Welcome to the forum.

Seeing as how the part appeared to be mounted on the chassis instead of the heat sink, it is probably not a thermostatic cut-off switch.

But seeing as how it interrupts the AC power, I think it is a circuit breaker.

I think that part is a "surge protector."

They didn't do much good back then.

Hook the wires back up without it and see what happens.

Be sure to use an in-line fuse though.
