SOURCE: Water leaks from the bottom

Yes it is from the bottom of the boiler from a small opening, I guess a vent. Thank you for the help.

SOURCE: rowenta dx8900 has a very leak in bottom on left

Sounds like the feed tube or tank is ruptured. It may be cheaper to buy a new one from wallmart or similar store.

SOURCE: I have a Rowenta Advancer 1800W and it leaks water

May I ask WHEN you bought it and WHERE??
I have the same problems too and I'm trying to figure out the same thing.
If it can't be fixed, than I am going to write to the manufacturer to explain our problem with this iron.
Thanks.

We have Rowenta DM 890 steam iron. It dumps water. Also Why not use distilled water?


The following web blog about Rowenta steam irons has some tips on maintaining the iron:

The following web blog explains the issue of not using distilled water:
http://ths.gardenweb.com/forums/load/laundry/msg011421358265.html
I guess the bottom line is that it takes a higher temperature for distilled water to boil. It also explains that will cause the unit to spit, drip, and leak.
Try affordable spring water, and you should get better results.

Rowenta Iron leaking out of bottom and leaks on clothes


I have one of these and have been battling the leak problem for years. I'm a stubborn mechanical engineer and I'm bound and determined to fix this, when in fact I should just buy another, different, iron.

The problem is then 'handle'. Built into the handle is the water tank. The water tank is made from two pieces which are then glued and screwed together. Think of taking a coke bottle, cutting it in half, and then gluing it back together. Now you see where the problem comes in... the glue they use isn't up to the task, or the heat... or the pressure... is causing the tank to leak somewhere / everywhere.

I have disassembled this several times, meticulously scraped out the old silicone, and tried several different types of silicone to re-seal. So far it always fails. It's good for a while, but maybe a couple months, before it starts leaking again.

Conclusion... BAD DESIGN. Very disappointing, because in every other respect I like this iron better than any I've ever owned.

I have a rowenta iron that leaks a lot of water


Here's a solution . . . Do NOT buy ROWENTA! I've had 3 Rowenta irons. All of them have eventually began to dump water out of the base. . . heck, the Titanic didn't leak as much as a Rowenta iron!

At high temp settings water leaks out of steam holes in bottom


You want to run the self-clean mode. Fill with water, then over a sink, with the iron facing down, press the self-clean button. Steam will eject, along with sediment and water deposits. You may have to repeat numerous times. The iron requires soft water, if you don't have soft water at the tap then buy bottled water at the grocery store to prevent this problem.

You can also buy a cleaning solution that you mix into the water reservoir, or you can make your own by filling the iron half-full of water then add white vinegar to the fill line, then perform the self-clean mode or steam mode over a sink.

Here is a Rowenta suggestions:

The iron is leaking.


Water: Use tap water in the iron. If tap water is hard or high in organic matter, we recommend using bottled spring water or mix tap water with distilled. Do NOT use 100% distilled water. Many softening systems may cause issues as well.
Auto-Off: If iron is equipped with auto off, you need to move iron or gently shake it an allow it to heat back up before beginning to iron.
Overuse of Burst of Steam: Allow more time between each burst of steam.

The Rowenta site does not list a manual for your older model, but here is their link:
