Most likely induced vibration caused solder pad fracturing at one or both large toroidal inductors perpendicular to and close to the heat sink. You should also carefully insert fish paper insulators between these coils and nearby bare metal parts to prevent arcing when the laquer insulation wears (also due to vibration).

Be careful to discharge the 2 main electrolytic capacitors on the power supply circuit board prior to doing any soldering or instant component destruction may result.
