In replacing the cord, you have to remove the screw that holds the back cover and unscrew the damaged cord from the heater terminal. Insert the new cord on the rubber insulator and screw it to the heater terminal.
It is probably a loose screw (if you shake the iron, you may hear it rattle).. The iron is most likely good, just needs a 5 minute repair.
If you want to do it, or find someone to do it:
1. UNPLUG the iron.
2. remove the 4 screws from the back end of the iron.
3. Open the back plastic plate.
4. There will be a wire with a loose screw; tighten it.
5. There may be a broken wire near the screw; if so, remove the eyelet that is on the screw. put the screw back on and wrap the broken wire end onto the screw and tighten.
6. Replace the back plate.
7. Plug back in and use for a few more years.
