On the topic of capacitor mounting, look out for PCB mounted caps that are glued to the board. The glue is usually yellowish and can darken with age. Over time the glue often becomes conductive and/or corrosive. I have had to replace many in both professional and domestic equipment, look out for it!
I have not found this problem with hot melt.

Remember when mounting large caps with high ripple currents, give them room to cool. For every 10 degrees C the caps life is halved.
