    It is not the iron itself it is the tank that you put water in on the eruo pro ironing soluation. It is inside the ironing board. it is a cermic thing on bottom of tank that has two white wires going to it. it is a fuse I think but don't know I just one to get that cermic thing to put back on it is bad.

This unit has two heaters in it. One is for the water and the other is for the iron. There is either a thermal cutoff fuse or a bad heater element in the steamer section. The availability of parts and service is not good. I would get another one or a different one.

The water aperture inside the iron is clogged and no water is entering the steam chamber. You may find that a mixture of caustic soda and warm water will clear the aperture or you can try any of the proprietary iron cleaners. The aperture becomes clogged with calcium and other impurities and attempting to clean out the aperture usually fails but this is cheaper then replacing the iron so give it a go.. It may also be that the heating element is not reaching a high enough temperature to vaporise the water into steam so check that the iron is getting hot enough BUT DON'T TOUCH IT, Flick water onto the sole plate when the iron is upto temp, if it slowly boils away then it aint hot enough, it should splatter into steam..

Internal there is a heating element that can burn out. Its kinda the same as you have in a dryer when it decides not to heat. You can check it for resistance if you can access it. Then you can order the part. If it has no resistance like no number then its bad

Hello Laverneray, I would like you to know how your iron works first. The way your Iron is built is as simple as this: When you put on your Iron, without activating or turning-on the steam tab, only the heating element inside the iron works, which is being controlled by a bi-metallic strip, and allows you to iron your clothes that do not require steam, Now, when you activate the steam tab, a small, white, heating box at the base of the Iron is being supplied an electric current, and it becomes hot. The heat generated by this box gets the water inside the Iron very hot, and as soon as you keep pressing your clothes after this, Hot water in steam form or aerosols, spray on your clothes, making it easier to Iron tough clothes. If the voltage now becomes really high more than the specified amount, or there is any other voltage fluctuation, this small heating box might get damaged, and this is exactly what I suspect happened to your Steam Iron. In this case, There are three options that I would tell you: 1. Try to get a very good electrician to remove this box for you, open it up, and see if it is something that can be fixed. If yes, then just tell him to fix it for you, you might need to pay a little for his services. 2. If he says it cant be fixed, then ask him whether you can get an Iron of the same type, or that uses the same mechanism, but a fairly-used one, which still has its heating box functional/working properly, then tell him to remove it and fix it for you. 3. Go to an electric store, preferably where you initially bought the Iron from, and ask them if you can get a spare part of the Iron itself, if they say yes, then just buy it from them, and let them, or a very good electrician fix it for you. Let me know how it goes / Keep me posted about the problem. Hope this helps you out. Good luck.

there is a heating element and a heater in the iron.the heating element is for iron heating and heater to heat the water and get stem.in your iron the heater is got faulty and not working.as you mentioned two wires .yes there are two wires.one goes for heater and other for heating element.may be its possible that heater wire is got short in between or got cut in between.so it needs to be checked and replaced after confirming either is wire or the heater itself that is faulty.you will have to check out this with multi merer.
if you are not familiar with doing this you can get it done by local repair technician familiar with this model .

    after extensive searching, it's the only one I could find, so I suggest you get two while the getting is good!Customer Support for Sharkvac Products - sharkvac.com
    This link will take you to a web page that will allow you to send the manufacturer an email explaining the part you need. Please, before you send the email, try your best to find your manual and see if there is a part number listed for the part you want. If not, and the old part is available (like—if you have a broken one), check it over thoroughly (perhaps using a small flashlight and magnifying glass to make sure you don't miss it) for any numbers that might be stamped, embossed, or etched into it. Even if they are not part numbers, they may help the manufacturer to locate the one you need. No matter what, send them as much information as you possibly can in order to help them be able to help you—the easier you make it on them, the more likely you are to get satisfactory results. Finally, here is a toll-free number for the manufacturer's tech-support line: the same "homework" applies before you call it:1-800-798-7398. Hours are Monday through Saturday from 9:00am to 6:00pm Eastern Standard Time.
    I hope this helps!

Hello. i can assist you. It appears that your iron is heating up but you are not seeing any steam generated. There are a few possible causes for this: 1. On/Off button is not in the “ON” position.2.Steam generator has no more water.3.Unit is not plugged in.4.Steam is not visible because the temperature of the soleplate is at maximum and room temperature is high.5.Generator is not fully heated.
And here are some solutions for you to consider: 1.Press the On/Off button to the “ON” position.2.Fill with water as per instructions.3.Make sure that the On/Off button is in the “OFF” position and plug the unit into an electrical outlet.4/5. The heating time for the generator is approximately 9 minutes. Watch for the steam ready light to go off indicating that steam is ready. Regards, Joe

Check the solenoid steam valve which is fitted on the steam tank output pipe, there is most likely a small port where some particles have clogged it up. Fill the reservoir with vinegar and water (50-50) and allow it to soak for 24 hours, then reheat and shake vigorously to drain. After you do that, rinse it out and retry

It is my first time using it, I brought it from USA and it is not working at all!!


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
If the iron doesn't heat, make sure power is on to the outlet, check the electric cord and check the thermostat .
If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents (see below) and flush sediment out of the steam chamber (see below).
If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical cord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat

If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle
If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.
If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the soleplate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the soleplate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water.

No steam is coming out i think it needs cleaning


Some irons like Rowenta have a self cleaning feature. If yours doesn't make a solution of 1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water and put it in your iron. Plug it in and allow it to heat that up. keep working your instant steam button for a while. Hopefully the vinegar will help remove the calcium build up and let it work.

Iron is leakin onto clothing while ironing


Leaking irons happen more frequently when performing lower temperature ironing. Minimize the chances of this happening by doing the articles that require less heat with a dry iron. When you're ready to do the articles that require higher heat settings, add distilled water to the iron after allowing it to cool first (some folks suggest using rain water as it will lack the minerals contained in the soil - where water pumped from the ground picks them up).

Distilled water is recommended by manufacturers for irons. Use of regular tap water will cause mineral deposits to form inside the iron that can build up and even clog the openings on the bottom plate. These can contribute to stains on the material being ironed, too. If you are unable to obtain distilled water, you ought to descale the iron regularly to remove deposits that will form by heating water or allowing it to simply evaporate. Distilled water lacks the minerals to be deposited by either of these situations. If distilled water is used - there is no need to empty the iron before storing. Tap water - whether supplied by the locality or a well is loaded with minerals and may be treated with fluoride, chlorine, etc.

Descaling
an iron is pretty straight forward - no more difficult than descaling a coffee maker. Empty the iron of any water. Partially fill the iron with white vinegar and turn on to heat. Iron and old towel or rag to allow all the vinegar to pass through the steam openings.When empty, repeat once or twice - but with fresh distilled water to flush any remaining vinegar from the iron. When satisfied that the vinegar is out, store the iron. You can purchase products expressly made for descaling irons - just like you can for coffeemakers, but vinegar is a great low cost solution that works very well.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Its not heating and steam doesn´t come out? where can i fixed or get parts?


Do you have limescale in your water? If so, the iron could be clogged with what looks like sand. Try bashing it around a bit and see if sand comes out the sides. If so, continue until no more sand comes out.
