My Basset Hound, 4 months old, just ate the plug off the blanket. I need help :)
Here is one for sale on eBay: https://www.eba 91519/1239042987
Thank you Judy. Never dawned on me to check ebay. Couldn't open that link but went right to it on ebay search. Further checking last night the name of the company was on the bottom of the controller. E & E Company new for 20.00.
thank you very much for your effort, Fond regards. Bob.
I too have had this happen. I took my blanket to my local thrift stores and found the one I needed. Hope that helps. PBP
Well Basset Hounds are adorable so I'm sure he/she is worth the 20.00. It is probably better to buy it new and keep it in a safe place until your baby is better trained.
Where do I go to get a replacement power cord for an electric blanket?
Large hardware stores should have them.
I got one on eBay a couple years back for a great price.
Sadly, thrift stores separate them to make more money. I say shame on them but whatever.
That said, you can take your blanket with you and test the cords they have to see if they fit and then plug them in to see if they work. I have done this several times and had success each time.
Hope that helps.
eBay has a lot of these listed but you will need the make/brand and model number to be sure you are buying the correct one for your blanket. Sometimes that information can be found on the tag but if not then you may have to try your local thrift stores as some of them still have them.
Search under name/brand and # - eBay has them listed under electric blanket cords (or controls) or replacement cords controls:
I have a Therapedic heated throw and the controller does not work. Do you know how I can get a replacement controller. The throw is from Bed Bath and Beyond.
I recently had the same problem (February 2016) and I was able to email the vendor and have the entire throw and controller replaced.
What is the name of the vendor I need to get one
1-800-299-1378 Mon-Fri 8-5pm
I have the same throw and the controller quit. Please advise who the vendor is. Thanks
I need a replacement controller for Serra foot warmer, model JC-PFI-NJD-01,120v 60hz 50w.
Could you call Serta and see if its still under warranty? Or if they have the part for sale.
eBay would be a good place to start.
There are 2 controls presently listed on eBay but the cost is $24.00 and there is a new complete unit for $34.95 so maybe you might want to think about what to buy.
Have you Googled the blanket manufacturer to find the website? Most manufacturers have a website, and on the website they sell replacement parts.
When my controllers stop working, I have had luck finding a replacement at Salvation Army Store or the like. I take the blanket itself or the controller so I can get the exact same replacement and try it out and make sure it works. They usually only cost a couple dollars.
Sunbeam doesn't. I need a replacement control cord for my heated throw and they only offer product support & order support. No actual parts.
I've had the heating blanket since 2012 and have rarely used it, but now in January of 2016 it has been blizzarding cold and I decided to use the 3 tier heating control blanket. All of a sudden one of the cords has not shown red for power on. I tried putting in a new fuse, but nothing. I feel it has to do with the cord. I've tried to find the replacement, but am unable to find it. The model is ACHNWSK input 220-240V-50HZ 70W. Serial no. S0068218.
Can you help? Much appreciated.
I've found electric blankets and controllers are not well documented. While all blankets work on the same principles, that is where the similarities end. Some are dual blankets (his'n hers), some sense room temperature, some controllers contain timers, etc. If you know the model number of your blanket, go on eBay and type that in for a search. Most (used) sell for $10 to $20 inc freight. But, you might also consider the value of your time. You can spend a morning on this and perhaps still not be sure of a match. Alt: list your controller on eBay and buy a new blanket.
Where can I purchase replacement controls??
I have an electric warming throw. I need the plug and cord, F9405.
Take the blanket to your local thrift store and find one that works. If you tell them what you are doing, it's fine to bring in something. Good luck!
I have an electric blanket that I need a plug and cord for
We have a king size heated blanket and one control just quit. The control says it fits either a twin blanket or 1/2 of this king.
You do not provide the blanket maker, however, just search online for the manufacturer and contact for a replacement.
You will need the brand name to order a new control, and probably the model number as well.
I have an old electric blanket whose cord my dog chewed (of course). I don't know the brand, but I have included a photo of the 2 pronged female plug whose cord I need. Please take a look. I would apprecaite any help available. Thanks.
Do what I have done many times. Take the blanket to your local thrift store and try out the cords. You are sure to find one soon. Good luck!
I need to replace the controller. Model BA0350

