Question about Rowenta Irons
I have a Rowenta Luxe model DM 860. The power intermittently turns on and off when moving the power cable around. Can the power cord be replaced? There are two Torx screws on the bottom but the have a bump in the middle that prevents normal Torx screwdrivers from opening it. Can the power cord be replaced and/or is there an easy way to remove the bottom cover of the iron so I can see what is going on with the power cable? Do I need specialized Torx screwdrivers to get the cover off, and if so any idea where I can buy them?
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.
