That might have damaged the capacitors causing a short in them. This then would have been enough for it to over heat and explode when it was connected the right way round for a little time.
In over 40 years I have not known a capacitor explode for no reason, it is more likely you damaged it than it was faulty to begin with.

Thanks for your help.
