removal of the plate to get to the terminals for the cord is tricky so take it to an appliance repair shop and have it done
the replacement cord is of a special type that is heat resistant and is not readily available from the shops
add to all that the unit may not be cost effective to repair
The voltage in Israel is 220 volts. Check the information plate on your iron to see if it will operate on 220 volts. If it will, then you will only need an adapter from the two round pins to a two slot receptacle that you can plug your iron into. If your iron will not use 220 volts then you will need a 220/120 volt transformer with a 1 and one half times larger wattage rating on it than watt rating on your iron. Our iron is 1200 watts. We would need a 2000 watt transformer. On Amazon they cost eighty nine dollars and weigh 29 pounds. And they ship them overseas. Best of Luck
If it is more than 3 years old (no warranty) then you can get it repaired or replaced. The heating coil is broken. The heating coil in the iron cannot be fixed, but must be replaced.
If the iron is less than 3 years old, you can get it repaired under warranty; however, shipping and other costs may not be worth having it repaired. (More than $30).
If you can get an estimate, you might want to have it repaired.
You were unclear if the faceplate is on the steam generator or the iron. Anyway the repair center for Rowenta above should help you. Be prepared to pay for shipping, get a firm estimate and insist on old parts be returned with the repaired unit. If it is the soleplate assy, it is around $75 or so.
i did some research for you and i found out the main web for Rowenta Usa and they do provide spare part as well.
You can also send the iron to a repair center near to you if under the warranty at no cost.
This is the information i got from them http://www.rowentausa.com/rowenta/frame.aspx
We had the same problem and we fixed it by taking off the handle section and putting in a new spring (it looks like a little pin actually). We tried it because we were not in the US anymore and didn't mind breaking it so do this at your own risk. It did work though. When (if) you open it up you'll see how flimsy the pin is. Its hardly surprising. Go lightly wit the button after this.
