    I have the same problem with my 92B heating pad controller -- the red light just blinks and I can't figure out how to reset it. Sunbeam's website offers no US customer support phone number ... HELP PLEASE! Dennis

    Sunbeam CAT93 heating pad with SW114 controller gets very hot then shuts off after about 10 minutes and won't reset until completely cool.

    The red light just blinks when i plug the CAT93 pad in with a sw114 controller.

    The Sunbeam heating pad will not reset. On high after a few minutes the red light on high won't let me shut the unit off or switch to another setting. Also when the red light blinks the unit shuts off and this is not the 2 hour shut off light

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.

My Sunbeat CAT93 Heating pad all of a sudden displayed "F!" on the "control pad". I followed the advice of "scorp_ca" -- it worked perfectly !!

Just unplug the pad, then, while holding down the "left" side of the rocker switch on the controller (at 9 o'clock), plug it in. (For me) It instantly "reset" to its normal display

Thanks, scorp !

I have done the following with the 811 type heating pad which had the same problem.
Push the controller button and keep it pressed, and plug in the heating pad. It seems to have somehow recycled it...

Hard to think how they could mess up on something as simple as a heating pad. You plug it in it should work. Its not rocket science. But now i'm stuck with a very upset stomach at 330 in the morning and no heat to remedy it because this heating pad isn't working. Maybe sunbeam should start making something less complicated than heating pads. Perhaps Macaroni pictures or hats made out of newspaper.

    Had the same problem and the solution offered by scorp_ca worked for me as well. Thanks.

  • Janet Hurguy Jan 06, 2014

    I'm going to give the scorp_ca remedy a try although I have unplugged it and it works after being plugged in. The only thing different is I didn't hold the control down. My heating pad keeps have F1 and now it had F2. I don't even know what that's suppose to mean!

SW115D is my model. I used the FIX of unplugging both end for 30seconds. It worked, even using a surge protector. Now I'm on the road to happy. Thanks for the help and the chuckles...so how do those frisbees actually fly?

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!

Light is flashing on temperature control of heating pad


Trust me! This thing is a piece of ****! I bought one and loved the heat options that I bought three more for my wife and two daughters and their families. The next day mine went out. Took it to Walmart and traded it for another. Still pretty happy, figured I got a bad one. Three months later not a single one is working all have blinking green lights and won't allow you to do ANYTHING but unplug it! Five and all died the exact same death. Go to Walmart and each time they act surprised! NO WAY!!! This is a chronic problem with this product. I'm contacting the company tomorrow and am going to demand an ecplaination as to why they have not take this item off the market!

Have you tried hitting the reset button on the controller? While it's plugged in via USB, get something small and hit the reset button on the back. (Right next to the front and center screw)

Power light blinks red


Hello, If you can turn it back on with the s momentary key or power button:
When it shuts off, do you need to push the power button once or twice to get it back on? Also, does anything else about the picture or sound change as it warms up?
If once, then the controller is shutting the TV down either as a result of a (thermally induced) fault in the controller or it sensing some other problem. Monitoring the voltage on the relay coil (assuming these is one) could help determine what is happening. The controller thinks it is in charge.
If twice, then the power supply is shutting down as the controller still thinks it is on and you are resetting it. A couple of possibilities here would be low voltage or high voltage regulation error (excessive high voltage is sensed and causes shutdown to prevent dangerous X-ray emission). A partially dried up main filter capacitor could also cause a shutdown but there might be other symptoms like hum bars in the picture just before this happened. Clipping a good capacitor across the suspect (with power off!) would confirm or eliminate this possibility.
If it uses a pull-knob (or other hard on/off switch), then this may be like pulling the plug and would reset any abnormal condition.

I had this problem with a heating pad too. I tried turning it off, unplugging it, then plug it back in and see if the light is still blinking. If it's not, set it to the temp you want. My heating pad was very temperamental that way, it didn't want to be set before it was plugged in. I hope this works for you.
