QUESTION: I HAVE A QUEEN PILL TOP MATTRESS 60X80X18' WOULD THE SUNBEAM THREAPETIC HEATED MATTRESS PAD WORK
I believe you will be okay if you order this pad. Its pretty generous in size to accommodate the various heights of a mattress. The width and length is pretty accurate and fits my queen mattress nicely. Additionally...I turned it where the connectors are under my pillows and my feet doesn't hit them. That seemed to have been an issue with some of the other customers. Hope you enjoy this product as well as I do. I'm in Michigan and this baby has literally been a life-saver. It definitely has made the difference in my getting a good nite's rest...woooweeeee!!!!
It fits mine just fine!
Should mine is on top of a costco gel foam topper
I really don't know. I returned mine for a refund because it never heated up at all. I believe it was because of the wireless control - never could get it to stay on - it would sent an alert that something was wrong - I did the troubleshooting and still nothing worked. Sorry I can't help. Rita Watson
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic_Heated_Mattress_Pad

QUESTION: DO THE HEATED WIRES GO ALL THE WAY TO THE FOOT OF THE PAD
Yes. And that is actually the only place on the mattress pad I can feel them.
yes
Heated wires are very long, go from foot of pad to the connection which I suggest you keep under the head of your bed. The remote needs to be close to that part. Also best if an outlet is close to the head of bed
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic

QUESTION: IS THERE ONE CONTROLLER TO TWO?
One controller that controls both sides individually.
Unfortunately, just one, but it controls each side separately. We make it work.
There is one controller unit but it controls each side separately. Little learning curve. If laying in bed looking at controller, the right side of the bed is controlled with the left side of the control.
The King size only has one controller...
I purchaced the twin xl, it came with one controller
I have a king size and there is only one wireless remote control, but it has dual functions - the left and right side of the single remote control are color coded. Blue for one side and Green for the other side so you know which side you want to adjust. The heated mattress pad can be controlled and operated independently from one remote control for each side, as well as adjusting the temperature separately for the head, the torso or, the foot. I love the flexibility in controlling the amount of heat separately for different parts of my body.
#Heated_Mattress_Pad

QUESTION: SHOULD I BUY BED BANDS IN ORDER TO KEEP THE MATTRESS PAD FROM MOVING AROUND?
They aren't needed. The mattress pad stays on the bed very nicely.
No need. It stays put.
I used the pad all last winter and did not experience ANY troublesome movement. It stayed in place just fine.
I have not found bed bands to be necessary. Love the product
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic_Review

QUESTION: IS THE KING SIZE A CALIFORNIA KING? JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE BEFORE I BUY IT.
I bought two extra long twins for our bed. We have a split cal king adjustable bed and the ones I bought are perfect and work out great. I've gotten to where I don't trust the labels of cal king or king either so I've measured the bed so I can go by how big bedding product is by the inches in the description. I've gotten some things in the past that said Cal King but didn't fit, ended up being King measurements. We're happy with these tho, have preheat function and warm up pretty quick.
We have a Tempur-Pedic King twin split bed.... so we had to get the Twin extra long The sizes are listed
Try these guys to keep sheets from creeping maybe. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_0_18?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=bed%20sheet%20grippers&sprefix=bed+sheet+grippers%2Caps%2C467
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic_Heated_Mattress_Pad

QUESTION: HOW DEEP IS THE POCKET? I HAVE 14 INCH THICK MATTRESS.
I have an 18 inch mattress it will definitely fit!
I have a 14 inch thick mattress, too. It fits just fine, surprisingly enough. Now if I could just find more fitted sheets that fit!
My mattress is 12" thick and there is still room at the corners. It should fit.
It will fit
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic

