Care and maintenance

Cleaning appliance with rinsing process
ATTENTION

through with the cleaning station and fresh water. This
is the best way of cleaning the appliance. It prevents the
build-up of dirt and bacteria or unpleasant odours.

do so.
Illustration
 Place the appliance in the cleaning station.
 For the rinsing process, fill the fresh water tank with
cold or lukewarm tap water to completely remove
detergent residue from the suction ducts and slits
on the suction head.
 Insert the fresh water container into the appliance.
Illustration
 Remove the waste water tank and empty it.
See Chapter "Emptying the waste water tank".
 Fill the measuring cup with 200 ml water.
 Fill the cleaning station with water.
 If necessary, add appropriate KÄRCHER cleaning
agents for the rinsing procedure.
 To switch on the appliance press the on/off switch.
 Allow the appliance to run for 30-60 seconds until
the water is completely drawn out of the cleaning
station.

ual moisture is left over in the cleaning rollers.

Cleaning the rollers
ATTENTION
The fresh and waste water tanks must be emptied be-
fore the appliance is set down on the ground for roller
removal. This prevents any fluids from leaking out of the
tank when it is laid on the ground.

In the case of heavy contamination, clean the cleaning
rollers separately.

 Wash the cleaning rollers in the washing machine
up to 60°C.

Do not use any soft detergents when cleaning in the
washing machine. This avoids causing damage to the
microfibres. It also preserves the high performance lev-
els of the cleaning rollers.
The cleaning rollers are not suitable for the tumble dry-
er.
 After cleaning, allow the rollers to air-dry.
Illustration
 Screw the cleaning rollers onto the threaded rod up
to the mechanical stop.
 Pay attention to the colour-codes on the inside of
the roller and roller holder on the appliance (e.g.
blue should match up with blue).
 After the installation, check to ensure that the
cleaning rollers sit snugly.
Cleaning the suction head
ATTENTION
In the case of heavy contamination or if parts such as
stones or splinters get into the suction head, it will need
to be cleaned. While the appliance is working, these
parts will cause a rattling noise or will block up the suc-
tion ducts, diminishing suction performance.
