Blanket flashes f2 when plugged in. I have plugged control into blanket and electrical outlet. It still flashes f2

Sometimes you have to unplug and re-plug the blanket multiple times. The control might reset itself. If that does not solve the problem, more than likely, you have a break in the heating element wire, or a control board issue. If you are proficient with an electrical tester, you can check continuity of the wire at the plug in. Depending on your model, you can also take a look inside the control for any broken solder connections, or loose wires. Otherwise, I'm afraid there is not much else to do.

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.

Why does the light keep flashing red on my sunbeam electric blanket control remote? It just keeps flashing on high I try ed unplugging from the outline and the blanket nothing works. It started doing this...

There is a problem with the blanket. Since it started doing this just after washing (as per instructions), I suspect that somehow - running it thru the washer caused the problem.

Since it is an electrical device, if allowing to air dry thoroughly doesn't let it work as expected, you should stop powering it - and use it only as a non-powered blanket or discard and replace.

Se My blanket is blinking F2 and I can't set the controls

To reset the control:
1) Unplug the blanket from the wall outlet.
2) Check that the control is well connected to the module. (Disconnect and re-connect it).
3) Plug the power cord into the wall outlet.
4) Set the control to "on".
Try 1-4 three times. If the blanket still does not operate, disconnect the power cord and contact Sunbeam Customer Care at 1-(800) 892-7684.

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.

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.
