SOURCE: I have had 2 Shark irons and both simply stop turning on

The cost of repair is more than the cost of a new one. Therefore, trash it and buy a new one.

Testimonial: "I have, in the last 6/7 years had 2 Shark Irons, both did not last me 5 years. That is a far cry from 10 to 20 years. I was told to use tap water."

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..

Shark g1468 auto shut off (iron won't come/stay on)

First let me say I HATE AUTO SHUT OFF!!! It sounds like it has wore out. the computer part that tells it when to shut off it not working. It would be cheaper to buy a new one vs fixing yours. If I were you, find an older iron that has LOTS of steam vents and NO AUTO SHUTOFF at your local goodwill, thrift store or garage sale.

Shark Iron just quite working i have had it about 8 months and it has been good

given the potential danger, and relative low expense, would you just consider trashing this and buying a new one? I don't intend to sound short or's just with the burning smell I would prefer you either return it for refund, call the manufacturer or trash it for a different iron.
Looking at there is a comperable iron for around $40-$50 with 24 reviews and 3.5 stars out of 5.

It shuts itself off

The SHARK ELECTRONIC Iron is equipped with an electronic auto-off. The electronic auto-off switches the iron off if it has been left standing unmoved in any position (sideways, flat or upright) for approximately 7-9 minutes. A red light on the LED display panel will flash when the iron switches itself off. (Fig. 7) To switch the iron back on, just shake the iron side-to-side several times.

Iron quit working in less than 1 year.

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?
