RE: Odd hum issue - suggestions ??

"The neutral to ground lug on the chassis was also enamelled, so cleaned that off. No improvement in the hum. I then ran a jumper wire between the the neutral bus of a large capacitor pair directly to the ground lug - hum gone."

I strongly suggest that you use a multimeter or other tester (or call an electrician) to be sure the Neutral and Ground wire at your AC outlet are correctly wired.
