SOURCE: Does anyone know how to
I think I have the solution now!
First of all, remove the temperature knob. Than remove the temperature indicator (it's like a little disc). Theres a hidden screw under the temperature indicator! Remove that screw and continue with your fixes.
I hope it could help you.
p.s. - Sorry for my noob english...

SOURCE: My Shark Iron leaks....
fill with water turn iron on max keep turning steam dial all the way to the right until you get to self clean hold iron horizontal and make sure you have a towel or something to catch water drips and debris coming out of iron let iron steam and spit water out until it stops on its own turn dial back to regular steam settings wipe residue off of the plate with a towel adjust temp settings back to normal

Iron's have a thing called a "Thermal Fuse" these go "Faulty" or "Blow" very frequently, it is relatively simple to check and replace. Find the fuse, a small metal cylindrical thing, with a lead at each end. Use a meter set to OHMS and measure it, it should be a "Short Circuit" IE: 0 Ohms. If not it is faulty. But if it is IE: Open Circuit, NO reading, it should be replaced. It will have markings on it to denote it's type, get one the same, and replace it.

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..
