I have the same unit and had a similar problem. If yours is the same as mine, look at the top of the water heater unit. The center spigot is for the for the how water outflow which is connected to surgical type rubber tubing. The hot water eventually dried out the tubing and it cracks, causing it to leak. I had to cut out the decayed portion and replace it. Franke sent me a replacement kit at no charge but I did replace the fitting on top of the unit. The fitting is a standard nipple that any HW store should carry. Mine is a female-to-female reducer that then mates to a nylon barbed fitting which the tubing goes into. Importantly the Franke supplied kit has nylon ratcheting hose clamps that keep the tubing in place as well as a barbed union with hose clamps to join to the exisiting hose feed (to the faucet).

Hope this helps! I'm now struggling with the hot water tap leaking after using it. It seems to stop after a while but it drips for some time. If you can help me there that would be great!

SOURCE: Particles floating in whirlpool filtered water.

okay - we have had this same problem for around 6 weeks - We called a service repairman to come out and he said that these "floaties" are harmless bacteria. We should disconnect the filter and flush the system by using 1 gallon of water a day (wasting it) after the chlorine in the water is allowed to build up again then the "floaties"- bacteria- will go away---- gross :-( We will see if it works---

SOURCE: Hello. I recently

If you can find a hose that will fit the water line you can flush it out. But the most likely problem is that the filter that you bought was defective and the white particles are coming for it. If you can test it without the filter, to see if the water is clear or not, will tell you whether you should take the filter back and complain.

It sounds like you have a bad temp control board. You may need to replace it.

Also check for sure that the anode rod working properly.
Good Luck.

My little butler has started spitting hot water when in use.The filter is new and the temp setting has been turned down. Any ideas?


The seals have gone. This is typical of any hot water dispenser that directly heats the water while it is under pressure. The water expands and eventually ruptures the seals. Typical life time of this type of water heater is 2 years. Through it away only this time buy the non-pressurize type of instant water heater. Search the web and you will find a few brands.
