There are a lot of variables while airbrushing. If you are having trouble with a new airbrush(or one that isn't hugely gunked up) you likely need to do 1 or both of the following to get it to spray the paint:
1) Thin your paint, use the correct medium based on the paint type. Water can be used to thin water-based paints but too much will result in a bad coat and finish. You are looking for a milk-slightly thicker than milker consistency.
2) Crank up the air through the airbrush. Assuming you have a regulator you may need to turn the pressure up to get thicker paints to spray. If you are using a siphon feed you may need a couple extra PSI to recoup for what you are losing from the syphon. Make sure to check the max pressure your airbrush can handle before cranking it too high(most can handle at least 30 PSI).
Hope this helps.

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.

Graco x9 won't hold pressure


If it comes up to pressure but won't hold it when the motor stops, you have either damaged packings or a bad check ball-to-seat seal. If it's the check ball(s) not seating properly a real good cleaning should take care of it. If it's the packings the only remedy is to replace them.

I have the hds780rs0605 I need to know if I can use latex paint for my walls and how to with out it clogging up


Let me start by saying these types of paint sprayers are not usually recommended for painting large things like room walls because you're going to spend a lot of time refilling the paint cup. The cup only holds 20 ounces of paint and that won't go very far on your walls. If all your paint isn't mixed and properly thinned at the same time your walls could end up with a checker board look. You would usually be way further ahead to rent an airless paint sprayer.
If you have to use it; first run your paint through a paint strainer, avaliable at any paint or box store (The Home Deopt, Lowes, etc). Even new paint has impurities that will clog paint guns. It's highly recommended you mix in a paint conditioner like Flotrol but not absolutely necessary. Next, you're going to have to experiment with the consistency of the paint to get a good even flow out of the gun. The thinner you have to make the paint to get a good flow, the lighter and more coats you're going to have to apply. It's also recommended to run a paint soaked roller over the wall right after you spray it to even out the paint and remove any overlap marks.

440i titan only pressure is between 0-200 psi no matter the setting


If an airless paint sprayer won't prime it's usually because one or both check balls are stuck. First try hitting the head where the pump is sharply with a hammer, hard enough to knock the balls loose but not so much that you do any damage to the pump. If that doesn't free them up you may have to take the pump apart and clean them and their seats.
If an airless paint sprayer won't develop pressure, it's usually because the packing rnigs are damaged or collapsed. The only way to check this is to totally disassemble the pump and check them. Also look for any damage to the piston and cylinder. They must be very smooth and shiney, if they are scored they will eat up any new packing rings you put in.

My graco xr5 sprays when i turn tip to spray position


If paint comes out of the spray gun after you release the handle, your problem is inside the gun. If the needle tip or seat are damaged or the spring that holds them closed is broken, paint will be able to get past the the needle and will come out of the gun even when the handle isn't held open. The stock spray gun that comes with the the XR5 doesn't have any servicable parts inside it so if it isn't working properly it may be garbage fodder. If you have an aftermarket gun, rebuild kits may be available.

What kind of paint and brush should I use to paint my wooden bar stools?


You should first put a layer of primer using wood primerfrom a spray can. This will prevent thepaint from being absorbed into the wood. After 24 hours, you should use acrylic black (or whichever color youwant) paint in a spray can. The reason Irecommend spray paint is because it's easy and gives you tan even, blemish freecolor. Wait 24 hours (so that bubbleswon't form) and do another layer. If itdoesn't look thick enough to you, wait another 24 hours and do a final layer. There is no need for a clear finish.

Over spray or fish eyes


Over spray is just that getting paint on a surface you are not painting (protect adjacent surfaces) "fish eyes" are almost always some type of oil wax or something that was not cleaned off and the paint film moves away from it- always clean all surfaces first before any painting.

In trying to spray oil base paint, I get very low fluid flow (if any) from the cup to the gun. I've cleaned the gun and insured the hoses weren't clogged. Changing the adjustment valves...


How does it spray if you dump the paint out and put paint thinner in the cup? If it sprays paint thinnner, but not the paint, your paint is too thick. Thin it down by 25% and try a little. Keep adding thinner until the paint sprays out of the gun in an acceptable manner. Your gun probably has a 1.1,or 1.4 fluid tip. this is for spraying lacquers or automotive paints that are very thin. to spray oil based paint, your would need a 2.0 or 2.5 or bigger. not really what this gun was made to spray.

The trigger on the spraygun for my Magnum SR7 sprayer is slack - doesn't operate at all and won't release any fluid from the nozzle.


This is a contractors gun its a vary good gun worth about 200 hunderd dollars . The problem is eigther the spring that returns the trigger _neddle valve to seat pisition is eighter stuck or broken. But if you are haveing this kind of problem it means the gun was not cleaned correctly . Im a perfinial spray painter and if the gun isn;t clean then the mechine wasn;t cleaned as well it goes hand in hand . So what kind of mechine are trying to opperate its an airless acording to the picture and that makes sence . You may be able to clean the gun or get a kit to rebuild it its about a hunderd dollars but the mechine most likely needs to be cleaner at best if no completely rebuild and repacked . If the seals in the pump can put out pressure and the trigger on the gun is slack then you shouldn't be able to shut the paint off because the trigger would be open at this point
