There are 2 filters, make sure they are clean, one is on the tank lid, the other is from the bottom, it is red, pull it out and clean it. If yours has a foam filter on the tank lid covering the yellow ball, make sure there is at least a 1/4 in. gap from the top. Also make sure that the lid in on and secured tightly.

SOURCE: Wont heat up
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.

SOURCE: Red float keeps popping up
You need to clean the debris channel. Put the machine on a waist high flat surface open it and remove the dirty water container. You will see three vertical screws which lock the scroll above the motor to the clear plastic panel at the front of the machine. Open these screws and remember which one belongs where. To the left of the scroll, there is a black horizontal screw which should also be removed. If you look closely, you will see the right hand of the first three screws (brushes face to your right hand) has also released the plexiglass (clear plastic screen where you see the dirt and soap flowing at the left side. Now put the machine on its side and look at the front edge of the plexiglass just ahead of the brushes. There are two screws which have to be removed - one on each side and bingo the plexiglass shape lifts clear. Clean out the muck, check the scroll channel for similar muck and reassemble.
The muck is plugging the dirt path and fooling the red float that the tank is full.
Re assemble the reverse of the disassembly procedure. Do not use a power screwdriver as you will likely shear the screw heads.
