I have a Charmglow model # cgl300ehbc. About a month after I bought this, it stopped sensing the room temp and the digital thermostat control will no longer work. I'm guessing the room temp sensor has failed, but how/where can I get a new one?

The window units normally have a sensor thats attached to the front of the indoor coil. This controls the thermostat. I usually pull this sensor away from the coil because it stops cooling before the room is cool. It is attached to the cold coil so it senses the coil temp, not the room temp. You can normally see it when you remove the air filter. Don't break it! It may be a wire or small copper tube
the thermostat controlling your unit likely has a window type of programming for digital or mechanical adjustment for older style thermostat that sets a minimum off temp and a maximum on temp, there may be an adjustment to set the range it operates at, otherwise you may have a defective thermostat controller unit and it needs replacing also insure that the temperature sensing element is clean and free of dust build-up and your filter is clean
Without the age and model number makes it a problem diagnosing. However, it is not unheard of for a cold control (thermostat) to shut off the machine and hang up and refuse to return to the on position. The cold control on temp is usually about 37 degrees. If left off for 8 hours, the sensing bulb on the thermostat would reach room temperature, and with that additional temperature (heat) could cause enough pressure on a balky thermostat to reset to the on position.
