Cadet heater quite working

I've got a Cadet C122 wall heater that quite working. There's 240V to the heater and continuity across the reset switch. No continuity across a round metal device that's at the top of the heater above the coils. Is this normal or is this a shutoff device that can't be reset? If so can it be replaced or do I need to replace the heater? Thanks!

Re: Cadet heater quite working

That round metal thing is called a klixon overload. look on the side of it and an amperage range should be there. replace the unit and the element should work unless the element itself is blown. check for continuity across the element with your meter with the wires disconnected.

The Heater does not heat, the fan blows cold air

Check the heater to see if it's a 120V or 240V. If it's a 240, make sure there is 240 volts at the supply before going any further. If supply voltage is not the problem, it's probably the heating element OR a thermal overload. Take off the cover and see if there is one or more reset button(s) inside. Try pressing the resets. If all else fails, turn off power and use a multimeter to test for continuity across the heating element.

I have a cadet heater not working. When I try to push the reset button it does not seem to go in at all. Do I need to replace the complete heater unit or could it be the thermostat?

I had this same problem, which required a new heater. The thermostat tested fine. A bypass of the thermostat switch was attempted and the unit still would not work. The reset switch had never tripped to indicate a problem.

My cadet c202 heater is running the fan is blowing cold air but no heat, is it the thermostat or heating elements or both???or ?????

I work in a motel and replace these heaters quite often, Cadet C202, a 240v 2000 watt wall heater. Most of the time when they blow cold air it's because the heating element is broken. First turn off the circuit breaker, then remove the heater from the wall. If you take out three screws, slide the top cover off, bend the two little tabs and take out the heating element, you can examine it and usually you will find a place where it is broken, it's like a big spring. Replacement elements can be ordered from online stores such as Be very careful, 240 VAC is very dangerous! <!-- from fixya rte -->

Heater is excessivly noisy, can be heard over tv

first, my research into the Cadet model #09954 is a 240v unit. if it is wired to only 120v that may be your problem. I am not even sure it work work on 120v.

Cadet baseboard heater not working

first... did this heater work properly in the past?? if not, the wiring may be incorrect..... but to answer your question the safety limit is usually on the left end of the baseboard (inside the small cover). it is the round thing that is installed inline on the wiring. replacing it is an easy fix... just be sure to turn off the electric power FIRST.

Cadet wall heater

Since I don't know what model of heater you have there might be a reset button to reset or an over temp switch (button sensor with 2 wires going to it) that needs to be replaced. You might check the recall list to see if this one has been recalled and should not be used.

Baseboard heater cadet model

Check the circuit it is plugged into first with a tester or something else.
If it is 240v there are two hot wires.
You have to examine it first for power and then I would check the thermostat next.
You could have an open element.
