It sounds like the iron that I had about 8 years ago. I would return it before the warranty runs out and get your money back. I would recommend a phillips G4430. you will love it

The reservoir of your iron needs cleaning if it looks as though small deposits are being left in the small holes on the soleplate. Typically, the deposits are minerals from the water that you are using in the reservoir. The deposits may have a white color, and they may resemble salt.
Cleaning the reservoir requires the use of white vinegar and a clean rag. Fill the reservoir of a cold iron at least one fourth of the way with white vinegar. Turn the iron on and place it on the steam setting. Steam iron the clean rag until the reservoir is completely empty.
If the deposits are still visible to you, you will need to fill the reservoir with clean water and steam iron a rag again. If the deposits are still visible to you after this, you will need to repeat the process with vinegar until the deposits are no longer apparent.
Rinse the reservoir thoroughly with clean water by filling it completely and then emptying it completely. In order to avoid mineral buildup and deposits, use only distilled or purified water in the reservoir. If you continue to use tap water, simply remember to clean the reservoir periodically.
Vinegar has a strong smell associated with it, especially when it is heated. Ventilate the area where you are working as much as possible, by opening windows, turning on vents or fans, or keeping the door open.
The water you use to fill your iron is causing this problem. Once you clean it use distilled water available by the gallon at the grocery store. Joe

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore iron
RE: "I am not having trouble with the steam in my iron. The problem is water
leaking from the access to the reservoir. I only tried using lesser
amounts of water and making sure the cover is secure. I do not know
what else to do."
Hello, welcome to Fixya!
Your Kenmore iron 80598 is having a leak because there is a hole somewhere on water reservoir.
Make sure the iron is not plugged into the wall. Get a screw driver disassemble the iron just to take a close loot at the reservoir in order to get the exact spot where the water is leaking from.
The moment you get the spot, click the spot to make it very dry. Now apply super glue on the spot that is leak. You can also put sand on the super glue before it gets dry.
That is, apply the super glue on he leaking spot, before the glue gets dry on the spot, put some sand on the glue liquid. This will make it very difficult for water to come out from that spot again.
I hope the above makes sense to you.
