Shark Iron not turning on

Faulty Power Cord – Unplug the iron and for power cord damage. You can use a multimeter to check it’s continuity. If beeping that’s means it’s OK.

Shark iron turns off while ironing

If you’re having issues with the auto shut off function you can reset the setting for auto shut off (more on that below). If it keeps doing this, maybe the circuit board is damaged.

Shark iron water leakage problem

If your shark iron leaking water or brown stuff it may be because of the following reasons- low temperature, calcium deposits or overfilling of water.

The water maybe isn’t heated enough to convert it into steam.

If hard water was used for a long time and wasn’t cleaned properly then the calcium deposits on the soleplate areas & steam holes may cause water dripping from there.

Another reason could be, overfilling of the water tank. If you’re filling the water tank totally then water may drip while ironing. You should fill the tank to its max limit only.
