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

When I plugged in the cord to the blanket, it displays a continuous blinking of the letter F

Sunbeams - blinking "F" means that the connection to the blanket was loose. Make sure you give it a good push to get the piece fully engaged.

Can electrical cord for electrical blankets go between mattress and box spring

Wires should be on the floor. Do not put them where you may lay on them and or cause friction on them (even if it's just rolling over during the night).

Power cord for the Sunbeam electric twin blanket

Haven't you contacted the company that shipped it to you? It might have been an oversight and they'll mail you one. You can do that for anything you get shipped to you from a company.

Sunbeam electric blanket flashing ff when I try to turn it on.

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.

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
