Sunbeam Heated Throw Blinking Red

Plug the power cord into the wall outlet. The control is in the blanket. Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet. The display on your control will clear if you see flashing symbols.

The controller will blink red if the throw is disconnected or the internal heating wires have broken (open circuited).

The following order of operations fixed the problem for us:
  • unplug the plug to the throw and unplug from the electricity.
  • plug into the throw.
  • plug into the electricity.
