Tvr 10271?

My roommates girl plugged in a coffee maker and it started sparking. Shut it down and it smelt "burnt" so she passed it off gave it to me to fix. I am unsure of the full details, we have both US and UK spec plugs, chances are she plugged the US 110v appliance into the UK 220v socket.

I took it apart and it was pretty obvious what went wrong. A part that looks like a large capacitor blew up, along with 2 diodes. I pulled the orange disc and it has TVR 10271 marked on it. A little research and it says it is a metal oxide varistor. Ran a digikey search and couldn't find it. I was wondering if any of you guys would know where to get one?
