Question about Rival IR600 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!
