Hi!!
It should be an access plate fasten by a couple of screws right below the power cord, remove them and fix the cord's terminals/contacts or the cord itself.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Shark iron leaks water from the bottom of the body where the power cord come out. could it be a crack in the holding tank? Is there a way to fix it,or will I need to purchase a new iron?


It is hard to assess what would be the cause, but I think your diagnosis may be correct, of a possible crack, or a tube has come loose. You tube has instructions on how to disassemble and iron if you are up to it and have the tools. Then you'd have to order a replacement part, and re-assemble. I'd just go to walmart & buy a new iron! But that's me! :)

Iron has stopped heating


Check the power connection, the power cord to the heating coil. If there is no suppy then check the bimetal contact of the temperature setting switch, if voltage comes to coil without heating, the coil can be open .
You will have to use a multimeter in Ohms range to check the continuity of the coil.
Have to decide is coil is open about the cost of coil to that of a new iron.
