Question about Rowenta DX6700 Iron
Either the water has sat in the iron too long between uses
or its the iron in the water you use.
you will have to flush out the old water.
try distilled water

Distilled Water is not recommended for use in Rowenta irons. It may cause dripping from the iron. If you have hard water, you may have to use the self clean function on the iron more often.

you can mix 50% water with 50% vinager let it set in the iron overnight then turn it on and let the steam run out.What happens is the inside of the iron where the water is had corroded or rusted or has lime deposits.the vinager will break this loose overnight.also after you let the iron steam out all the mixture,flush the iron 4 to 5 times and start using fresh water from a store bought gallon.your tap water is probably full of iron.

SOURCE: It leaks water when I iron
1:Clean your steam iron according to the manufacturer's instructions. Your iron is more likely to leak when it has not been cleaned properly. Plus, the water that leaks from a steam iron that hasn't been cleaned will likely be dirty and stain your fabric. Every steam iron brand is different, so be sure to check the manual that came with your iron or browse the manufacturer's website for instructions on keeping your steam iron in good working order.
2:Use your steam iron on a rigid surface like an ironing board. In a rush, you might be tempted to quickly iron a blouse or pants on the nearest available surface like a bed, carpet or even on a table with a towel draped over it. However, these surfaces may not provide the proper amount of level padding for successful steam ironing, and leaks are more likely to occur. Take the time to set up your ironing board for smooth steam ironing to reduce water leaks on a bumpy surface.
3:Allow your steam iron to heat fully in the upright position before ironing. Because your steam iron is designed to convert water into steam that will easily smooth out wrinkles on bulky fabrics, you can avoid leaks by ensuring your iron has time to get the water to the correct temperature. If you lay your steam iron in the horizontal position too quickly, water that is not hot enough to convert to steam will leak. Give the iron a chance to heat up, and then test your steam function on your ironing board cover or spare fabric swatch before tacking your favorite blouse.
4:Turn off the steam function on your iron when ironing at lower temperatures. Since your iron's steam function is designed to convert the water in your iron to steam at the right temperature, lower iron temperatures can cause water to leak if your steam setting is still activated. For ironing more delicate fabrics, turn off the steam to avoid water leaks.

To clean the sole plate, Rowenta has a sole plate cleaning kit for $9.99, however, Dritz sewing notions makes one too and it is much cheaper. You take an old CLEAN dishcloth and squeeze about an inch of the cleaner on the towel. Using a hot, dry iron move it back and forth over the cleaner until the sole plate is smooth and clean. I then use a q-tip to clean any residue from the sole plate. Keep turning the towel until all the cleaner is removed from the iron. Any time my iron becomes sticky I use this method and it works great.

Your water could have high iron content, therefore empty out the old water and use Distilled water in the iron.
If you are using Distilled water already then it's a problem with the inside of the iron. Get a new iron.

Brown water and white scale are often the result of the water you use in the iron...
If you have scale, white vinegar will clean that...
For brown water, empty the iron, rinse out the insides with bottled water,
and then use the bottled water instead...
