    Oh dear. Not good.
    I have some heavy duty power cord here if you want to try again. (Some numpty managed to cut an extension cord at work. Plugs were moulded on, so one end has a socket - the plug end is in use)

    I cannot see what the problem is. The important plastic bits that hold the pins is not melted yet.
