Probably have a blockage in your airbrush. Disassemble the air brush and clean thoroughly. Be sure to disassemble and clean after every use session. Be sure to mix the paint. If the paint has settled, it may be too thick to spray.

SOURCE: What causes fisheyes using an inexpensive HVLP

Here is some information to solve the problem.

Fish Eyes: A surface depression or crater in the wet paint film. Fish eyes are caused by repulsion of the wet paint by a surface contaminant such as oil or silicone. The depression may or may not reveal the surface under the paint. Make sure the surface is clean.

Etching Primer
If you are going to be painting any aluminum, you are going to need an etching primer. This primer can also be used on steel. It is two-parts (not like epoxy, though) and tends to "bite aggressively" into the metal. It really stinks to have your paint stick well to your primer, but the primer releases from the metal. One of the major benefits is that you can paint over the primer in 1/2 hour, about the time it takes you to clean your gun and mix the paint.

Additives: You can get anti fisheye additives, hardeners, flatteners, catalysts, metallics, metal flake, pearls, and reducers to mention a few. Get an anti fisheye thats compatible with the paint you use.
Masks Use a good quality dual cartridge mask for all work. Don't skimp, get the charcoal cartridges, they stop most aromatic vapors.

SOURCE: paint sprayer won't pump

Ok, go to campbel hausfeld web site and download a manual for your sprayer :
Find your model number and look at parts view. Pay paticular attention to the inlet and outet valves. They must be absolutely clean to function. These pumps must be thoroughly cleaned when finished.

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...

Old Wangner Cap Sprayer & Compressor

The Wagner Capspray 9000 HVLP is about 20 years old, but you should be able to find parts, at least for the HVLP gun. The manual for the turbine is #0276989. If you are in the US try Scott at American Airless Wagner Titan Graco Paint Sprayers or in Europe try us at:
