Questions & Answers


Is it normal for this steamer to spray out large amount of water when idle for more then five min...

Asked by Mark April 16, 2021

Any time the machine sits for a bit, steam in the line will condense into water and will exit the sprayer as such. You will usually see this when when using it for the first time since you last used it, but it would also occur if it sits for a few minutes between uses. If the amount you're seeing seems larger than an ounce or two of water, it might be more than normal- in this case, please call our customer care line at 800-537-4129 or reach us at karcher-help.com

Can this be ised on fiberglass tubs/showers? Will it remove soap scum?

Asked by Terri July 8, 2020

Hi Terri, yes the SC 3 Steam Cleaner can be used on tubs/showers. If the soap scum on your tub/shower has been built up over a long period of time, we recommend first removing the outer layer with the detergent of your choice and a good scrub. The SC 3 will then be able to finish the job for a sparkling tub/shower that looks just like new! I hope this helps, Karl from Customer Care

Works but it is weak
I wanted this to get out grime that I could not get with elbow grease. Unfortunately, this steam cleaner just makes cleaning easer because there is no scrubbing needed but it does not do a better job then you could do with just a brush and hot water. The hose is so long that it makes it less powerful. I hope figure out a way to cut the hose in half to make it more powerful. It is not powerful enough because of the length of the hose. Also be sure to use distilled water to prevent build up.

Response from Karcher TeamFeb 1, 2021
Hello from Karcher and thank you for taking the time to reach out with your review! Please note that the SC 3 EasyFix is not suitable for use as a clothing steamer. We also recommend utilizing the continuous fill feature of the SC 3 EasyFix to make sure you have steam for as long as your need it on every job. I hope this helps, Karl from Customer Care karcher
Does what it is supposed to do
I have used a canister steam cleaner for years, so I knew what to expect. Comparable units produce lots of hot, disinfecting steam that do a great job cleaning. So I will address the Karcher's pros and cons. The description never does say how hot the steam is. Measuring with an instant-read thermometer, the steam never registered over 175 degrees, and it jumped between that and 135. 140 is required to kill germs. The cord is too short. The plug does not have a groove to attach it to the cord. Tool storage is OK. The water tank is SMALL . It requires frequent filling. I have to keep a pitcher nearby and watch the refill alert. This is the biggest drawback. It's nice that i don't have to shut it off to refill, but it's annoying that it steams for less than 10 minutes. I refilled it at least 4 times just to clean the shower. It is small and maneuverable. The attachments are adequate and attach easily. The handle has to be squeezed continuously to produce steam. I don't mind this, but might be a problem if your grip is not good. I think it's better than having to flip a switch or push a button to turn off steam. Probably safer, too. Makes quick work of soap scum. I didn't have any mold to test it on. It has two steam levels.
