Read the label!
I didn’t bring my iron along on the trip because the hotel we’re staying is fairly new and my guess was that the iron would be ok. I got it out, filled it with water, turned it on and it worked great. Lots of steam. Then I sewed for a while and when I got ready to iron again, it had gone off and I figured most all the irons I’ve ever used, you just shake them a bit and they come back on. The more I shook, the more water poured out the bottom.
Just before I decided to go down to the front desk and ask for a new iron, I saw the little note on the iron.
It says: “Iron will shut off automatically in 15 minutes” To restart iron, push the RESET button.” And there, right on top of the iron, big as Texas, is the RESET button. When I pushed the RESET button, just like it was supposed to, the iron heated right up and stopped leaking. Makes me wonder why I didn’t see that little note there on the side of the iron.
