Heating element for Rocket Espresso Cellini Premium Plus V2?

any advice on where I can buy it in US and or part number? is it 1200w 120v? The espresso machine stops heating accidentally. Pump works. The green light is on. Power on heating element 125v. resistance ~50Mohms. Look like it is dead, I assume it should be less than Kohms. {image}
