Possibly a variable resistor (a thing with a knob that turns), although it's not one of the usually accepted symbols for this device. It may be just a representation of the component. In this case, turning the knob alters the speed of the motor (M).

That looks like a "Pot Speed control" often used on electric fork lifts it has a slot on top for a small flat tip screw driver the 'Pot " gets its name from the design as it looks like a lil pot . in side there is lil contacts much like that on an oll 60 model head light switch as it is turned up more speed / light and down less.
