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

Q What does “FF” mean on my Electronic Digital Control?
A
The digital controls are designed to notify you in the event that a problem has been
discovered by flashing “FF” on the display. Follow instructions on the flag tag to reset
control. First, check the blanket/mattress pad for visual damage. If no visual damage is
found, unplug the system from wall outlet. Check that the control is well
connected to the module. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet. Set the
control to “On.” If the system still does not operate after 2 or 3 times
trying to reset, disconnect the power cord and contact Sunbeam Consumer
Care.

SOURCE: sunbeam electric blanket flashing ff

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.

The only thing you can do, other than pull all the wire out to test it, is check the temperature control. If you have another you know works or can borrow one to test the blanket, that's the easiest. Else, you will need to use a "Glow Stick". A Glow Stick is an electrical tester that does not require physical contact with a bear conductor to detect voltage. They are available at Hard Ware stores, Menard's, Home Depot, etc. Plug the blanket controller into the wall outlet and touch the 2 wires near the thermostat. If it glows, the cord is good and the outlet has power. Now test the wires coming out of the thermostat that go to the blanket. Turn the thermostat way up and down and see if the light glows. If no, the thermostat is bad. If it glows, indicating power has made it through the thermostat, continue to test along those wires to the blanket. If you have power at the plug on the blanket, continue onto the blanket along the wires that provide the heat. The light will continue to glow on-till you get to the break in the line. When the light goes out, that's the break point. If you do find a break in the blanket and would like me to walk through the repair, I will be happy to. The Glow Stick is a good investment for safely testing anything electrical without the risk of being shocked. Please rate this for me. I am new to the site and need to improve on writing what I am thinking. Let me know how it goes for you, OK?

Fix flashing f2


Unplug it, and wait 15 minutes. Then plug it back in. It should come on L. Let it sit another 15-20 minutes. You should be able to turn it up after that.

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.

What does the light flashing on a sunbeam electric blamket controller mean and why wont the blanket heat up


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!

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.

F2 Fault Code On 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

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.
