Plastic shielding on one of the live input leads has cracked near contact point with transformer, creating exposed wire. It is not possible to patch, nor is it safe to use.
Transformer was installed in project box earlier this year and worked without issue. In total, the transformer saw roughly 30 hours of use. I discovered the crack whilst moving the components to another box. I did not exert undue strain on the wire leads during handling.
It seems the leads are not malleable enough to withstand even moderate manipulation.
