SOURCE: my shark steam iron is leaking when ironing

It is quite possible that this is a defect in the shark G1490F... I had the same problem and it was a crack in the water holding tank caused by tightening the two front screws (hidden) that hold the tank to the base... It seemed fine at first but after a full heating it developed a crack where it had been weakened when it was assembled... I suggest returning it or if warranty is up , throw it away and get something else..

SOURCE: Iron quit working in less than 1 year.

Bought my Shark G1400Z iron about a year ago. The iron caught on fire. Luckly I was only out of the room for a few seconds. What can be done about this?

Shark Intelligent Electronic Iron - how to clean the soleplate?


Try a "magic eraser". They're minimally abrasive. Then run the iron over a piece of waxed paper and then on a cotton cloth or rag.

Shark iron


I bought this Shark iron last July and I even saved the receipt!!But I threw the box away. The water is leaking out of the bottom. I bought the expensive Rowenta before that, and that one leaked all over my ironing. And I cleaned these irons faithfully every month. I need a toll free number for Shark
