Question about Black & Decker Classic Metal APP F63D Iron
Cord shorted out exactly two days after the warranty expired and store would not take it back. How do I exchange the cord myself.
There is a security screw in the back of the F63D classic iron. It must be removed to get the back plate off. I haven't found the right tool yet myself, though it was suggested it is a "security" Torx.

The back comes straight off. All you need to do is take a small screwdriver and pry against the bottom metal piece, then it should start to come off. Make sure you take it off carefully so as not to break anything. Pry evenly all around the plastic end cap until it comes off.
After that, you can replace the cord. It's connected via two crimp caps. Easy to replace. Just make SURE you purchase a cord rated for an iron.. DO NOT clip the plug end from an extension cord or similar and use it. The iron uses 16 gauge HEATER CORD. Easy to find, but you could melt your power cord and possibly cause a fire if you don't replace it with the correct type.
