This iron has an auto shut off. Lately when I turn it on and it reaches the right temperature it will automatically shut off WHILE I'M IRONING! I have to turn it off then turn it back on to get it to heat up again but it will shut off again in less than 1 minute. Have you heard of this problem before? and what do I do?
First I called Black and Decker. No help there, just a very condescending man on the other end of the phone who finally put me on hold for more than 10 minutes. I hung up, and went to the store where I purchased the iron and without a receipt they listened to the explanation and exchanged it for the exact same new iron. Now THAT'S customer service.

From the first day, iron shuts itself off while ironing. ... The last 3 have either leaked everywhere or the cord where it joins the iron keeps switching the iron off. ..... from the stainless steal down the right side of the iron and was leaking water all ...
the lights you witness are correct. once the iron has reached tempreture.
ensure the iron is stored in an upright position between ironing items if left laying down the iron may switch off as an anti-burn or fire safety feature as if left unattended. with the iron placed on its back plate with its point facing upwards the iron should stay on.
Check the fuse first ! If the fuse is in good condition , then try this troubleshooting .
1: Make sure there's enough water in the tank if the iron won't steam. Fill
the tank up . 2:Check that the iron is set to a steam setting. Some of the settings are
dry and won't create steam. 3:Set the temperature dial to the shaded setting which represents steam.
You'll see a little dark cloud-type icon with raindrops as opposed to a
white cloud with a stripe through it. The dark cloud represents moisture
(steam), and the white cloud with the stripe through it represents no
steam. 4:Allow the iron to heat up for a while and to emit steam for a couple of
minutes while pressing the extra-long burst button a few times. That
should get rid of any impurities which can cause blockages. Try this if
the iron hasn't been used for a while and steaming is intermittent. 5:Iron horizontally. Steam is only generated when the iron is horizontal. 6:Use the maximum steam setting when the iron is set to its maximum
temperature setting. 7:Let the iron get to a high temperature before expecting steam. If the
soleplate isn't hot enough, the water won't turn to steam and will in
fact drip, spit or leak from the soleplate. Some Rowenta irons have an
anti-drip system, which will turn off the steam when ironing at a low
temperatures. Turn the temperature up, if needed.
Switch light goes on when pressed but goes off if... OR iron does not heat at all even pressing the button to turn it on continually.
Don't understand which one question you are asking
But if there is no heat at all after switching it on, it needs to go to iron heaven but be sure to cut the plug of the end, Saftey reasons at the dump. BUT if lights are coming on the iron is working. the large dial on the water filler is temperature control. Turn this around to cotton or linen.
The light will come on and off while in use, it allows you to know that the iron has cooled and is going back to your select temperature( on the large dial)
Make sure that you use water in the iron as it will aid your ironing and make it quicker. Make sure that the iron temperature dial on the water filler is at the correct temperature for the item that you are ironing.
Hope this helps
The SHARK ELECTRONIC Iron is equipped with an electronic auto-off. The electronic auto-off switches the iron off if it has been left standing unmoved in any position (sideways, flat or upright) for approximately 7-9 minutes. A red light on the LED display panel will flash when the iron switches itself off. (Fig. 7) To switch the iron back on, just shake the iron side-to-side several times.
either the element is faulty or the switch you turned to give the diffrent tempreture has solder, if it is lose then your iron can repair if it is the element then you have to buy a new iron.good luck.
