Maybe you have one that isn't working right? I have a twin size that heats up in a minute or so. I think you're right about some parts of the blanket not getting total heat but I figured that was just because I only turned mine up to 3. A trick I did on cold nights was turn it up to high before I got into bed to warm up it up and then turned it down once I was in. Maybe that will help??

I just purchased the queen size and I'm returning it because it never does really heat up. It just gets to a "barely warm" stage when set on high, and never seems to get any warmer. I thought that perhaps mine was defective, but since you said that yours isn't heating well either, I'm guessing that maybe it's just a lousy product! I guess it's true that you get what you pay for, and unfortunately, electric blankets are getting rather pricey these days!

Not sure why yours does not heat up quickly. Mine is warm in approximately 45 seconds to a minute. Maybe try starting it out on High then lower it. I registered mine for the warrantee although I don't think it's necessary but perhaps contact Sunbeam for a replacement if High does not heat yours up faster.

Q What does a flashing light mean on my EasySet™, PrimeStyle™,
PrimeStyle™ AO or EliteStyle™ control ?
A These controls are designed to notify you in the event that a problem has been discovered
by flashing the light on the control. Follow instructions on the flag tag to reset control.
First, check the heated product for visual damage.
If no visual damage is found, unplug the system from wall outlet. Check that the
control is well-connected to the module. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet
and turn the control On. If the product still does not operate after 2 or 3 times
trying to reset, disconnect the power cord and contact Sunbeam Consumer Care.

In my past experience with electric blankets and heating pads, the flashing usually means something is not connected properly. Unplug the side that is blinking and then try re-connecting it. If the blinking continues and the blanket is not heating on that side, you may need to exchange it for a new one. Once in a whil the pins get bent or simply won't line up right.
