SOURCE: 4268 iron leaving residue
This will probably just need de-scaling. Buy some descaler and there should be instructions on the packet of how to de-scale an iron. Usually by warming the iron slightly, switching off, emptying out the water and then adding the diluted de-scaler to the iron and leaving it in an almost horizontal but raised position in a bowl or something so that some of the de-scaler will drain through. Then emptying out, re-filling with water and then iron something that you don't mind getting marked while any residue get's flushed out.

I just took apart a Sunbeam iron. This is how it disassembles:
first remove the screw at the base. Next remove the moisture dial top (it should just pop off). This allows the iron to slide apart - the metal base from the top. It should slide about an inch then lift off.
My iron didn't get hot, and what I found is the gear that attaches the temp setting to the electrical was missing a tooth. Perhaps you could set the gear to permanently "ON". In my case I found out with brute force how the iron is supposed to disassemble... time for a new iron...
