Heating & Cooling - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

I would suggest getting rid of it, if it got that hot, the integrity of the metal is now in question. You dont know the reason why this happened and it could happen again. Some of the issues with these are due to poor engineering and manufacturing. IF you want to attempt to figure it out, you need to get a meter that reads resistance and check the heating element resistance and divide the voltage by that number to get the amperage, then you can look and see what the wire rating is for the ampacity and check to see if it is in specification.

The flame sensor is dirty and does not detect the flame. There are ways to clean it and you can also replace it. Look for a "stick" that is in front of one of the burners in the furnace. It will be in the path of the flame once the burner is lit. I believe it should be in front of the burner furthest away from the ignitor/pilot. You can clean it with alcohol and scotchbrite pads or very fine emery cloth or fine steel wool.

Unfortunately, unlikely to be anywhere else on the unit. If you can determine the brand name, more information might be available to visualize it.

Check to see if any paperwork has been left near it or in the home where it is connected - possibly a repair person wrote down a serial number when installed or repaired and put it on a receipt. Also, if any company locally serviced it, they may have the serial number in their records in their office if you call them.

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.
