My Franke Tap is dripping

nIf you have a Franke tap that is leaking, dripping, or not functioning properly, it may be time to replace some of its parts.

Here’s how to fix your Franke tap with genuine Franke tap parts:

1. Identify the problem:

Before you can fix your tap, you need to identify the problem, and here are the most common faults :

  • Is your Franke Tap dripping from the tip of the spout (aerator end) or Handle?  Answer : You need to replace your Valves / Cartridges depending on the model type.

3.Turn off the water supply:

Before you begin any repairs, turn off the water supply to your tap. This will prevent any water from flowing while you work on the tap.

4. Disassemble the tap using our DIY Guides on the part you purchased.

We have guides up on every product you buy so that you can access the specific guide you require to do the task in hand .

Our other piece of general advice is to always use the correct size allen key or screwdriver (depending on how your Tap Handle is fixed to your Tap ) to remove the handle and any other parts that need to be replaced.  We have had customers ruin handles because they used the wrong sized allen key to loosen a handle grub screw. Again, we advise the correct size allen key needed for each task with a link to buy from us.

Be careful not to damage any of the parts as you remove them.  Lay them on a clean towel to prevent any scratches.

5. Replace the parts with your new Genuine Franke Parts :

Once you have removed the old parts, replace them with the genuine Franke tap parts. Make sure they are installed correctly and securely.

6. Reassemble the tap:

Once you have replaced the parts, reassemble the tap in the reverse order that you disassembled it. Make sure everything is tightened and secure.

7.Turn on the water supply:

Once you have reassembled the tap, turn on the water supply and test the tap to make sure it is functioning properly. Check for leaks, drips, and proper water pressure.
