They are called TORX screws. You need a torx set of drivers.

I have a Conair Instant Heat curling iron. It does not heat. I am guessing the problem is with the power cord. How do I remove the end cap so I can test the power cord?


Based on a Safety protocol like the liability statement for product safety there are different screws used based by brand and on a marketing technical decision but most screws to fit are u-type (VORK) screws on irons .
With some special type screwdriver or different screwbits types they are to order by most specialized car shops or by onlineshops on internet.

How can I get my steamer to work again? Orange light comes on but nothing else


Make sure you didn't knock off a wire to the heating element when you had it open. Also put a couple of cups of whitevinnegar in it and leave it for an hour or two. This will dissolve the scale build up. If it doesn't get hot thenthe element is probably burned out. There is a limit switch held against the tank too. It can stop the heating element if it goes bad.

When I plugged iron in sparks came out at wall and iron where the cord connects.


Hi,

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

Bring the iron to a Hardware store, ask for a set of tools right for the type of screws (maybe Torx, Security Torx, tri-wing, bristol and others).

Once you can open the iron and access to the cord you may change the power cord. it is easy.

Power goes on & off because the power cord is broken. This failure is very common on irons.

Good luck

No power from cord. I want to replace the cord.


In replacing the cord, you have to remove the screw that holds the back cover and unscrew the damaged cord from the heater terminal. Insert the new cord on the rubber insulator and screw it to the heater terminal.

Rowenta Iron-Professional Luxe The power cord seems to short out when you move iron. You can wiggle it next to the movable ball and it clicks on and off. The two screw heads on bottom appear to be special...


I drilled out the nubs in the center of the screws. removed the screws, and took off the back plate. The problem is that the cord seems to be abraiding when it swivels, and eventually wears thru. It seems like a fire hazard and should be looked into by Rowena. Anyway, I cut out the damaged cord and reattached it. Problem fixed..

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.

Power Cord


Manufacturers are getting more and more clever about hiding screws which allow covers to be removed. Probably has to do with product liability.

Anyway, look for a brand or settings insignia that can be removed - like a thin aluminum plate. Screws are sometimes hidden underneath. If the cover is a gauge for a control, be very careful not to damage it when you remove it. You will want to put it back.
