So, what are the reasons for the Beautyrest heated blanket blinking 

Open Circuit

The probable reason for the Beautyrest heated blanket to blink is an open circuit. Open circuit issues are common phenomena when a damaged wire is inside the blanket. These wires are not designed for frequent twisting, which occurs when you attempt to clean them.

Solution: Sadly, there are no solutions; you need to throw away the blanket and get a new one.

Improper connections

The Beautyrest heated blanket will blink red when loose connections between the power cord and the blanket and controllers.

Solutions: The solution is pretty simple. It would help if you secured the connections between the power cord and the blanket. Double-check all the cables before plugging back the blanket.

Disconnected throw

If the throw is disconnected or broken, the controller will flash red. And it is very easy to understand as even after reconnecting power cords, your blanket will keep blinking.

Solutions: You must reconnect the throw to the controller before resetting it by disconnecting the AC power plug and putting it in.

Blown Fuse

A blinking heated blanket or a not working blanket also means there can be a blown a fuse. Check the fuse inside the control box of the blanket, and if it’s blown, you will need to replace it.

Voltage fluctuations will create overheating. As a result, the fuse will explode. A blown a fuse is not a very common issue, and if you see it happening constantly, then there is a problem with the circuit it is connected in. 

There may be too many appliances operating from that same circuit. Use a different circuit connection if this is the case.

Solution: Open the control box, remove the old fuse, and replace it with a new fuse of the same power and resistance ratings.
