Question about Heating & Cooling
Same problem, but now it is ok. I emailed Sunbeam and was told that if my blanket was not plugged directly into a wall outlet it was not getting enough power and I needed to plug it into a wall outlet taking these steps:
1) Unplug from the surge protector/extension cord 2) Unplug from the blanket 3) Plug back into the blanket 4) Plug into a wall outlet

In all honesty get a different blanket..my pad did the saem thing and I received a 2nd degree burn across my belt line.
Checek the internet, and you'll see how many suits have been filed against Sunbeam for the same things as far back as 2003.....might be worth getting rid of the blanket

First, we had a Sunbeam that lasted 8-years - now we have boughtTHREE
different blankets (all Sunbeam) and could not get any of them to
work (permanently) Lights stay on, F-2 is on and unplugging and
starting over only lasted a few hour and we were back to the
same proglem - will try to find a different brand

None of these troubleshoots work. I tried all of them. I'm really angry and disappointed. I need the heat because it helps with RA pain. now I won't be able to sleep comfortably. it is a washable blanket. I followed the instructions. make a better, sturdier product, Sunbeam.

What I did was this.....
1. Unplug from the wall and from the bed spread.
2. Wait 30 seconds then plug into the wall but not the bed first.
3. Then plug into the bed correctly, there is a wrong way.
4. then on main controller hold the power on button for ten seconds then let off.
5. Then on second controller hold power button for ten seconds then let off.
6. That is a hard reset and now should work accordingly.
Do not use a surge protector.
Do not use an extension cord.
Do not run cords in between box and main mattress. Instead run underneath the bed.
Do not allow cords to become pinched in any way.

Unplug at wall, reconnect shpould do it. It must have "read" between wall and blanket plug that interferes with be boot, so just kill power throughout entire line, restart good luck, works for me twice now.
