PC built and worked successfully for a month.

 

Unused for 6 weeks

 

Turned on again, but tripped the house circuit.

 

Won't turn on.

 

Plug point works and power cable works on other devices.

 

Alternate power cable will not work for PC.

 

Any help in diagnosing issue and solution would be very much appreciated :)

The switch is the right way

 

I don't really understand how an issue could have occurred without usage. Is there something that I did wrong?

You probably didn't do anything wrong or you did...

 

But check the front panel connectors to the mother board 

 

Also system spec please

What power supply you have? Just the fact that it caused the breaker to flip is worrying. If your power supply went it might have taken everything else with it. try a diff one.

Okay, I understand that there is a problem with the PSU, is it something that I have caused? Is there something that I should do at this point?

the only way it can trip the circruit breaker (if you are not talking about the RCD) if it uses to many amps. which is likely due to a short so yeah if the PSU was set to 230 and should be 110v or the other way around (i only think old PSU have that switch) 
or just a  damaged PSU.

Have I done anything wrong? The PC functioned perfectly previously, nothing was touched between uses. What should I do from here?

Other items work through this outlet that I used, so I assume there is no issue with it.  

 

I have not tried the PC on a different outlet though

Probably won't change anything 

I would try a new psu

After double checking all connection

properly not. but a bump or something could cause, dust can also make it short out in rare cases
but i would believe it just a bad PSU you recieved

This is my guess also, it was literally not even touched for the 6 weeks, I don't know if dust could be an issue in this scenario. I have contacted product returns support for the PSU, and hope that they are able to assist. Thank you for your input :)
