Question about Euro-Pro Shark GI490 Iron
Posted by Anonymous on
SOURCE: was using my Shark x-tended
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.

There is probably a disconnection inside the iron that's why it won't light up. Usually, when the heating element get's defective, the won't heat.
If the iron has a three pin socket/plug, open the plug and check if the fuse is intact. If the fuse is intact, then it means you will have to disassemble the iron.
Check all the wire connection inside the iron, observe if you will find any disconnection of any kind. There are not much wire inside the iron, so I believe this shouldn't be difficult.
Have the iron checked by disassembling it.
I hope you understand the above......
