Thermal fuse for convection heater


Hi.
My Convector heater (Delonghi DH15, 110V, 750/1500W with fan) need to replace the thermal fuse(one time cut-off type).
The problem is the marking on the fuse is too dark to read, manufacturer does not supply the parts anymore.
Any one have idea what cut off temp should it be?
I believe any convector heater with similar specification should use similar fuse with temperature range.

Take the thermal cutoff to a local electronics store and see if they can match it. Its not a fuse. Does it look like a diode or resistor? Barrel shaped, with a stiff wire coming out of each end?

Thanks JV, I think we are on the same page, 'thermal cutoff', also known as 'thermal fuse', cut off at certain temp and its one time use like 'fuse'.

Yes its a bullet shaped like diode but the problem is similar temp range cutoff are identical in shape and size, can't just fit simply from size and shape......
