Hot end broken wire and no support

Hey, So I've been running my newish printer non-stop supporting our local first responders in the covid-19 fight.  My hot end has been having issues and finally a wire broke and now the temp sensors are screwed.  Where can I get a replacement quickly???  I have lots of prints to finish.  For some reason I can't log into my Prusa account and cant find the parts that I need..Pls any helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated..

RE: Hot end broken wire and no support

Hi Brian, when I looked yesterday, there were no heaters on the Prusa web shop...  

You don't say where you are... 

If in the UK, e3d Online, have heaters and thermistors

https://e3d-online.com/prusa-mk3-hotend-spares

there is a list of resellers 

https://e3d-online.com/resellers

you may be able to get items there, 

Failing that the heater is a 24 volt 40watt cartridge heater, 

Maybe Ebay

 heaters are not polarity conscious. 

the thermistor is a semitec 100K thermistor

Thermistors are not polarity conscious
