3. Getting started

3.1 Unpacking the cleaner

While you are unpacking the cleaner, check that all accessories have been included. If any items are missing, please contact your dealer.

If you notice any damage that has been caused in transit, please inform your dealer immediately.

Do not dispose of the packaging materials as domestic refuse. They can be recovered for use again. Take the packaging to an official collection point for recycling.

3.2 Attaching the accessories

• Firmly insert the modular accessory plug

(C6) into the socket (A1) above the handle on the main unit. Both lugs on the plug must lock into the cover for the main unit socket.

• The circular brush (E2) can be attached to the spot nozzle to obtain better cleaning results.Line up both grooves in the circular brush with the lugs on the spot nozzle and turn the brush clockwise as far as it will go.

• To detach the circular brush from the spot nozzle, turn the brush anti-clockwise and pull it off the nozzle.

Hot water can drip out of accessories while you are detaching them. Do not detach accessories while steam is being discharged

– danger of scalding!

• Attached the required accessory – spot nozzle (E1), hand nozzle (F1) or floor nozzle

(G1) – to the steam gun (C1) by pushing the tubular end of the accessory onto the steam gun. Push the accessory onto the steam gun as far as necessary for the release button

(C2) on the steam gun to lock into place.

• Use the extension tubes (D1) if required.

Attach one or both tubes onto the end of the steam gun. Push the required accessory onto the free end of the extension tube.

• To detach the accessories, press the release button and pull the items apart.

3.3 Filling up with water

• Unscrew the safety cap (A2) on the main unit.

• Pour a maximum of 2 litres of tap water into the boiler. With the cleaner standing on a horizontal surface, the boiler can be filled up to approx. 2 cm below the edge of the filler neck. Heating-up time can be shortened by using hot water.

Do not add pour any detergents or other additives into the boiler.

• Screw the safety cap back onto the cleaner.

3.4 Switching the cleaner ON

Do not switch the cleaner on if there is no water in the boiler, otherwise it could overheat. As a safety measure, the cleaner’s heater switches off automatically and the low-water warning lamp illuminates. In order to be able to use the cleaner again, wait approx. 10 minutes for it to cool down and then fill the boiler with water (see 3.3 “Filling up with water”).

• Plug the cleaner into a mains socket. Switch both the steam supply switch (A10) and the heater switch (A9) to ON.

The indicator lamps (A5, A6, A7) should illuminate.


3. Getting started

• When the orange lamp for the heater (A6) goes out again, the cleaner is ready for use.

When the appliance is switched on, do

NOT place in a vertical position. To prevent the appliance from overheating, a builtin safety device isolates the appliance and all indicator lights switch off. Place the appliance back in its original horizontal position. The indicator lights switch on again and you can continue working.

• Switch off the heater before moving the cleaner.

• When you are ready to start work with the cleaner, you must first release the locking mechanism (child lock (C4)) on the steam gun (C1), otherwise you will not be able to operate the steam switch (C3). Slide the locking mechanism forwards and you will then be able to press the steam switch.


Slide the locking mechanism towards the rear to engage the child lock whenever you are not using the steam gun.

• When you press the steam switch, steam is discharged from the nozzle. Begin by pointing the steam gun at a cloth until a steady flow of steam comes out of the nozzle.

• The heater is repeatedly switched on while you are using the cleaner, in order to maintain the pressure inside the boiler. At the same time the orange indicator lamp (A6) illuminates.

be discharged briefly after the steam switch

(C3) has been released, until the pressure in the steam hose has dropped. You can accelerate this process by briefly turning the handwheel (C7) forwards.

3.6 Refilling with water


When the water in the boiler has been used up, the red low-water warning lamp (A8) will illuminate. The safety cap (A2) cannot be opened while there is any pressure at all in the boiler.

• Turn off the heater switch but leave the steam supply switch on.

• Press the steam switch on the steam gun and hold it pressed until steam is no longer discharged from the nozzle. There will then be no pressure inside the boiler.

• Unscrew the safety cap from the cleaner.

If the cleaner has been in continuous use for a long time, the safety cap (A2) may be hot!

