When I plugged iron in sparks came out at wall and iron where the cord connects.


If you've had this iron for a while it sounds like the cord may be frayed.
switch it off at the wall and unplug it, check the cord for wear, if the insulation is frayed, torn or broken and there are black burn marks on the cord where you saw sparks then the cord needs to be replaced.
DONT plug the iron back in until the cord is replaced.

Otherwise If there are no breaks or black burn marks on the cord, then your power point may be faulty and needs to be replaced!

I hope this was helpful

I have a B&D 2030 steam iron which I really like, but recently it isn't always turning on when plugged in. I think there may be a short in the cord somewhere, possibly the plug?? It seems to work...

Likely the wire inside the cord is broken from lots of use. You can usually tell where by turning the iron on while plugged in and bending the cord. You will hear a spark when you bend the spot with the break. It isn't very difficult to replace the cord with a new one.

Iron shorted out, sparks and blew a circuit breaker in room

Depends on where the sparks came from. If it was from the cord then yes, fix the cord. If it came from inside the iron then, maybe. You would have to open iron and see what caused it. If you are and electrician or technician then you could measure resistance and find problem.

Iron cuts off in the middle of ironing

It is probably an intermittent cord connection next to the strain relief. You can simply remove the back cover, cut the cord, pull the remaining cord (approx 6-8") and reconnect it. You can also order part # RS-DE 245954 the whole cord assembly including the circuit board for about $25.

It suddenly quits...i have to juggle the line cord to have a power.

Sounds like a loose connection from the screws inside the housing of the iron. It is a wee bit of a bugger to get INTO this iron, but with a little patience, and a screwdriver (phillips, the + one) you should be able to get to where the power cord connects to the terminals inside the iron. Loosen, and retighten the connection. If the wire seems 'worn', you may have to cut it back a bit and score off some of the plastic, and re-wire.

Cord burst into flames / daughter almost electrocuted

As with any appliance, they should be checked on a regular basis. Quite often the cord becomes damaged where the insulation becomes worn with the constant movement and friction against the iron and board. The copper strands must have sheared inside the cord causing a spark to ignite the rubber. she did have a lucky escape. I expect the water came out when she dropped the iron
