This report about the Sunbeam Quilted Polyester Heated Mattress answers these questions

• Can this be used over a memory foam topper?
• Is it safe to use this on an adjustable bed? I have a latex mattress on an adjustable leggett & platt bed. the bed bends like the old craftsmatics.
• Does this have deep pockets, will need something that will fit at least a 15" thick mattress
• Does it heat all the way to your feet?
• How does the pre-heat feature work?
• Can you feel the coils/wires through your sheets?
• Will the king size fit a cali king?
• Does it seem like it will be durable and last a couple of years or more?
• Does the full size have two controllers?
• Does the electric mattress pad have 16 inch or more deep pockets?
• Does this come with safety features? I would rather not catch flames whlie I slept
• Can you feel the heating wires as you sleep on top of it?
• Is the full size fitted or flat?
• How low is the low setting? We purchased a different brand that had a setting from 1-10 and on its lowest setting my wife would wake up too hot.
• Will this work under a feather bed?
• Could anyone explain why the controls start to blink after I plugged the power for a while?
• Would it be ok to put my current mattress pad on top of this one? I'm thinking in terms of not feeling any wires. Thanks.
• Can one side be turned off?
• How many controls are there?
• How hot does it get on highest setting? Anyone know specific degrees?
• How do I turn it off? I have to let it go for 10 hrs to shut off automatically but would like to shut it off manually.
• I started using this item (full) a month ago and it only heats one side. It only has one controller but shouldn't it heat both sides?
• Can a queen size be put on a full bed?
• The plug at the bottom of the bed is right under my feet when I'm lying on my back. Can I put the plug at the top, under my pillow?
• What are the dimensions? Most importantly I need to know the length, thanks.
• I see two controllers in the picture, however the description does not say dual temp control. Is this dual temp control for each side of bed?
• Will this fit college mattress twin xl
• Can I use one control or do I have to use two? I'm by myself at the moment and it's stupid to have to set both controllers.
• What is the length of the cord from the wall plug-in to the heat control?
• How thick is the pad portion of this? Is it like a pillowtop pad or thinner?
• Is the skirt long enough to fit a 18in mattress on a xl twin
• There there dual temperature zones? or just dual controls with one temperature over the entire surface area? (for King)
• Does this have dual control left and right side
• The sunbeam description says it has a preheat setting but one of the reviews says it doesnt. Can anyone confirm? How long does it take to warm up?
• What is the power rating on this mattress pad?



QUESTION: CAN THIS BE USED OVER A MEMORY FOAM TOPPER?
I do not see why not but that would be a question for the memory foam topper company.
I don't see why not provided your bottom sheets are deep enough to cover them both. I have my on a tempurpedic memory foam mattress.
I put the heated mattress cover over a memory foam mattress and have not had any problems.
Yes.
#Sunbeam_Quilted

QUESTION: IS IT SAFE TO USE THIS ON AN ADJUSTABLE BED? I HAVE A LATEX MATTRESS ON AN ADJUSTABLE LEGGETT & PLATT BED. THE BED BENDS LIKE THE OLD CRAFTSMATICS.
I have an adjustable bed, and use this mattress pad.. I have no idea about the latex mattress. Mine is a normal mattress. I have heard that you can not use them on memory foam, and if that is what you have I would suggest you wear socks to bed..
Yes but the product has a major design flaw in the cord arrangement. The Mfg has made the control wire and the cord leading to the mattress unneccessarily long; then made the courd leading to the OUT-LET SHORT????????????? Plus they don't want ypu using an extension cord because that is unsafe; just a bunch of Completely educated beyond their understanding dummies of how long their own mattress is VS the fact that not everybody has an outlet directly behind their beds????????????