QUESTION: CAN YOU USE THIS WITH AN EGG CRATE?
Yes you can. And I just leave it on year-round. It may take away some of the feeling from the egg crate but no more so then a good, regular mattress pad. I think having the therapeutic heat will only enhance the comfort from the egg crate. It's a great deal and you can always return it, but I don't think you'll want to. You'll be in love the first time you use it! Good luck.
I don't think so. The heat is generally from laying on it.
I checked the Owner's Manual for this question and did not find anything that specifically says you can't. The only prohibitions I see as to the types of beds are: "Do not use the heated mattress pad on a waterbed, sofa, bunk bed,or mechanically adjustable bed". Maybe the egg crate owner's manual has a better answer.
sorry I don't klnow what an egg crate is.... ks well on my regular queen bed....
#Heated_Mattress_Pad

QUESTION: IS THE MATTRESS PAD ACTUALLY COLORED LIKE THIS OR IS IT JUST A VISUAL FOR THE DIFFERENT HEAT ZONES?
No it is white
No, it is simply white. There are no colored zones on the actual pad.
Mine is totally white. I'm certain this is just to show the zones.
It's white, that's a visual to show the heat zones.
It is visual,solid white.
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic_Review

QUESTION: WHAT IS THE WIDTH OF SIDES, CAN I TUCK IT OVER MY THICK TEMPRA PEDIC MATRESS
We have a queen pillow top bed. It's about 18 inches in thickness. The mattress pad has like 24 inches of an elastic fabric that hugs and fits the mattress beautifully with some excess that still tightens under the mattress. It seems like the mattress pad was made just for my bed. I had the same worry when i was considering purchasing this mattress pad. I'm certain you will love this mattress pad when you buy it.
My daughter put this over her memory foam mattress topper and had no issues.
Our mattress is 11.5 inches and we have no problem with the sides as there is more to spare. Hope this helps
yes you can. i have a thick tempra pedic matress and it fits good.
Yes, it fits quite nicely.
It will definitely fit any mattress up to 16" due to the flexible wrap around edging. Enjoy!!
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic_Heated_Mattress_Pad

QUESTION: DOES IT HAVE 2 CONTROLS
No. From the description and reading the Sunbeam page, I thought the full one had two controls. Unfortunately it is not returnable so I'm stuck with an expensive mattress pad.
The queen and king size have 2 side zones (3 zones per side). I have the queen size and there is one control for the pad to control the zones.
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic

QUESTION: NO ONE MENTIONED IF THIS MATTRESS PAD IS THERAPEUTIC FOR PEOPLE WITH ACHES AND PAINS FROM FIBROMYALGIA AND OR OSTEO ARTHRITIS AND THE LIKE?
Well since cold aggravates the pain of arthritis, the heat is therapeutic... But I doubt there is any therapeutic affect other than that provided by heat. That's enough for me, though!
I have fibromyalgia and I get benefit from the lowest heat settings.
I have fibro and lots of arthritis, as well as some circulatory problems. This is definitely helpful and comforting. There were times during the summer I even used it on the lower settings.
I have fibro and lots of arthritis, as well as some circulatory problems. This is definitely helpful and comforting. There were times during the summer I even used it on the lower settings.
It is as effective as any uniform conformal heat source for both afflictions
#Heated_Mattress_Pad

QUESTION: IS THE MATTRESS PAD IS IN WHITE AND THE COLORS ON IT ARE TO SHOW HOW YOU CAN HAVE DIFFERENT TEMPS?
The colors are to show the different zones here. The pad itself is all white.
All white.
I have different unit. I have one zone. By looking at the control in the ad. It is pretty plain that there are separate Zones for each side.
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic_Review

QUESTION: I NEED ONE I CAN TURN OFF THE UPPER BODY ZONE WHEN I SLEEP, TO AVOID TACHYCARDIA. DOES THIS DO THAT?
Yes. There are 3 different zones. Upper, middle and lower. You can program it for any zone. Very easy.
This is a wonderful programmable mattress warmer that has three heat zones. In the coldest part of winter I do turn on the upper body element. I prefer to use only the body and feet portion of this warmer. You will love this item. I have recommended this model to many and those that have made the purchase are quite satisfied.
This mattress pad has great zone control. 3 zones - head, middle and feet - can be adjusted independently, so it's possible to have just the foot area heated.
Yes, it has three zones for each side. Upper, mid, and feet. Using just the feet so far. Has been perfect for my needs. Love it.
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic_Heated_Mattress_Pad

