Just stop working. seems as if no electric power is reaching wherever it is suppose to. Iron is about 2 years old.


Hi,
Those types of problems are usually one of two things... the cord where is enters the iron, the wires are broken. Or the thermostat has gone bad...
The iron will need to be taken apart and the wiring checked witha meter to find the problem for sure...

I have a Euro-Pro E8000. It is about 15 years old. The iron heats up but does not produce steam. I probably have not used it in about 1 year. Any suggestions?


Check that the steam holes in the base are clear. There are patent sale cleaners available commercially. Enquire at any major appliance store etc.

How much water do i put in this steamer


There is a water level indicator and you must use according to the amount of ironing you have in mine. If there is a whole lot fillit up to the full limit mark , if less use less just for an emergency.
Hope you get this right. Good day

The iron will not turn on or light up. It is not the cord.


There should be screws in the back where the cord is inserted, remove these screws. Now you should see the cord, check to make sure the wires are connected, both the ground and hot wire. If all wires are ok, then check the on/safety shutoff switch for damage with a voltmeter.

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?

We fixed ours today. Take the iron plate off (bottom of the iron shaped like a triangle). You are looking for a thermal fuse (or thermal-protector fuse) pictured here for less than $2 at Radio Shack(http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2102788&CAWELAID=107599331). You will need needlenose pliers to gently remove the old fuse and the wire cutters to trim the long wires to the same length as the old fuse (less than 1/2"). Also, since the old fuse was 240 C and we only could find a 228 C replacement - we cannot use the iron at the same high temp. So we limited the dial by marking out a portion of the dial. The iron stopped working after I kept the iron on high for an extended period of time. My electrician husband explained that I over heated the iron - breaking the fuse. Not time I'll turn the iron off or down when I'm not using it. This was so easy, I'm going to check out our other broken irons.

Make a solution of half water and half white vinegar. Fill up your iron and get it good and hot then let it sit a couple hours. flush out and repeat as necessary. Hope you find this helpful. Please give me a fixya rating If this works for you. It works very well as long as it is not completely filled with scale. Once you have it
good and clean By a gallon of bottled water at the market and use that for your Iron and you will never have a scale problem again. I learned how to do this 20 years ago from a 80 year old woman from england. If it is really bad you can up
the vinegar concentration but do not go higher than 2 cup to 1.
