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.
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!
To reset the control:
1) Unplug the blanket from the wall outlet.
2) Check that the control is well connected to the module. (Disconnect and re-connect it).
3) Plug the power cord into the wall outlet.
4) Set the control to "on".
Try 1-4 three times. If the blanket still does not operate, disconnect the power cord and contact Sunbeam Customer Care at 1-(800) 892-7684.
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.
"FF" or a blinking light will display meaning “Fault Found”. The “fault” is in the amount of power available to the blanket, mattress pad or throw.
There are several causes to this problem: 1. Bedding product is plugged into an extension cord, surge protector, power strip, or not plugged into a direct wall outlet. 2. Bedding product wasn't plugged in properly.
To FIX this problem, do the following to reset your bedding product:
1. Unplug the power cord from the electrical connection. 2. Unplug the cord from the actual bedding product itself. 3. Re-plug the cord into the bedding product. Make sure the connection is secure and complete. 4. Re-insert power cord back into a wall outlet.
If the 4 steps above are not followed in order, the bedding product will not properly reset.
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
