Are you straining the paint through cheese cloth or some other type of strainer ? Trash in the paint building up around the tip could cause it, straining will eliminate that. The return spring, or the grommets depending on what type of gun your using could be wore out keeping the needle from seating closed all the way. Is it when you stop spraying or during. May need to change the pressure setting or tip size for the material you are spraying, again, depends entirely on your specific situation as to what could be causing the problem. But these are things you can try. The paint store would probably be able to point you in the right direction if it comes down to changing tips. Might be worth a call to save yourself more aggravation. hmmm,, goes to show how observant I am,, sanchezauto,, are you painting cars,, with a conventional cup gun ? All of any of the above could apply. And if your painting cars you sure don't want a spitting gun messing you up. (-8

Spray gun problems


You basically have what is called a "cupgun" and there are a few reasons for this and it should be pretty simple to fix I want to stress that anytime you spray the paint no matter what latex-oil needs to be thinned with the compatible solvent water for latex paint thinner for oil/Alkyd by about 10% - 18% that could be the problem if you have latex in your gun but probably it has to do with the "needle seat" in the back of the gun there should be a knob to adjust the needle turn your gun on pull the trigger and turn knob till paint comes out if that wont work you may have debris in your paint that has clogged the stem pour all the paint out clean gun completely pour paint threw a strainer cone or strainer bag and be sure to thin it...

440i wont stop spraying


Either your gun is dirty and the valve spring can't close the tip valve properly or the seat it pushes against is damaged. First try cleaning the gun very throughly. Take it apart and get everything out of the gun that doesn't belong there. If it still does the same thing you can buy a repair kits for the paint guns but they're usually expensive and you're almost always better off replacing the gun.

Why does my gun keep spitting


Spitting is usually caused by not filtering the paint through a strainer (made for the purpose by the paint manufacturer). The paint debris blocks the paint for just a moment, then spits it out. Easy fix!

Worked for about 10 minutes


do you have a gun that comes apart? alot of them have that filter in the gun that clogs up with latex.you could remove gun and soak in mineral spirits if it does not have that filter.

I bought a psh1 to spray latex as the reviews


Hi


What size is the jet?
What compressor pressure are you using, LOW is good >20PSI
You will need quite a large jet for latex paint even thinned. I have tried a 1.8mm jet and that still clogs!! Consult your local spray painter with what size jet you need.

I am betting the standard size of 1.5mm is way too small, that type of gun is fine with the correct jet size.

Problem spray painting water based paint


I spoke to a friend who was a spraypainter in his last job, apparently due to the thickness of the paint, I needed a larger nozzle on the gun. I couldnt get a nozzle to suit this gun so I purchased another gun with a cuple of different size nozzles. All seems to be working fine now.
