Repair of Steam Iron
Hi, honestly if there is a short circuit to ground and you are trying to troubleshoot this, I would not advise you doing this (I do electronic tech/engineering everyday) and am uncomfortable doing it, as it is a shock hazard to continue using the device, especially if significant others are using the appliance. Unless I am SURE I can fix the problem AND I know how to test for circuit isolation as recommended by UL, CE and other safety governing bodies...i.e. "Know about HI POT and Leakage Testing techniques."
That said, since you have already dismantled and accessed the "guts", there is probably a fastener or moulded retainer you missed. Probably a good idea to try and locate a schematic or reverse engineer it, making sure you draw lots of assembly and disassembly diagrams as you go if you are so inclined
