Question about Heating & Cooling
Heating pad CAT93 Controller model SW114 will not reset after shutting off automatically. When plugged in red light just blinks!
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!!

Have the same problem. I have contacted Sunbeam support via email and they are very friendly and helpful so far. I will post when resolved.

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?
