Question about Heating & Cooling
No indicator light on buttons on switch jumped it with a wire and heat came on
Newark Electronics or any other electronics distributor. You will need the precise size of the switch and the electrical rating of the switch and the contact configuration to determine a suitable replacement.

Similar problem here. But in my case, it was a blown fuse. There's an in-line fuse on the internal wiring of the heater. Take the control-side off (remove the bottom grey plastic bracket, then remove a sheet metal screw, then slide the whole assembly down off of the radiator). Where the elements go into the reservoir at the bottom of the radiator, the white wire should have an inline fuse connected to it. It will probably be covered with what looks like heat-shrink tubing. Snip, snip, and replace.

Try changing circuits (plug into one not protected by the same breaker.)
While the heater element can fail in your heater, I have had to replace several breakers after only a few years use after they became overly sensitive.
