QUESTION: WHAT IS THE POCKET DEPTH OF THE HEATED MATTRESS PAD?
We have the deepest pillow top king mattress and it fits fine. I understand your concern I was afraid of that also. No worry
I don't know what pocket depth means but my mattress is very deep and it works fine on mine. Hope that is what you want to know...I'm very happy with mine.
I have a deep mattress with pillow top AND a memory foam pad. Fits with no problems.
My mattress is 12" thick and it is sort of loose fitting. It could probably go on a mattress a little thicker, not sure of how thick.
It fits over a thick mattress easily.
It is very deep. We love this.
I returned it to the store for a refund. It was terrible
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: ANYONE KNOW THE WARRANTY PERIOD? PDF ON SITE JUST HAS A GENERIC WARRANTY STATEMENT. IMPORTANT AS THESE TEND TO HAVE PROBLEMS.
It says 5 year limited warranty. It does not cover mis-use oif acts of god, etc.
It has a 5 year warranty on it unless it has had some misuse to it.
#Sunbeam_Quilted

QUESTION: DOES THIS FIT & WORK WELL WITH THE TWIN SIZE PLACED ON ONE SIDE OF A QUEEN SIZE BED?
Don't know.My wife uses it as a shawl while working on her computer.
I believe it would be nicely sized not to go onto the other side of the bed.
It should work just fine
I wouldn't even attempt that. It's a mattress pad fitted, much like a fitted sheet, for a twin-sized mattress, and even so, has a tendency to bunch up somewhat without elastic straps underneath the mattress holding the fitted mattress pad in place. I believe the queen-sized pad has separate controllers for each side so you each can set your temperature to suit your individual needs. Hope that helps.
#Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: CAN I PUT A REGULAR COTTON MATTRESS PAD OVER THIS HEATED PAD FOR COMFORT? I CAN FEEL THE WIRES.
I have the heated pad under a regular mattress pad the wires are at bottom of the bed so you can not feel them
I sent this pad back after one night-for me it was horrible!!!
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Review

QUESTION: ARE THERE MORE HEATING COILS AT THE BOTTOM THAN AT THE TOP?
I would have to say the coils are evenly distributed. I do not notice any more than the other.
I don't see any difference between then. I'D SAY THEY ARE EVENLY DISTRIBUTED.
No not in my opinion. They are pretty spaced out evenly. I don't even feel them as I'm sleeping.
No, on the queen size coils are 7" apart and run evenly the length of the pad. The description indicates the cord attachment is at the bottom but, since the coils are even, I don't think it matters which end you put at the head of the bed. My husband who normally has cold feet is very pleased with this one.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: DO YOU FEEL THE WIRES
Not really. I know they are there, but they don't bother me. If you are super sensitive you can put another mattress pad on top of this one. I love these things.
Not really.At least, they don't bother us at all.
No, not at all.
#Sunbeam_Quilted

QUESTION: WE RECENTLY ORDERED THE KING FOR OUR KING MATTRESS. WE ALSO HAVE A SLEIGH BED. THE CORDS ARE TOO SHORT AND CONTROLLERS KEEP FALLING OF NIGHTSTAND.
Sleigh beds are difficult for any of the mattress warmers on the market. What I did was put a small cloth over the headboard to avoid scratches and hung the controls over the cloth. I always knew where to find the control.
Bulk elastic can be sewn out of sight anywhere you have cloth. Velcro works where you have hard surfaces. (Does not take much) This is a difficult bed configuration, but it can be done.
What is your question you state cords too short falling off nightstand
Not a question
#Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: HAS ANYONE EVER TRIED TO WASH THIS? IF SO HOW DID YOU DO IT?
Washing instructions are included with packaging for this item. It is completely washable.
Yes, we have washed it and previous Sunbeam heated mattress pads just normal washing and drying.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Review

QUESTION: CAN YOU TURN OFF ONE SIDE WHILE THE OTHER SIDE IS ON?
Absolutely. My husband rarely has his side on but mine is on low all night and it's more than warm enough even for me who is always cold.
Yes!
Yes!! Absolutely! Makes it so nice.
Yes, my hubby will have his on high and mine is on low or off. Plus there is an auto off after 10 hours. I love it.
YES each control only controls one side of the bed.
Yes; both side work Independently.
Yes you sure can. It has dual controls. I bought this for my parents who are 82 and 85. They LOVE It!
yes you can, my son loves it said it heats up fast also better hen his last one.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: WHERE ARE THE CONNECTORS AT
at the top of the mattress pad
The cords plug in to a receptacle about in the center on the bottom of the bed. The cord goes under your bed and then connects to the wall.
at the foot of the bed in the middle
#Sunbeam_Quilted

