You either have a lot of iron in your water or you bought a used iron. Eitherr way, run a mix of 15% wite vinegar to 75% water. use it until gone and refill with plain water and run that through. Try using distilled or filtered water.

Iron leaks water from the back end of the base


This problem is the way that rowenta seals the water tank. If the iron is disassembled and the seal is properly put on it will not leak,, however this seal is a silicone based product and not just an off the shelf gasket. I have sealed and repaired some using a high temp silicone

Rust


A few cheap n easy ideas I hope will help you...

  • You could try using a car radiator flush treatment such as rust & scale inhibitor to flush the water tank.

  • Fill water tank with Coca-Cola . Let it soak at least overnight and rinse out thoroughly.Think im crazy? Leave a old coin in a glass a coke for a few days and see what happens!!
  • Refrain from using tap water to fill the iron. Use distilled water ,it's has less of the impurities that cause rust and other metal-oxides forming
  • If all else fails use a small spray bottle of water on the clothes that are at most risk of being soiled.
That way you can add fragrance oil or other things to the water that would normally get boiled off /or pollute the water tank :)
