Ordering Information

Includes a built-in on/off switch and stainless steel grill with frame attachment.

For new installations, a wall can is required—sold separately.

These models work best at elevations under 10,000 feet.

Technical Information

UL safety standards require the heater to be placed a minimum distance of 6 inches (15.2 cm) from adjacent surfaces and 4-1/2 inches (11.4 cm) from the floor. Cadet recommends a 12-inch clearance from all surfaces for longer and cleaner performance. A 3-foot (91.44 cm) minimum clearance is required for furniture or other objects placed directly in front of the heater.

Install vertically. This heater is not approved for horizontal or ceiling installation.

Electric wall heaters and thermostats work best when installed on an inside wall. We recommend installing the heater assembly after walls are finished. Heater must be cleaned every six months minimum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for cold mornings! I have purchased 7 units, and everything works as advertised. Your CS reps are all top-notch and especially the tech advisors (Jordan especially)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Effective My home was built in 1951 and had Bauer bathroom wall heaters in the two bathrooms. They died and I found out Bauer is no longer in business and this Cadet model is the only that is similar, although it's two inches taller. I replaced one that was mounted in a plaster wall several years ago, but have not tackled the tile bath. It works very well, heating the bathroom quickly. The fan operation makes it more efficient than radiant heat. The fan is very quiet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of junk This heater is the retrofit version of the old radiant heater. This is a poor excuse as it doesn't fit into the existing heater box and has a hard to install added 1/2 inch extra trim piece that you have to jocky around with while trying to put on the front cover. The heater/fan portion of this unit also gives a poor excuse for heat. It may be 1000 watts yet by the time you feel it the level is probably down to less than 500 watts. I don't think I will ever understand why they got rid of the old RB heater. There are still thousands of those out there and this RBF is a failed attempt to replace it.
