Sure enough, 3 of the cans are swollen and corroded. I have since learned from the user that this iMac suffered a power surge from a near-by lightning hit in her neighborhood.

Take the back cover off the machine and examine the 24 cans (capacitors) for swelling and/or corrosion. This does not sound like an inverter issue.
