Finding parts for a heater like this would be all most imposable you could how ever take it apart and put 115 volts to the 2 wires coming out of the fan to see if it is the fan or the switch that controls it. Check the switch with a continuity meter if the switch is bad you might be able to replace with a toggle switch the safest thing to do would be buy a new one these small heaters are mostly solid state which means you can't repair them . Good luck.......
Call 1-800-234-0604 - This is Vornado's consumer service line. This manufacturer is well known for great customer service, and they should be able to tell you if something is wrong with the unit. If so, and if the heater is under warranty, they will fix it or replace it for free. You won't even have to pay shipping to send the unit in.
did it get set on its side, there is a saftey switch inside to kickout the heating element if its knocked over, unplug it, pick it up and turn it around at different angles, return upright, shake gently, plug in and see if it puts out heat
If it is a wall furnace with a built-in thermostat(sounds like the 1 to 10 dial is the thermostat) into the control then you would need to buy an updated gas contol valve that will hook up to an external thermostat and a programmable thermostat. The old gas contol valve would need to be removed and the new one installed. Then the thermostat wires would connect to the gas control valve millivolt system. A heating company can perform this service for you and I highly recommend you have it professionaly installed if you are not experienced on this process. You could leave a gas leak or other hazardous situation if not installed correctly.
This could be many things - like the thermostat, the wiring, one of the heating elements, etc. Unless this unit is less than 3 years old and depending on the use, it might be less expensive to replace it.
I would say from what you have described your problem is a bad thermostat heat sensor (you may have to replace the whole thermostat on this model!) This is a very common problem for this unit!

After calling Vornado Corporation, they suggested that the room temperature monitor might be failing as it read 65 degrees no matter where you started the heater. I took the unit back to the store I purchased it from, and we unpacked another unit and found the same problem existed. Therefore, the product is not capable of heating a room properly and I will continue my search for a space heater to control the temperature in my upstairs office which does not have air ducts for heat.
If anyone has recommendations I would be interested in their comments.
