    The Controller Led Lights Up Red But You Can Not Turn It On Or Increase The Heat Setting I Opened It Up And The Fuse On The Power In Side Is Good What Should I Test Next? Thank You For Your Help I Am New To This forum

    If the electric blanket doesn't heat up, and if it's a simple switched arrangement, then the blanket has a fault.

    Post some photos of the controller so we know what we're talking about. Otherwise we can't really comment (which is why we haven't)

    Her are some photos of the board. I did ohm out the blanket and it has no breaks in it. I also tried the controller on another blanket we have and it did not work either.

    The majority of failures with these items is a break in the cable where it enters the strain releif on the remote. Do a continuity check of each conductor in the cable before tearing into the electronics. Be sure to disconnect from the blanket when doing the test.
