I don't have that particular model but my Rowenta as a self cleaning setting.
However, I am going to assume yours does not have that feature. In a jar or pitcher, mix 1 cup of vinegar and 1 cup of tap water. Pour that into the reservoir and allow it to sit an hour, then turn on your Rowenta and with lucky you should see some steam. If so allow it to steam ... checking it often to make sure nothing is being damaged by pressure or over heating. If you run out of solution before the iron is steaming correctly... repeat. It may take a few tries at this before you get some serious steam.
please see the cause and fix it: a) tank or ports clogged. Dissasembly and inspect replace tank and seal if badly clogged. Emptying iron after each use allow heats to evaporate remaining water and helps prevent clooging. Inspect valve and linkage: clean or replace as necessary GOD BLESS YOU

Your iron may be due for a cleaning. After awhile the ports inside the iron become clogged with mineral deposits.
Try using a mix of 1/2 white vinegar and 1/2 water. place the mix in the reservoir and allow the iron to heat up for steam until the reservoir is empty. Then do a second round with plain distilled water. Clean the the iron plate of residue after it cools.
If the vinegar mix does not work (and you can do the mix a few times) try using a product such as "Lime Away" or "CLR" to dissolve the deposits. Hope this helps.
if no steam at all, there is most likely a small port where some particles have clogged...fill it with vinegar and water (50/50) and allow to soak 24 hrs, then reheat then shake vigorously to drain then rinse then retry
