I read that clause effectively as "if a component fails, your insurance doesn't cover the replacement of that component." Without that wording, your insurance would double as a pretty effective warranty.

Your insurance effectively covers you for damage caused by accident or fire. How the accident occurred or how the fire started should not be relevant unless foul play is suspected.
