This is a shower isolator that I came across that was put in via a DIY job. It needed its own folder to house all the associated images. Some images have their own commentary. But the crux of the failure were loose screw terminations on the wires in the isolator switch. Combined with a poor earth loop impedance preventing the supplying breaker from blowing (wrong cable / breaker sizing) and a faulty RCD not disconnecting the supply during the earth stages of the fault. I honestly do not know why the there was not a major fire from this failure.
