So when you close the synth the new AC socket hinges into contact with the heat sink? Was the heat shrink tubing on the AC wiring there when the problem occured or was it added afterwards?

I can't tell from these pics how bad the mechanical interference is, but any contact between the AC wiring and the heat sink is a safety issue. The insulation of the AC wiring must not touch the heat 
sink. You don't want any possibility of the insulation getting damaged due to vibration, friction, or heat. The wiring must be dressed so this can't happen.

Obviously the plug can't be easily moved. Can the power supply PCB move forward and to the left?

I'd be tempted to add a hard insulated covering over the back of the socket.

Or switch to this type of socket which has a low profile on the inside of the panel:

Switchcraft EAC323.
