Safety instructions
 Danger
„ Never touch the mains plug and the
socket with wet hands.
„ The appliance must not be used if the
power cord or important parts of the appliance, e.g. high-pressure hoses, trigger gun or safety devices are damaged.
„ Check the power cord and mains plug
for damage before every use. If the
power cord is damaged, please arrange
for it to be replaced immediately by an
authorised repair agent or a skilled
„ Check the high-pressure hose for damage before every use. Please arrange
for the immediate replacement of a
damaged high-pressure hose.
„ The appliance may not be used in areas

KÄRCHER; or, as an alternative, a system
separator as per EN 12729 Type BA. Water
flowing through a system separator is considered non-drinkable.
Dry runs lasting longer than two minutes
lead to damages to the high pressure
pump. If the appliance does not build up
pressure within two minutes, switch it off
and proceed as instructed in the Chapter
"Help with faults".
