Two cables wired together

Common Electrical FaultsThe image on the left shows two cables that had been wired together and secured by insulation tape. If this type of dangerous DIY repair were to cause a fire, serious injury or even death the chances are that any insurance policy would be invalid and serious legal consequences would follow. This appliance required a new length of mains cable fitting and was then safe to use.