QUESTION: DOES THIS HAVE DEEP POCKETS, WILL NEED SOMETHING THAT WILL FIT AT LEAST A 15" THICK MATTRESS
Yes, my mattress is 18" and it fits nicely. Hope that's helpful. :)
Actually, I believe it would.
yes it does mine is 13" and i still have room
Yes, the pockets are deep, and the cover is full enough to wrap around the sides of the bed and underneath
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Review

QUESTION: DOES IT HEAT ALL THE WAY TO YOUR FEET?
Pretty much...I'm 6' 4" and it does okay.
Yes it is top to bottom. Doesn't curve down though so if your feet hang over the bed they'll get chilly.
YES!
Yes heats entire mattress. Feet to.
Yes it stops about 4" from the bottom. My husband is six foot tall and he says his feet are toasty
It covers 99% of the mattress including down to your feet. If you toss and turn a lot it will get pulled from the sides a little, similar to mattress pads or fitted sheets.
I have real trouble keeping my legs and feet warm, and while neither of us are over 5'8", I would say absolutely yes...perhaps even with the extended King mattress, though ours is a regular King.
It heats to your feet but also heats your whole body so that helps to warm your feet more. It also keeps your shoulders and neck warm.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: HOW DOES THE PRE-HEAT FEATURE WORK?
It is really quick!......A few minutes...... with our old one we would turn it on an hour before we went to bed.
I just turn mine on 30 mins before bedtime. It stays on 10 hours, unless you turn it off manually.
We have been very pleased with this product. I was very skeptical about laundering it but works just like new.
#Sunbeam_Quilted

QUESTION: CAN YOU FEEL THE COILS/WIRES THROUGH YOUR SHEETS?
No, we don't feel wires through the sheets.
Not really. I mean, if I try with my hands to feel them, I can - but sleeping on them, I don't notice them at all.
To me it just feels nice! There is a bit of a lump at the center foot where the wires connect to the pad, but it's pretty close to the bottom/foot of the bed. I'm pretty tall so I notice it, but my wife doesn't even know it's there.
No, the pad is very comfortable. One of the best purchases I've ever made!
It wasn't for me but it's nicely quilted and I wouldn't think you could feel it. I had one before and didn't feel the coils. In fact I'm going to buy another one like this for myself for winter.
No, it feels great
Yes, you can feel the coils. We put a quilted mattress pad over it, at that point you can't feel them.
#Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: WILL THE KING SIZE FIT A CALI KING?
The one I got fits the regular king. I'm not sure but it might stretch the extra length to fit the Cali king, but it would be a stretch. It fits our regular king well and kind of on the loose side. Don't know if that was much help.
I don't think so, maybe you need to ask the supplier, mine is a queen and totally love it
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Review

QUESTION: DOES IT SEEM LIKE IT WILL BE DURABLE AND LAST A COUPLE OF YEARS OR MORE?
I bought one couple years ago and it last for about 3 years. And I thought it was because I kept it on in summer. So I am hoping this one will last longer than that if I do take it off from mattress in summer.
No. Returned it to the store. Would not work at all after 2 weeks
It is not very good quality. I am returning the one i bought.
I think so...mine is working fine and this is the best one I have tried. I tried a Biddeford and it was terrible...took it back and that one was just a bad. Got my Sunbeam and have been warm and toasty since.
Yes I think that it will last a long time. It seems to be pretty good quality as far as I can tell.
I just bought it as a gift for my mom for Christmas and she is very pleased with it. She feels it will lays a while.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: DOES THE FULL SIZE HAVE TWO CONTROLLERS?
Yes it does. Very nice set, comfortable, nice fitting, stays in place. Love it!!
I have the Queens size and that has two controllers, sorry I'm not sure about the full size one.
On October 19th 2015 I received a full size with one controller. I'm returning the item.
Yes the full size has two controllers
#Sunbeam_Quilted

QUESTION: DOES THE ELECTRIC MATTRESS PAD HAVE 16 INCH OR MORE DEEP POCKETS?
Yes, the fold under is more than 16 inches, 17 inches on side and 20+ inches at corner pockets. I hope this helps.
It is a fitted pad and it fits a thick mattress. at least 12 inches
I'm not sure what you mean about deep pockets, it is designed to fit over your mattress under the fitted sheet. There is plenty of material to go under the mattress . If you are saying that your mattress is sixteen inches deep I think it will still go on and stay put because it only goes on the top mattress not both top and box springs. In any case I bought this for my 86 year old mother and since she started using it she has not been cold at night or got up in the morning with a back ache. I hope this helps.
If you mean will it fit a 16 inch deep mattress, then yes it will.
#Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: DOES THIS COME WITH SAFETY FEATURES? I WOULD RATHER NOT CATCH FLAMES WHLIE I SLEPT
I am not sure, I will have to check with my son and get back to you. It was purchased as a gift for him.
I believe it has an auto shutoff, but I am not sure. Best to contact the company. I do LOVE it though. We set it before we go to bed and hop into a nice toasty bed.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Review

