27" GE about 12 years old? Dead, looking for thermistor part number

27" GE
12 years old?
has been fixed 3 or 4 times before. Pulled it apart found what I believe to be a thermistor cracked apart, as well as the 5 amp fuse blown. Went to 3 local shops and the last one (a GE service place) said he cant get the part. Come on it is a damn thermistor. He said he cant cross the part number because it is a "house" number. Someone must be able to point me in the correct direction.

numbers on it are as follows:
100-01A
A1739

It kind of looks as though it has maybe been fixed before. It is broke into 3 pieces, but fairly big solder points on it. Can I resolder it back together?

Typically these thermistors

Typically these thermistors are in the degaussing circuit. (At least that is how it used to be in my TV shop days -- years ago) They are low resistance cold, and higher once they heat up. Soldering it together would make your degaussing coil run all the time -- you don't want that. If you can get a schematic for the set it might not be too hard to determine the value - or a work-around.
