Probably the paint and texture have clogged the orifice as well as the feed tube up. Hope the paint was water based. If so, set the gun down in a bucket of very hot water with the trigger tied open.

It may take several soaks. Each time you check it put the air on and pull the trigger a few times. Eventually it will unclog. By the way, you should take the orifice completely off so there is no restriction.

If it was solvent based you are pretty much out of luck.

Just got one same problem. The trick is to get some lubricating oil take airbrush off from airhose and on the bottom of the airbrush where you connect the hose put some oil then get a toothpick and insert gently and push up you'll feel the trigger go up. You got to do this process a couple of times and also with the air on. It works! Good luck

What causes it to stall when trigger pulled?


Generally lack of fuel..

Pulling on the trigger doesn't increase the fuel getting into the engine like you'd think. The trigger opens up a butterfly valve which allows more air to be drawn in, this in turn draws more fuel through the carb. So if its bogging down when the throttle is pulled then generally it because not enough fuel is being drawn through b the air.. meaning there's too much air to fuel mix to burn effectively. This also can work the other way if the air filter is blocked or the exhaust is blocked with carbon deposits.

How to clean your air brush to keep it like new


Taking care of your tools and supplies is an essential in their upkeep and increasing the life of your tools. When you neglect to take care of your tools they will get clogged or ruined and eventually will stop working. This same principle applies to your air brush gun, if you don't take care of it and clean in properly after each use it will get clogged and will stop working.

After each use you want to make sure that you get all the paint out, to do this you should add a little bit of warm water to the cup (where the paint goes in) and then pour it out into the trash. You must be sure NOT to use hot water because it could melt or warp small plastic pieces inside the gun.

Fill a bowl or tub with clean warm water, connect the air brush to the tube, plug it in and turn it on. Placing the needle and the cup under the water and pull the trigger. Run water through it for a few minutes to make sure that no color comes out of it. If paint does come out of the gun you will need to change the water.

When the water runs clear through the gun take it out of the water and fill the cup with clean water. While placing your finger over the needle cap pull the trigger. This will make the air flow backwards through the gun causing bubbles to form in the cup. If there is paint stuck in the gun it will come up in the bubbles in this step. Pour the water out and place the needle and cup in water again and pull the trigger.

When you feel that it is clean, take the gun out of the water and spray your gun on a white napkin or paper towel to make sure there is no color in the spray. If no color comes out you are all clean and ready to use your airbrush gun again.

Fixing textured (not popcorn) drywall ceiling


If you've got a house built in the 90's, you may well have a textured drywall ceiling with a pattern on it. The most common pattern is a blossom texture with patterns of repeating ridges form circles.

The problem comes when you have to repair this ceiling. Knowing how to duplicate the texture is the problem.

Here are the steps to do this:

Replace/repair drywall ceiling until the surface is paint ready, but do not paint. Sand texture off of some of the adjoining ceiling to avoid a visible border.

Make sure you have a drop cloth down!!! This might drip.

Mix drywall mud down to the consistence of pancake batter. You want it stiff enough not to drip, but pliable enough to texture. The mixture should just barely be pourable.

Pour into a paint roller pan, and using a long nap roller with the lint removed (use masking tape) roll the joint compound onto the repaired area.

Allow to set for a few moments to make sure it won't drip Now get out your stomping (yeah, that's what they call it) tool, and texture the ceiling.

You can buy brushes to "stomp" your ceiling at many paint stores, but they aren't cheap. Instead, you can do what most drywall guys do, and make your own. Go to the store and get an old fashioned string mop. When selecting the mop, look at the head. Some have a rectangular bar holding the strings in place, and some have a round tab, about the size of a quarter. You want the one with the round tab, and get one with strings, not cloth strips.

When you get it home, hold the mop up to the ceiling, and note how long the strings need to be to create the same size pattern. Cut your strings about two inches longer, since the whole string does not hit the ceiling.

Trim the strings to the correct length, then soak the mop for 24 hours to limber them up.

Now back to the stomping. Once you have your drywall mud applied, all you have to do is hold the mop over your head, upside down, straight up, with the strings hanging uniformly around the sides. The mop should be damp, but not wet. You can add a bit of drywall mud to it first if you wish, I do not.

Hold the mop about eight inches below your drywall, and starting at an edge where you can judge where to match the old pattern, "stomp" the mop into the wet mud, just like you were stomping your foot. Immediately pull the mop back, and you should have the same pattern as your ceiling.

Continue stomping until you've covered the ceiling. Afterward, you can wash the mop, and keep it for later if you think you will need it.

Tips:
After stomping, let it dry for at least two days before painting.
When you buy your drywall joint compound, look at the prices. You can often get a five gallon bucked for only a couple of dollars more than a gallon. (I always buy pre-mixed, it works great). To preserve the mud you didn't use, after you're done with it, mix a teaspoon of bleach into a cup of water. Level the surface of the mud in the bucket, then pour a layer of the bleach/water mix on top. This will keep the mud from drying or molding.

A newly painted wall looks splochy, shinny in some spots and dull in others.


I would hope that you had the paint mixed well before putting it on and that the entire wall was done in one event. Also it would be of help to have primed the existing paint first.

2nd coat of spraying on the paint looks like it's textured. it's a damp day - could that be why?


Well, could be. You did not specify what type of paint you are spraying onto what type of material....

Are you filtering your paint? do you have an air line evaporator? The secret to drying compressed air is to COOL it first, often with long air lines (or refrigeration unit), then the vapor separator. If the air is still hot, vapor will not be separated.

and by textured, do you mean raised bumps or valleys?

I purchased the Wagner power tex and loved it, recently it doesn?t spray with the ease as it did when I bought, I haven?t used it a lot only to do fill in?s, seems like it only releases the texture once...


Your sprayer is self powered? you don't use a separate compressor? I have one with a compressor and it has to be taken apart " the gun" everytime or the trigger becomes stiff. If it's self powered, I would say your mixture is too stiff and water and it should be fine..If not and if it's self powered, then your motor may not work properly.
