My Rowenta 1700W is leaking out of the bottom of the iron and also is starting to leak on the clothes when I iron. I have misplaced my manual and am not sure how to resolve this problem. I need help! Thanks.

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.

You need to follow the instructions for the iron. Rowenta make a excellent iron but it's water tank and steam chamber need to be cleaned and rinsed out, say every third use depending on how much you use it. Also, allow the iron to reach FULL TEMPRATURE before you use it.

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!

Suddenly began leaking and overheating, such as too hot for demin but only set of min. Last time this happened I bought a new iron. The new one has been dropped - last year but nothing recently and this...


The iron started leaking from front and back. took iron back to Wal Mart and got another iron and it did the same thing. I cannot use the iron because it is hard to hold the steam almost burn your hands because it leaks a lot all over my cloths . I was so disgusted with the iron until I just put it in the corner and bought another iron from wal mart. I did not know if they would take the iron back , because I had it for a bout (3) months.
