    Sounds like the inside seal on the water reservoir is leaking & needs to be replaced. This will likely need to be replaced by a service dealer.

    Have you tried cleaning it out like they suggest or using their cleaning solution for your iron. Remember to always empty it out when not in use. You can try heating it up and then turn it off and over sink pressing the steam button allow it to empty. It will be hot since it is steam and I would not fill it up instead do it more than once. I use a pot holder to protect my hand and arm. Once cleaned and it stops leaking make sure to empty it like this every time that you use it. I don't have that issue with mine but I usually go through all the water in it. If I have water left then I do this plus it opens up any clogged holes from hard water.

    I have wanted to get a new Rowenta (to replace my old one)... but all the reviews say that leaking is a chronic problem... my old one never leaked... I miss it.

    I have a Rowenta iron. It has a cleaning setting. Fill the reservoir all the way up. Plug iron in by a sink. Turn iron on high heat. when the light goes out, turn the steam switch all the way over to the clean setting. Now hold the iron over the sink...occasionally hit the shot of steam button. Continue until all water is gone. This iron specifically says to use tap water. Hope this helps. I love my iron.

    I love my iron and don't want to buy another. I just use it without water and keep a small spray bottle nearby as I iron!

    Replace the water in your iron with half/half water vinegar. The let it steam outside ! in the air : watch out for the steam on your hands or face. Then replace that with normal water and iron on a cloth you can throw away. Normally it wil still leak but then the spots will be brown. For the next few times, think to begin your ironing on that cloth before you start on your good things. It will get less. This trick worked for me.

    You filled it to full with water or you holes are clogged. Clean with pipe cleaners.
