    Hello, water leaking collected in electronics and killed the iron. Is this a known defect? The iron, not old is now worthless.

    Thanks

SOURCE: Manual for Euro-Pro G6118H

I don't know if you have the number for the euro pro customer service department; but, I had the same problem, called customer service, and had a manual emailed to me. The manual came within a couple of hours via email. In case you don't have the number and still need a manual for your unit, try calling 800.798.7398. I hope this helps and good luck!

We fixed ours today. Take the iron plate off (bottom of the iron shaped like a triangle). You are looking for a thermal fuse (or thermal-protector fuse) pictured here for less than $2 at Radio Shack(http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2102788&CAWELAID=107599331). You will need needlenose pliers to gently remove the old fuse and the wire cutters to trim the long wires to the same length as the old fuse (less than 1/2"). Also, since the old fuse was 240 C and we only could find a 228 C replacement - we cannot use the iron at the same high temp. So we limited the dial by marking out a portion of the dial. The iron stopped working after I kept the iron on high for an extended period of time. My electrician husband explained that I over heated the iron - breaking the fuse. Not time I'll turn the iron off or down when I'm not using it. This was so easy, I'm going to check out our other broken irons.

Shark g1468 auto shut off (iron won't come/stay on)


First let me say I HATE AUTO SHUT OFF!!! It sounds like it has wore out. the computer part that tells it when to shut off it not working. It would be cheaper to buy a new one vs fixing yours. If I were you, find an older iron that has LOTS of steam vents and NO AUTO SHUTOFF at your local goodwill, thrift store or garage sale.

Good day I have an euro pro iron and it leaks all the time leaving water on washed clothes.also it leaks out of the bottom??


The water may come out at the bottom instead of steam. this is due to insufficient heat produced. So switch on your ironbox and keep it in full temperature using the knob. then the water will be coming out as steam and not as water itself. Try again.


I hope this is useful to you
Thanks

My irons leaks


Hi
You obviously live in a hard water area and use the iron a lot.
Try using distilled water only. You can get this from motorists shops, they use it for topping up batteries.
please leave feedback
THANKS

Shark iron


I bought this Shark iron last July and I even saved the receipt!!But I threw the box away. The water is leaking out of the bottom. I bought the expensive Rowenta before that, and that one leaked all over my ironing. And I cleaned these irons faithfully every month. I need a toll free number for Shark
