    Kind of late but that is a overload. ITs a bimetalic strip that heats up and breaks contact.

    yup...commonly referred to as a 'klixon'....used to protect the motor from overloads. Capacitor on a single phase motor as shown would be either a long black cylinder shaped thing rated in MFDs..or...metal can, probably oval shaped, usually mounted on the outside of the motor.
    By the way, the bearing behind the motor switch should be checked....
