Shark 1800 Iron

This morning while ironing for work my iron kept going on and off. All of a sudden a flame shot through the cord where it attaches to the iron and left soot on my arm, not to mention the shock from the noise that went with it! No more Shark products for me!!!

Shark Professional 1800 Watt

I had some friends over sewing in my sewing room and all of a sudden we smelled something burning and the next thing we knew there was a lot of smoke coming out of the iron. It was crackling and everything. Had we not been right there I believe my house would have burned down. It was scary. We unplugged it just in time and got it outside. Some of the silver area around the bottom was melting. I had just told my friends I really liked the iron too with the exception of it not holding water. I've had the iron for about 1.5 years and the knob was difficult to twist to steam or no steam so after it lost a full tank of water all over the place I didn't have to worry about that anymore. Now I will never buy another Shark. Ever.

Unsafe

Unsafe shark 1600 watt professional iron. Had the iron for less than 6 months. I had been ironing for approximately 30 minutes, set the iron upright, to reach for another shirt heard this hissing coming from the iron. It shorted out. Caught on fire on the inside of the iron, and started to smoke.

Shark steam iron

I've had about a year and have always had a problem with water leaking which got worse over time, now won't even turn on. Tried to have it repaired and they said it wasn't worth the expense. Very disappointing!

Shark Steam Iron GH1468NN

I've had this iron about 6 months. Thought I was buying the best. However, wen I put water it it for steaming, all the water gushes out as soon as I start to iron. Very disappointed with this product.

shark iron model#g1468nn 10

I've had this iron for less than six months and now it won't even heat up. I thougt I was buying a very good product, but it turned out to be a lemon. I hope Shark stands behind their products i can't even call to talk to a representative about the problem.

Thought I was the only one with Shark iron problem until I got to this site. Got mine for about a year and now it is dead. No power what so ever. No more Shark iron or product in this house!

Wow, after reading all the other complaints about the Shark iron I can see I am not the only one who really dislikes it. It does tip over easily, and my steam button broke so now I can't get any steam to work. I guess it's time to research irons and see what not only works, but who stands behind their product.

Dangerous and unsafe

I bought this steam iron and I am very unhappy with it. I just called the company and they cannot do anything about it. They are blaming my ironing board. It is unsafe and dangerous. When it is upright, it easily tips over and falls. I have had the iron for 10 months and I am more upset because it fell on the floor when I accidentally hit my ironing board last week. This is the second time it has fallen on the floor while it was heated. I cannot return to the retailer because I have had the iron too long. I know I should have returned the iron from the beginning, but it is now apparent that is unsafe.
