given the potential danger, and relative low expense, would you just consider trashing this and buying a new one? I don't intend to sound short or sarcastic....it's just with the burning smell I would prefer you either return it for refund, call the manufacturer or trash it for a different iron.
Looking at epinions.com there is a comperable iron for around $40-$50 with 24 reviews and 3.5 stars out of 5.

Ironing with a shark gi460 iron and it started smoking and it won't turn on now. Did it burn up? Is there away to repair it?

Limescale remover, like CLR or Limeaway, or whatever they sell at the hardware store.

I think you have a tank that is calcified and is not getting enough heat to the water assuming there is enough water in it. If it was blocked it would either cause the relief valve to vent or explode.

I would start by cleaning it, my best guess would be to run a few cycles with vinegar in it. This is a mild acid that will dissolve the calcium deposits. Try maybe a 50%-50% with vinegar and water.

Be sure the vinegar will not damage the unit, I do not know.

Hope these links help.

Could be a hidden recall. I'd check MFG website, or email their customer service.

We have a Euro Pro GI472, which kept going off and on, and the problem seemed to be an intermittent connection in the power circuit. If we "fiddled" with the cord, the power light would go off and on. To get the back off, I removed the two screws below the rubber feet, near the identification tag. Then I had to pop the red plastic light lens off the top of the iron. The lens is held by two plastic "claws" one at the top and at the bottom of the lens. Once the lens is out, there is a small Phillips-head screw visible between two light sources. I removed the screw, and that freed the cover, and made it possible to access the wiring. Testing continuity from the wall plug to the two wires inside the iron, and flexing the cord, quickly led to a spot in the cord that was slightly kinked, and that was the location of the fault. Both wires under the insulation were broken. In fact there were small balls of melted copper near the breaks. Then it is a matter of making sure you know which wire of the power cord goes to which spot in the iron (a photo or a sketch will save mistakes when reassembling) cutting out the faulty wire, getting a suitable crimp connector and a wire nut and rewiring the iron.
