Have you taken any measurements of the component? do you know if the component is functional? My first guess just based on the package is that it is a capacitor. If you can't find the exact component, you might be able to find a suitable alternative based on any measurements you can take.

It could be some industrial symbol for something with contacts, e.g.,

Maybe some sort of relay with a heating element?

The usual US symbol for capacitors (industrial) is:

I think it is sitting across the power line.
It probably is a "X Capacitor". Probably has 120 or 240vac printed on it.
Might have a resistor and capacitor inside.
They do blow up some times.

From the symbol, it looks a suppressor, a capacitor in series with a resistor. If it is across the power input it is there stop interference so removing it won't stop the thing working but might lead to it interfering with something.
