Need off-low-high switch for Marvin 2060 heater

My Marvin2060 heater would not come on. After checking the reset (OK), I opened the unit, and, with an electrical meter, I determined that the off-low-high switch is defective. This is a three position switch.
The switch looks like a square wafer (about 1"). On one side is stamped: 13A 120V. On the other side is stamped: Tower Mfg 6A 120V.
Can you help me find this switch?

As you probably know by know Marvin is no longer in business. The original supplier of the electrical switches was tower mfg. They will not sell to distributers or supplies due to chance of legal matters, they will only sell to oem's. We have looked extensively and have found one supplier at present, if you find on please let us know. The switches we have purchased are 120VAC 13A and have exact mounting, one tab one screw with press in wire connectors. The only difference is this switches' stem is 5mm shorter. This means the bottom outside of the original control knob must be shaved 1/4" this will make for a perfect fit and will make this knob the same thickness as thermostat knob. This switch sells for $6.95 plus postage and comes with directions for modifications.

One of the techniques I found to "re-energize" an Quatrz elelment is to Remove the cool element (unit unplugged, of course) and try to smooth the ends with sandpaper (220 grit) and then do the smae for the contacts. Replace element and see if it lights up.

Rmember NOT TO TOUCH quartz element with Bare Hands!!

Oil from skin can react with elelment and cause it to explode.

Marvin Quartz heater element

Very simple to install the replacement element. Insert one end of the element into the bottom receptacle on either side, press the element down (it's spring-loaded), then slide the top of the element into the center opening of the top receptacle, push to appropriate side (the side of receptacle, same as the bottom), then release. Then do the same with the other element (if both are out).

Intermittent heater control Marvin 2060

On Monday, 1/21/08, I returned the Marvin 2060 heater to the store I purchased in 02/07 since the freeze guard stop working. The owner left me a voice message at home and said he after doing some research, he discovered Marvin went out of business in 12/07.
And the heater is no longer covered under the warranty. The owner gave me a telephone number, 800.326.3690 which carry the parts for Marvin Heater. I have not called the number since I am looking for another heater with the freeze guard feature since it something I need quickly.