Caution: Never lift the cleaner by the handle unless the safety cap is in place!

• Pour a maximum of 2 litres of tap water into the boiler.

If the boiler is still hot, there is a risk that water will be squirted back while it is being poured into the boiler and cause scalding.

• Firmly screw the safety cap back onto the cleaner. Turn on the heater switch again.

When the heater indicator lamp goes out, the cleaner is ready for use again.

3.5 Regulating the volume of steam

Rotary knob for steam control (A4)

• You can adjust the steam quantity continuosly by turning the rotary knob (A4).

Handwheel for steam control (C7)

• At first, set the rotary knob (A4) to the maximum steam quantity.

• The amount of steam can be regulated according to requirement by adjusting the handwheel (C7) on the steam gun. When the wheel is turned forwards, a large amount of steam is discharged; when it is turned towards the rear, a small amount of steam is discharged.


When the handwheel is set for minimum steam, it is possible that steam will continue to

3.7 Switching the cleaner OFF

• Switch off both the heater and steam supply switches.

• Unplug the cleaner from the mains.

• Lift up the cover on the main unit socket (A1) and pull out the modular accessory plug


• Any remaining water can be left inside the cleaner.


3. Getting started

3.8 Transporting the unit

If you have been working with the extension tubes (D1) and the floor nozzle (G1), it is quite easy to transport the unit, e.g. up and down stairs.

Turn the heater OFF with switch (A9), stand the unit upright, and attach the extension tube to the retaining bracket on the underside of the main unit.

Note: The extension tube can only be attached

if the mains cable has not already been wound round the holder on the main unit.

3.9 Storing the unit

Place the hand nozzle, window nozzle, spot nozzle and other small parts into the accessory compartment (A11).

Wind the cable around the holder on the base of the main unit. Insert both extension tubes individually into the recesses in the base of the unit. Stick the floor nozzle with the accessory storage adaptor (J1) on a extension tube.

Ensure that the brushes are allowed to cool down without the bristles becoming deformed in the process.

Important: If you wish to leave the unused

water in the boiler until the next use, do not store the unit in the vertical position (safety cap may become stuck due to furring). If you wish to store the unit for a longer period of time or in the vertical position, please drain the water off completely.

4. Information on usage

4.1 Cleaning textiles

Before you use the steam cleaner on textiles including delicate fabrics like Dralon, velvet, leather and items protected by Scotch Guard or any similar substance, you should always test that the material is resistant to steam by applying it to a section not normally visible.

Apply steam to the concealed section and then leave it to dry. Check to see that the colour and shape have not been affected before moving to a visible area. In case of doubt it is always better to consult your steam cleaner dealer.

Use only the steam gun without attachments to apply steam from 30- 45 cm on these delicate fabrics, then wipe off with a cotton cloth.

4.2 Cleaning hard surfaces

Do not direct steam onto glued edges of objects, otherwise the edge strip could be become detached. Do not use the steam cleaner on wood or parquet floors that have not been sealed.

Some surfaces can change colour and texture when treated with steam. Consult the manufacturers recommendations first, and always test in a non visible place and then let it dry, to see whether changes in colour or textures occur. In case of doubt and on sensitive materials like coated or painted surfaces, wood, waxed marble etc. it is always better to ask your steam cleaner dealer for advice.

If steam is applied for too long, wax, furniture polish, plastic coating or paint could be lifted off or marks could be caused. You should therefore clean these types of surface with a separate cloth to which steam has been applied or very briefly with a double layer of cloth attached to the nozzle.

4.3 Cleaning glass surfaces

Do not apply steam jet directly to the sealed parts of the window round the frame, otherwise the seal could be damaged.

When the outside temperature is low, especially in winter, warm the window pane by applying a small amount of steam across the whole surface of the glass. This will even out any differences in temperature and avoid stresses in the glass. This is important because glass surfaces that are heated by varying amounts can shatter.


5. How to use the accessories

5.1 Steam gun (C1)

The steam gun can be used without any additional accessories.

Typical applications:

– eliminating odours and creases in clothing: hang the item of clothing up and apply steam from a distance of 10–20 cm.

