V24779 - Sunbeam TemperForm Heating Pad
Stopped working after 1 year
When I first got this heating pad I loved it., loved the way it folds. HOWEVER, it no longer works!! It is 1 1/2 years old and just stopped working. Meanwhile, the tried and true that don't fold., works years later. I don't recommend this item., I can see why it is no longer available.
" EXCELLENT PRODUCT "
This is a very versitale product. It can be used for a variety of needs. It gets as hot as any other heating pad. It is not only adaptable to different parts of the body in order to soothe discomfort or pain but the timer can be set for short periods or indefinite time periods which I love. Who wants to constantly turn on when it goes off like the others in market place. It is washable. Very nice. Where the pad can be snapped together if desired, does not have heat but it is not needed there. I have arthiritis throughout my body. This product allows me to use on areas of the body that conventional heating pads do not. Good for any one who needs heat application for what ever reason. Great design! Great product.!
Where's the Heat
What a disappointment. I was looking forward to this heating pad, cause I can surely use the warmth. Well "OK, WHERE'S THE HEAT" It was barely warm. I called Sunbeam and they want to send me another one. I said "no thanks", it is not worth the aggravation of get it, send it back, get it send it back, so I will just return this one to QVC for the refund. Love the design, but give me heat.
I purchased this product and am sorry to say that I was "very disappointed" in it.
It didn't heat up enough for me. The price is "high" and I did send it back. The
concept of it was good, as I liked the way it "wrapped" around your shoulders. I
know there were others who agree with my review. Hopefully, Sunbeam will
improve this product and be more successful with the heat.

I LOVE IT!!!! HANDS FREE, THERE IS A HIGH SETTING SO IT DOES GET VERY HOT!!!!! LOVE IT!! LOVE IT!! LOVE IT !!!!!
The product works just fine as far as heating up enough. My only complaint is that it is too big for a petite person 5'1"). I've got at least 6 inches too much overlap so I can't snap it closed when placed around my shoulders - or it would fall off! Probably works better for an average sized person. I like that it curves around, however, vs trying to make a square pad fit. Just wish it came in a petite size as well.
Covers the best parts of your neck and shoulders.
This heat pad makes sure it covers all the hurting areas.
Wonderful heating pad. A++++++
I was so excited when I saw this heating pad. I have terrible neck and shoulder pain. I used it right away. It heats up just fine. I don't know what other people are complaining about. In fact, I can't use it on the highest setting because it gets too hot for me. I love how it sits on my shoulders without having to hold it there.
I have had MANY heating pads in the past but this one is the best I've ever had. I have migraines, and shoulder pain and being able to just wrap this around me and put the middle piece up the back of my neck is heaven. I like the weight of it because it forms to me and stays there. TRY IT!
Why do so many not work?
I have purchased 4 of these heating pads from stores, and had to return all 4. None of them worked, they heated up a little in one spot or two, and some went to F2 on the dial. I contacted Sunbeam and they sent me a replacement, which did not work. I contacted them again to let them know the replacement did not work and they told me they would be happy to send me another one. They did not want me to send that one back, they told me to cut the electric cord and throw it away. They were not concerned with the fact I had 5 other heating pads that did not work. I just received the replacement, and it does not work either. I love the design of this heating pad, it is a perfect shape for people like me with Fibromyalgia, if anyone out there can purchase one that works I would be happy to send a bank check for the purchase price & shipping charges. I have read some reveiws that say they do work, I just have not found one that does.
Reviews are right
I wish I would have read the reviews before ordering. In my opinion, this barely gets warm, let alone warm enough for my use. I thought perhaps the wires inside were not right at first, but when I came to this site and read the reviews, I realized it was not just me or my unit.
Otherwise, great concept, but without strong heat, what's the point?
Good idea for the neck
I have fibromyalgia and so when I saw this heating pad, I thought it would be ideal for my neck and back pain. It does conform well to my neck back and shoulders, however, it could have a little stronger heat for me. I agree with some of the other writers that it doesn't heat as well as it should. But I going to keep it because it is still the only type of heating pad I have found like this one. Can't find one like it in the stores.