QUESTION: HOW MANY CONTROLS DOES THE SUNBEAM THERAPEUTIC HEATED FULL MATTRESS PAD HAVE
unfortunately, only one. It didn't say for the full mattress pad and I ordered it. Now I cannot return this.
One that goes under the bed and connects to the mattress pad, and then a wireless one (on a Full-sized pad) that controls the heating functions.
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic

QUESTION: CAN YOU FEEL THE WIRES?
Not really Sunbeam best brand for not having that. Have Beautyrest in Guest BR & they can be felt a little. Have had two other brands that were returned, one from Kohls & another from Belk. Our first Sunbeam was from Costco years ago & it was great. The only negative on this is that on lowest setting is almost more heat than you want. Love the cordless remote. Love the 6 zones-3 each side. Again Sunbeam makes the best, has the best padding, just wish the lowest setting would put out less heat. BTW our cat loves it, only have to turn on one section & she is stuck there for the day. Have to pull her off.
No....only at the end of the bed where they plug in at the two terminals in the corners
No, I did not feel the wires. It is very comfortable.
#Heated_Mattress_Pad

QUESTION: I'M LOOKING FOR TWIN XL-WILL THIS 'TWIN' FIT? I SEE A REVIEW FOR IT
A regular twin will Not fit a twin XL., Sorry.
Hello CL, it will not fit twin XL mattress. Twin XL mattress pads measure 39" x 80" and Twin size (the one you are looking at) measures 39" x 75" Best Regards, House of Fine Linens
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic_Review

QUESTION: DOES THIS ONE HAVE THAT IRRITATING PLUG IN MIDDLE OF THE END?
No. Plugs are in the two "bottom" corners so that the two sides can be temperature controlled for each side. I love mine!
No, the plug-ins are on each side for separate control.
Plug is at the end
Plugs are in the two bottom corners
Queen size has two controls and are more to corner
I got the king sized one that has plugs on each side, but i'm short so it doesn't bother me.
The two plugs are located at the foot of the bed in the corners of the matress
The two plugs are located at the foot of the bed in the corners of the matress
The two plugs are located at the foot of the bed in the corners of the matress
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic_Heated_Mattress_Pad

QUESTION: I HAVE A SELECT COMFORT MATTRESS CAN I USE THIS ON IT? REMEMBER IT USES AIR SO YOU CAN GET THE FIRMNESS YOU DESIRE FOR COMFORT.
Yes
Not sure about select comfort. I believe the use of the heated mattress pad voids the warranty for TempurPedic mattress -- just not sure about select comfort.
Yes
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic

QUESTION: I HAVE A FULL MATTRESS BUT I NEED DEEP POCKET SHEETS. SHOULD I GET A FULL OR QUEEN?
You just need to get a full, we have a king bed with extra padding on it and our mattress pad fits great.
I have a queen, the pockets are very deep.
The pockets on both my queen and king size Sunbeam Therapeutic Heated MattressPad have very deep pockets and fit my oversized/ thick king mattress with room to spare. I'd go with your normal sized mattress as the heated pad is made to accommodate deep/thick mattresses.
I think you could get the Full size. This mattress pad is pretty deep. We absolutely LOVE it!!
Get a full size, otherwise a queen would be to large for your full size mattress.
#Heated_Mattress_Pad

QUESTION: GOT THIS AS A GIFT BUT THERE WASN'T A MANUAL. SEARCHED ONLINE FOR ONE BUT HAVEN'T FOUND ONE YET. DOES IT COME WITH A MANUAL? THANK YOU
Yes there should be a manual included.
Yes, the one I purchase had a basic installation manual.
Yes.
Yes it comes with an instruction book
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic_Review

