What is electronic component is attached to motor?

Hello, I wondering, what is the thing with WZ3G marking on it, attached to terminals of AWD motor?

Obviously this is not capacitor, as a power goes through it.

I am asking, because I have not such thing on mine AWD, and I wondering is it bad or not?

I've seen it referred to as a "polyswitch", that apparently acts as some kind of resettable fuse to keep the motor from damaging the board.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but that's my understanding.

Yep, looks, you are right. I investigated further and found the same answer.

Its kinda multi acting fuse. Which terminate the chain if overheated for a while.

Now I am thinking, shall I buy and put one to my awd or not. I would admit that motor get pretty hot.
