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!

I was having the exact same problem. It happened infrequently, then over time it got worse. I would jiggle the cable to get it to turn back on again, and that worked for about six months. Eventually the iron was unusable, I had to hold the cable in one spot and it would go on for about 30 seconds, then die out.
I decided to go on a little adventure inside the iron to see what the problem was. I was convinced the cable was frayed on the inside from rotating so much. After unscrewing the bottom, I found there was plenty of rust inside the iron, which had gotten all over the contact points from the AC cable from the wall connects to the heating element. If I moved the cable back and forth, I could hear it sparking and get a good connection.
It doesn't appear that the rust was from water leakage inside the iron, but rather steam produced while ironing. After cutting the wires and soldering the connection, the iron works fine again. It took about 1/2 hour to do from start to finish.
I would recommend getting a different brand, it only took mine a year from purchase date to fail.

You may not need a new iron, my wife's iron is doing the same thing. take the top of the ironing board off (you will need a torx t-20 security bit driver), under the tank is a connection that may have rusted out re-connet it and turn the iron on. Once it heats up, check the tank for leaks. The tank may need to be replace as well or try a 5-minute epoxy type glue on the leaks once it has cooled. If the tank leaks you will get not get enlugh pressure building up to get the steam.
