I suspect it's a thermal fuse and what it came out of isn't working?
If I've guessed correctly the thing that doesn't work overheated ;-)

Its an over temp. safety cut off switch. You should be able to get one from RS components or a good Electrical wholesaler

Bi-metallic thermostat. Will carry up to 16 amps and opens at 85 degrees centigrade. Safety device to prevent over heating. They normally close when cooled down again but easily tested with a meter and a boiling kettle or pan.

thanks everyone
makes sense what your telling me
one of the terminals looks to have overheated and come lose tried to solder it back
looks like a bad contact and caused the wire to overheated and become corroded




need to buy a new one thanks Geoff

CPC is a good price to get this sort of thing:

Hard not to find the 5 worth of parts you need to buy for free postage.
