Unforturnately the best idea is to buy a new one. It is dangerous to try a repair.

I want to know if my throw is under warranty. I think I probably registered it as a gift, probably two years ago, a Christmas gift. Serial #D105VT07176010612B86112.


Hi Judith

your heated throw has a 5 year warranty! Warranty is covered on this page, specs are on the bottom link.

The 2 controls to our electric blanket are flashing "FF". What does that mean, plus there's no heat at all from it.


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.

wash the blanket then throw it in the bin
water and electrical components do not mix
electrical blankets are just a resistor element in ceramic covering and if you put that in a washing machine that is the end of the insulation

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.

Sunbeam Electric Blanket Model 972 A5 Type 692 (or 592) with temperature control 1 to 9 with 75 mins and 12 hrs and off control positions. The light blinks red and the blanket won't heat up. Please...


Did you get helped last year? If so please ignore. Otherwise....

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

You're looking at $69,95 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,

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

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.
