Consumer Complaint of Euro-Pro Operating LLC Shark Clothing Irons

Product Info: "Shark" clothes iron. Model G1462 10, ser # 3175337 purchased about 4-6 months ago.While ironing clothes my wife stood up iron on board and it started sizzling. At first I thought it was from water running onto the iron, but then realized the sizzling noise was coming from within the water compartment area. About 3-5 seconds later smoke started coming out from between the body and the iron portion. We unplugged it and have not used it since.
