I need a couple of parts for the electric wall heaters in my 3870.

I need one complete thermostat and 3 knobs. Anyone have any extras or know where I can purchase these. The electrical tag inside is mark
SENTINEL
CAT #WHA-1012
120 VOLT
1000 WATTS

When I Google it I don't seem to have any luck.

JV -
Many of these heaters were made by King Mfg. http://www.king-electric.com/index.asp - I would call them and see how they can help. I met them a couple of years ago and found their service excellent.

The problem is with the Salon heater. The knob there gets kicked and clipped by anything moving by it. You eat up all the knobs replacing that one!
I removed the two stateroom internal thermostats and installed wall mount thermostats. They work great and are far more convenient. I located them on the side of the hanging lockers.
I took my Dremel and cut a screwdriver slot in the shaft of the Salon heater and left it like that with no knob to get knocked off. It turns out I didn't need the slot as the shaft turn easily but it is there if it stiffens up.
