Several people reported F could not be resolved. One suggested contacting the manufacturer using the form on its web site.

I had same issue w/ red blinking light on my Sunbeam controller SW114, pad CAT93. Was about to toss away but then got it to work perfectly by doing this:1. With unit UNplugged, press & hold the single grey controller button2. While pressing the controller button, plug the unit inUnit will power up in the 'warm' (green light) setting; pressing the controller button will cycle you thru the others modes.

SOURCE: my sunbeam matress heated pad only flashes F1 and

you either have a power issue or the pad will not go to higher levels because of a heating element issue within the pad its best to replace because if it continues or gets worse then you could be looking at a future fire or electric shock please be carefull and take the safe way and replace it!

I have older sunbeam duel control matress pad. the control is simple with a dial that turnes for low or higher settings. it shows a red line that is small for low and gets thicker as the setting gets higher. there is a button for on and off. I set up the cover and turned on. the green on lite is flashing and there is no heat i do have it on high and it now will not turn off by the button.

Why is My heating pad flashing F it's not that old. I've tried in many outlet, but still does it

Hello, Pat -

You have not stated the manufacturer name of your heating pad. Knowing that will help in providing you the right information.

I have found complaints about a Sunbeam King Size XpressHeat heating pad, with statements from the owners about an F appearing on the temperature display for the heating pad and the pad no longer heating.

In case yours is a Sunbeam King Size XpressHeat heating pad, see the complaints here:
Scroll down the page to see the Reviews.

I hope you saved the instructions which came with your heating pad and the sales receipt. The pad may still be covered by the manufacturer's warranty. Most companies require a copy of the sales receipt when an owner needs warranty coverage.

You can add more information by choosing Comment and typing in details (maker and model number) for your heating pad.

Best wishes.

When I plugged in the cord to the blanket, it displays a continuous blinking of the letter F

Sunbeams - blinking "F" means that the connection to the blanket was loose. Make sure you give it a good push to get the piece fully engaged.

Sunbeam heating pad flashing F

Unfortunately I bought this heating pad three months ago and it too has an F in the display which I think means 'failure' but I do not know why. Also this is brand new and has worked fine for three months. Now what?
Does anyone out there have a comment to help me and this original person asking this question?

I have a Rest and Relieve Therapeutic King Heated Mattress Pad that I have lost the remote control for. where can I purchase a replacement remote?

You should try to contact the supplier of your mattress cover. If they have a website, you can check their website to check if they provide the separate remote for that particular mattress. Even if they don\'t, you can contact them asking the solution.

I need instructions on operating a remote to Sunbeam,Cal-King, electric mattress pad.

Which model Sunbeam mattress pad do you have? Sunbeam has some of their manuals here: . The electric bedding share a manual. The direct link is .Make sure that you are using the master control for your side of the bed (that's the one closest to the plug for the wall outlet).

You may need to turn on the second control and set it to 0 at night. If you still are having a problem with the heat being uneven, you might need a replacement mattress pad. I know we've replaced several electric blankets or mattress pads due to problems with the control/uneven heat.

I hope this helps.

Malfunction heating pad

Same F2, quick off problem here. Then I noticed that the gray plug on the power cord was not completely flush with the connector on the pad. I shoved them together until there is no gap. The unit's worked perfectly since then.
