Question about Irons
Read your post and would like to see the pictures.
I can get the part I need, auto shut off for my DE 635, but there is a screw holding the front of the sole plate which I domn't want to break...as you seem to have done. They probably use similar construction on all their models.
I had a similar problem, my wife dropped the iron and it started leaking from somewhere inside even when the iron was not in use. I used this article to help me figure out how to take the iron apart and then found that there was a rubber seal that runs around the water chamber. I took a jewelers size screwdriver and used this to reshape the rubber seal that goes around the base of the water chamber... It stopped the drip and the iron works great now... thanks.

I have submittted the photos to one of the expert gurus on fixya and I cannot remember his name. If I remember correctly it is not a screw but a plastic pin (3) that sticks up fom the plate and is secured by a circular disc with fingers in the center that push up when they slide it on and one must open these fingers up, unuslly one will do so it will release. If you try to force it off it will/may snap off the pin. If some one can help you, you might want to get two of those $1.00 screwdriver kits and have one person, or a vise, hold the iron and the two of you slide the small flat screwdrives under the fingers and pry up together, if you can get to it. Remember the one I had was glued together with minimal screws throughout.I have never seen an appliance so difficult to access for the simplest repair. Good luck and God Bless.
