SOURCE: On my Black & Decker

I wish I could tell you where the screw is, but I can tell you this- it's going to be tricky, as you know.
Black & Decker makes these units as unserviceable as they can, probably because they don't want any lawsuits from people tampering with 220 live, nasty volts. Sometimes they use special tools, and manufacturing processes that makes it virtually impossible to disassemble a unit without damage- clearly indicating attempted repairs, and destroying the iron in the process, making it unusable.
The short and simple of it is that they're made as throwaways, and even if you can get to the potentiometer, you're going to find a broken support or switch piece most likely, and won't be able to get a replacement part (you can try to google parts for irons, but will only get the whole iron).
Wish I had better news, but I've been through this years ago, and ended up breaking the iron in the process of getting it open, and I doubt it's gotten any easier over the years.
My advice is to see if you can, hopefully, get it open as far as you can, and see if you can somehow free the jammed arm. Otherwise, buy a good used or new one.
Wish I had better news, but good luck.

I think I have the solution now! 
 
First of all, remove the temperature knob. Than remove the temperature indicator (it's like a little disc). Theres a hidden screw under the temperature indicator! Remove that screw and continue with your fixes.

I hope it could help you.

Sometimes you can gently pry it open if you can't see any more screws.

Iron leaking and plate dirty


If you have hard water, there will be a buildup of minerals where the rubber gasket on the water tank meets the steam chamber that is built into the sole plate. This will make the rubber gasket surface become hard and no longer seak to the team chamber, resulting in water leaking from the tank onto the outside of the iron.

If you are reasonably skilled with tools and have a Torx T20 driver, you can disassemble the iron and remove the rubber gasket between the tank and the steam chamber and soak it in vinegar to remove the mineral scale. First remove the three Torx screws visible at the rear of the iron and gently pry off the gray rear cover plate. This will expose two screws holding the rear end of the sole plate. Remove those two screws. Then gently pry off the stainless steel nose piece on the front of the iron; this is the curved piece that says "high precision" on it. This will then expose the screw that holds the front of the sole plate on the handle. Remove thqt screw. Pull the black connector at the rear of the iron off the two rods to which it is attached, and you can move the sole plate away from the handle. The rubber piece in the handle that is sort of oval shaped and about 2 inches long is the gasket that is probably causing the leak. Gently remove it and soak it in vinegar to remove the scale, and remove the scle from the round hole where it meets the steam chamber in the sole plate. .When they are clean, reassemble the gasket onto the handle and the sole plate onto the handle, connecting the electrical connections, and replace the screws, It is not simple, but it is doable.

I want to repair myself


There is a security screw in the back of the F63D classic iron. It must be removed to get the back plate off. I haven't found the right tool yet myself, though it was suggested it is a "security" Torx.

Melted material on face of iron


Yes- I had the same problem and could not clean it off. It was a plastic sticker that melted on the iron plate- placed there by the manufacturer. I called Customer Service at Black and Decker, and after all their solutions failed- they sent me a new iron. But this one leaks water terribly to the point where the clothes are soaked after only 1 or 2 articles are ironed! I am beginning to lose faith in Black and Decker products.
