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 pro iron shut off while i was ironing in

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.

SOURCE: 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..

The power cord on my Shark model #G146810 is loose and doesnt heat, can this problem be fixed?


Hi!!
It should be an access plate fasten by a couple of screws right below the power cord, remove them and fix the cord's terminals/contacts or the cord itself.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Iron leaking and plate dirty


If you have hard water, there will be a buildup of minerals where the rubber gasket on the water tank meets the steam chamber that is built into the sole plate. This will make the rubber gasket surface become hard and no longer seak to the team chamber, resulting in water leaking from the tank onto the outside of the iron.

If you are reasonably skilled with tools and have a Torx T20 driver, you can disassemble the iron and remove the rubber gasket between the tank and the steam chamber and soak it in vinegar to remove the mineral scale. First remove the three Torx screws visible at the rear of the iron and gently pry off the gray rear cover plate. This will expose two screws holding the rear end of the sole plate. Remove those two screws. Then gently pry off the stainless steel nose piece on the front of the iron; this is the curved piece that says "high precision" on it. This will then expose the screw that holds the front of the sole plate on the handle. Remove thqt screw. Pull the black connector at the rear of the iron off the two rods to which it is attached, and you can move the sole plate away from the handle. The rubber piece in the handle that is sort of oval shaped and about 2 inches long is the gasket that is probably causing the leak. Gently remove it and soak it in vinegar to remove the scale, and remove the scle from the round hole where it meets the steam chamber in the sole plate. .When they are clean, reassemble the gasket onto the handle and the sole plate onto the handle, connecting the electrical connections, and replace the screws, It is not simple, but it is doable.

Wont turn on


I agree.

It is probably a loose screw (if you shake the iron, you may hear it rattle).. The iron is most likely good, just needs a 5 minute repair.

If you want to do it, or find someone to do it:
1. UNPLUG the iron.
2. remove the 4 screws from the back end of the iron.
3. Open the back plastic plate.
4. There will be a wire with a loose screw; tighten it.
5. There may be a broken wire near the screw; if so, remove the eyelet that is on the screw. put the screw back on and wrap the broken wire end onto the screw and tighten.
6. Replace the back plate.
7. Plug back in and use for a few more years.

Hope this helps!