QUESTION: CAN THIS BE USED ON AN I COMFORT GEL TYPE MATTRESS? I BOUGHT ONE BEFORE I BOUGHT THE BED BUT NOT SURE IF I CAN USE IT ON THIS BED WITHOUT DAMAGING IT
I called Sleep Experts 214-237-5294 was and told you can use the heated mattress pad to warm the bed up, but do not leave the heat on all night or you will compromise the gel.
I have an Icomfort adjustable bed and No problem.
I also have an I comfort, no problem with it yet
Don't know. I use mine on top of a memory foam topper. Wish I could be more help. But have to say, we are having terribly cold weather for FL and I am loving this heated mattress pad!
I use mine on a memory foam gel infused mattress with no problem.
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic_Heated_Mattress_Pad

QUESTION: DOES IT HAS A MEMORY OF YOUR LAST ZONE SETTINGS YOU SET? OR IT REMEMBERS YOUR SETTING?
Yes, I love it!
The blanket has a memory for each side, and is the best warming pad we have ever purchased. It also can turn itself off after 8 hours. Great buy.
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic

QUESTION: I HAVE AN 80 X 72 MATTRESS (IN A MOTOR HOME). DOES THIS PAD NEED TO FIT SNUGLY OR WILL IT WORK BEING 2" WIDER ON EACH SIDE?
My experience is that it does not need to fit snugly. It has very deep corners, so should be flexible to your needs.
It should work. The material Thant fits it to the mattress should keep it tight.
Hope you like it, I love mine. It tends to be quite warm, so I warm up the bed, and then turn it off for the night! Also, I keep my feet section a bit warmer then my head, so for me it is perfect. If it is really cold, I can keep the feet section on all night. Enjoy!
I imagine it needs to have a snug fit..2 inches is too much ...
#Heated_Mattress_Pad

QUESTION: HOW MANY HEATING ZONES FOR FULL SIZE?
6 zones. Three on each side.....foot are mid section & back. Each zone can be set at its own temperature.
6, 3 on each side ...it's the best with many temp settings.
6 heating zones for the full size.
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic_Review

QUESTION: OFTEN THE REMOTE RECEIVER (BOX UNDER BED THAT CABLES CONNECT TO) STARTS BEEPING. I HAVE TO UNPLUG FROM THE WALL TO STOP. ANNOYING!! PROBLEM FOR U?
No, it beeps when it turns off automatically after 10 hours, but that's all. Try going to their website to see if there is a troubleshooting guide.
The problem is not the box. It's at the bottom of pad where the wires connect to the pad. Mine did the same thing at first. You have to push extremely hard to get the wire connecter into the connecter at the bottom of the mattress pad. Once it is secured the beeping will stop. It does beep when turned on and off. But that's it. An F.Y.I. We simply love this pad.
No
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic_Heated_Mattress_Pad

QUESTION: IS THE FABRIC ON THE TOP OF THE PAD 100% COTTON?
Yes, the top is 100 % cotton.
yes and it a good grade
I think it is, just not 100% positive. However, I am positive that I really, really like this pad.
Feels like it.
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic

QUESTION: HOW MANY ELECTRIC PLUGS DOES IT USE IN THE WALL 1 OR 2?
It uses one electric plug in the wall
I have no idea but I LOVE THIS MATTRESS HEARER PAD, this is the best mattress heater pad I have ever owned and I am old..LOVE it
One plug.
There are two single blankets with two controls and two plug ins. The plugins are standard 110 vot.
This only requires 1 outlet.
It uses one. You might want to think about buying one that plugs in. While I love the blanket the wireless remote is on for long periods of course while u sleep and it seems like it always runs out of batteries. I probably would opt for a wired remote if I had it to do over again.
#Heated_Mattress_Pad

QUESTION: WHERE IS THE PLUG ATTACHED TO THE MATTRESS PAD -- AT THE FOOT OR HEAD OF THE BED
At the foot of the bed, on top in the middle at the very end of the pad.
At the foot of the bed / mattress.
At the foot of the bed
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic_Review