QUESTION: CAN YOU FEEL THE HEATING WIRES AS YOU SLEEP ON TOP OF IT?
Not with the sheet over it.
I don't, my husband does- he puts a thin blanket between the heating pad and his sheet- he says that fixes it
No it's not noticeable.
No the wires arenkt bad, but occaissionally I feel the plug at the bottom of the bed with my feet. It really doesnkt bother me
My husband and I cannot, but we feel the gentle heat for sure!
No, it's padded. I love it. This is my 3rd one. I highly recommend it!
No. I have a thin sheet over the bed warmer. I do not feel a thing. I one unlike others have some padding on top of wires.
Not at all. However, I don't think the heating element goes down t the bottom far enough but you are not supposed to leave it one...it is just to warm up the bed until your body heat takes over.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: IS THE FULL SIZE FITTED OR FLAT?
We got the queen size and it was fitted. Based on the design I would assume they are all fitted but I can't answer for sure
Fitted
It is fitted.
It is full size and tucks in on the corners.
Fitted I have king size fits great.
fitted
I have the queen and is fitted. Seems a tad big.
#Sunbeam_Quilted

QUESTION: HOW LOW IS THE LOW SETTING? WE PURCHASED A DIFFERENT BRAND THAT HAD A SETTING FROM 1-10 AND ON ITS LOWEST SETTING MY WIFE WOULD WAKE UP TOO HOT.
The settings on my Sunbeam mattress pads range from 1-10 also but I always turn the heat down in the house when I go to bed and use a lighter top blanket. The need for fewer top covers is what I like most about having the heated pad and the highest setting I have ever used is 4. Around here during the colder months the setting is usually 2 or 3. That is the most comfortable.
The lowest setting is really not very hot at all on this mattress pad! I never use that setting. I usually keep it at 3 and I am comfortable. I hope this answers your question.
My settings are 1-10, however I never leave it on while sleeping. I put it on to warm the bed, then turn it off.
#Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: WILL THIS WORK UNDER A FEATHER BED?
Yes it should.
No it's not puffy at all but is very warm. I would go with a topper if you are trying to add softness.
If you mean a feather comforter then yes, it goes on your mattress under the fitted sheet.
It's a regular mattress pad for a mattress. Don't know about a feather bed.
Yes.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Review

QUESTION: COULD ANYONE EXPLAIN WHY THE CONTROLS START TO BLINK AFTER I PLUGGED THE POWER FOR A WHILE?
Same happened to me. I started over and everything worked. I decided I must have made an error that I didn't see and it was worked out on second attempt. So grateful to have it as Southern Colorado has already had a spell of bitter cold. Good luck and pleasure with yours,Yue Y.
I've encountered this. Unplug blanket; make sure controls are corrected pressed in and plug in again.
I have not encountered this at all. I would say start over. We just plugged the power cord in and then depressed the controls and they lighted steady. This product is absoutely wonderful. Much better than any electric blanket we ever had. Turned way too cold too fast here in Colorado and this is a fantastic product.
NO idea
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: WOULD IT BE OK TO PUT MY CURRENT MATTRESS PAD ON TOP OF THIS ONE? I'M THINKING IN TERMS OF NOT FEELING ANY WIRES. THANKS.
I actually have the heated mattress pad on top of another mattress pad, covering my gel memory foam topper. I can't feel the wires in the heated pad at all. Very pleased with this product.
That should be fine.
#Sunbeam_Quilted

QUESTION: CAN ONE SIDE BE TURNED OFF?
Yes - each side has its own separate controller and they work independently.
Sorry, I bought a twin size so it doesn't apply. I would think if it was a "dual control" it would say in the details, so I suspect it is not.
Only if the mtress in a dould
Only if the bed is a double or cali.king!
Onlyvif you have a double or california .king size? I believe u can find bed heated pads that are zoned like your asking about.. keep checking detailes from manufacturing companies of different brands. Good luck..Susan B. Louisiana
yes it works great. don't be tempted to leave it on the bed all year tho'. besides the extra wear and tear on the wiring, extra perspiration during warmer nights will shorten its life.
#Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: HOW MANY CONTROLS ARE THERE?
Two
Two One for each individual's side of bed.....
For my queen size, there are two controls. For the double, there is one.
Two. One for each side.
one
There are two controllers.
Don't know if size dictates. The twin elong we ordered has one. And no zones as expected from reviews
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Review

