Question about Heaters

I have a Charmglow model HBL-15SDLP/M20 electric heater. The rocker switch went bad on it and I can't find a replacement part anywhere. The manufacturer said they can't get replacement parts. The part number is HCKD-044. Any suggestions

  • Anonymous We purchased the same unit in the fall of 2008 and 2 months ago the fan power switch totally fried and almost caused a fire in our home. We are looking for another switch for the unit as well and have run into the same problem with the company not having any parts.

Answer # 1

The switch itself is a (double pole single throw ) 15 amp 250 volt /20 amp 125 volt.You can buy any switch like that.The hard part is trying to find the same size to fit the hole in the heater.

  • pdees246 Same model #, same problem with the rocker switch. Luckily the switch is stuck on the on position, so we plug it in and then unplug when finished. Any suggestions for parts?
