Replace it. It is likely the heating element failed while it was dormant. Electric blankets are well known for doing this.

I want to know if my throw is under warranty. I think I probably registered it as a gift, probably two years ago, a Christmas gift. Serial #D105VT07176010612B86112.


Hi Judith

your heated throw has a 5 year warranty! Warranty is covered on this page, specs are on the bottom link.

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?

My daughter bought me an Alessi cordless kettle for Christmas 2008. After 9 months it simply stopped heating water! The red light was lit on the base, so we knew the fuse hadn't gone, but it was completely...


Have you tried using it on a different socket outlet ? Possibly there is a problem with the wiring at this socket.
If the electricity supply "trips" at the consumer unit it is either the RCD which trips due to e.g. the base of the kettle becoming wet or alternatively the MCB tripping due to an overload which shouldn't happen unless there is a fault in the kettle.
When you got a replacement kettle presumably they replaced the base also?

One of the controls will not turn on. The cord is


Try swapping the controls and see if the problem stays with the control or the blanket side. In any case I would go on line and contact Sunbeam, they are a very reputable manufacturer and I would be surprised if they do not stand behind the product. You will be able to tell them if it is the control or blanket. If the other side of the blanket gets warm when you switch the controls it is the control if the same side gets warm it is the blanket. If neither side gets warm is is the blanket and control.
Good Luck,

My Sunbeam RN17280 dual control heating blanket does not get as warm as it did, after only 2-3 years. Is this a common problem and is there anything that can be done? Both sides are affected the same, and...


I got mine for Christmas (2010)... Worked fine the first week or two... Then I noticed that it doesn't get hot at all anymore... Thought maybe my husbands side controlled both (like a master safety)... Since he sets it at 3... Mine is set on 'high'... But no, put his on high, it gets super hot, my side barely warm.

Hi. You can locate a Sunbeam Service Centre via http://www.sunbeam.com.au/Pages/Support/Repairers.aspx

You're looking at $69,95 recommended retail.

BTW have you checked that it's not the blanket? Swap the controls over, if the problem follows the control it's the control. If the problem stays on the same side of the blanket, it's the blanket.

Also note Sunbeam has a 3 year warranty on electric blankets. If Date Of Purchase is less than 3 years ago call 1800025059 option 1 to speak to their Customer Service,

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
