Question about Sunbeam 722 Auto Shut-Off Heating Pad Heater
What is causing the display F2 on my Sunbeam Heating Pad
I am trying something now as I was told F2 requires you to check the blanket for wear and tear and plug it back in. 3 times doing this should be sufficient. If it still reads F2 it's "gone" Ours is new so it shouldn't be "gone" but here's what I found...Where the plug goes into the blanket there are 4 holes for 4 silver pins. I noticed the 3rd pin was a bit lower than the other 3. It will not move up with pliers so don't force it just return it. check there

When my Sunbeam heating pad showed fault code F2, I unplugged the cord where it connected to the heating pad, blew out the accumulated dust, and plugged it back in. After that, it worked fine. No more fault code.

The two "solutions" listed here had to do with electric blankets, not heating pads. So my time was wasted here and problem not solved.

ARGH!! I went online hoping to find an answer to this problem only to find a BUNCH of people with the same issue... I am SOOOO sad. I had a queen and moved to a king so I had to purchase this one... NOT happy. I love a heated bed... I mean, really I LOVE it. Now I am stuck with this stupid "F2" which sometimes can be fixed with an "unplug, plug" and sometimes not. Thinking about just taking it back to Costco and trying a totally different product. So sad.

Ours did the same thing. We had removed the plug from blanket to put it away for the summer, and, apparently had not fully pushed it on firmly enough when we reconnected the plug.
I completely unplugged the cord from blanket, and then, firmly pushed it in until it would not go any further and the locking mechanism engaged. Turned it back on and it is now working fine.

I had to unplug from the wall outlet and the control reset itself. My wife unplugged the blanket cord at the heating element and my side of the blanket was on so it was looking for a connection. Best practice, turn off both controls, unplug from wall outlet and then unplug blanket cord.

My F2 error seemed to come and go.....at first. Then no matter how long I unplugged and replugged it- the error remained. I unplugged it, disconnected the the connecting point, blew the dust out, took my little finger and rubbed around the ports, blew hard again, re plugged it, and wallah! It works again. Yay!

Noted that my connector also had a recessed third pin and it also would not move. They must be manufactured that way for some good reason. Tried unplugging the power cord several times with no change. Tried pushing blanket connector in harder but to the latched position was as far as it was going to go. I saw that the pins are split in the center and some had a wider gap between the halves than the others. So I used a jewelers screw driver to open up the gap a little on all four pins. Finally, after two years of using a one sided heater I have heat on my side!

I fixed my F2 error by opening up the controller and just making sure all the connections were good/ not corroded and then used a pencil engraver to clean off the prongs on the padconnection that had oxidized and would not allow a good connection between the pad and controller
