Question about Karcher DE4002 Steam Vacuum
Hi, I have recently had my karcher 501 vapour rapid steam cleaner's tank replaced. I have used it trwice with no worries, now the low water indicator light light comes on as soon as I turn it on. The tank is full. Also the middle light that indicates the machine is ready to use does not come on at all.
Please help as I am sick of throwing service money away again and again.
I know that Karchers steam cleaners have had issues with the thermal overload. I have repaired Karcher machines that got turned on with no to little water in the tank and it would heat up really fast and trip the thermal overload. The thermal overload is to reset it self when it cools down but the problem has been the thermal overloads get stuck and dont reset. When they stick, they will give the same signs you have said. In those cases the thermal overload has needed replaced. The thermal overload did its job to trip, but it fails when reseting. I understand you don't want to throw more money into it, but that is the only thing you can do. You can get the part and do it your self, but they are tricky machines to get into and you dont want to break something trying to get in. Hope this helped.
