Question about Euro-Pro Shark GI490 Iron

Open Question

When ironing my Shark Euro-ProX Electric Flatiron/Model #G1467 the cord split where it goes into the rubber tunnel . It shot sparks and burned my ironing board pad. I immediately pulled the plug. I enjoyed my Shark iron but hesitate to buy another. Have you had many reports of this type of burning problem. Please let me know and if there is any type of guarantee?

Testimonial: "I have, in the last 6/7 years had 2 Shark Irons, both did not last me 5 years. That is a far cry from 10 to 20 years. I was told to use tap water."

SOURCE: my shark pro iron shut off while i was ironing in

Iron's have a thing called a "Thermal Fuse" these go "Faulty" or "Blow" very frequently, it is relatively simple to check and replace. Find the fuse, a small metal cylindrical thing, with a lead at each end. Use a meter set to OHMS and measure it, it should be a "Short Circuit" IE: 0 Ohms. If not it is faulty. But if it is IE: Open Circuit, NO reading, it should be replaced. It will have markings on it to denote it's type, get one the same, and replace it.

Was using my Shark x-tended steamburst Euro-pro iron G1490 and it turned off and won't turn on


I had the same problem. The repair took less than 15 min. I opened the bottom of the iron and discovered what appears to be a design flaw on the cord holder/fastener. The holder is wedged so tight that it pinched the cord wire almost in half. I removed the cord, cut it off at the pinched spot and reinstalled. I also put a small piece of rubber onto the part of the holder that is made onto the body of the iron. In addition, I rotated the fastener cap so that the smooth side of it is against the cord.

How to change the cord of the iron ?


Remove the back plate where the cord attaches to the iron... there are 4 screws visible and another 2 screws hidden under the two rubber feet...These are joined together by a rubber strip and can be removed by prying up and out with a small pry.... once the cover is removed you will see where to take the old cord off and replace it with a new one..
