Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Hi I own a Franke 4in 1 tap.it has a water filter that needed changing. I unscrewed the canister and replaced the filter with a new approved one.i reassembled ,turned on the water but it leaked on the seal. Now I can’t unscrew it. It appears to be locked rather than just tight. When it was tightened there was a click.I need to remove it clean it up and reset.

There are a few different franke filters whats the model number of the filter, most just unscrew and dont have a locking mechanism. If you send me the model number I can verify.