– removing dust from plants: maintain a distance of 20–40 cm.

– dusting objects with a damp cloth: apply a small amount of steam to a cloth and wipe over the furniture.

• If there are traces of detergent or polish on the surface that you are cleaning (e.g. wax, liquid polish, etc.), this could result in streaks. As a rule these streaks disappear after the steam cleaner has been used several times.

Typical applications:

– all washable wall and floor coverings, e.g. stone floors, tiles and PVC floors.

5.2 Spot nozzle (E1)

The closer you hold the nozzle to the object being cleaned, the easier it is to remove the dirt.

Temperature and pressure are at their greatest immediately the steam is discharged from the nozzle.

Typical applications:

– locations that are difficult to access, such as corners and joints

– taps, drains wash-basins, WC, shower cabins

– blinds, radiators

– stainless steel, enamel surfaces

– dissolve stains

Apply vinegar to stubborn stains caused by scale and leave it to soak for approx. 5 min.

5.3 Floor nozzle (G1)

• Attach the floor cloth (G3) to the floor nozzle

(G1). Fold the cloth lengthways and place the floor nozzle on top. Pull the ends of the cloth one after the other under the retaining clips


5.4 Hand nozzle (F1)

Pull the terry-towelling slip-on (F2) over the hand nozzle (F1).

Typical applications:

– smaller, washable areas, such as kitchen surfaces made from plastic, tiled walls

– windows, mirrors

– furniture fabrics

– vehicle interiors, windscreens

– bath-tubs

5.5 Window nozzle (H1)

• Before you clean a glass surface with the window nozzle for the first time, go over it with the hand nozzle (F1) and terry-towelling slipon (F2) to remove any traces of grease.

• Apply steam evenly to the glass surface from a distance of approx. 20 cm. When you have done this, push the locking mechanism on the steam gun towards the rear (child lock) (C4) so that the steam switch (C3) cannot be pressed inadvertently. Squeegee the glass surface in straight lines from top to bottom. Wipe the rubber lip and the bottom edge of the window dry after each pass.

Typical applications:

– windows

– mirrors

– other glass surfaces

• To remove the cloth, press down on the retaining clips and pull it out.

• Turn the floor cloth over or replace it regularly. This will enable you to wipe up more dirt.

• Work on heavily soiled areas at a slower speed so that the steam has more time to act on the dirt.


5. How to use the accessories

5.5 Household iron

The household iron is available as a special accessory - see page 12

• Firmly insert the modular accessory plug on the iron connecting cable into the socket

(A1) above the handle on the main unit. Both lugs on the plug must lock into the cover for the main unit socket (A1).


• We recommend that you use the Kärcher

Ironing Board with active steam extraction.

The ironing board has been designed to match your new cleaner and it makes ironing considerably easier and faster to do. In any case, you should use an ironing board which is covered with a mesh-type underlay that enables steam to pass through.

• The temperature control should be set to at least ••• (steam mode) for ironing all types of material. The steam that is then discharged prevents the material from becoming too hot.

• The iron is ready for use as soon as the indicator lamp goes out. The face of the iron must be hot so that the steam does not condense to water and drip onto the item being ironed.

• When you press the switch on the iron, steam is discharged out of holes in the face of the iron. To set the iron so that steam is discharged continuously, push the switch towards the rear until it locks in place. If you briefly push the switch forwards, a shot of steam is discharged from the iron.

• Begin by directing the steam onto a piece of cloth until there is regular flow of steam out of the iron.

• The iron can be held upright to apply steam to curtains, dresses, etc.


• If you wish to iron without using steam, switch the heater switch to OFF. The steam supply switch must remain ON.

• Set the temperature control according to the type of fabric that you are going to iron. The symbols on the control have the following meanings: – Synthetic fibres:

– Wool:


– Linen:


5.7 Wallpaper remover

The wallpaper remover is available as a special accessory - see page 12

• Place the entire face of the wallpaper remover along the edge of a sheet of wallpaper.

Switch on the steam supply (C3) and allow the steam to penetrate the wallpaper until it is soaked through (approx. 10 seconds).

