Question about Euro-Pro Shark GI490 Iron
The heater coil in those irons does get worn out as they age. the are basically large resisters (just like those little wires in a toaster). there is a chance that calcium has built up on them caused by the water. add some vinigar to the water you put in the iron and let it sit for a couple hours or overnight if possible. rinse it out and see if that makes a difference.

ensure your iron steam button is not set into perminent steam function. leaving the iron with the point of the iron pointing upwards should reduce steam to the handle. also the iron may need to be descaled to ensure any steam switch funtion is not stuck in an on position.
