Have a model 2150 heated mattress pad, one year old, with dual controls. One control is blinking and won't heat up the pad. I have unplugged twice and checked the plugs into the pad itself, and everything is secure. Anyone know why the light may be blinking? Must be a solution... thanks

Hi
First, I am not familiar with your particular Pad. But they all work in a similar fashion. Second... you would be wiser taking your pad to an electrician if you are not competent with electricity. (Especially 240V AC where I am.)
If it's only 120v AC then the sting is not as bad. I've had Both!
The Pad is not worth your life.
That said....
Obviously the AC power is OFF & disconnected first.
Use a multimeter in Ohms or Beeper Mode to look for an open circuit in the element(s) inside the blanket.
If the pad connector comes to the edge somewhere then this is where to test the pins. No AC Power Needed.
On Ohms mode it should show some small resistance in the element. Thats why it heats up....
If the element is internally broken (open circuit) then I doubt it can be repaired.
A multimeter can be a useful tool in a modern house these days.
They can be picked up pretty cheap now. $10 to $50.
The probes can check for AC & DC voltages.
The current function would never be used by the average person.
The Beeper Test uses the internal battery for open & closed circuit testing. The Ohms function will show the resistance of elements and the like.
If you are unsure how to use one then ask the supplier or an electrician / technician to show you.
Cheers

SOURCE: problems with Whirlpool dishwasher model GU1500XTKB0

will these units (silo and jtrip) start back on their own? if so, it is likely they are heating the water.
otherwise it sounds like a logic board, unless there is a defective door switch or sensor issue.
electronics seem to be a recurring problem with whirlpool.
i would ask whirlpool (electorlux) to either buy it back or fix it.
good luck
mark

Disconnect your circuit breaker for 20 minutes and then reset. It should reset your dishwasher.

SOURCE: control panel lights blinking

I have the same dishwasher with the same problem, try pushing the delay/resume button, then the drain/off button. When the lights go off start your wash cycle.

Why has my heated mattress pad stopped working?


Electronics fail. Sounds like the digital controller has failed. A Google search finds others with the same problem. Biddeford models come with a 5-year warranty, so if yours is less than 5 years old, I suggest you contact Biddeford by telephone: 800.789.6441 or visit their website: http://www.biddefordblankets.com/warranty.asp

Electric blanket won't heat


Take the help of your mattress pad company or look into instruction manual. Do not operate it unless you are familiar with it. You should call the customer care to know how to operate.

I need instructions on operating a remote to Sunbeam,Cal-King, electric mattress pad.


Which model Sunbeam mattress pad do you have? Sunbeam has some of their manuals here: http://www.sunbeam.com/manuals.aspx . The electric bedding share a manual. The direct link is http://www.sunbeam.com/BeddingManuals/SunbeamBedding/Universal.pdf .Make sure that you are using the master control for your side of the bed (that's the one closest to the plug for the wall outlet).

You may need to turn on the second control and set it to 0 at night. If you still are having a problem with the heat being uneven, you might need a replacement mattress pad. I know we've replaced several electric blankets or mattress pads due to problems with the control/uneven heat.

I hope this helps.

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.