• Move the wallpaper remover to the next section to be removed, keeping the steam switch

(C3) pressed. Use a putty knife to lift the loosened wallpaper and pull it off the wall. Move the wallpaper across the wall a section at a time and pull the paper off in strips.

• The steam may not be able to readily penetrate woodchip wallpaper that has been painted over several times. In this case we recommend that you go over the wallpaper with a spiked roller before steam is applied.

5.8 Steam-rotary nozzle

The rotary nozzle is available as a special accessory - see page 12

• The rotary nozzle can be attached directly or with the extension tubes to the steam handgun, as required.

• Use the rotary nozzle for loosening stubborn dirt over large areas.


6. Maintenance

6.1 Cleaning the boiler


If you always use demineralised or distilled water, it will not be necessary to clean the boiler.

Rinsing out the boiler:

Rinse out the steam generator at most after every 5th fill-up if the hardness of water proves to be more than 1.8 mmol/l (corresponds to

10° dH). You can enquire about the hardness of water in your area from your water supply company or municipal public works.

• Fill the boiler with water and shake the cleaner vigorously. This will loosen any scale that has settled at the bottom of the boiler. Tilt the cleaner towards the corner with the funnel inlet

(A3) and pour out the water.

In order to avoid damage to the cleaner, only use products that have been approved by


• Fully dissolve the contents of one bag of

Kärcher Biological Decalcifier RM 511 in one litre of warm water.

• Pour this solution into the boiler and leave it to react for approx. 8 hours.

Do not screw the safety cap (A2) onto the cleaner while you are descaling the boiler. Do not use the cleaner if there is any descaling liquid left inside the boiler.

• After the period of soaking, pour the descaling solution out of the boiler. A small amount will remain inside, therefore you should flush the boiler out with cold water two or three times in order to remove all traces of the decalcifying agent.

• The steam cleaner is now ready for use again.

6.2 Care of accessories

• Allow all accessories to dry out thoroughly before you store them for use another time.

• Do not stand the floor nozzle (G1), hand nozzle (F1) and circular brush (E1) on their bristles while they are cooling down and drying out, otherwise they could become deformed.

• Floor cloth and terry-towelling slip-on have been pre-washed and can be used immediately with the steam cleaner.

• Dirty floor cloths and terry-towelling slip-ons can be placed in a washing machine at 60 °C and dried in a tumble dryer. Do not use a liquid softener as this would impair the ability of the cloths to pick up dirt.

6.3 What to do if a problem occurs

• If a problem occurs with your steam cleaner, contact your local Kärcher service agent

(see address list on backside).

• Unplug the cleaner from the mains electricity supply before you descale the boiler.

• Make sure that all traces of water are drained from the boiler.

• We recommend you use Kärcher Biological

Decalcifier RM 511 to descale the boiler.

This biological decalcifying agent is based on citric acid and is therefore entirely biologically degradable.


7. Safety devices

This steam cleaner is equipped with several safety devices which provide multiple levels of safety. The most important safety devices are described below.

7.1 Pressure controller

The pressure controller maintains the level of pressure inside the boiler as constant as possible. When the maximum operating pressure inside the boiler of 3.2 bar is reached, the heater is switched off. When steam is drawn off and the pressure drops, the heater is switched on again.

7.2 Low-water thermostat

As the water in the boiler is used up, the temperature of the heater increases. The low-water thermostat switches the heater off and the red low-water warning lamp illuminates. The heater is prevented from switching on again until the boiler has either cooled down or has been refilled with water.

7.3 Safety thermostat

If the low-water thermostat fails and the cleaner overheats, the safety thermostat will switch off the cleaner. Contact your local Kärcher service agent so that the safety thermostat can be reset.

7.4 Safety cap

The safety cap seals in the steam pressure as it builds up inside the boiler. If the pressure controller is defective and the steam pressure inside the boiler rises above 5.7 bar, an overpressure valve opens inside the safety cap and steam is discharged into the open. Contact your local Kärcher service agent before you attempt to use the cleaner again.

8. General information
