I just took apart a Sunbeam iron. This is how it disassembles:
first remove the screw at the base. Next remove the moisture dial top (it should just pop off). This allows the iron to slide apart - the metal base from the top. It should slide about an inch then lift off.

My iron didn't get hot, and what I found is the gear that attaches the temp setting to the electrical was missing a tooth. Perhaps you could set the gear to permanently "ON". In my case I found out with brute force how the iron is supposed to disassemble... time for a new iron...

I recently had a problem with the steam button. It somehow during normal use came off its track in the handle and was stuck down in the "slot". After several searches online and this site i tried a knife along all the edges trying to figure out how to disassemble the iron. Well one quick flick with my knife to the side of the steam button and it came out. Well the surprise was the screw under these buttons. Hopefully this can help someone looking to disassemble the iron when they have problems.

My iron leaks when I fill it past the fill line, so make sure you're filling it only to the fill line.
