My Black & Decker D2030 Iron fell on the floor and it is leaking water from the tank - can it be repaired?


if the crack is visible and isn't on a part that gets heated then super glue will work 4 you , plus if you cant access the crack a separate 99 cent squirt bottle kept handy will still allow you to use the iron ,just squirt and swipe the iron across the surface ,steam will be made if irons hot enough

Replace chord support sleeve


I think you need to open the back and disconnect the two wires inside. Actually I am looking for that cord sleeve. Where did you find it. I've found a complete assembly for this (Rowenta RS-DX002754)
which is available on line, but all I need is the sleeve.
Good Luck

How to repair aan electrical iron


Hi,

If the iron doesn't heat, make sure power is on to the outlet, check the electrical chord, and check the thermostat and replace if necessary.

If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .
If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical chord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat.
If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle.
If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.
If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the sole plate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the sole plate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water.

The tools you will need are

  • Screwdrivers
  • Toothpicks or pipe cleaners
  • Sewing needle
  • Commercial electric iron cleaning solution or vinegar and water
  • Commercial sole plate cleaner or baking soda and water
  • Steel wool
  • Emery cloth
Please rate my solution.

The iron will not produce steam.


There are several thermal sensors around the tank, did you make sure they were not damaged or bent...they are "bi-metallic" strips, meaning they are two disimilar pieces designed to have different thermal expansion rates so at certain temp they separate (open) or move together (close) telling the control logic board to enable heater. Do make sure you did not bend them or over torque them when reattaching to their respective attachment points.

The electrical cord is seperating from the base of the iron and exposing the cord. The plastic covering is in parts. Can this be repaired?


You can repair this yourself but you will have to take the handle apart to access the power cord inside the handle. Just pull the cord inside and wrap with electrical tape to hold in place. Hope this helps

The cord is worn out where it connects to the iron and sparks flew when using most recently...


you have a broken wire. unplug the iron, you should be able to remove the cover. you can repair the wiring or replace the chord.
