When they wave soldered the board in production, the time duration, or temperature was too low, thus the solder at the higher thermal mass items was too thin and blew open on a power overload. If you did a good job re-soldering, this will not happen again, but it is a good idea to use a 1000 joule Belkin surge protector in the wall outlet available at Amazon.
