I have a Sunbeam Electric Blanket that Ive had for four years

This answer was rated:

I have a Sunbeam Electric Blanket that I've had for four years (4). Two days ago the control unit began blinking and I cannot get it to turn off or on. I remember reading something about what is wrong if it blinks, but I can no longer find my booklet that came with it. My husband has checked all the plugs, but it continues blinking. Can you please help?

Do you have a model number for your electric blanket?

Reading Sunbeam's information the flashing light indicates a bad connection. They suggest to unplug the control from the wall. Unplug the blanket from the control. Make sure the connection is good at the blanket connection and reconnect. Plug the unit back in. If this doesn't solve the problem they say to contact Sunbeam directly here.
Let me know how this works for you.
