How to remove cord on Rowenta DZ2061

Your iron probably has tamper proof outer screws with a center pin...don't be intimidated. First, try to remove the screws with a tiny screwdriver from an eyeglass repair kit. If that doesn't work, get a Torx T-20 nutdriver attachment.

If you have to replace the cord, here's a possible supplier:

Screw on back of iron is loose. standard allen wrench doesn't fit.

Probably what they call a torx head. If it has a tip in the center then it will be a security torx head. sets of torx head wrenches or screwdriver type are readily available.

Rowenta model dm 860 loose power cord

Most high end appliances (like Rowenta Irons) are made so repairs like that can be done. I haven't played with that model, but I did replace a cord on my Norelco. The torx screwdrivers you are looking for can be purchased, and are often found at either specialty electronic stores (not the average Radio Shack), automotive stores and quite readily online. They are also known as Torx Security bits or Torx Safety bits. Most appliances are made with those screws to prevent the average person from having a go at trying to fix it, but, if you feel comfortable enough with the electronics (even just to look for a loose connection), the bits are available and usually at a fairly decent price.

it is probably a "tamper-proof' Torx head screw and you will need to get a set of tamper-proof Torx bits. Be certain the tamper-proof Torx bit will fit into a bit holder shaft ssmall enough in diameter to fit into any recessed holes that the screws are currently in.

Rowenta Iron Problems

Rowenta has an auto shutoff feature if the iron is not used for awhile. They use multi-point security Torx head screws that require the appropriate set of bits/driver kit that may be obtained at your local Kragen's or Harbor Freight tools to access the position/timer switch mechanism. Open it carefully so you can see if the switch is somehow mechanically mispositioned or sticking. You may also want to store the iron, cool and reservoir empty in the normal upright position.

Taking a Rowenta DX1900 Apart

To get the base off, you have to remove the 2 screws from the face.
the button for the reel has a screw behind it, that needs to be removed.

Take a thin piece of metal, like a spark plug gapper, and slide it in the side to push back the tabs. You have to do it on each side. Remove button and take out screw. The base will come off.

Now you need a special torx srewdriver that allows for the center of the screw to enter the screwdriver.......

Learned the hardway and didn't have the correct torx..... Good Luck
