Please let me know the make and model of the iron. We have a Delonghi Pro300 and I fashioned an opener out of a 2 inch pvc t that I purchased at Lowes. It allows my wife to open the steam reservoir with no problem.

check the connection. Most probable the heater connections are rusted due to water seepage or melted due to overheating.. If you can dismantle and check the connection.

Why does cord on steam iron always twist any help suggestions ? What is the little thing for on the cord ?

The cord twists constantly because it is the wrong type for the intended use.

The little thing on the iron end of the cord prevents twisting at the point where it enters the iron.

I tried to bring the inferior thread up after put in the bobbin but the needle do not pick up and stopping me for sewing

Is the bobbin put in right? Make sure the thread is coming off the bobbin in a counter-clockwise direction. Also make sure you're leaving enough thread coming off the bobbin for the top thread to grab hold of to pull up.

My rowenta steamer is not producing steam but tubing getting hot when I turn on steamer. Suggestions?

see this causes and fix it. God bless you

If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents (see below) and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .

If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical cord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat .

If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle.

If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.

If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the soleplate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the soleplate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water.

Conair steamer leaks water and wets my clothes.

When I use mine I hang the hand held part from my closet door, while I am waiting for it to heat up. When the hose gets too much condensation, from the steam, it leaks out... This will also happen if you try to use in the motion of an iron. The hand held part needs to be at a vertical position at all time to prevent leaking.

When using steam iron i am left with a puddle of water on the floor how do i control the amount of steam

I think is maybe the hose connections. You need to make sure both ends (by the T-nozzle and by the body of the steamer) are secure. You have to align the nozzle with the rod, and push down, and twist. Try watching instructions for connecting both ends on under appliances category. There are GS4 video instructions and GS10 (this one has just been posted yesterday)
hoe it helps. Otherwise I would return the steamer. Nowhere in the operating instructions does it say that you can control the amount of stream produced...

Drain screw

He, if the repair was done within their warranty period, try calling their service department. It should be covered...beyond that, I would say that someone either overtightened or cross threaded the drain screw. You might warm up (but not fully presurize) and see if you can loosen it 1/4 turn counter clockwise (no further) and let it cool before removing.
