    Need to replace MOV's and can't get full name. MOV marked:
    PO
    Z575LNS OR LN5
    A3/G6-1 (not sure)

    That is quite possibly a varistor made by CKE / HVCA. Their markings are very similar to the one you have. Here is a datasheet of some of their MOV's that come close to matching the number you have. However, these are all through hole packages where as yours is like a quick connect or formed leads.

    First you need to find a supplier with that size package, then look down their list and 575 is the voltage code.

    This looks looks a typical Siemens unit (blue color). Look in their database.
    The size is a good indicator of its joule (energy) rating.
