SOURCE: Sunbeam Electric Blanket blinking

I had checked the "connection" at the blanket before but after reading this I unplugged it from the wall and re-checked the plug in at the blanket. It's not flashing anymore and it seems to be working.

From Sunbeam's site:

Q: What does "FF" mean on display of my control?
A: If you have a digital control, it is designed to flash "FF" on the display to notify you that a problem may have been discovered. Gradient controls and warming throw controls use a blinking indicator light for this purpose.

Follow the instructions on the flag tag to reset the control or follow the steps below.

  • 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, disconnect the power cord and Contact Us.

SOURCE: My Sunbeam electric blanket controls

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

SOURCE: 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.

If you have a digital control, it is designed to flash "E" on the display to notify you that a problem may have been discovered. Gradient controls and warming throw controls use a blinking indicator light for this purpose.

Follow the instructions on the flag tag to reset the control or follow the steps below.
  • 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, disconnect the power cord and contact sunbeam

When I plugged in the cord to the blanket, it displays a continuous blinking of the letter F


Sunbeams - blinking "F" means that the connection to the blanket was loose. Make sure you give it a good push to get the piece fully engaged.

Did you get helped last year? If so please ignore. Otherwise....

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,
