Question about Euro-Pro Shark GI490 Iron

1 Answer

Iron won't heat

I turn on the iron (G1490), the temperature setting lights on the left go up as usual. But the iron won't heat and the green light at the bottom right flashes.

Any suggestions?


Thanks,

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.

Why light blinks then goes off when switch is still in the on position


The thermostat in the iron controls the temperature of the iron. The red light indicates when the power applied to heat the iron which is set by the temperature dial on the iron. When it reaches the correct temperature the thermostat turn off the power and that is when the red light switches off.

My iron lights up. when i set the heat choice the green lights on the right flash and it does not heat up


Generally, the lights on the right flash until the desired temperature is reached. When they stop flashing it means the iron has heated to the temp. that you selected. I'm having trouble with mine now, also, so I can't diagnose.

My iron will not stop flashing and will not go to green light -- it will not heat up


Hello :

Check the fuse first ! If the fuse is in good condition , then try this troubleshooting .

1: Make sure there's enough water in the tank if the iron won't steam. Fill the tank up .
2:Check that the iron is set to a steam setting. Some of the settings are dry and won't create steam.
3:Set the temperature dial to the shaded setting which represents steam. You'll see a little dark cloud-type icon with raindrops as opposed to a white cloud with a stripe through it. The dark cloud represents moisture (steam), and the white cloud with the stripe through it represents no steam.
4:Allow the iron to heat up for a while and to emit steam for a couple of minutes while pressing the extra-long burst button a few times. That should get rid of any impurities which can cause blockages. Try this if the iron hasn't been used for a while and steaming is intermittent.
5:Iron horizontally. Steam is only generated when the iron is horizontal.
6:Use the maximum steam setting when the iron is set to its maximum temperature setting.
7:Let the iron get to a high temperature before expecting steam. If the soleplate isn't hot enough, the water won't turn to steam and will in fact drip, spit or leak from the soleplate. Some Rowenta irons have an anti-drip system, which will turn off the steam when ironing at a low temperatures. Turn the temperature up, if needed.

Our G1490 quit after one year. Just won't come on. Period. I can't get it to open after removing the back screws either.
