Question about Heating & Cooling
YES replacing the control will help.The other possibility is faulty burned out heating element.But flashing light is indication of faulty control unit.if the light is operating then there will be a fault in either the blanket or control.
The indicator light on blanket is flashing as soon as the blanket is turned on:---
This is indicating that the control unit is now faulty due to the blankets heating element safety sensor activating because it has detected overheating or the blanket being allowed to ruck or a crease.
All Dreamland Ready for Bed blankets are protected from overheating by Sleep Guardian Technology which will shut off the blanket before it becomes unsafe to use.
The most common reason for the overheat sensor activating is when the blanket is operated at a pre heat setting, whilst the user is in bed, this causes localised overheating causing damage to the blankets overheat system*, the advance technology of the control unit will pick up any fault within the blanket and shut down and eventually fail altogether, the time out indicator will then start to flash.
Once the control is faulty it will not work on any blanket, also fitting a control to the blanket or half of blanket that has caused the fault will result in that control picking up the same fault and eventually failing. This may not be straight away as it will depend on the damage that has been caused to the heating element sensor system.
