    Have Sunbeam twin electric blankets. Just pulled them out for the winter. When I plugged them in, all I get is FF. They won't do anything else. No warmth and can't set. Any help you can give me would be wonderful! Thanks!!!

    I have a King Size Sunbeam electric blanket. It has started flashing F2 and will not heat. I can clear this by unplugging the blanket from the wall plug. However, the error is back within a day or two. This error does not affect the other side which is still working fine.

    Your plug is not pushed in all the way. These can be fussy. Try again. Or unplug, wait & try again. PUSH HARD until it makes good contact. If it's still having problems, could be the contacts are not connecting.

    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.

    I also just washed my blanket and plugged it back in...F2....wasted a bunch of time and then looked here online (what DID we do before GOOGLE?). I noticed the shorter prong, got out the needle nose pliers and gave the prong a few tugs....plugged the blanket back into the outlet and voila! No more F2. No need to get a new blanket. It's working perfectly.

    I had the same problem with flashing f 2. I unplugged it at the blanket and reconnected it. Nothing happened so remembering that many changes to a computer require restarting I unplugged it and replugged it and now works fine.

    F2 code. tried unplugging and re plugging many times. When the control unit is unplugged from the blanket I get a F2 code. When I put a meter on the control unit control unit works fine. Ran a continuity check on the blanket. No continuity. So it must be a broken wire in the blanket.

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.

    This guy is 100% correct. I was getting the F2 error code and resetting it wouldn't fix anything. Ohming out the circuit revealed that the power input prongs had become disconnected from the rest of the circuit board. I had to add the red wires shown in the picture and now it works great again. This was after only one winter and without washing it. I am afraid of what the corrosion on that circuit board will look like once I have to wash it.

So the history biographers write about will not be the way that it happened; it will be the way they remembered it.[14] Debates have also arisen concerning the importance of space in life-writing.[15]

    Daniel R. Meister in 2017 argues that:

    Biography Studies is emerging as an independent discipline, especially in the Netherlands. This Dutch School of biography is moving biography studies away from the less scholarly life writing tradition and towards history by encouraging its practitioners to utilize an approach adapted from microhistory.[16]

    Biographical research is defined by Miller as a research method that collects and analyses a person's whole life, or portion of a life, through the in-depth and unstructured interview, or sometimes reinforced by semi-structured interview or personal documents.[17] It is a way of viewing social life in procedural terms, rather than static terms. The information can come from "oral history, personal narrative, biography and autobiography” or "diaries, letters, memoranda and other materials".[18] The central aim of biographical research is producing rich descriptions of persons or "conceptualise structural types of actions" which means to "understand t

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.

Heck yes! Washed my Sunbeam electric blanket for the first time and upon replugging it in, received the f2 blinking message. Pulling out the prongs gently with the needle nose pliers definitely did the trick! Super stoked it worked, awesome advice!!

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.
Any questions, you can contact me at " the_housedoctor@att.net"

    The real fix is unplug-replug-turn on- set at 7 or lower. When you set at 8.9, or H it gets too hot and gives FF error. Its the fix.

Not heating up showing FF on both control remote


The FF may be an indication that the heating element has failed.

The 2 controls to our electric blanket are flashing "FF". What does that mean, plus there's no heat at all from it.


With the Sunbeam blankets that I have owned, FF meant that there was a bad connection somewhere. Have you tried the unplugging and replugging the Controller cord back into the blanket? Make sure it is plugged in GOOD AND TIGHT. If that part is connected as tightly as it can go, you may have a defective element.

I bought a queen dual control warming blanket . I barely used it the first time I bought it a year ago. I put it into my closet for storage after the first winter. I put it on the bed today getting ready...


The flashing lights usually means theres a problem and the blanket has shut itself off so it wont cause a problem...Like burn down your house.

I love electric blankets but I have had little luck with them. Its only a matter of time before they get like this. I have never gotten one to work again after it has started to blink.

If you still have the box maybe there is a warranty.

My husband and i were just recently given the queen size, dual remote heating blanket from you guys. When we try to turn on either of our remotes, it flashes F2 consistently unless unplugged. Is there...


The first link has some info about the F2 code.Apparently it used to be seen as FF but was changed.It is a power problem.It is still the same problem,which is REALLY not good.The next couple of links are forums which people also have the same problem as you.I would seriously get rid of that blanket.I saw someone mention EMF.I know exactly what EMF is and it is not an issue with this blanket at all,and is present in many things.A microwave probably has more,and still is not an issue.Anything that plugs into a wall has some form of EMF present,so do not even worry about it.

Sunbeam electric blanket flashing ff when I try to turn it on.


Ok folks. I fixed it. I unplugged and then waited and replugged and started at high or 9 and then it went to FF in 60minutes or a couple of minutes. I scratched my head and tried this fix--instead of starting again at 9 or H I started at level 7. That did it. FF most probably indicates excess current, and the H or 9 probably is too high to set. So unplug -repluf-turn on and dial 7 or lower. It should fix it. Or buy a new one.