QUESTION: CAN I SAFELY PLACE THIS UNDER ANOTHER MATTRESS PAD?
While I hesitate to answer a question about "safety"- and urge you to contact Sunbeam concerning such, I will say this: the way the mattress pad is constructed, you could place it under another mattress pad. The whole point seems to be missing though, in that you want the pad under your sheet to warm you, not your mattress. The more layers you have between you and the heat, the less effective the heated mattress pad will be.
I sent mine back the next day. Didn't like the wires, the dry heat, the fire hazards, or the possible EMF cancer related warnings. Went to flannel sheets.
#Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: DOES IT ONLY HEAT THE END OF THE BED?
What end?????????????????? It heats the whole bed....
No, it heats the whole area
Nope, mine heats top to bottom
From the reviews I thought it would. But not with the ex long twin
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Review

QUESTION: WHERE ARE THE CORDS? AT THE TOP OF THE MATTRESS PAD OR IS IT AT THE BOTTOM AND YOU NEED TO RUN THE CORDS UNDER THE BED?
You can have it at either top or bottom. We have ours by our head and unless you put your hand directly on it, you dont know its there. The cord is fairly long since there are 2 controllers so yesthey are under the bed. Hope this helps!
Underneath the bed.
Bottom, top of mattress. Yes, cords need to run under the bed.
Plugs in the end of the pad in the middle. The cord runs under bed to a controller which runs to another controller.
They all come from one spot, so I imagine you can flip it either way
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: CAN THIS BE USED WITH A MEMORY FOAM OR ALL LATEX FOAM MATTRESS?
I am sure what the response to heat would be. I would check with the mattress manufacturer.
I am using it with my Temperpedic mattress with no issues.
#Sunbeam_Quilted

QUESTION: WHEN THEY SAY DIFFERENT ZONE DO THEY MEAN LEFT AND RIGHT SIDEWAYS? OR TOP AND BOTTOM? WILL IT ONLY HEAT THE BOTTOM PART OF THE BED?
Left and right heat zones
They mean left and right; meaning, there is a control for EACH SIDE of the bed so 2p sharing a bed could have a different level of heat on their side.
I don't quite get your question. The Heated Mattress Pad supposedly is used to heat up the TOP of your mattress, not the bottom, because you sleep on top of your mattress.
Zones mean the left & right side of the bed
Left or right.
Independent left and right side temperature control. Pad heats up top to bottom
#Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: IS IT DOUBLE SIDED. CONTROLLED FROM EACH SIDE?
Yes ma'am it is. There are two controls, one for each side.
Yes. If you mean dual control.
The Queen and King size have dual controls, the smaller sizes do not.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Review

QUESTION: CAN THESE BE USED ON A SLEEP NUMBER MATTRESS?
Yes, I do not have this exact model, mine is years old, but I have had it on my Sleep Number bed for years. I use my side every night in the winter and my husband never uses his side. I leave it on my bed year round.
I do not know. I do not have a sleep number. I don't see why not.
According to Sleep Number you can if it isn't an adjustable (flexible like a hospital bed) mattress. Also, it may change your number.
Sorry , I would not want to say yes to that. I see no reason it would not work, but I would contact sleep number to make sure its OK. It could void any warranty.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: IS THIS MATTRESS PAD WATERPROOF?
I don't think so, Sunbeam advertises a separate waterproof version. (washable does not mean it will prevent water from going through it, - waterproof-)
Ummm, it is washable!
#Sunbeam_Quilted

QUESTION: IF IT WERE TO GET WET WOULD THERE BE A SHOCK? (OCCASIONAL BETWETTING SON)
I wouldn't think so but you could always use a low setting and place a plastic cover over the bed to protect it.. The mattress cover itself is pretty thick. hope that's helpful:-)
no i have wasted water and tea no problem
I would not think it would hurt it as it is "washable", I have only spot washed it. As long as the wetting is not going into the plug in area all should be well.
I don't think so. There aren't any exposed so I doubt it. I washed mine and accidentally plugged it in while it was still somewhat damp but had no problems.
#Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: WHAT KIND OF PLUG DOES THIS USE? 2? (POLARIZED) OR 3 (GROUNDED)?
2 polarized
Two plug, no ground.
3 grounded
Ours is the 2 prong type. I have to add that we LOVE this item!
2, polarized
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Review

