    Are you pressurizing the the can properly? Have you inspected the gun to determine that it is working properly. (trigger moves the needle)

    Hi, Have you disassembled and cleaned this unit? What was it cleaned with? Did you get a service manual or any other parts with it like a different tip. Is air coming out? What pressure are you using? The main reasons for all of the questions is that it sounds like it may have been cleaned with a solvent and damaged the seals ( o rings) or not reassembled correctly.

How do you take this hvlp gun apart for proper cleaning of the spray gun?

I've found over the years the least amount of times you can tear a spray gun completely apart the better. Usually a real good 'flushing' with lacquer thinner will suffice. I will take the air cap off and let it soak in thinner to dislodge any build up but other than that, I simply run thinner thru till it runs clear out the tip.

I also 'back flush' which involves having thinner in the cup and the air supply hose attached. the air pressure should be adjusted quite a bit lower than what you use for spraying paint.

Then you place a clean shop towel or rag over the air cap of the gun and pull the trigger. This forces air back into the paint cup 'back flushing' the gun. Then take the rag away from the cap and pull the trigger again to run thinner thru the gun the normal way.

IF you still want to tear the gun apart for cleaning you can hopefully get some idea with this video link;

Problems pressure fluid

The air hose between the tank and the gun is clogged, possibly by a bug nesting in it. The second place to look is the regulator on the pot. Insure that you have free airflow from there to the gun.

I have photo copy of binks bbr spray gun with feed cup but i can't find it on your site. I don't know model no. please give me suggesion

The "BBR" gun was the predecessor of the MACH1 gun. And there are basically two versions of it. The older BBR version states on the gun "BBR" only and the newer version "BBR" and "HVLP". Most spares are the same. As I know they just called it "BBR" and there is no Model Number. I have both spare part lists (hard copy at the moment only). What are you exactly looking for?

When tank pressure is on gun sprays without trigger pulled

The only seals I know of that would cause this are around the spindle assembly. If you have changed these then you may have a problem with the seal retainer, a weak spring or bent spindle. Also make sure there are no metal shavings to hinder the sealing. Sometimes they can be left in the gun during machining process.
Hope this helps but if not please let me know and I will try and trouble shoot further.

Air is coming out of the nozzle but the paint is not coming out.

There are different filter screen sizes for different thickness of paint. Even with proper screen size one might need to thin paint. I hope this information is helpful. Please give a rating if this was helpful. Good Luck and have a Great Weekend.

Spray painting operation advice for Binks mach 1 hvlp spray gun

Hey paul its paul. I posted on here so hopefully you will give me some feedback. That is a very nice gun. One of my favorite. I'm guessing you know how to use a HVLP gun but if not here are a few tips. Make sure it is clean. Very clean. Your gun probably came with a manual, you should read it. It will help you greatly. First off, you want to have a regulator, about 40 psi is what i start with. You need a space you can practice some painting before laying down a new coat on the corvette. Haha. So next you will have a pressure adjustment knob, you want to start with this all the way closed and with the trigger pulled, just half way so just air is coming out adjust the air until it sounds even. Next you can try to spray. If it seems like the Fan, like the width is not enough you can adjust the fan, another knob, closer to the back of the gun, you ussually want about 5-6 inches of fan, if you are spraying at the normal 6-8 inches back from the piece. Last adjustment is the fluid adjustment, you want to put on a decent amount of paint, clear or primer, and not cause runs. This is going to take some practice because everyone moves at a different speed.

So you are going to have to play with your gun and figure out which knob does what. After that these instructions should get you a bit further, with some practice you will be laying down a nice paint job in no time.