QUESTION: HOW HOT DOES IT GET ON HIGHEST SETTING? ANYONE KNOW SPECIFIC DEGREES?
Have not had it on high yet, but at 6/7 it gets quite warm. Best I can do for you, spring is here and its comin' off the bed.
I don't know exact degrees but it gets pretty hot, if it's on highest setting it feels as if I'm getting into a 95 degree jacuzzi. Pretty steamy! Hope that helps, I've never put a thermometer to it.
It gets toasty warm. More than you can sleep comfortably with. A setting of about 2 out of 10 may be comfortable for the night, maybe a little warm for some for all night. I do not know the temperature for each setting but this is a nice unit for the winters. Set it to a four and get the bed warm then turn it down to 2 and crawl in. Saaweet. We love it.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: HOW DO I TURN IT OFF? I HAVE TO LET IT GO FOR 10 HRS TO SHUT OFF AUTOMATICALLY BUT WOULD LIKE TO SHUT IT OFF MANUALLY.
No, you can turn it off & on any time you like on the controls next to the bed.
I don't know if yours is different than mine, but mine I can shut off manually. If it has a timer feature, I am not aware of it.
#Sunbeam_Quilted

QUESTION: I STARTED USING THIS ITEM (FULL) A MONTH AGO AND IT ONLY HEATS ONE SIDE. IT ONLY HAS ONE CONTROLLER BUT SHOULDN'T IT HEAT BOTH SIDES?
I have the full size as well and it heats both sides evenly.
I don't know which one you have. I have a king size that has 2 controllers and my daughter has a twin that has one controller. Both work well.
Yes it should. Request a replacement.
Look at the side that doesn't heat too see if the heating elements are there. They are thin wires in an "S" shaped pattern in the fabric that you can feel. If they are there then they probably are not connected. And if they are missing you obviously won't get heat. You probably have a defective item: send it back and get another one with two controls.
#Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: CAN A QUEEN SIZE BE PUT ON A FULL BED?
It definitely wouldn't fit very well! A queen is much larger than a full and the queen heated pad has dual controllers while the full has only one. I wouldn't even consider doing that, especially when the correct size is available at such a reasonable price.
it could but not tight fit
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Review

QUESTION: THE PLUG AT THE BOTTOM OF THE BED IS RIGHT UNDER MY FEET WHEN I'M LYING ON MY BACK. CAN I PUT THE PLUG AT THE TOP, UNDER MY PILLOW?
I have wondered the same thing. I have long legs and my feet hit the thing too.
When you change the location of the plug, you also change the location of the controls. The control location changes. So, with the plug at the bottom of the bed the control by your right side would be correct to adjust the temp. That will change when you move the plug connection to the top of the bed. For safety reasons, I recommend that the plug stays at the BOTTOM of the bed. Hope this helps.
Yes you can. I am very impressed with the quality of this pad. I'm sure you will enjoy it
That's how I have mine, works fine.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: WHAT ARE THE DIMENSIONS? MOST IMPORTANTLY I NEED TO KNOW THE LENGTH, THANKS.
I returned this after sleeping on it one night-I would not recommend-sorry
We have three of these. 1 twin, 1 standard and 1 king. Our beds are all standard size and they fit fine.
60inx80 fits mattress up too15in deepi got queen size
#Sunbeam_Quilted

QUESTION: I SEE TWO CONTROLLERS IN THE PICTURE, HOWEVER THE DESCRIPTION DOES NOT SAY DUAL TEMP CONTROL. IS THIS DUAL TEMP CONTROL FOR EACH SIDE OF BED?
Oh yes! There are two controllers.
Yes. We have different settings and I turn them on an hour before we retire. My husband says, "I can die now - life is good."
Yes. There is a control for each side of the mattress pad.
Yes there are two separate controls. We absolutely love it, he's always cold and I'm always hot, this product solved our dilemma. We highly recommend this product. Hope this is helpful.
Yes dual control. Very easy to read
Yes. It is does have dual temp control which turn off after 10 hours.
It 's for a twin size bed and has only one controller.
#Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: WILL THIS FIT COLLEGE MATTRESS TWIN XL
yes
Yes, it does. I actually bought two of those because my boyfriend and I have teo twin xl matresses and it does fit perfect!
Yes. I ordered for my son stationed in the air force in Alaska for his room. I think the military uses the same size mattresses.
yes
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Review

