I had an ecg yesterday for a job and the graph looked really odd

I had an ecg yesterday for a job I'm applying for and the v6 line at the bottom right went on a steep incline cutting through the 2 lines above it and off the graph, all other readings were normal, is this likely to be a fault on the machine?

Yes. It is a artifact due to a loose lead
