Question about Home

1 Answer

We have just had our brand new Franke KBV 651 sink installed. However we are having prblems with the quarter turn plug. This no longer works. We have taken it apart and the plastic bayonet (lugs) seam deformed as if they have been squashed. Any advice on how to get the plug working again would be much appreciated.

    The quarter turn plug you refer to........is it the basket strainer? Let me know I am sure I can find a solution to your problem as I have been a master plumber for 30 years

How to remove franke sink?


If the clips are plastic you will have to snap them off. the metal ones you might have to cut them off. With the old sinks, when the screws were broken or rusted you would have to cut the clips. NO Easy job.

Franke plug seal problem


Adjust the clip underneath the sink to a different hole on the rod so it will tighten more when used.

We cannot get the mounting clips to stay on


I have spent several hours trying to solve the same problem with a Franke Granite double basin sink. The clips for this Franke sink appear to be a piece of engineering garbage, and the instructions are utterly useless - A huge piece of paper with a template, and tiny pictures that look like they were drawn by a kindergartner with a crayon. The instructions for using the clips --oh there are none - other than a blurry picture in which the clips could fit inside this period (.). Lots of other people appear to have the same issue. I like the Franke sink, but without proper mounting hardware, this franke sink is no better than the poorly made clips, and the Franke Sink horrible instructions that it came with.

Pegasis is a cheap brand of strainer.

ProFlo, moen, franke, Blanco, and even kohler

you might pay a few dollars more, but they will last much longer

Rust around the drain in the larger of the two sinks


You will need to reset the basket strainer using plumbers putty. Is there a garbage disposal installed? You will need to remove it to get to the basket strainer.

I have a brown colored stain in the bottom of my white franke white fireclay sink (maybe coffee stain, not sure) I can't get it clean with regular hand soap which is what franke told me to clean the sink...


I used Cerama Bryte for the dark colored stain, I left it on for about 5 minutes and then rubbed it clean, the stain is gone. Now I tried it on the small aluminum scratch marks, no thank you, it couldn't help that problem. Still seeking a solution. Thanks

I need a new franke sink basket strainer for my franke sink model PRX11021 - stainless steel. What is the model number that will fit this sink and can I order it online or go to a local store?


You should purchase a complete basket strainer assembly. Home Depot or Lowes have some very nice ones. They are a standard size.
Tell them it's for your kitchen sink.
