Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Try disconnecting it from the power, then re-connecting the cord to the blanket, from both the controller and from the electric power (if that cord is disconnectable, that is), and see whether, after being plugged in again, it works properly.

- Does it?
