Electrical issues with UD-CA1

Firstly may I say I am a huge fan of your products. However I am in hot water with my wife due to a burning smell which became noticeable in my home office a few days ago. I was unable to accurately pinpoint the source and then earlier this evening, I heard a loud bang from upstairs (where my office is located) and the electricals in part of the house short circuited.
When I flipped the fuse switch, my wife - who I asked to stand in the office to monitor - saw the UD-CA1 spark up with another bang and was as such identified by her as the culprit, releasing a torrent of commentary about how too many cables were attached to it.
I am not sure what has gone wrong as the device has served me well until now. I am now left without a hub and unable to drive my external monitor / MacBook 2015 and printer / other peripherals and too fearful to plug it into the mains again. Can you please advise. Thank you.
Best regards.
