No but taking it back for a new one in exchange does!

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.

What does the light flashing on a sunbeam electric blamket controller mean and why wont the blanket heat up


The flashing red light is designed to notify you in the event that
a problem has been discovered by flashing the light on the base unit.

Before resetting the unit. First, check the blanket/mattress
pad for visual damage.
If no visual damage is found, unplug the system from wall outlet.
Check that the base unit is well connected to the module. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet. Set the base unit to "On." If the system still does not operate after two or three times trying to reset, disconnect the power cord and get it checked out by a specialist!

Red lights flahing on xbox, has been fixed before had to send away...any easier solution?


Lot of people try the blanket trick or towel trick, they wrap the thing in a towel to purposly overheat the thing to make it work. There is no easyness to this issue if the unit is having this overheating problem and you sent it away chances are you did not get a good repair, allow me to give you a reference www.videogamerepair.com they will repair it and garentee it for 90 days or more if the unit fails they will help you.

Sorry I wish there was a easier solution to this issue but honestly there is not. Please do be considerate even know it seems like this was not of help rate it based on other avenues, thanks

Sunbeam Electric Blanket Model 972 A5 Type 692 (or 592) with temperature control 1 to 9 with 75 mins and 12 hrs and off control positions. The light blinks red and the blanket won't heat up. Please...


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,

3 red lights.


I would not reccommend that you try it, as it does not work usuaully, in rare cases when it does it does not completely fix your console. Hope this was helpful, what is your problem? If it is the three red lights. i wouold get in touch with microsoft as they have extended their warranty to three years for the three red lights problem, and they will either repair or replace your console.
Good Luck
