Go to the Prusa eShop, make sure you are logged in, 
look in the Mk3 spares list 

consider getting a spare 24volt heater and extruder thermistor, plus PTFE Tubes for the extruder, and you can replace the existing kit, to get going quickly, and repair the old one for standby!

regards Joan

or you could order direct from E3d or one of their distributors!

I keep one new one in the house at all times.  if you replace the heat cartridge or thermister, use a heat gun and plier before you use an Allen wrench.
