    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

    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.

COME ON!! Macaroni pictures and newspaper hats? Stop being sarcastic and get real wouldja! Everybody knows popsicle stick frisbees are the only true way to deal with something like this!!

    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?

If it has a reset button, push it and try again. If it still does not work, return the heater where you bought it and exchange it. Douglas

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.

F2 Fault Code On Heating Pad


I am trying something now as I was told F2 requires you to check the blanket for wear and tear and plug it back in. 3 times doing this should be sufficient. If it still reads F2 it's "gone" Ours is new so it shouldn't be "gone" but here's what I found...Where the plug goes into the blanket there are 4 holes for 4 silver pins. I noticed the 3rd pin was a bit lower than the other 3. It will not move up with pliers so don't force it just return it. check there

Malfunction heating pad


Same F2, quick off problem here. Then I noticed that the gray plug on the power cord was not completely flush with the connector on the pad. I shoved them together until there is no gap. The unit's worked perfectly since then.
