You will either need to find a Coleman dealer in a store, in the phone book, or online.
Ask them for the part number of the switch, and then you can buy it in a store, or on the computer.
There is a store in Branson, Missouri, we were in last year.
On the computer, try Amazon or e-bay after you get a part number. God bless your efforts.

Broken knob

Turn off the power to the appliance. Squirt WD40 liberally all round the knob, trying to get it in behind it. Wiggle the knob and press it down and up if possible to let the WD40 oil work in to the dirty or stuck joints. Leave for a few hours and wiggle it again to see if its loosened up.

Dial won't set

you can possibly remove the knob itself, and see if you can turn the dial itself. if you can, then you can probably see the knob is broken. if if the shaft turns, but doesn't move the gears, then you will just need a new dial switch.

Unable to replace front control knobs when they go on cannot turn them

the knobs only go on one way, you have to line them up then they will push on. if you have an electric range you have to push on the knob before you turn it. failure to push before turning will result in breaking the knob again.

Broken steam control knob on our delinghi magnifica 3300, do you carry stock and what is the part number please?

My original steam knob split into two pieces an was unable to locate an OEM knob. However Home Depot had a cabinet knob, silver color with a quarter inch shaft that fit perfectly!! I believe it looks better than the original and certainly much stronger. Thank you Home Depot.

Unable to change the blower position, air is just coming out from the dashboard vents, moving knob doesn't change air direction. also when blower is set at 3 0r 4 unable to turn the temperature down....

the air will not blow through windscreen vents but is blowing through every where else. makes no difference when changing the direction of the knob to the windscreen only. you can hear the air blowing but nothing comes through?
