Electric wall heater in bathroom

Wanting to replace original wall heaters from the 50s that do not work, but there is electricity (110) to them. What, if any, insulation and caulk could be used to try and seal the wall from the heater box that will need to be replaced.
Thank you.

Any type of silicone caulk could be used to seal the cabinet to the tile. The problem is going to be to find one that fits in the same place.

Thank you. It has a cutout of 11 by 11 and I have found one that has a cutout of 11 by 9 so I will just have a little repair work.

I had originally thought you had tile. You can probably add a piece of 5/4's (1" thick) to each side and then add some molding around the heater to trim it up.
