Hello, parts for that brand can be difficult in the US. Here are some links

https://www.supplyhouse.com/Stiebel-Eltron-168026-Micro-Switch-for-DHC-Tankless-Water-Heaters

they have other parts for that brand as well.

.

Click here please, contact the "home Plumbing Store" under seller information..... in the right hand margin at the top of the column.

.

Stay in touch as necessary, with some of the models, a new heating element can cost nearly as much as replacing the entire unit.
