Considering the upcoming projects I must be very careful after reading this thread.
Being cautious as I am and having the experience of a few messy explosions in the past, I have been very lucky these last several years.
It is not the BANG or the SMELL that is so bad, it's cleaning up the mess....  :palm:

Indeed, don't know why people want to use the cheap shenzen-market (CQC) parts, especially for replacement of line-filter X & Y caps in quality equipment.

Here in Europe you can buy the Panasonic/Matsushita-parts @ Conrad & Reichelt (or Mouser/Digikey), also you could look for the modern 'red' WIMA-X2 & Y2 caps (Germany made) if you search for the right partnumber chosen from the datasheet > that's just my way of working.  ;)
I will attach the datasheets of the parts I use for this application:
