High Pressure Cleaners (Purchased after 1st October 2023) will qualify to receive an extended warranty of an additional 2 years (including any

accessories packaged with original invoiced machine). To be eligible to claim for this extended warranty the machine must be registered within 60 days

of purchase (refer Service/Warranty section of website) and a logbook of the scheduled maintenance and repairs must be maintained for the duration of

the warranty period. This logbook should include the date of each service or repair, the nature of the service or repair, and completed by an Authorised

Kärcher Service Agent, including the name of the agent who has completed the service or repair. To find a list of Authorised Service agents, please visit:

This logbook will serve as proof of regular maintenance and must be in accordance with the required routine maintenance checks as listed in your

service manual handbook. This logbook will help determine whether any issues that may arise during the warranty period result from a manufacturing

defect, improper use, or a lack of regular maintenance.

Failure to maintain this logbook may affect warranty cover.


Warranty Does Not Cover:

• A defect caused by normal wear and tear;

• Where RM110 and RM111 was not used to maintain the heating coil; or

• The additional 2 year warranty on the mild steel coil. This item is covered for 2 years only.



If a defect appears in the Product before the end of the warranty period and Kärcher finds the Product to be defective in materials or workmanship,

Kärcher will, in its sole discretion, either:

a. Replace or repair the Product or the defective part of the Product free of charge, or

b. Arrange the Product or the defective part of the Product to be repaired and placed by a qualified repairer free of charge.


Kärcher reserves the right to replace defective parts of the Product with parts or components of similar quality, grade and composition where an identical part or component is not available. Goods presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type instead of being repaired.


Warranty Claims

a. If a fault covered by the Warranty occurs, the purchaser must first contact Kärcher or an authorised Kärcher distributor.

b. Any Warranty claim must be accompanied by proof of purchase and details of the alleged defect.

c. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by Kärcher, the customer must pay the cost of transporting the Product to and from Kärcher or Kärcher’s

authorised repair agent and any related insurance cost. If Kärcher accepts the customer’s claim under this Warranty, Kärcher will reimburse the

customer for its transportation costs.

d. This Warranty is limited to defects in the materials or workmanship in the Product and does not cover expendable parts or the replacement of

parts due to fair wear and tear.
