Burned out and Leaks

I purchased a Shark iron in May 2008, and have had problems since purchase of it. It leaks constantly, and most of time doesn't stay heated. Today the mechanisms of inside of iron, burned out. I don't have the box or receipt, and I'm Not paying the company to ship it back. What is the resolution to this problem!

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

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..

Bought my Shark G1400Z iron about a year ago. The iron caught on fire. Luckly I was only out of the room for a few seconds. What can be done about this?

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
