The advice i will give on this is to get a complete new wire for your pressing iron, getting a complete new wire will save you alot of stress and time, and will even pare your iron from getting damaged from the irregularities on the wire. The wire can damage the element on the iron due to its malfunctioning, it is better you get a new wire, it is not expensive, you can get a new wire for your iron for less than $5, it is better and saver to get a complete new wire because the one there at moment may have broken inside that is why it malfunction.

Take care.

Shark iron g1462

the lights you witness are correct. once the iron has reached tempreture.

ensure the iron is stored in an upright position between ironing items if left laying down the iron may switch off as an anti-burn or fire safety feature as if left unattended. with the iron placed on its back plate with its point facing upwards the iron should stay on.

I hope this was useful.

Iron will not stay on

More than likely your power cord has a broken wire. Plug the iron in and mover the cord around. See if you can find the broken wire. Typically where the cord comes out of the iron and right at the plug. Or replace the whole cord. Your local hardware store, youtube, or menards can show you how. Very easy to do. I tend to stay away from home depot.

there are 4 screws that you can see and two more under the large rubber stand off at the bottom. I also need you post the wire in the back because I took mine apart and now don't remember the position of the wires

Damaged mains cable

it is betterr to get a sealed power plug with the nylon insulation for the iron with a 15 amps rating wire and plug.
open the unit and disconnect the wire of the damaged plug, remove and replace with the new one taking care to connect each of the wires to the correct position. The lead , neutral and the ground must be double checked before you switch on.

Black & Decker Quick/Easy X415 won't stay on

Like most consumer whitegoods nowadays, the cover is 'protected' by 'tamper-proof' or security bits screws that take may forms: you can get the a set of screw driver security bits at most hardware or electronic shops.
The power cord to your iron has one or more electrical lead that has just about broken off due to fatigue failure: it is a dangerous situation because of potential arcing so I would get it fixed it as soon as possible by a 'qualified' person: that said, there are only three wires to your iron and once you get the back cover off, you can easily find out where ths break is by just pulling hard on each wires. The break would normally be fairly close so you have the option of shortening the lead (which must otherwise also be in good condition ) to where the longest break is and rewiring the leads back in exactly the same screw terminals on the iron.
Please remeber that you are dealing with a potentially dangerous main voltage appliance and extreme care is required.

Hope it helps.

Cord seem loose - iron keeps shutting off - jiggling cord gets it started again - need to do this to get iron going.

Try re-tightening the wires at the plug and on the iron, but if this does not solve the problem ,replace the cable.You should be able to get it from your local hardware.

Hope this has helped you

Please come back to me if you have any further issues