I take the blanket into the local thrift shop and find the matching cords. Never had one that this didn't work with.
Where can I find a replacement JC Penney's electric blanket wide 2- prong power cord?
By Carrie from Gary, IN
The information should be on the tag. You bought it at JC Penney, but what brand is the blanket???
On the control it says Sleep-Rite. There is a hole in the cord right next where you plug it into the blanket and I don't want to use it. The blanket has three places to plug in. Two holes are close together and the other is off to itself a little bit.
Try the Sleep-Rite site: http://www.sleep-rite.com
I am trying to locate a replacement control for the 950 West Point electric blanket.
By Dolores R
An easy online search reveals that West Point no longer makes electric blankets and also notes that the controllers have been a problem for many customers. Try this site for more information:
One of the controls for a Living Quarters electric blanket quit so we are looking for a control. It's in a black box with red and blue control buttons with on/off in middle. The plug that connects to the blanket is a large 4 conductor. It is a digital display.
By Leon K
This may be difficult to find. I see blanket controls at Thrift stores sometimes and some controls will fit different makers but only you could tell if this were the case. eBay also has controls listed. Have you tried the Living Quarters web site?
My dog chewed up the control for my Westpoint home electric blanket. I need a new 900 control; where can I get one? It is a dual control with 2 plug ins at the end of the blanket.
Have you tried Ebay yet? You could also get in touch with the manufacturer of the blanket, and get a brand new one from them also.
I need controls for a Sleep Philosophy electric plush heated ivory king blanket. Any ideas on where to find one?
By Debbie S. from Fairmont, WV
When I need new controls, I draw a picture of the plug in or take a picture of it on my cell phone and go to the thrift stores or goodwill stores. They have some and I match the picture with the plug in and I have a new control. Good Luck.
I bought an electric blanket at Carson's last winter, no name on tag on blanket, but the controller that went bad says Living Quarters on it. I am looking for new controller, any ideas where I can get one? Or does anyone have address or phone number of the company? It has 4 prongs. Thanks!
Do a search online putting in "livingquarters electric blanket" the results will give you the names of stores that sell that brand, They are relatively high end blankets. You can go to the store and look up the info on their packaging.
I have a JCP dual control electric blanket. One controller no longer works. It has a 2 prong plugin. Is there a replacement for it?
I have always been able to find replacement controls at Salvation Army, Goodwill or Unique stores. Just make sure you get an exact match at the connection. Until you find one put the blanket on sideways and at least both people can have heat but it will be a warm upper body or warm feet? Your choice. JK Good Luck!
I need 2 replacement cords for a dual king. My puppies chewed through them I need them ASAP. Can someone help with a source for these?
Just a "been there done that, thank goodness no one was harmed" recollection, but don't mix and match replacement cords and electric blankets. This error could lead to unforeseen electrical fires and burning beds. Either secure replacement cords from the manufacturer of the particular blanket or purchase a new blanket with the appropriate cords. Substitutes are not an option if safety, as it should be, is the priority. There is nothing frugal or thrifty or responsible about playing with these combustible entities. Please, be careful and cautious and non reluctant to spend money as safety is at risk. You will be glad you did and so will those you save from senseless pain and suffering.

I found an electric blanket in my mom's garage. It has no tags and it is missing the controllers. How do I find out the brand and model # so I can find a replacement controller?

I am looking for a replacement power cord for a St. Mary's electric blanket. It's two prong. Can anyone help?
By Deb from Wilkes-Barre, PA
If you purchased the electric blanket for yourself, can you remember where you bought it. Do you have any information that came with the blanket?
There are places that fix appliances. Look in your phone book under appliance repair, give them a call and ask if they sell replacement electric cords. You might have to take a drive and bring along the electric blanket and the broken cord. (10/10/2010)
I find mine at GoodWill or stores like that. Take your blanket in with you and they will let you plug it in to make sure the cord works on the blanket. They usually only cost 2-3 dollars. Good luck. (10/10/2010)
