We have a Biddeford blanket with 2 controls. One control has an E showing with no heat. Can you help me out?

Below is a customer response I found on a customer review site:
"E message fixed
We had the same problem. Our controller display just said "E". for us it meant that the controller cord was disconnected from the mattress pad at the foot of the bed. Try that."

The site also had many negative reviews about Biddeford customer service:

We appreciate the assistance with this - ours displayed "E" as well and it was the connection on the mattress being not plugged in all of the way.

My electric blanket is flashing the letter P and I can't select temperature.

What brand is your electric blanket? I see Flashing FF light. But I did not see any P anywhere.



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".

"P" could be your pre-heat mode. The heat setting will change to the last setting after 1.5 hours. If you want to change to another setting during the pre-heat period, press the up
or down button.

I also did not see a P code in my research.
I would contact the company itself.

Try unplugging it for several hours and then plug back in. My mattress pad heater does this once in awhile. Unplugging it resets it. Also check your cords to ensure plugged into the blanket well.

For some reason my Biddeford blanket thing says E. When I turn it on and off I click the top button that seems to toggle the screen from E. and .

The 2 buttons that have up and down arrows do nothing. Please help!

It means that the controller cord is disconnected from the mattress pad at the foot of the bed.

I have a Sunbeam electric blanket, exceptional care; it is only a year old. There is no way any damage occurred to it. It has never been laundered by anyone, nor put in the clothes dryer. I am exceptionally careful about the power cord. I live alone and I know to care for things.


Then the dreaded (knowledge after-the-fact) FF code appeared. I've tried to reset it per knowledgeable internet. I've already replaced it (abt $30) after Sunbeam suggested I send it to them. Shipping would be about half+/- that. What is my best option? Should I just throw it away ?

Thnx for concurring with my opinion/instinct or other.

I have a Jason electric blanket. My control on the electric blanket is flashing a "P". When I pull the control out of the blanket it still flashes. Do I have a problem or is there a way to reset the control?

My Biddeford electric blanket keeps showing me "E", but is plugged in to the wall and my blanket!

This is the link to their page. They even have a toll-free phone number.

There are several things you can try before giving up.
Unplug unit from wall socket - unplug cord from blanket - plug cord back into blanket (be sure it is the proper way as some have a certain top and bottom) - plug unit back into electric socket.


If still getting error message then you may have to call Biddeford for help.
You do not say how old your blanket is but maybe it is still under the 5 year warranty and can be safely repaired/replaced. Here is a link to check warranty information and also a contact number if it is out of warranty.

If your blanket is older than 5 years you may need to check this recall information.

I have a dual control electric blanket. One side works fine, but the other control screen displays an E and will not work. Can this be corrected?


By Julie

I have called the customer service number 3 times on three different days, in response to their menu choices and have not received any response. My Biltmore warming blanket controller displays "E". I have unplugged it and plugged it back in and checked the connection to the blanket, which is secure, and still the controller shows the error.

I would appreciate any help.
