Only 1/2 of the pad is working. I did check all connections and all are good. I have an Induction tester for ac power this showed power on 1/2 of the pad and NO POWER on the other half. In fact this tester will find an open circuit but no such thing, there is no power on 1/2 of the plug going to the pad, the tester shown only power on 1/2 of the 4 wire cable going to the pad from the controller. The system also has a indicator of bad connections by plashing the control light this is NOT HAPPENING. It is a dual control and it may be in one of them that the problem exist

Re: mattress pad 1/2 not heating. (K85KQP)
It is sure to be a problem with the controller. If you can open the controller up, you can compare the good controller on the side that operates to find the problem with the bad side. If you have a multimeter, you can surely fix the problem. Check for output where the wire comes out of the controller if you can get inside of the controller. It may be that the cord is bad. That is the most abused part, because it is continually being moved and bent.

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.
1- Is the small "induction motor" running when the stat is calling for heat? if yes - check the small hose running from it to insure it is hooked up well on both ends and has no air leaks. If no - the motor is probably bad. 2 - All check out good above. then the small tube runs to 1 or 2 small disk shaped pressure switches locate these and then see if they have continuity while you pull / **** / from the tube other end. Small amount of air should be suffice.
My guess is the pressure switch is bad or the motor is done. Now i have found once ever but i did find the main logic board was the actual problem.
The brown wire on a Goodman is tipically for the emergency heat option on your heat pump. First thing I would check is making sure it is wited correctly. Verify your stat is heat pump capable. Many of the cheaper stats only work for ac or just a heat pump. Anything beyond that would be a more serious electrical problem and should be looked at by someone with the proper training and tools.
I don;t think there is any repair that is possible and you will need to replace your mattress pad. I would recommend you contact sunbeam directly at sunbeam.com and see if this model has a lifetime guarentee.I tried but they wanted to know how old it was and other info that I could not provide.
If you have had this good of service from their product then I would let them know and maybe they will work with you.
I have had good results contacting companies and praising their products and it don't cost much to try. Thank you
red is 24volt power, white is load,I.E. relay,touch the red and wht wires together, the furnace should start, if it don't the problem is the heater, Rheat-Rcool you have a heat/ac thermostat, no ac forget Rc,try turning thermostat all the way up, dig up a multi-meter or powered light tester, touch Rh with one wire of tester,touch the other wire to different terminals until it lights,hook up your wires, you should have heat
pull the rubber hose off the pressure switch. and blow into the Induced draft motor housing if you cant you can pull the hose off the IDM and try to clear it with a small paper clip. reconnect and try again. you can also get the flash code off the board while the unit is running but not working.
