Why do electric blankets fail their test?
- Because they were over 10 years old and had no safety features built into the controller.
- Because of a leakage of voltage to the surface of the blanket.
- The elements were able to move around inside the blanket with the potential to rub together and cause a short circuit.
- Elements were not secured within the blanket and were exposed to the surface.
- Power lead fasteners were broken and unable to be secured.
- The surface of the blanket was worn, exposing the elements.
