    looks like electrolytic cap, but one line should be not solid (not filled with colour) or could be one spark gap

    Sir Jestine
    the question which you have given for us is unique and googlable.

    the above symbol shows two directions as from my knowledge.

    1. Variable Capacitor / Gang Capacitor.
    2. Same with Fuse symbol

    thanks you

      Hi Tahir,

      This is a varistor symbol. If NC it will just print N.C and it does not have a symbol.