QUESTION: IF THE OUTLET IS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAD, CAN YOU STILL TUCK YOUR SHEET AND BLANKETS UNDER THE MATTRESS AT THE FOOT OF THE BED?
Yes, all blankets and sheets can be tucked and artistically arranged.
Yes. Just make sure the cord gets tucked in with the blankets and sheets.
Yes, the plug in is positioned so the cord will lay flat between the mattresses and then the sheets and blankets fit normal as if it weren't there. I Love this heated mattress pad, it fits my 18" mattress very good.
Youbetya!!!! Just place the cord between the mattress and the innerspring.
I tuck my sheets under the foot of my bed. The wire is between my 2 mattresses.
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic_Heated_Mattress_Pad

QUESTION: DOES THE TWIN ALSO HAVE THE WIRELESS CONTROL AND THREE HEATING ZONES?
Yes. It must be plugged in for power, but, then all three heating zones are controlled by the wireless remote which has a backlit screen.
Yes
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic

QUESTION: I SAW ON THE WARNING LABEL THAT YOU CAN'T TUCK IN THE WIRING. DOES THAT MEAN I CAN'T TUCK THE CORDS UNDER MY MATTRESS IN ORDER TO TUCK IN MY SHEET?
We've been carefully tucking in sheets/blankets. Trying not to jerk or pull hard on them making up the bed which would pull on the connectors. The wires themselves seem robust enough. Warm toes are incredibly nice.
You can tuck the sheet around it. You really wouldn't want to tuck any kind of cords or connectors below your mattress, if a cord were bent too far a wire may break and pose a fire hazard. There is a connector on both corners. Our sheets work just fine being just tucked around them.
#Heated_Mattress_Pad

QUESTION: HOW LONG IS THE ELECTRICAL POWER CORD?
On my warmer it's 10 ft long, but maybe longer on the bigger one
10ft.
It is 6 ft from base of plug to base of control. It is 2 ft from top of control to the pad.
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic_Review

QUESTION: IS IT SAFE TO REVERSE THE PAD SO THE PLUG IS AT THE TOP
I can't think of any safety issues by reversing the pad, however it will make it more difficult to connect and disconnect the plugs.
I think so. But the control would be all upside down and left to right. So your right-side Controller would be for your left side of the bed, and the part for the feet would be for the head part of the mattress.
That is how I did mine and it's been OK for over 2 years now.
I'm really not sure. Part that cord is plugged in is flat. You might be able to change to top of bed. I love this heated mattress pad. I highly recommend it! Hope this helps ......
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic_Heated_Mattress_Pad

QUESTION: DOES THIS FIT A TWIN XL
yes no problem - we have two twins xl adjustable beds and my wife loves the foot warmer setting
I'm using mine on a Calif King bed,so I would think so
#Sunbeam_Therapeutic

QUESTION: DOES IT HAVE ANDY OBSTRUCTION LIKE PLUG ON TOP OF PAD? PEOPLE SAY THEY BUMP IT AT NIGHT ON ONE MODEL.
the plugins are at the very bottom of the top side of the pad.. I have touched them a few times .
Yes it has a bump directly in the corner, like a square about 1/4 inch thick I'd say. It bothered me at the beginning but now I am used to it. I'd still buy another one if mine broke.
The plug is at the bottom. You may brush it occasionally, but it is not obtrusive.
No obstruction of any kind; the plug is located at the very lower left corner of the pad and not in the middle where the toes are likely to come in contact with the plug.

#Sunbeam_Therapeutic_Review

QUESTION: HOW THICK OF A MATTRESS DOES IT FIT?
Ours is 21" pillowtop. Fits perfectly. The mesh edging would allow for even larger. It also stays put. We love it.
We have the pad on a 12" thick memory foam mattress on an adjustable bed. The elastic skirt could fit a thicker mattress, if needed. Hope this helps.
Our mattress is 11" thick and it fits fine. By the size of the pockets it would most likely fit at least 13". We have ours on a split king adjustable bed with twin XL x 2.
This mattress cover is designed to accommodate the thick pillow-top mattresses...
It fits a standard thickness mattress with no problem.
