Generally means u have a bad connection at the wall or at the control module. Disconnect everywhere u can and reconnect

Try unplugging the power cord from the wall socket and check that the connection to the blanket is good and not loose. Then plug back into the wall socket and switch on. If error still occurs then there may be a problem with the blanket.

I had checked the "connection" at the blanket before but after reading this I unplugged it from the wall and re-checked the plug in at the blanket. It's not flashing anymore and it seems to be working.

From Sunbeam's site:

Q: What does "FF" mean on display of my control?
A: If you have a digital control, it is designed to flash "FF" on the display to notify you that a problem may have been discovered. Gradient controls and warming throw controls use a blinking indicator light for this purpose.

Follow the instructions on the flag tag to reset the control or follow the steps below.
  • Unplug the system from wall outlet.
  • Check that the control is well connected to the module.
  • Plug the power cord into the wall outlet.
  • Set the control to "on".
If the system still does not operate, disconnect the power cord and Contact Us.

The auto shutoff function may have failed and the blinking may be indicating the fact.

Probably means the pad has failed and will have to be replaced

What the actual F???

Sunbeam 722 Auto... | Answered on Jan 23, 2019

I am trying something now as I was told F2 requires you to check the blanket for wear and tear and plug it back in. 3 times doing this should be sufficient. If it still reads F2 it's "gone" Ours is new so it shouldn't be "gone" but here's what I found...Where the plug goes into the blanket there are 4 holes for 4 silver pins. I noticed the 3rd pin was a bit lower than the other 3. It will not move up with pliers so don't force it just return it. check there

If you have the same heater i do then in between the elements at the bottom there is a safety swith that bends when it heats up and breaks the connection Dont mess with it plugged in it will shock the hell out of you but if you bend it down it wont be able to lift off the circut and will stay running untill you turn it off
