I would guess that the wires in the pad have been damaged. The weakest point is right where the cord connects into the pad - it is easily twisted and bent. This may be worn down, and if that is the case you may be able to realign the wire for an easy fix. It the cord is undamaged then the problem is in the pad itself. If that is the case, there isn't much you can do without taking the whole thing apart.

Depress heat heating pad flashing won't go on

Hello, Linda -

Do you perhaps mean an Xpress Heat heating pad? If so . . .


How to Use the Heating Pad
When you get your package, the cord and the heating pad are not connected. Before plugging the cord into the outlet, make sure that the cord and the heating pad are connected. Yes, the control/cord must be connected to the heating pad before plugging it in. If not done in this order, it might cause a blinking F in the display and the pad will not heat up.

More . . .
Flashing F
Some users experience a flashing F (meaning failure), in the display. Make sure that the cord with the display is connected to the heating pad BEFORE plugging it into the electric socket. The flashing F can be avoided by doing this. If you still get a Flashing F, disconnect from the electric socket, make sure the cord is tightly connected to the heating pad, wait 2 minutes and then plug it back in.

How to turn on heat with controller on my heating pad model cat92. It shows F-1

Hello, Martha -

I hope I am correct in thinking your heating pad is a Sunbeam.

If you have not yet checked the connection for the electric cord into the heating pad to make sure it is connected fully and properly, I suggest you do so.

Sunbeam heating pad flashing F

Unfortunately I bought this heating pad three months ago and it too has an F in the display which I think means 'failure' but I do not know why. Also this is brand new and has worked fine for three months. Now what?
Does anyone out there have a comment to help me and this original person asking this question?

-The passanger seat only heat the bottom of the seat. It does not have a heat pad in the back portion.

-For the driver seat, it sound like the bottom heat pad had burn out and need to be replace. The back portion and bottom share the same fuse. It takes time and the right tool to replace this heat pad, trust me I know.

Have heating pad model 818-7. blinking red light for high when connected- but no heat. what to do. I love this soft, terry cloth hour glass heating pad controller model number: SW204. e12107 is also on...

I had this problem with a heating pad too. I tried turning it off, unplugging it, then plug it back in and see if the light is still blinking. If it's not, set it to the temp you want. My heating pad was very temperamental that way, it didn't want to be set before it was plugged in. I hope this works for you.

Sunbeam Heating pad will not reset

I have a Sunbeam heating pad with the SW204 controller that the High light blinks when it is plugged in. I called Sunbeam and the first thing they said is it cannot be plugged into a surge protector. Next, to reset it unplug it from the wall, then unplug the controller from the heating pad. Wait 30 seconds, then plug the controller back into the heating pad and then into the wall. It did the trick. However, when I move it to the bedroom plug it does the same blinking. Sunbeam is sending me a replacement heating pad. They appear to be very good with Customer Service since it is more than a year old.
