How to release the stuck steam button in Shark iron-61468-10?


If the steam button is got stuck in the down position in your iron then follow this procedures to release the stuck button:--
1) First of all pull the button up. You may have to coax it up; you can pry it back to the up position with a needle. Grasp it firmly and pull it straight off (it is fitted in place by friction only).
2) Below the button is a stem that operates the valve, gently pull it back up with a pair of needle nose pliers (careful - the stem is made up of plastic material).
3) Then replace the button (align the stem into the hole on the bottom of the button to its exact position. Cycle the button a few times with water in the reservoir. You should be back in the ironing business now! :)
It seems like it sticks when the iron is left unused condition for a period of time; as if the valve gets stuck up when dry. leave water in it this time, although the instruction manual says not to. But leaving the water in it may not let it get dry.
This will help.good luck.

Steam button broke?


I've looked up parts for this iron. Sorry to say the steam button is not listed. The button may be able to be repaired at a small apliance repair center, but I do not know what the cost would.

The rocker button to enable steam to flow seems stuck. It will not rock.


The stem rod for the steam control is choke or faulty. These prevent the water going onto the sole plate that why no steam.It is possible that there is dirt that has accumulated into the stem of the steam button and is sticking the button. It is better to remove the lid and make a good cleaning to free the movement. use good spray of jet air, use WD40 to remove dirt and free.---------------- Pull the button up. You may have to coax it up; You can pry it back to the up position with a needle. Grasp it firmly and pull it straight off (it is fitted in place by friction only). Below the button is a stem that operates the valve, gently full it back up with a pair of needle nose pliers (careful - the stem is plastic). Replace the button (align the stem into the hole on the bottom of the button. Cycle the button a few times with water in the reservoir.It seems like it sticks when the iron is left unused for a period of time; or the dirt get collected under the button.As if the valve sticks when dry.

Tefal Pro Express - Constant Steam


Found this on another site and just tried it. Put 50/50 water and vinegar in the tank and leave it to go through on the constant steam. Give it about 5 minutes then try the button. Mine gave an extra spurt of steam at this point but still continued giving steam out all the time. I refilled with the water vinegar mix and just kept pressing the steam button and letting it go through. Eventually it fixed it and the constant steam stopped. Something to do with a piece of limescale blocking the solenoid but that's all Greek to me! Hope this helps. Kind regards.
