SOURCE: Rowenta model dm 860 loose power cord

Most high end appliances (like Rowenta Irons) are made so repairs like that can be done. I haven't played with that model, but I did replace a cord on my Norelco. The torx screwdrivers you are looking for can be purchased, and are often found at either specialty electronic stores (not the average Radio Shack), automotive stores and quite readily online. They are also known as Torx Security bits or Torx Safety bits. Most appliances are made with those screws to prevent the average person from having a go at trying to fix it, but, if you feel comfortable enough with the electronics (even just to look for a loose connection), the bits are available and usually at a fairly decent price.

How to remove cord on Rowenta DZ2061


Your iron probably has tamper proof outer screws with a center pin...don't be intimidated. First, try to remove the screws with a tiny screwdriver from an eyeglass repair kit. If that doesn't work, get a Torx T-20 nutdriver attachment.

If you have to replace the cord, here's a possible supplier: Smallappliance.com

Screwdriver


it is probably a "tamper-proof' Torx head screw and you will need to get a set of tamper-proof Torx bits. Be certain the tamper-proof Torx bit will fit into a bit holder shaft ssmall enough in diameter to fit into any recessed holes that the screws are currently in.

These are called tamper proof screws and you have to get them from the manufacturer. You have to be an authorized service center to get them. There were too many law suits aganinst the companies so they placed these special screws on the units so the do-it-yourselfers can not open them. I think they just do not want the units repaired and this is their excuse. They would rather have you toss the unit and buy another one. Sorry I can not be of more help.
