Quooker Tap Problems - Descaling, Servicing & Repair

If you have a Quooker tap in your kitchen, you may from time to time experience some problems with it. In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the most common Quooker tap problems and how to fix them.

One of the most common Quooker tap problems is that the tap stops working altogether. This can be caused by a number of things, but one of the most common causes is a build-up of limescale in the taps. If this is the problem, then the best thing to do is to descale the taps.

How to remove limescale from a Quooker tap?

Quooker tabs are very different from traditional taps, and as such we would recommend you call in a professional plumber for such work, but for those who feel confident to tackle it themselves here is a brief guide.

  1. Start by turning off the water at the mains and isolating the power unit.
  2. Remove the cover from the tap to access the valve.
  3. Using a limescale remover, such as white vinegar or CLR, soak a cloth in the solution and wrap it around the valve.
  4. Leave for a few hours, or overnight if the build-up is bad.
  5. Remove the cloth and flush the tap with clean water to and use a toothbrush remove any residue.
  6. Replace the cover and turn the water back on at the mains.

If your Quooker tap is still not working after you have descaled it, then it may be that the problem lies with the valves. These can become worn out over time and will need to be replaced. Again, we would recommend calling in a professional for this, as it can be a bit fiddly.

Low Temperature & Water Pressure Problems

Another common Quooker tap problem is that the water temperature drops suddenly or the flow of water slows to a trickle. This again, is usually caused by a build-up of limescale in the heating element. descaling the heating element will usually fix the problem. In most cases this again will be a job for a professional plumber as disassembling the heating element and isolating water/power can be quite difficult.


These are just some of the most common Quooker tap problems that you may experience. As you can see, in some cases they are relatively easy to fix yourself, but if in doubt it is always best to call in a professional.
