SOURCE: The iron will not produce steam.

There are several thermal sensors around the tank, did you make sure they were not damaged or bent...they are "bi-metallic" strips, meaning they are two disimilar pieces designed to have different thermal expansion rates so at certain temp they separate (open) or move together (close) telling the control logic board to enable heater. Do make sure you did not bend them or over torque them when reattaching to their respective attachment points.

Why does it leak?


You answered you own question. She dropped the iron. That broke the water tank. Time for a new iron. It happens.

Why does water leak out of bottom of iron base unit when ironing .could it be the filter unit ?


Probably not the filter.

If it is a new iron and the drops of water are excessive I would suspect it is faulty.

If the iron is well-used I would suspect it has a scale problem where localised scale build up is preventing some of the water from closely contacting the heated metal and turning to steam. This could be particularly true if you live in a hard water area.

Steam irons originally soon caused problems unless distilled or de-ionised water was used. It is reckoned modern irons can use tap water but hard water can still cause trouble.
A descaler additive might help but I haven't had good results in the past...

My rowenta progressive iron is leaking dark black water from where the cord retracts. What is causing this. Where is black water coming from?


The mountains of Mt. Fuji have blessed you. Just kidding, have you ever dropped this iron? Mold may be growing where there is a leak in the holding tank. Water and electricity do not mix, time for a new unit.

Leaky water from sole plate


Open up iron, see if hose connected to tank came off. If you dropped iron a few to many times you could have cracked tank. Open up and you will see problem.

LEAKING IRON


This was happening with mine - leaving trails of water behind as well when I ironed. I took it all apart (figured it was already broken, what could I do worse?) I discovered that there is a rubber gasket around the hole that lets water move from the reservoir to the heating plate. The two surfaces (reservoir and plate) are held together by screws, which compresses and seals the gasket. The bottom surface of the reservoir section had been cracked (due to a drop on the cement floor, probably, and the two surfaces could no longer fit tightly together, the crack allowed it to flex, and water leak out. In other word, once it's leaking like that, it's time for a new iron. Sorry I can't offer a fix, but at least a explanation!