QUESTION: HI, ANYONE USED BOTH ELECTRIC BLANKET VS MATTRESS CARE TO SAY WHICH YOU LIKED MORE & WHY? THX
We have the electric mattress pad and love it. Dual control. I like it because it makes the bed toasty when I get in. I do not leave it on all night. I would roast.
I used heated blankets for 20 years before trying a mattress pad. Now I am a mattress pad convert. So much nicer feel and I don't have to wear a heavy wired blanket on top of me that is hard to move around under. I also put an additional thin mattress pad on top of the heated pad for additional cushion plus I can't feel any wires underneath of me whatsoever that way.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: I HAVE A FOAM MATTRESS PAD AND I WAS WONDERING IF IT WAS SAFE TO USE IT WITH THE THIN-ISH PAD STILL ON?
I would definitely check with Sunbeam I have a normal mattress pad but not foam
Yes,absolutely
#Sunbeam_Quilted

QUESTION: WILL THIS WARM MY FEET ALSO?
Of course it will.warm your feet depending on your sleep position.
Yes. The mattress pad extends the full length of the mattress.
Yes it does.
Yes. Turn the mattress pad on about 20 mins. to 30 mins. before you wish to settle in, you can adjust the heat as suits you - works like a charm!
Yes, it warms from head to toe.
oh my goodness yes!!! I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE this. If it ever goes out I will definitely be buying another one. I use mine year round. You don't have to crank it up either ......very good product!!! Washed several times too and looks like brand new still!!!!!
#Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: CAN YOU US THIS ON A MEMORY FOAM MATTRESS
Yes it will work fine on memory foam
Yes, I think it would be fine. I have mine on a regular mattress with a memory foam pad and it works great.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Review

QUESTION: DO YOU SLEEP DIRECTLY ON THIS MATTRESS PAD, OR CAN YOU PUT YOUR FITTED MATTRESS SHEET OVER IT?
I put the heated pad directly on the mattress, then a down mattress pad over that, then a fitted sheet over that. You can really do whatever is most comfortable for you.
It goes under the fitted sheet.
I have 2 cloth fitted mattress protectors AND the regular fitted sheet on top of it. The purpose of mattress protectors reduces washing the heated pad to almost never.
You put your fitted sheet on top over the pad. this is a mattress cover. You do not sleep directly on it.
Fitted sheet over pad.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: HEATED PAD GETS TOO HOT EVEN ON LOW SETTING. HOW TO ADJUST?
My works perfectly. You may need to send yours back.
My heat pad did that for the first 10hr cycle but now works as you would expect.
#Sunbeam_Quilted

QUESTION: IS THERE ANY PROBLEM USING SOMETHING LIKE THIS ON AN AEROBED MATTRESS OR OTHER INFLATABLE TYPE MATTRESS?
I've never had any experience with it, but it does not get very warm and I would not order this again
No
No
I used to have a waterbed, since I bought this mattress heater, I do not want the water bed anymore, the best purchase I have ever done use it every night without fail. Do not know what is an aerobed mattress? Sorry.jocelyne
YES!!!! It's amazing because the air mattress conducts the cold temperatures from the floor and the mattress pad offsets that, making the bed cozy warm.
#Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: IS THERE A TIMER YOU CAN SET SO THAT THE BE PREHEATS ITSELF AT THE SAME TIME EVERY NIGHT?
No, it does not have a timer to set the time.
But it does have a button for a 30-minute preheat.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Review

QUESTION: DOES IT HAVE A FITTED SKIRT? CAN I USE A TWIN SIZE PAD ON MY QUEEN SIZE BED? I DON'T NEED A BIG HEATING AREA..
It is a fitted skirt. On the queen sized pad there is a right and left side controller so you can best one side but not the other.
Yes it is skirted - fits just like a sheet - so no you could not correctly use on a queen bed.
No, the double size does not have a fitted skirt. It fits snggly over an oversize mattress and has really cut down on my heating bills.
Mine is a double and does not have a skirt, however, there are deep sides that tuck under the mattress easily.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: WHAT DEPTH OF MATTRESS WILL IT FIT
Packaging states fits mattresses up to 18 inches deep.
I am not sure. It was a gift for our daughter.
I have a pillow top and it fits fine
#Sunbeam_Quilted

