Oh no!!! I didn't want to read this as I have the same one. My biggest complaint is that it I have to constantly feed it water because it is soooo steamy.
I'm sorry, but I just have to laugh! This is the typical "iron story" these days. I wish you luck, but I believe irons are only made to function for 6 months. At least that as long as my last 5 irons have lasted.
I'm sorry it did not work out for you. If it helps at all...Reliable has another less expensive iron coming out....and it shoots as much steam as the V100. I got to play with it at Market and I loved it too.I hope they do right by you at Black and Decker.Smiles,Kelly
