So I broke this off of my gas regulator or unit control. I've heard it called both.

The face of it you see is where it would of been connected to the underside of the regulator.


Anyway to fix it without getting a new one?

This is the side that would of faced down and connected to the burner assembly.

And this is the underside of the regulator where it snapped off...

You can see where it's jagged. Is the circle to the left of the red mark.

Hi, This is a bit tricky. If you could find a used control and burner(maybe from a plumber friend?), I’d try that first if you can find one for your heater. Even if you could remove the broken piece from the control, you still need a replacement nut, preferably from a used burner assembly. :?

Yours, Larry
