To get the base off, you have to remove the 2 screws from the face.
the button for the reel has a screw behind it, that needs to be removed.

Take a thin piece of metal, like a spark plug gapper, and slide it in the side to push back the tabs. You have to do it on each side. Remove button and take out screw. The base will come off.

Now you need a special torx srewdriver that allows for the center of the screw to enter the screwdriver.......

Learned the hardway and didn't have the correct torx..... Good Luck

Here is some pictures of rowenta DX880 I took apart in stages. Remove the torx security Screws at the back.To remove handle pry at the back; front spray assembly pry at the bottom (see pics). The Rowenta was actually desigen for taking apart unlike some products which are glued. The rest should be intuitive and take your time.Taking a Rowenta DX1900 Apart - _175.jpg_176.jpg_179.jpgTaking a Rowenta DX1900 Apart - _181.jpg_180.jpg_181.jpg

Not sure about your model, but newer irons have the screws hidden under snap-on covers. Look for a small cover that may have a slot where you can insert a small screwdriver and lightly pry. Chances are you'll leave marks. They are not made to take apart so there is also a chance you'll break the internal tabs that snap/hold it together. You may be able to super glue them back. There should be a removable coverplate at, or near each end.

Sounds as if the cable may be damaged or a loose connection. May be cheaper to buy a new one from wallmart or similar store.
