The bottom photo seems to show dark char-like coloring on the bottom side of both hubs. Is that just
the light in the room? If not, that and the dark spot on the housing indicate some sort of heat
problem, in which case all bets are off. The tape looks like it had a bad life, so I'd put my money
on it not being a common problem. Good you were able to transfer part of it.
