Most themal overload circuits are automatic now. If there is no button, then it will reset automatically once cooled.

I’ve never seen an automatically resetting overload (ie: Klixon) on a table saw motor – as it would be a safety hazard. The last thing you want is for a table saw motor to just start by itself after an overload, which is why they require a manual reset. Same reason for using magnetic power switches – to prevent the saw from restarting unexpectedly after a power fail.
