I am using a small attic room whilst I complete a degree. Over the winter it was VERY cold. I had a Morphy Rchards blanket used a few times and took that to the room. Worked for 2-3 mos and quit. Well I had had it a while, no way to return it or so I thought. Bought a NEW MR blanket thru amazon on Feb 10 2013. It arrived. Worked fine. Got warmer out and so I stored it away. Then we've had a cold spell and so I brought it back out. Ahhh! such comfort. Used it ONE MORE NIGHT ONLY and the next morning, it was okay, and then it DIED. So, I had this 4 mos and used it for 3. Now Morphy Richards REFUSES to stand behind their 3 yr warranty. Tells me to chase up Amazon. Amazon only guarantees products one month. THEY tell me to chase up MR. Frankly this is a defective blanket and its Morphy Richards' responsibility. As far as I can tell ALL MP electric blankets are GARBAGE and not worth your time and effort. Try another brand. They sell bad products and then wont stand behind their own warranty!!