QUESTION: CAN I USE ONE CONTROL OR DO I HAVE TO USE TWO? I'M BY MYSELF AT THE MOMENT AND IT'S STUPID TO HAVE TO SET BOTH CONTROLLERS.
Both will be plugged in but you can turn just one side on.
You can use one but if you want the whole bed warm up use both
No just one is fine, if you only want half of the bed warmed.
Each controller works on one side of the bed if you want to only warm up half your bed you can
The full sized mattress pad I purchased only had one control.
You are able to,use one control at a time. My husband always has his side on and I warm my side up beforehand and then shut it off.
One controller operates one side. NOT both. I believe they do make heated pads with just one control for all.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: WHAT IS THE LENGTH OF THE CORD FROM THE WALL PLUG-IN TO THE HEAT CONTROL?
First, there are two heat controls. The cord length was a significant design flaw. The cord is very short on the side away from the plug and barely long enough on the other side.
It is about 12 feet long.
six foot
#Sunbeam_Quilted

QUESTION: HOW THICK IS THE PAD PORTION OF THIS? IS IT LIKE A PILLOWTOP PAD OR THINNER?
The pad portion is fairly thin (1/2 inch or so). It is nowhere as thick as a mattress topper. We are pleased with the way it keeps the bed warmed but it will not do the job of a topper.
Thinner than a pillow top but so comfortable. We wouldn't be without it!!
not familiar with "pillow pad" - not very thick - heating elements ("smooth bumps") through out - NBD
It is not pillow top thick it is thinner and it works really great I love mine! You don't feel the wiring elements inside it is comfortable well worth the money to warm up the bed before going to bed at night.
I put another mattress pad over it- cozy warm
#Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: IS THE SKIRT LONG ENOUGH TO FIT A 18IN MATTRESS ON A XL TWIN
We have the queen size. Our mattress is 11 inches and there is 7 or so inches tucked underneath. So ours is close to 18. Again. It's a queen.
yes
It is a tight fit. Will work if you have strong hands and are willing to PULL.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Review

QUESTION: THERE THERE DUAL TEMPERATURE ZONES? OR JUST DUAL CONTROLS WITH ONE TEMPERATURE OVER THE ENTIRE SURFACE AREA? (FOR KING)
There are two controls. You can each turn on, off or adjust temperature for your side of the bed. We've been very pleased. Hope this is helpful. :)
Don't know about "There, there " dual zones but if you are saying "Are there " dual zones then, yes, each side of the bed is controlled by the controller on that side.
I have the queen 2 controllers different temps for each side of bed I love it on high when warming up bed at night then I shut off husband leaves His side on warm all night awesome heating pad for bed. I highly recommend.
Dual controls with 2 controllers.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: DOES THIS HAVE DUAL CONTROL LEFT AND RIGHT SIDE
The full size does not. I do not know about the larger sizes. Wonderful product
There is a separate control unit for each side of the bed on the full, queen and king sizes.
The king size mattress pad has a control for each side (two).
#Sunbeam_Quilted

QUESTION: THE SUNBEAM DESCRIPTION SAYS IT HAS A PREHEAT SETTING BUT ONE OF THE REVIEWS SAYS IT DOESNT. CAN ANYONE CONFIRM? HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO WARM UP?
mine doesn't have a preheat setting, I find it warms up pretty fast. haven't timed it..I turn it on when I start to get ready for bed and by the time I'm ready to get in its warm.
I don't remember a preheat setting... but I didn't really pay attention to that feature. I set it to 4, then go about getting ready for bed (about 10 mins) and it is warm enough for me that I turn it off before getting into the bed. Hope that helps!
It does not preheat when you body weight touches it ,you start heating immediately bed is never cold when you get in. Very nice item.
#Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: WHAT IS THE POWER RATING ON THIS MATTRESS PAD?
It goes up to 10 which is ( ....high) I love it my bottom stay warm when it cold ....nothing worse then getting a cold bed
L (low-1) to H (high-10)
It has multiple settings from 1 to 10. The highest I have ran mine is at 4.
