Steam Cleaner Electronics Identification

Hey, all.

New to the forum. Looks like the kind of place actually worthy of the Internet. But, on to business...
I'm repairing a Bissell Powerforce Powerbrush "Floor Finishing Machine," Model 2089 for my mom. I've tracked the problem (for now) to a small black component mounted on the main motor housing. The component has four (4) terminals, two of which are wired to the floor brush motor, one of which broke off (photos attached). The component has what I assume is a manufacturer symbol on the side, and the following: BR610 1747
I'm having a heck of a time finding info on this part -- most steam cleaner info doesn't seem to go that deep, and, without knowing what the component is, I can't run a proper search. So, I'm bringing it to you all: Does anyone know what this component is?

Main motor housing is white. Floor brush motor at bottom left.

Square, black component is the mystery.

Welcome to the forums.

That is called a bridge rectifier. It's four diodes in a single package. it converts AC to DC.
That is a BR-610 6A 1000v bridge rectifier.

You can search the part number and find it in many location.
You can go larger amperage and voltage..... just not lower.
Three listings below.....

part at ebay
BR-610 at Mouser
acceptable sub at amazon
