If the switch has changed its color means it did burn out at one of the terminals. Yes, you can buy a new switch.
But if this is not the problem it can be that the thermostat is not working.
There are thermostats available.
But if the thermostat and the siwtch are not the problem it may be that the junction with the electrical resistance is burned up. This can also be replaced.
All items I found in Mexico City.
I do not think it is economically feasible to acquire the parts and replace them. Chinese made appliances or spare parts are not to be found for a good price and still are not reliable. Buying a new one is the solution, perhaps.

    My heater switch lights would come on, but no heat would be produced. I took the side off and started checking electrical connections and eventually found a small, inline, thermostatic fuse was burnt out.. Couldn't find one online, but did find one at Radio Shack that looked the same and had the same ratings, except for the heat range.
    Anyway, a $2 part kept me from throwing it away. It pays to look around.

Lakewood 7096 heater


Some of the newer models have a thermal fuse which may be blown. It doesn't look like a normal fuse at all. It is similar to a transistor in looks and should have continuity from one end to the other. It will be tied in to the incoming power cord inside the heater, and may be covered with rubber coating within the wire. It will look different when you notice it. Sometimes its too far down inside where the heat causes it to blow prematurely. The purpose is to cut the power to the unit in case it overheats. You can get one at radio shack for less than a couple of bucks. The older models don't normally have one, but I would suggest you put one in it if that's the case.
