Sounds like you need to open the iron up and look for a loose hose/clamp or crack around brass nipple to steam/water reservoir connections. If it has been leaking for some time, there may be some water deposits to help you find the leak(s).
Rowenta typically uses multi-point security Torx fasteners that may be obtained at Kragen's or Harbor Freight tools for a decent price for most DIYers. Make sure to make plenty of sketches to make it easy to reassemble and inspect everything so it is safe to use. Please keep in touch and hope this helps.

No steam needs cleaning but can't find instructions on line


Try a solution of 1 tsp. white vinegar and fill the reservoir the rest of the way with water. Turn the iron on just until it heats up to high temperature and then turn it off. Let sit for a couple hours and drain (pour it out the top.) Fill and dump the water out a few more times. Hope that helps.

My iron is spitting out rust colored liquid. It is brand new. What can I do to solve this problem?


Pour the water out and refill with vinegar and let it steam all of it through the holes then fill with water and let it steam through the holes to rinse the vinegar out.

Where can I buy the mineral descaler which you fill with water and then pour into iron. Most of the hardware shops have stopped stocking it.


That product (several brands) is usually available at nearly all grocery stores, craft stores and any decent hardware store. They may not have a particular brand, but will have some form of it. CLR makes a good variation of it and is widely available. Farmerbear at FixYa.com

Iron spits out rusty water. The iron is a Rowenta


Fill it with a mix of 50% white vinegar and 50% water. Let it set for 30 minutes and steam it out for about 2 minutes. Unplug it and dump it. After it cools colpletely, fill it with water and steam it out. The rust is coming from your water supply, not the iron.

At high temp settings water leaks out of steam holes in bottom


You want to run the self-clean mode. Fill with water, then over a sink, with the iron facing down, press the self-clean button. Steam will eject, along with sediment and water deposits. You may have to repeat numerous times. The iron requires soft water, if you don't have soft water at the tap then buy bottled water at the grocery store to prevent this problem.

You can also buy a cleaning solution that you mix into the water reservoir, or you can make your own by filling the iron half-full of water then add white vinegar to the fill line, then perform the self-clean mode or steam mode over a sink.

Here is a Rowenta suggestions:

The iron is leaking.


Water: Use tap water in the iron. If tap water is hard or high in organic matter, we recommend using bottled spring water or mix tap water with distilled. Do NOT use 100% distilled water. Many softening systems may cause issues as well.
Auto-Off: If iron is equipped with auto off, you need to move iron or gently shake it an allow it to heat back up before beginning to iron.
Overuse of Burst of Steam: Allow more time between each burst of steam.

The Rowenta site does not list a manual for your older model, but here is their link:

Maybe the cap is coated with mineral deposits. Do you use ONLY DISTILLED WATER in the iron? If not, minerals from the water could be the cause. Try pouring some CLR or a similar product over the cap and see if that frees it up . If it does, pour some CLR into the iron's tank, and set it to the highest temperature setting. Run the iron over an old towel to help clean the steam vents. Then fill the tank with DISTILLED WATER and do the same proceedure two more times using DISTILLED WATER ONLY to flush out any remining CLR.

Mold


First with the iron cold fill the reservoir with white vinegar.  I would let this sit for a few hours and then pour the vinegar out of the iron. I would do this a couple of times until you see the mold is removed from reservoir. Next fill again with vinegar and run the iron on the steam setting, steaming a clean rag or towel until all of the vinegar is steamed out of the reservoir.  The vinegar will also remove any mineral deposits built up in the iron.
Next rinse the reservoir by filling it with water and emptying it completely a few times.  Follow this by filling it completely with water again and setting the iron to steam setting.  Use another clean rag or towel and steam it until all of the water has been steamed out of the reservoir.
In the future make sure to completely empty your iron after every use to prevent mineral build up and mold growth
