I had the same problem & decide to attempt a repair, i.e. try & bypass the time control. 1st of all I couldn't get into the unit, seems to be sealed, removed the little switch by force to see if there was any screws below it, none, tried to lever the unit apart &, again, no joy. I gave up, snapped the little switch back into place, & turned it on. Believe it or not it's working!!!!! Don't know for how long but here's hoping. Derek Moffitt

I followed the advice of someone answering a similar post, and it worked. Move the slider up and down rapidly about ten times, stop it on so it's on and see if it stops. I did it a handful of times, less than 30 seconds in all, and it worked :) Obviously a problem with the unit/slider.

We have an sunbeam electric blanket model BL 0750 We dont seem to be able to programme it to heat up. Control lights are flashing

Hi. If you have a double or queen size blanket, switch the controls from one side to the other. If the fault follows the control, then the control is faulty. If the fault stays on the same side of the bed, then the blanket may be faulty. Most recent Sunbeam models have 3 years warranty. Once you've checked the controls, if it's under warranty call Sunbeam Customer Service on 1800025059 option 1 to report a warranty issue.

Otherwise: if the control is at fault, a new BL0750 has a recommended retail of $75.20. Get in contact with your local Sunbeam Service Centre via
but if all else fails email me as I'm happy to help!

LG DLE2512W dryer approx 3 years old error message to "check filter". Dryer has stopped working. What is the problem? Do you have a schematic of the dryer I can download?

I just had this problem with my 5 year old today. I unplugged it (after checking the line and the regular filter to make sure that they were clear). since there didn't appear to be a real problem. It works fine now. It wasn't having any problems before the light started flashing and it doesn't appear to be having any now. Hope this helps

I have been getting over this problem by operating the switch slider very rapidly. Sometimes it has to be done back and forwards a dozen times before the light stops flashing.

Hi. You can locate a Sunbeam Service Centre via

You're looking at $69,95 recommended retail.

BTW have you checked that it's not the blanket? Swap the controls over, if the problem follows the control it's the control. If the problem stays on the same side of the blanket, it's the blanket.

Also note Sunbeam has a 3 year warranty on electric blankets. If Date Of Purchase is less than 3 years ago call 1800025059 option 1 to speak to their Customer Service,

Dreamland electric blanket not heating

Yes we had an electric duvet from this company and it stopped working. Was replaced very kindly and no fuss by John Lewis and the same thing happened. (They had said they wouldn't replace again) . Spoke to the company but the woman was very rude. Said that if we lived in a rural area that was our tough luck basically. (A power surge or something). I don't think that's acceptable but we have given up on it now. I think there are 'known' issues with these products that are beingswept under the carpet.
