I have a unit that is missing a knob to move one of the the levers. Lever is there and works if I use a screw driver to move it back and forth. Is this something that can be repaired and if yes any suggestions as to where I can send it?

It doesn't sound like there is any repair work to be done. You just need a replacement heater control knob. These are available from most of the first gen supply houses. They just push on.

I broke a lever on mine while trying to pull off one of the knobs. The lever (slide) broke even with the face of the unit not allowing a new knob to go back on. I tried many different ways to glue it back on to no avail.
I ended up buying another unit (used) that wasn't broken.
I believe the parts houses (Rick's, Ground Up, etc.) sell them used (when available) and there may be a repro item now.

To get the knobs off you need to use pliers and a protectant rag and work the knob up and down while pulling. It's very difficult to remove the knobs just by pulling them straight out.

I bought a heater control off E Bay for $40. I have seen these in quantity for sale at Carlsile!

Classic industries lists a complete heater control unit for $140 if you have to have new. try matts classic bowties in the bbay area. They usually have the CI stuff cheaper than CI.
