Default habistat fault/repair

i have a 300w habistat thermostat, switch type, bought used. it has been working fine until last night. it does still work in that it switches the lamp on and off (fitted a 50w deep heat projector yesterday) but when the power clicks off the indicator light dims right down and doesnt go off completely.
i have checked with a normal bulb in the lamp, on a different socket and at different temps. its stays the same. i currently have the lamp set up on a second thermostat and its working fine. so it has to be the thermostat itself. if i can repair then i would definitely rather fix it up, i dont like to waste stuff.

i'm sure some folks would carry on anyway but i am paranoid about fire with good reason so i will not be using something i have any doubts about. i am not the best with electrics but if it is beyond my ability then i know a guy who really knows his stuff. i just dont want to bother him if its something i can sort out.
