Question about Heating & Cooling
Hello, got an electric blanket, goes from setting to a flashing code of ff within 5 secs, cant get rid of or operate at that point
My new blanket works great. Then I changed my sheets and would get the F2 problem. Very consistent after 5 tries with F2 blinking by unplugging at wall outlet and comes on with F2 blinking. Let it rest a night and still the same.
Then I unplug it at the blanket. Hmm, notice a pin was lower than the others. PUSH BACK IN FIRM and tried again. Perfect.

Sunbeam wouldn't even warrenty it :( $300 blanket WTF! Removed circuit board inside of blanket and designed and built a new one. The electrical components they used ARE NOT WATERPROOF! As an electrical engineer I would have choked the guy who designed that ****. Build a high quality circuit board or have a professional do it. Cost about $4.00 and a half hour.

The error message I kept getting was "F2".
I checked the connection (blanket to the 4 prong connector) and it was unplugged. Reconnected it and made sure it was snug and the error message went away.

I am a handyman, I have had the same issue with my Sunbeam blanket as well. After several disconnect and reconnect, F2 would NOT go away and I almost went to say WTF. However, I have a solution for you all.
1. Disconnect the power to the blanket
2. wrap one lair of foil paper around the short pin
3. Plug in the connector (you can only plug it in one way with the large notch on bottom left)
4. Push the connector into the pins in the blanket really tight.
5. Whala.. no more F2...
Hope it helps.