QUESTION: DOES THIS HAVE PREHEAT SETTING
I believe it might. I have never utilized that feature if it does. I have always turned it on whenever I get into bed and within a few minutes it has heated fully. There is a 10 hour automatic shut off feature as well.
No, just Low through High with numbers in between. Which basically is 1-10. Does have an on/off button.
You turn it on before you go to bed then its heated
The upper right-hand button says Preheat. I have never tried it but the instruction manual says it works.
This particular pad does in fact have a preheat setting capability.
#Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: DOES IT COME WITH TWO CONTROLLERS?
yes
Yes has two Contolers and my wife and I love the dual temp control I like cool she likes hot very nice product
yes it does
No
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Review

QUESTION: SOME REVIEWS OF OTHER HEATED PADS NOTE THAT THE CONTROLERS MAKE A HUMMING/BUZZING SOUND. DOES THIS ONE CREATE NOISE?
No noise at all. I bought 4 of them and gave 3 away Everybody loves them.
No noise at all
The heater doesn't buzz and I don't remember any noise during the night, We were very happy with product. It wasn't necessary to have heat turned very high.
No noise what so ever.
Not that we have noticed. We have it in all of our bedrooms, including the guest room, and nobody has ever mentioned a humming or buzzing sound.
No buzzing on ours or noise from ours.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: DOES THIS FIT A CALIFORNIA. KING
This fits a queen size bed only look for a king size on their web site
We have a queen size. I don't believe it would fit a California king.
#Sunbeam_Quilted

QUESTION: WHAT KIND OF PLUG DOES IT HAVE?
2 prong.
Dual controls but only one two prong electric plug
It is a two (2) prong so you will not have trouble with plugging into regular outlet.
Standard 120 VAC Three Pronged Plug
Hi, the plug that mine has is like 2 thin prongs, for example - for use in France i plug it into a multiplug adaptor to plug into the round pin plugs in order to use it. i hope this helps. please note that it's not the normal round or square pinned plug. you will need an adapter for it.
Two prong plug
Just a normal wall outlet plug 120V
#Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: DOES THE TWIN X-LARGE HAVE THREE HEATING ZONES: HEAD, TORSO AND FEET? THANKS
Yes
Yes
Yes
I am slowly didn't know it was helpful to look at the prior answers!
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Review

QUESTION: WILL THIS STRETCH FOR USE ON A CAL KING SPLIT? I SEE IT WORKS ON A KING SPLIT, BUT THE CAL KING IS 84" IN LENGTH.
We have a regular king so I'm not sure if it would fit your Cal split king; you might try calling Sunbeam for the specifics. Sorry I'm no more help to you. Barbara
it probably would but not advisable. It doesn't quite heat my king from head to toe. I would say it heats approximately 3/4 only, so using it on a bigger bed would only decrease your heating area. I was thinking of going to cal king for my standard king for better coverage. Hope that helps.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: WILL THIS MATRESS PAD FIT ON KING SIZE MATRESS WHICH IS ABOUT 10 INCHES IN WIDTH?
Yes, it will fit a 10" high mattress
No, this is only for a full-size mattress
#Sunbeam_Quilted

QUESTION: CAN YOU TELL ME HOW TO HEAT THE BLANKET?? JUST PUSH THE BOTTOM AND THEN SWITCH TO 9 OR OTHER NUMBERS??
Yes you push the button to turn it on then you set it on the # you want. The higher the # the hotter it gets. It does turn off after 10hrs as a safety precaution.
That's it!!!
Yes just push the button and turn the knob to the different settings number 2 or 3 works great for me turn it on at least 30 minutes before going to bed to allow the pad to get warm.
yes just push the button at the bottom the turn the dail too setting you what.
#Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: WILL IT WORK WITH MEMORY FOAM MATTRESSES?
Yes
I don't know why there would be an issue, but I don't have a memory foam. You could call and ask.
Yes
Yes
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Review

QUESTION: WHAT TYPE OF SWITCH DOES THIS HAVE? CAN I LEAVE IT IN THE "ON" POSITION SO THAT IT WILL WORK WITH A TIMER?
It just has an on/off button and a dial to set the temperature. It has a 10 hour shut off feature built in. I don't believe it would work with a timer.
It has an automatic shut off after 10 hours. To connect to a timer of your choice, I am not aware of a feature like that.
No, not on the type that I have anyway. It has an automatic 10 hour shut off and you must physically press the on button to activate. Hope this helps.
#Sunbeam_Quilted_Polyester_Heated_Mattress

QUESTION: IS THE HEATING TIME ADJUSTABLE? I ONLY WANT IT TO STAY WARM FOR 2 HOURS, NOT ENTIRE NIGHT. CAN IT TURN OFF AUTOMATICALLY AFTER 2 HOURS?
No
No
Yes
No
