Ditto with not messing with it! Just wrap up the cord the old fashioned way and place it between the iron and handle when storing ;-)

You need to replace the spring.

Try loosening the small screw under the handle as this will work on some irons.

I would suggest you Google the company name and find their web site.


Find contact information and send question/problem to them.
You may need your model number.
If a part is needed, it may be expensive.

If you find a way to loosen the cord it may be less expensive to just use it like the 'old fashion' iron and wrap the cord when not in use.

Here's how I fixed it.
1. Pull the cord however far you like.
2. Push (don't use the button) the cord into the iron. The wrapped cord within the iron should loosen a bit.
Repeat steps one and two extremely quickly; then pull the cord all the way and hope your problem is solved.
