Before starting up your machine 
please check it carefully for any 
defects. If you fi nd any, do not 
start up your machine and con-
tact your Gerni  distributor.

Especially check:

 The insulation of the electric 

cable should be faultless 
and without any cracks. If the 
electric cable is damaged, an 
authorized Gerni  distributor 
should replace it.


 High pressure jets can be 

dangerous. Never direct the 
water jet at persons, pets, 
live electrical equipment or 
the machine itself.

  Never try to clean clothes or 

footwear on yourself or other

4.7 Stationary use

If mounting a special wall hook 
(not standard), the pressure 
washer can be used as a sta-
tionary solution meaning that it 
can be operated while hanging 
on the wall.

Only mount the wall hook on a 
sturdy wall. Adjust the length 
of the screws and size of rawl-
plugs to the type of wall. 

On the wall hook garden/rim 
brush (a) foam sprayer (b),  
Click & Clean brush (c) and 
Click & Clean nozzles (d) can 
be stored.

5 Working 


5.1 General 

Effi cient high presure cleaning is achieved by following a few guide-
lines, combined with your own personal experience of specifi c 
cleaning tasks. Accessories and detergents, when correctly cho-
sen, can increase the effi ciency of your pressure washer. Here is 
some basic information about cleaning.

5.1.1  Detergent and foam

Foam or detergent should be applied onto dry surfaces so that the 
chemical product is in direct contact with the dirt. Detergents are 
applied from bottom to top, for example on a car bodywork, in order 
to avoid "super clean" areas, where the detergent collects in higher 
concentration and streams downwards. Let the detergent work for 
several minutes before rinsing but never let it dry on the surface be-
ing cleaned. 


It is important that the detergents do not dry up. 

Otherwise the surface  that has to be cleaned can be da maged.

5.1.2 Mechanical effect 

In order to break down tough layers of dirt, additional mechanical 
effect may be required. Special wash brushes offer this supplemen-
tary effect that cuts through dirt (especially by car washing).

6  After using your pressure washer

6.1  Storing the washer

The machine should be sto-
red in a frost-free room!

Pump, hose and accessories 
should always be emptied of 
water prior to storing as follows:

1. Stop the machine (press the 

start/stop switch “


” (1) and 

detach water hose and ac-

2. Restart the machine and 

activate the trigger. Let the 
machine run until no more 
water runs through the spray 

3. Stop the machine, unplug 

and wind up hose and cable. 

4. Place spray handle, nozzles 

and other accessories in the 
holders of the machine.

Should the machine by mistake 
be frozen, it will be necessary 
to check it for damage.



Frost damages are not 
 covered by the  guarantee!

Always disconnect 

the electrical plug from the 
socket prior to maintenance or 

To ensure a long and problem 
free working life, please take 
the following advice:

 Wash out water hose, high 

pressure hose, spray lance 
and accessories before 

 Clean the connectors of dust 

and sand. Make sure that 
no sand or dirt is blocking 
the movement of the button 
on the Click & Clean spray 

 Rinse the detergent spraying 

attachment after use.

 Clean the nozzles.

Any repair should always be 
made in an  authorized work-
shop with original spare parts.

6.3  Storage of accessories

The standard accessories 
(spray gun/spray lance (a), 
nozzles (b) foam sprayer (c)) 
can be stored on the pressure 

The nozzle cleaning tool (d) 
and a Click & Clean brush 
(e) can also be stored on the 

6.2  Winding up of electric  

cable and high pressure  

To avoid accidents, the electric 
cable and the high pressure 
hose should always be wound 
carefully up.

1. Wind up the electric cable on 

the appropriate hooks.

The high pressure washer 
comes in two models: A) with 
hook for storage of high pres-
sure hose (14) - B) with a hose 
reel (13).

7.1  Cleaning of water inlet  

fi lter

Clean the water inlet fi lter 
regularly once a month or more 
frequently according to use. 
Carefully loosen the fi lter with a 
pair of pliers and clean it. Check 
that it is intact before re-mount-
ing it. 

The inlet fi lter must always be 
fi tted inside the water inlet pipe 
to fi lter out sand, limestone and 
other impurities, as they will 
damage the pump valves.


Failure to fi t the fi lter 

will invalidate the guarantee.

7.2 Cleaning of nozzle 

A clogging up in the nozzle 
causes a pump pressure which 
is too high. This is why cleaning 
is required immediately.
1. Stop the machine and dis-

connect the  nozzle. 

2. Clean the nozzle.



The cleaning tool (11) 

should only be used when 
the nozzle is detached!

3. Flush the nozzle backwards 

with water.

7.3  Cleaning of machine  


The machine should be kept 
clean so as to let cooling air 
pass freely through the ma-
chine vents.

7.4 Greasing of couplings

To ensure an easy connec-
tion and that o-rings do not dry 
up, the couplings should be 
greased regularly.
