Wall mount would be betterJun 23, 2009
By William Abrams
I bought this for a baseboard electric heater because I didn't want to go to the trouble of mounting and wiring a thermostat in the wall. The first disadvantage is that you have to get down on floor with a flashlight to set and program it. The second disadvantage is that whatever temperature you set it is not what the room will be because it is mounted on the heater. When the heater comes on it warms the thermostat much sooner than the room and cuts the heater off. So to make it work you have to set it much higher than you want the room to be and then come back and reset it after the room has warmed up.

Absolute piece of crapFeb 27, 2011
One of the reasons I purchased this was that the on/off rocker switch would be a nice replacement for the old knob thermostat, which half the time ended up getting turned in the wrong direction so that the heater was left on at the highest setting when the intention had been to turn it off.
Unfortunately, switching the switch to off completely resets the program, including the time of day! That's right, flipping the switch on the bottom of this uint to off will completely erase the entire schedule that you've tediously programmed into it, using its paltry three buttons while sitting on the floor.
Also, this unit is a very poor fit for the Cadet baseboard heater that I purchased at the same time. And the electronics in this thing probably cost about a nickel to manufacture. This thing is horribly overpriced garbage.
Do not buy!

Great Thermostat For On-Baseboard UseNov 07, 2009
By Robert Plamondon
If you have electric baseboard heat and want a digital programmable setback thermostat -- and you do, because it will make your rooms more comfortable and save you money -- but you don't want to wire in a regular thermostat on the far side of the room, this on-the-baseboard thermostat is the one for you.
It only fits Cadet Series F baseboards, so you'll probably end up replacing the one you have now.
Installation is the same as for any on-the-baseboard thermostat (have an electrician do it if you're not familiar with household wiring). Programming is pretty easy. The thermostat's temperature regulation is much better than I expected. I thought the heater would heat up the sensor and mess it up, but the sensor is right at the bottom, and the way convection works is that hot air exits the top of the unit, which draws cold air in at the bottom, and putting the sensor at the bottom of the thermostat assembly does the trick.
The only issues are:
1. Power outages (including a blink of about a second) cause the unit to lose track of what time it is. It still remembers its heating program, though.
2. If you have furniture in front of your baseboard heaters, getting at the thermostat can be a nuisance.
FANTASTIC!Nov 05, 2012
By Harry Truman
The 3405A cadet digital thermostat is eons ahead of the old bimetal cadet switch it replaced! Don't hesitate to replace yours. The new digital thermostat is way more accurate and so it does not over-shoot and under-shoot the temperature. This thermostat will provide you with an even room temperature. Say good bye to the thermal swings... it is just right!
Most home owners should not install these,Leave it to someone that knows what there doing.Oct 30, 2012

These aren't a fix all. No they wont read as accurate as a wall thermostat there lower to the floor. Yes it will take a little more work setting it. But its still better than a twist to set thermostat.Dont install it yourself, Most of you wont BEABLE TO MAKE IT WORK. Hire electrician.
They dont fit all baseboard heaters..
