Remove the back plate where the cord attaches to the iron... there are 4 screws visible and another 2 screws hidden under the two rubber feet...These are joined together by a rubber strip and can be removed by prying up and out with a small pry.... once the cover is removed you will see where to take the old cord off and replace it with a new one..

How do I replace the cord on my steam iron?


You can buy replacement cords and ends at any decent hardware store to make your own cord. However you need to disassemble your iron to make the change. I would only recommend trying this if you are familiar with doing such a task, you wouldn't want to risk a misfire and causing a fire.

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

Iron does not cut on I believe i need a new cord. i live in Buffalo NY. any suggerstions for repair?


Before this is confirmed please have the continuity of the cord checked , Only if the cord is open at the ends from the plug point to the iron terminals must you change the cord. If there is no continuity to the coils then the coil or the thermostat is open.
This can be checked easily with a multimeter.

you have to check the cable you can use multi tester in ohm position to make sure the connection no problem, and turn the adjustment temperature and watch on multitester the resistance will change if nothing happen you have to change cord with new one.
