    Rowenta Proffessional DX8800 Iron - approx. 2 years old - apparently a short in the cord - iron end.



    Have taken no steps to resolve problem. Can you tell me where to take to have it fixed? Is it worth fixing?

    MY de-336 has a short in the cord. I do not have a tool to take it apart and repair it. The iron cuts on and off as I use it

I have a Rowenta Professional Titan Plus, Model DE-821 steam iron. The bottom plate is loose and nearly falling off. I bought the appropriate screw at the hardware store and removed the bottom screw. How do I dissemble the iron from there? Anyone know? thanks.

I have a DX9800 so the screws might be different, but a Torx T-20 regular tip takes out the two screws on the base, it takes a security t-20 torx tip to remove the screw in the base, hope this helps.

Old school Swiss Army knife like MacGyver used. The "can opener attachment with the flat head on the tip is a perfect fit!

    After you take the two screws on the bottom out, take a small flat-head and pry the bottom plate off. The short is probably somewhere in the bend from flexing. Cut the wires inside the iron base, leaving enough slack to splice with a wire nut. Loosen the cord crimper and pull the wire through (making cord shorter on plug end) until you can cut past the break in the wire. Splice with wire nuts and reassemble. Now pat yourself on the back for saving $100 on a new iron!

How to remove cord on Rowenta DZ2061

Your iron probably has tamper proof outer screws with a center pin...don't be intimidated. First, try to remove the screws with a tiny screwdriver from an eyeglass repair kit. If that doesn't work, get a Torx T-20 nutdriver attachment.

If you have to replace the cord, here's a possible supplier: Smallappliance.com

My Rowenta Power Glide DE-08 iron has stopped working. Once, if I moved the cord around it worked. So I I took it apart and checked the wiring connection which seemed to be tight. I then plugged it in...

hi.

you will probably find that the cable is broken where it comes out of the iron.
this is not an unusual problem as the wire is being constantly bent and straightened here, and eventually breaks.

take the iron apart as you did before to check the connections, and cut of the last 4-5 inches of the cable and reconnect in exactly the same way it is now.
this should cure the problem.

hope this helps

My rowena precision steam iron steam does not work

Solution for me:
I just bought a Rowenta Precision for $5.95 at Goodwill. I brought it home and it didn't work
I read about the cords and weird size screwdriver needed. It sounds like a lot of work. So what I did was push the electrical cord into the iron. it didn't seem to move but must have. The iron works perfectly now. Such a deal!
