Cadet wall heaters are a popular choice for supplemental home heating. They are efficient and can be placed in almost any location.
Cadet heaters work by using an electric resistance heater to create heat. The heater comprises coiled wires that produce heat when electricity is passed through them.
This heat is then transferred to the metal fins of the heater, which then radiate the heat into the room. However, like any other type of heater, they can malfunction.
If your Cadet wall heater stops working, you may need to reset the unit reset button.
It is important to know where the reset button is on your Cadet wall heater if the unit trips the circuit breaker.
Most Cadet wall heaters have a reset button located on the front of the heater near the bottom. Typically, the reset button is red and clearly labeled.
If the reset button is stuck, cleaning it may fix the problem. If not, then you’ll need to call for service.
If your Cadet wall heater does not have a reset button, it may be because it is an older model or a different type of heater.
Pushing the reset button will usually cause a clicking sound from the heater, which indicates that the reset has been successful.
In general, you should only need to reset your Cadet wall heater if it trips the circuit breaker or if the pilot light goes out.
If you have other problems with your heater, such as it not producing enough heat, consult your owner’s manual for troubleshooting tips.
If you cannot find the reset button or the problem persists, call a qualified technician for assistance.

The initial step is to cut a hole in the wall where the heater will be installed. The hole must be large enough to fit the electrical box and the exhaust pipe.
Next, you’ll need to find a suitable location for the heater and install the electrical box. Make sure that the box is firmly attached to the wall to not become loose over time.
Once the electrical box is in place, you can connect the wires to the heater. Be sure to use the proper size and type of wire for your specific heater model.
After the wires are connected, you can install the exhaust pipe. Install the pipe so that air flows to the exterior and is not hindered.
Finally, you can install the front cover of the heater. Guarantee that the cover is firmly secured in place so that it does not come loose and fall off.
Now your new Cadet wall heater is installed and ready to use. Read the owner’s manual for safety and operating instructions.
