Depends on warranty stipulations, mainly, and finding someone who knows how to do it. Doesn't hurt to ask if the appliance guy can do the job.

My gravity feed iron won't turn on.

Your brand new iron probably is defective. Funny how no one wants to have anything to do with repair or replace. You may have to get another iron that that works.

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.

The cord has a sort. how do I find a replacement

When you say short, it means to most people that you have intermittant connection in the cord, and one would say, replace it with the same or better type cord. If you are good at soldering, wire splicing and crimping, it should be fairly easy to separate the base using Security Torx Bits (i.e. tamper resistant screws are used), and a bit of judicious patience. Once appart, if they use crimped or solder connections you can cut, splice and crimp as needed. Your cord will be a bit shorter and you will have to reindex the strain relief service loop, but it should be painless. If you are not confident working with UL listed safe equipment (your loved ones will be using this appliance) you can get it serviced here:

The cord gets hot

You have a short somewhere in the cord. As this is a risk for fire, the Iron should either be taken for repair or replaced.

Rowenta model dm 860 loose power cord

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.
