Either the fluid you are attempting to spray is too thick or the little holes in the spray head are partially clogged. Begin by running some small copper wire thru each hole to unclog it and see if that solves your problem. If not, filter the liquid you want to spray and dilute it as needed.

I have a Kraft tool texture sprayer 500 model, I have noticed lately that the oil is slowly syponing out of the holding tank and its running into the air hose so when I turn it on it spits out oil lef


As the hopper gun does not use oil, you are either spraying an oil based material which is separating in the hopper, or you are using a compressor that is leaving oil in the airline; this could happen if the compressor is worn and oil is leaking past the piston into the air.

Shoots drips


Most airless spray guns spit a bit when you pull or release the trigger because the paint between the spray tip and the paint valve is under pressure but not enough to atomise the paint. If you increase the pressure you may reduce the spit to a point when you don't notice it. A blocked filter could slow the paint getting through to the tip cause lower pressure.

Paint gun not shooting correctly


Seeing how you have really stated what the problem is (spitting, clogged, won't shut off, fan pattern wont adjust Etc) and there could be several different things wrong- lets go over some basic spraying A B C'S- always strain the paint through a strainer bag or cone this will remove any debri that might clog the tip, *THINNING when you spray or atomize paint it should always be thinned it will actually cover much better if you thin it with the appropriate solvent water for latex thinner for oil base you want to stay in the 15% range alittle bit more on hot days. The shape of the spray that comes out of the tip is called "fan pattern" or "tip fan" "fan size" you can adjust the fan pattern from 9:00 - 3::00 or sideways to straight up and down or to a small circle this is done by moving the "tip housing retainer" keep a piece of cardboard to practice and see. IMPORTANT:When you have finished spraying you need to clean the entire gun by running the right solvent through the gun untill nothing but clean solvent is coming out dissemble the gun remove and clean needle and needle housing this is not very complicated and is paramount to maintaining any spray equipment for sure the gun....

KWC Domo faucet sprayer won't switch between spray and stream


Having installed and fixed kwc domo faucets for years I'd probably take the spray head off of the hose, then look into the bottom of the spray head and see if the check valve is still there. It probably is. I used to use a thin screwdriver to pry the check valve out out.It will come out. You need to work at it a bit but these hold back a lot of water pressure and catch any crud coming down the water lines.

Replace button on pull-out sprayer


With your faucet in the off position pull the sprayer out. Unscrew the hose that connects to the sprayer. This lets you take the sprayer to someplace where you can sit down. The front of the sprayer where the water comes out unscrews as well. You may need to use a nonslip mat or a piece of rubber but you can undo this by hand. Once you have this off a small piece (airator) can come out that helps control water flow into a steady stream instead of the way water comes out of a garden hose with no nozzle. form here you'll be able to see how the old button fits into the sprayer, pop it out and replace with the new one. Assemble in reverse.

Immediate pressure loss


your dip tube inside the tank has come loose or has a leak near the top. instead of fluid being pushed up the dip tube into the wand hose the air in the tank is just escaping. You will have to remove the wand hose and figure out where the leak is and fix the dip tube.

Sprayer tips


Read and FOLLOW EXACTLY the spray material directions for mixing and use. Wear protective clothing including gloves and eye protection when spraying. Do not smoke, eat or drink when spraying; "wash up" afterwards. Spray on a calm day. Otherwise, winds may blow spray material off target. It's often best to spray in the early morning or late afternoon so excessive heat won't quickly evaporate the spray material. Follow the directions for use and maintenance that come with your applicator. Dispose of left over spray material and clean your applicator according to the directions on the spray material and with the applicator. Keep spray materials and applicator away from children and pets. Do not store spray materials in any but the original container in which they were purchased.
