Without the reciept and the fact that it now dosent work, I think you dump it and never buy another of thier products. You could write to them first, but you are really on your own.
Good luck

What do I do with a Shark steam iron, model G146 10?


The cost of servicing it probably makes replacement a better alternative.

My shark steam iron is leaking when ironing


It is quite possible that this is a defect in the shark G1490F... I had the same problem and it was a crack in the water holding tank caused by tightening the two front screws (hidden) that hold the tank to the base... It seemed fine at first but after a full heating it developed a crack where it had been weakened when it was assembled... I suggest returning it or if warranty is up , throw it away and get something else..

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
