You have probably solved this by now but
I just got the same model new
switch on instructions as follows
press and HOLD the POWER button for 3 seconds to switch the unit on
once temperature has been reached, press and HOLD the steam button on top of the iron for up to 20 seconds
this will prime the steam pump and only has to be done once for each ironing session
the pump noise will stop once it has been primed with water
hope this helps if still needed
if you need the user guide, let me know, I'll scan it for you

Shark iron leaks water from the bottom of the body where the power cord come out. could it be a crack in the holding tank? Is there a way to fix it,or will I need to purchase a new iron?


It is hard to assess what would be the cause, but I think your diagnosis may be correct, of a possible crack, or a tube has come loose. You tube has instructions on how to disassemble and iron if you are up to it and have the tools. Then you'd have to order a replacement part, and re-assemble. I'd just go to walmart & buy a new iron! But that's me! :)

Where is the on/off steam switch, as I cannot get the iron to steam


If the switch isn't obvious it could be it doesn't have one and is supposed to steam continuously. The last iron my wife bought is like that. When she fills the tank and plugs it in it will steam for a matter of seconds and then stop. It begins to steam again as soon as she starts to use it.

It is spitting and am not getting much steam


Probably needs decalcifying. If the iron has a steam boost button then fill it with water, turn it on and wait for it to heat up, hold it over the kitchen sink and repeatedly press the steam boost button. this may clear any blockages.

If that does not work then you can purchase a cleaning solution from a hardware store that is used to decalcify the iron. You fill the tank with the solution and let it pass through the iron to remove calcium deposits. Instructions will be provided with the solution.

How do you fill the water tank on the steamer conair model GS15RN?


FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY
FILLING INSTRUCTIONS
1. Place the unit on a stable surface.
2. While holding the water tank with one
hand, move the release lever toward the
power cord.
3. With the reservoir released, pull up on
the reservoir to remove it from the body of
the unit.
4. Turn the reservoir over, revealing the rubber
inlet cover.
5. Open the inlet cover and fill the tank
with everyday tap water (filtered water may
reduce hard water problems).
6. Close the inlet cover and return the
reservoir to its place, making sure that the
reservoir is secure.

Hope this helps! Hal

How to use the calc-clean button


Calc-Clean function
The Calc-Clean function removes scale and impurities.

To do so, set the steam control to position '0', set the temperature dial to 'MAX', and fill water tank up to the 'MAX' level. Then heat up the iron until the pilot light on the handgrip goes out.

Remove the mains plug from the wall socket and hold the iron horizontally over the sink. Then press and hold down the 'CALC CLEAN' button.

Move the iron forwards and backwards while boiling water/steam squirt from the holes in the soleplate to wash away impurities/scales.

When the water tank is empty, heat up the iron to dry it.

Finally move the iron to and fro on a piece of cloth to dry the soleplate. Repeat the process if necessary

Water left in steamer - need to clean clear tank


I'm willing to try this to clean the mold out of the steamer container and possibly the rest of the attachments:
1. Empty the water reservoir completely. 2. Place 20 mL of CLR or bleach into the reservoir. 3. Fill the reservoir with hot water. 4. Shake the reservoir to mix and let stand for about 1 hour. 5. Empty the reservoir completely. 6. Rinse the reservoir 3 or 4 times with cold water. 7. Fill the reservoir with distilled water. 8. Run the steamer into the ventilated air a couple of times to ensure that there is no CLR or bleach residue on the evaporation elements. Thus, there will be no bleach on your cloths.
I have the same problem and will try this out tomorrow. I will tell you how it turns out.

My husband threw away the opereating instructions for our iron.


SELF CLEANINGIt is important to “Self Clean” the iron at least every two weeksto remove scale, calcium, etc. The harder the water, the more often the iron should be self cleaned.1. Set the variable steam control dial to any steam position.2. Fill the water tank up to the “MAX” level.3. Stand the iron on its heel. Plug the iron into the electrical outlet.4.Press the electronic temperature control button until you get the “MAX” temperature setting on the display panel and wait until the iron heats up and temperature setting light stops flashing.5. Turn the variable steam control dial all the way to the right to the self-cleaning position and hold the iron horizontally over the sink (Fig. 8).6. Boiling water and steam will now be ejected from the holes in the soleplate. The impurities and scale are washed away with it. 7. Move the iron back and forth as this happens.8. If there is any water left in the water tank after the iron stops steaming, just empty the remaining water in a sink following the instructions for emptying the iron. 9.Turn the variable steam control dial to the “0” position when the water tank is empty.10.Place the iron back upright on its heel to cool down before storing.

Rowenta commercial steamer


got this off the manual for the IS 7800

CLEANING
Remove water container and clean the main unit with a damp
cloth. To maintain maximum performance, your steamer must
be descaled occasionally. The descaling intervals will depend
on the water quality and the frequency of use. The unit should
be descaled at least once a year or every 100 hours of use.
For descaling proceed as follows:
1. Unplug the unit and remove water container from main unit
by releasing container lock and pulling up.
2. Fill it with fresh water and shake vigorously to remove any
scale. Pour out the water and repeat if necessary.
3. Purchase a quality decalcifier agent and follow the instructions
of the manufacturer for the proper ratio of the mixture
to water and use.
4. After filling the water container turn it up and down to
descale.
5. Attach reservoir to unit, plug in and switch on.
6. Let the appliance run until the water container is almost
empty and do not steam any clothing with this mixture.
7. Unplug and detach the water container. Rinse it with fresh
water.
8. Fill water container with fresh water and repeat steps 5 and 6.
Note: If after descaling you believe that there is still buildup in
the boiler, repeat steps 1-8.
