1  Safety Precautions and Warnings

Before starting up 
your high-pres-
sure washer for 
the fi rst time, this 
instruction manual 

must be read through carefully. 
Save the instructions for later 

Safety instructions 
marked with this 
symbol must be 
observed to pre-

vent danger to persons.

This symbol is 

used to mark 

safety instruc-

tions that must 

be observed to 

prevent damage to the 

 machine and its performance.

This symbol 
indicates tips 
and instructions 

to simplify work and to ensure  
safe operation.

Do not let children or people 
who have not read the instruc-
tion manual ope rate the ma-

This appliance is not intended 
for use by children or other 
persons without assistance or 
supervision if their physical, 
sensory or mental capabili-
ties prevent them from using it 
safely. Children should be su-
pervised to ensure that they do 
not play with the appliance.

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 

  Hold the spray lance fi rmly 

with both hands. The spray 
lance is affected by a thrust 
of up to 16.4 N during ope-

safety of the appliance.

  Disconnect from electrical 

power supply before carrying 
out user maintenance.

  To ensure the appliance 

safety only use original spare 
parts from the manufacturer 
or approved by the manufac-



High pressure 

hoses, fi ttings and couplings 
are important for the safety 
of the appliance. Only use 
hoses, fi ttings and couplings

This high pressure washer 
must not be used at tempera-
tures below 0°C.


Never let any persons stay 
under the product when 
stored on the wall.


Inadequate extension cables 
can be dangerous. 

If an exten-

sion cord is used, it shall be 
suitable for outdoor use, and 
the connection has to be kept 
dry and off the ground. It is 
 recommended that this is ac-
complished by means of a ca-
ble reel which keeps the socket 
at least 60 mm above the 
ground.  Cables on reels should 
always be completely unwound 
to prevent the cable from over-

  If the electric cable is 

 damaged, it must be re-
placed by the manufacturer 
or his service agent or simi-
larly qualifi ed person in order 
to avoid a hazard.

Mains power connection

The following should be ob-
served when  connecting the 
high pressure washer to the 
electric installation:

  Only connect the machine to 

an installation with earth con-

  The electric installation shall 

be made by a certifi ed elec-
trician and comply with IEC 

  It is strongly recommended 

that the electric supply to this

mains  according to regula-

  Inlet hose can be connected 

to the water mains with a 
max. inlet pressure of 10 bar.

IMPORTANT! Only use wa-
ter without any impurities.

sediment in the inlet water (i.e. 
from your own well), an addi-
tional fi lter should be mounted.

Safety devices

Locking device on spray handle 

(see illustration at the end 

of this manual)


The spray handle features a 
locking device. When the button 
is activated, the spray handle 
cannot be ope rated. 

Thermal sensor:

A thermal sensor protects the 
motor against overloading. The 
machine will restart after a few 
minutes when the thermal sen-
sor has cooled.

Pressure safety device

An integrated hydraulic safety 
valve protects the system from 
excessive pressure.

5  Fields of application and working    

5.1 General 

Effi cient high presure cleaning is achieved by following a few 
guidelines, combined with your own personal experience of spe-
cifi c cleaning tasks. Accessories and detergents, when correctly 
chosen, 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 being 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 supple-
mentary effect that cuts through dirt (especially by car washing).

6  After using your pressure washer

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 
up carefully.

1. Wind up the electric cable on 

the appropriate hooks. Built 
in clip ensures that the cable 
will not unwind.

  The lower hook can be 

turned to release the electric 

2. Wind the high pressure hose 

up on the hose reel.

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 (turn the 

start/stop switch (1) to posi-
tion “


” and detach water 

hose and accessory.

2. Restart the machine and 

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

3. Stop the machine and un-

plug. Wind the electric cable 
round the hooks placed on 
the side of the machine.

4. Separate spray handle and 

high pressure hose.

5. Coil the high pressure hose 

up on the hose reel.

6. Place spray handle, nozzles 

and other ac ces so ries 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!

6.3  Storage of accessories

The standard accessories 
(spray handle, spray lance,  
nozzles and nozzle cleaning 
tool) can be stored on the pres-
sure washer.


background image



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 off water hose, high 

pressure hose, spray lance 
and accessories before 

 Clean the connectors of dust 

and sand. 

 Clean the nozzles.

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

7 Maintenance 

7.1  Cleaning of water inlet  

fi lter

Clean the water inlet fi lter regu-
larly once a month or more fre-
quently according to use. Care-
fully loosen the fi lter with a pair 
of pliers and clean it. Check that 
it is intact before re-mounting 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 

Debris in the nozzle results 
in reduced water fl ow and ex-
cessive pressure. It should be 
cleaned immediately.
1. Stop the machine and dis-

connect the  nozzle. 

2. Clean the nozzle.



The cleaning tool (10) 

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 easy connection and 
that o-rings do not dry up, the 
couplings should be greased
