You can go to the radio shack and purchase a universal switch to replace it.As long as the replacement switch will hold 900 watts or more(125volts)it will work.Take the switch with you.Replacement parts are almost impossible to find.Hopefully,this will help you.As the heaters go out,switch or thermostat,or element,I but a new one,I have been for a long time.I end up with extra parts to fix one or two,so I end up using the heaters longer than expected.Don`t buy the digital L E D versions,they won`t work right,and go out quickley. If I can help,let me know.I hope this is helpful.

If the switch lights do come on when the switches are activated then the only parts that might be failed are the resistors that heat the oil or the thermostat. You will have to remove the cover on the panel (held in there with clips that you must pry open) and, using a basic multimeter set on resistance, check the continuity of the resistors. If they are ok then the thermostat has failed and it's no longer passing the current. You can bypass it but you must make sure the radiator doesn't overheats - from now on you will have to use it only supervised. Or you could visit several repair shops and find out if they have replacement ones - it will cost you around $60 to replace it.
