Frequently Asked Questions

  • The safety cap may not be able to be removed due to the steam cleaner not being de-pressurised after use.  To depressurize straight after use, switch off the machine and then switch on the steam feed (on max), press the steam button down until the steam and pressure has released, when the machine is cool, the cap can be opened. Pressure may remain in the unit if left to cool, to release the pressure, the machine will need to heat up first.  The cap may also be difficult to remove because of limescale build up, please see previous question on how to descale your Steam Cleaner.

  • Instructions for De-scaling your Kärcher Steam Cleaner.

    •Step 1. Purchase a Kärcher de-scaling agent, (Argos code 607/6997)

    •Step 2. Dissolve the descaling stick into 1 litre of warm water.

    •Step 3. Pour the solution into the boiler and allow it to react for approximately 8 hours. Do not screw the safety lock onto the appliance while you are descaling.

    •Step 4. Create a separate solution for the steam cap.

    •Step 5. Clean the threads on the cap with a toothbrush and rub Vaseline around once clean.

    •Step 6. Once the descaling is completed, empty the solution from the machine. A small amount of solution will remain inside the boiler. Rinse the boiler 2 or 3 times with clean, cold water to remove any residues of the descaler.

  • The safety cap may not be able to be removed due to the steam cleaner not being de-pressurised after use.  To depressurize straight after use, switch off the machine and then switch on the steam feed (on max), press the steam button down until the steam and pressure has released, when the machine is cool, the cap can be opened.

  • When the steam cleaner is first turned on some water will be produced, while the attachments and accessories are still cold and this will condensate the initial steam produced. This may occur for a couple of minutes. Ensure the floor cloth isn’t attached to the floor tool until the machine is at full temperature and only steam is being produced, otherwise your cloth may become saturated with water.   The water tank may also be over full. Ensure that the tank is only 3/4 full, which allows steam to be generated in the boiler. Ensure that the machine has reached operating pressure, if not, wait until the light indicates that the machine is ready. Ensure that the controller is set to steam mode. Your steam cleaner may also need to be descaled.

  • When first pulling the trigger gun of your steam cleaner, water may be produced instead of steam. This can be due to water sitting in the pipes from previous uses. Continue to pull the trigger over a sink until the water stops coming out and only steam flows through.
