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.

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.

Hello,

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......

Good luck.

HI, I DONT KNOW HOW TO OPEN MY SHARK RETRACTOR IRON, IT HAS 2 SCREWS AND I PUT THEM OUT....BUT THE PROTECTOR DOESN´T RELEASE....HELP


Right below the button that you press to select fabric is that black rubbery piece. Use a screw driver to pry it up and then remove the three screews holding down the rest of the retracter. Mine was getting power to the circuits so I trashed it. I won't ever buy this brand iron again has it did not last very long.

good luck
