If your Franke Verbier Tap is dripping from the Spout then you might need to change your Valves.  Here is our Guide 7 Easy Steps to replace Kitchen Tap Valve.

The newer version of this valve has 6 sides on the nut so is easier to deal with (or use a 14 size hex key). Only buy the Removal Tool if you have the earlier 3308R Valve & can’t remove the valve. This Tool is of no use if you have the later 3794R Valve.

When your Tap was first produced the manufacturer of your Tap used the SMR valve 3308R.  This has 2 flat sides on the nut (SP3308 (aka 3308R).  The manufacturer has also used the same valve, albeit with a six sided nut, 3794R.  The only difference between these two valves is cosmetic i.e they both have same crucial measurements and are interchangeable i.e you can use a 3308R where you have a 3794R and vice versa.  We currently stock both genuine SMR valves and dependent on stock levels, if you order the SMR Mini Valve you might receive either the 3308R or the 3794R.  The 3308R currently in stock has a white seal rather than a red or blue (the Hot side has a nick all the way around the nut to distinguish it from the Cold).  All valves are labelled by us before shipping.  The Hot opens clockwise and the Cold opens anti-clockwise.

Check which Valve is in your own tap before removing. You need to use the correct sized tool or socket to remove the old valve from your Tap. You do not want to damage the shape of the valve in your tap and be unable to remove it at all. Depending on when your Tap was produced you might have either the SMR 3308R or the SMR 3794R Valve in your Tap. Why is this relevant? Some customers have reported difficulty removing the earlier 3308R valve. You can try a mechanics long socket and ratchet tool to remove the Valve from this Tap, or a 12mm spanner, OR We have a specially designed SP3308 Valve Removal Tool from the Tap Manufacturer to remove the earlier 3308R valve. This Tool will NOT remove the later 6 sided valve 3784R. The later Valve 3794R, can be removed with a spanner or a size 14 Hex Key. Removing your own Handle will tell you WHICH valve you have. Here is our Guide How to remove the Handle on your Kitchen Tap.

Here below is example of the later valve 3794r (SP3794) which is now the replacement for the SP3308(3308R). If your own valve inside your tap has these 6 sides, then the removal tool will NOT be of any use so do NOT buy it.

Be careful not to force any tool on this valve and thereby damage it so much that you cannot then remove it with the correct fitting tool. Whichever Valve is in your Tap, you will receive the current 3794R (six sided valve) as the replacement as the earlier 3308R Valve has been discontinued. This is a change by the Manufacturer of your Tap (not us). No Brass Bush is required with this Tap Valve.   Measurements: Height 38mm Diameter at thread: 20mm, Splines: 28 Nut Height: 9mm

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 over-tighten 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.

 
The Hot and Cold Valve are not interchangeable as the Hot opens clockwise and the Cold opens anti-clockwise.
