SOURCE: Cleaning a self cleaning iron
Fill the Iron with water but keep the water level below the max line. Plug in the iron and set the temp to 6 and stand iron on it's heel and allow to heat for 3 mins. Now unplug the iron and take it to a sink move and Hold the variable steam dial in the CLEAN position. There may be some hissing and spitting while cleaning so be careful. Continue to hold the dial in the clean position until all the water has emptied. If necessary rock side to side and back to front to get all the water out.When finished release the steam dial plug in the iron and heat for about 2 mins to dry out the remaining water and unplug.

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:

fill with water turn iron on max keep turning steam dial all the way to the right until you get to self clean hold iron horizontal and make sure you have a towel or something to catch water drips and debris coming out of iron let iron steam and spit water out until it stops on its own turn dial back to regular steam settings wipe residue off of the plate with a towel adjust temp settings back to normal

I had same issue , now , once you turn the unit on , you should see displayed 3 steam jets and the flashing standby , turn the dial on the iron to max ,press the steam button on the machine to max steam , leave for a minute or so , now press the steam button on the iron , does it make a noise ? if it does , slightly raise the whole front end of the unit ( easier if you have the iron on the worktop and not on the unit !) for a minute then try and press the steam button on the iron again . I think there is a bit of an issue about the conection between the water tank and the filter . This solved my issues and i do hope it will help you .

Hi Im having the same problem but mine is 6mths old..I think its the cartridge that needs replacing as everything else works but the steam..Gonna order one today if that doesnt work I shall return it..They reckon to change it every 3/6/12 mths according to being in hard/medium/soft water area.I took the cartridge out one day and let it dry out it worked for 2 days then packed in on me again.
