  • Anyhow, the price proved to be awful appealing and I had read how the soothing warmth from heating pads could penetrate deeply into the body and relax as well as ease sore and aching muscles, so I definitely wanted to get one at the time
  • I dislike pills, but the heating pad sounded almost pleasurable to an extent, so it was an easy decision to go with the heating pad to take care of those annoying aches and pains that would arise when I wasn't feeling well, usually during the cold winter season or simply when I didn't sleep properly and would awake with an annoying ache
  • Unfortunately, I got very little soothing, therapeutic heat out of this thing
  • There was nothing in the instruction manual that addressed the problem and what I assumed was some sort of message or error code displayed on the display wasn't even explained in the instruction manual

      The Sunbeam Flexible Heating Pad gave me more aggravation than relief. I purchased this heating pad because, admittedly, it was one of the more affordable heating pads that I came across in the stores. I recall paying around twenty dollars, although I’m pretty sure that was a sale price. Anyhow, the price proved to be awful appealing and I had read how the soothing warmth from heating pads could penetrate deeply into the body and relax as well as ease sore and aching muscles, so I definitely wanted to get one at the time. I certainly preferred the idea of applying a heating pad over taking some pain killers! I dislike pills, but the heating pad sounded almost pleasurable to an extent, so it was an easy decision to go with the heating pad to take care of those annoying aches and pains that would arise when I wasn’t feeling well, usually during the cold winter season or simply when I didn’t sleep properly

      and would awake with an annoying ache.

      Unfortunately, I got very little soothing, therapeutic heat out of this thing. The very first time I plugged it in and turn it on, it stayed on for around fifteen minutes, then it conked out. The heat began to weaken, and it cooled down completely. I couldn’t get it to turn back on, although I did have a little luck unplugging it and plugging it back in, after several attempts that is. Even still, that luck was rather fleeting. The heating pad wouldn’t stay on past fifteen minutes, and would generally go cool well before the fifteen minutes were up. There was nothing in the instruction manual that addressed the problem and what I assumed was some sort of message or error code displayed on the display wasn’t even explained in the instruction manual. I knew that I was operating the timer and settings correctly because they were simple to set, but the heating pad wasn’t going ...


      • by those settings, and no matter what temperature or length of time I set on the heating pad, the result was the same.

        It’s a real shame that this heating pad, as well as the second one that I exchanged it for but proved to be equally flawed or poorly made, failed to work properly because there was a lot that I liked about it. It gave me quite a lot of freedom to set just how much heat I wanted it to put out, almost ten heat settings I recall, and it had these handy straps that allowed me to secure the heating pad to almost any part of my body. The power cord provided a generous amount of length, which provided me with a degree of freedom and flexibility with the heating pad. None of this obviously mattered though since these heating pads seem to have some sort of fatal flaw within that prevents them from working properly, and I certainly won’t be

        taking another chance with one of these after two proved to exhibit the exact same problem. If the company, Sunbeam, can fix the heating pads so that they work as they should, I’ll happily purchase one because I feel that this is a pretty decent heating pad by design, but something must have gone wrong during the implementation stage.

        I can’t rate this heating pad any higher than a “2″ because, quite frankly, it just doesn’t last. It’s not dependable, kicking off at random times, the settings are useless since the heating pad doesn’t respond to them, and it’s just plain frustrating having to unplug and plug it back in repeatedly until something clicks. When a part of you is aching, you don’t want to have this kind of headache and aggravation, that’s for sure! Again, on the drawing board, great concept, but off the assembly line, comes an inferior and flawed product that’s not worth any amount of money because it’s very unreliable and doesn’t last.
