Franke 1988040 Basic Plumbing Questions and Answers

Question: The tap is dripping from the handle. Will a replacement 1988040 Franke lever cartridge stop the dripping?
Answer: Yes, the Franke 1988040 can.

Question: How do I remove the handle to replace the 1988040 Franke cartridge?
Answer: It will depend on the tap model you have. The grub screw can be

– at the back of the lever handle (it can be exposed or hidden under a circular screw cap);
– or hidden under the red and blue indice.

Once you locate the screw, loosen it to separate the handle from the tap. Then use a spanner to remove the retaining nut and pull the Franke 1988040 cartridge out.

Question: I plan to replace the Franke 45mm tap cartridge myself. Can you give me some advice?
Answer: Yes, we can give you some basic tap repair tips.

1. Always turn off the tap’s hot and cold water supply.
2. Remember the order of the parts you remove. It has to be returned in reverse order.

3. Greasing the seals of the Franke 1988040 will protect it from early deterioration. Only silicone-based grease formulated for plumbing purposes must be used.
Please refer to the “Other Items” section below to see the fast-selling grease we carry.

4. The handle must be in the “on” position as you screw back the retaining screw. This will mitigate the pressure from the Franke tap cartridge bottom seals.

Question: I’ve removed the cartridge and the diameter is smaller than 45mm. Is it okay to use the Franke 1988040?
Answer: Unfortunately, the 1988040 Franke replacement valve is not suitable for the tap you have.
