Bathroom heater: the string that turns it on came off

I have an electric heater for the room that has my bathtub, so when I take a bath I won't be cold. The heater turns on by pulling the string that hangs down from it. My wife pulled the string too hard and it came off. I opened the heater and tried to attach the string to the knob, but couldn't see how to do so. Can someone please help me on this?
Thank you

    I pulled the string out of a heater also in a bathroom. Hoping I can fix it myself.

The string is actually attached to a bead chain. If the bead chain is still there, you can replace the cord with a new one from the hardware store. If she has actually pulled the chain out of the switch, I suggest you get a qualified electrician to replace the switch. They are quite inexpensive. (the switch, not the electrician)

There may be a service valve under the sink. If not, there may be a valve over your water heater that you can shut off until the faucet is repaired.

This is a bathtub heater. it is only 1500 watts. they are not meant to heat the water in a bathtub. They are considered a maintenance heater ONLY.
This style heater will maintain whatever temperature you put in the bathtub. It will only produce about 2 degrees of heater per hour.
solution: start with the water temperature where you want it to be when bathing and this heater will keep it that temperature while the pump is running and the tub is full of water.

Bath Specs Comparison

Generally, the size of the bathing area in the bathroom will determine whether a 5-foot, 6-foot or corner bath is selected. If space is not an issue then other factors can be considered. Most people compare the features, performance, style, comfort and price of the various baths being evaluated.
