Franke Bern Tap Valve
In recent installation guides this valve 3308R (133.0150.219 Cold /130.0120.220 Hot) is called 3794R (133.0358.053 Hot /133.0358.055 Cold).
It is the same valve.
Measurements: Splines: 28 / Nut Height: 9mm
Please Note: Some customers find it difficult to remove the earlier SP3308 Valve (133.0150.219 Cold /130.0120.220 Hot) which has 2 flat sides on the nut. You can buy a special tool from the Franke Bern Manufacturer to remove it here.
The Hot and Cold Valve are not interchangeable as one opens clockwise and the other opens anti-clockwise.
Replace if your Tap is dripping from the Spout. Here is our Guide: 7 easy steps to replace Kitchen Tap Valve.
Recently we have noticed that the new valve is a little stiffer to push the handle onto. We have reported this back to the manufacturer but they assure us that there have been no changes of any consequence and it is just to do with the tolerance on the machining of the valves. If this does occur we would simply recommend ensuring that your own handle is clear inside of any residual debris and that you push the handle on and off the new valve a few times to loosen the splines slightly. You won’t damage your handle. Tightening your valve: We would also recommend that you do NOT overtighten this valve. As a rule of thumb, tighten as far as physically possible by hand, and then tighten 1/4 turn with an adjustable spanner.
