Question about Cadet Manufacturing Com-Pak Plus C151 Heater

1 Answer

My cadet heaters (3 of them), which are 2002/3, shut off after heating up from things placed in front of them. That's great for protecting us from fire, but they don't reset after pressing the little reset button. There is nothing burnt or indicating damage but they no longer work. What can I do? Thanks. Michael

Cub Cadet HDS-2135 13B-214F100, runs great for 45 - 60 minutes then cuts out, only run on full choke, cannot mow but runs. Cools down works fine again

check the fuel filter and fuel line. it may need to be insulated to protect from heat. running on choke means it is starving for fuel . take the carburetor off and clean it real good. be sure the fuel lines are away from heat source.

My feature comforts fan heater won't turn back on

Many plastic cased heaters are provided with a safety device (thermotemp) to protect it from over heating, especially fan operated type heaters. Once blown only a tecnician could replace it. You did not state what type of heater this is.

i am also an electrician. we have had the same problems on our properties.the motor goes out which in turn keeps the element on and gets hot and burns up, setting a small fire. more smoke than fire. cadet needs to put a safety cut out so that when you lose the fan it shuts the element off and the other way around as well.
these are dangerous and will be replacing 100's of them

Only the low setting works for a little while. heat stops but fans will still run.If i turn up higher nothing, not even the fan. Heater has been cleaned and has a new thermostat swicth. Any help wuold be...

Two things come to mind here, one is the over heat protection is tripped and preventing the element from coming on, second is a bad high heat element. You can ring these out with a volt ohm meter and check both, the element if good rings out as a dead short, the over heat protection should be normally closed which means it to rings out as dead short. If it rings out open then it is tripped. some of these can be reset and most only need to be replaced. So check these items out and good luck.

Grandson put something in front of cadet heater. Now it's not working. Is there a reset button?

Yes there is a reset. Take of the front grille and you'll see the button on the front marked "HEATER RESET - PUSH". Make sure your unit is clean and free from lint and dust, which will accumulate over time and use. Inspect the unit for any signs of scorching or damage from whatever was put in front of the heater.

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 -->

Not a cadet but a King

shut off the breaker, then, remove the front grill. look for a device about the size of a nickel. could be fastened to the upper case. this is called a klixon overload. there are numbers stamped into the side of it. one of these are either temperature or an amperage value. get a replacement from an electrical supply house. it is probably blown. it is in series with the element. its purpose is to open [then reset] when an increase in current is evident. it is a bi-metal device - two dissimilar metals that bend at different rates when current is applied to it and opens a set of contacts.
