is wrong, just that your thermostat is trying to reach or recover the programed temperature.
