Hello: We just had one of those exact heat controls and sold it in our ebay store, I can send you some photos to compare the controls. That specific heat control model is very hard to find and normally you do not see them, I have not found them anywhere else.
We have a cookware store on ebay for the last 5 years and carry some replacement parts for the vintage appliances - you can email me through the ebay store - our ebay store ID is bestcookwareforless! (with the exclamation point at the end) or email me at email@example.com and I will add you to my customer wanted items list. We get excellent pre-owned used heat controls in all the time and are more than happy to help our customers locate a specific one.
All is not lost, so don't throw out your favorite Hoover skillet - they are built like a tank, made to last and very hard to find nowdays. Keep her and get her a new heat control and she will last another 50 years (smile).
Hope we can help you!
Kindest Regards, Jasmine

SOURCE: I Have a Hoover
The probe at the link below is a universal replacement for the one on your skillet that has malfunctioned, if you are sure that he probe is the problem then it should work, if the skillet is the problem and not the probe then it is time for a new one as the old can't be repaired.

I stumbled on this website by accident when I was trying to find a heat control for my Hoover fry pans. I own three. One is a model 8611 Fondue/Minnie Fry pan. It uses a "UniProbe" JPR 904. The control is rated 1650 watts, the pan is rated 800 watts. Your 8600 is a larger full sized pan. I do not own one of these pans to check the wattage. Read the wattage on the back of your old control as well as the bottom center of the pan itself. My research has not turned up any replacement for this part design. I never saw a competitor use this Uniprobe. I own a B3039 Broiler Lid full sized fry pan (Vintage about 1975). The pan is rated at 1200 watts with the control rated at 1500 watts. Yours is most likely a similar rating. The control is a no. 9906 or a78T. Neither, the UniProbe or the newer type is available from Hoover. The UniProbe was used in the 1960's and early 70's. It had three female connections. The outer two bring the wall current to the imbedded heating element in the pan. The center connection transfers heat from the pan to the temperature control and causes it to go on and off making it automatic. The later type control has the two outer female connections and brings in the power. The center connection was changed to the common male probe and transfers heat to the control to make it automatic. After a serious hunt for replacements I located the Presto control 0690005 rated at 1500 watts (just like the Hoover). Presto says their parts only work with Presto appliances. It works with Hoover for me, so I am happy. I bought the Presto griddle to test the probe compatibility and obtain the needed probe. I did find a company (by doing a "Bing" search) that claims they can bore the pan to accept the later type, probe (www.kieferappliance.com). Their approach sounds promising but if you decide to try this approach, do your own research of this company. If I understand your question correctly: I am not a parts dealer. I found a part that is serviceable for this long out of production "GEM" from Hoover. I am giving owners of these pans a way to continue using their pan as I did with mine. The downside seems to be that my simple fix for one style cord won't work for you. However, those that have one of the later models can continue to enjoy the uniqueness of these fine frying pans by trying the Presto control. CAUTION: Do not just start trying other parts to replace a missing part. It might be a dangerous experiment. Hope this clears up any misunderstandings. (As a side note: The main reason these controls fail is rough use of the cord going into the control itself. Too much pressure where the cord enters the control and the fine strands of wire will eventually break causing no electricity to get to the appliance. This will happen with any toaster or coffee maker or lamp cord or electric drill etc. These may be able to be repaired but it is not easy and is very time consuming.
