Off hand I would say that you have the wrong spray tip for the paint that you are spraying or that the tip is worn. Another thing that it could be is the little piece of rubber behind the tip is worn or missing. My first suggestion is check the tip size with the recomendations of the paint that you are spraying (You will find this on any specification sheet from the paint manufacturer.. If the size is correct replace the tip. A new gasket comes with a new tip. Hope this helps.

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.

The sticker on the bottom is only the chassis number and usually the date of manufacturer. Is the pram one where the body detaches from the wheels and do you know how old it is? Or is it the boat shaped body with big wheels, which doesn't detach from them? (Similar to the picture on here of the Balmoral). Or is it one where the body detaches from the body? If you look on EBay under Silver Cross prams you should be able to identify the model. There are also aprons often for sale on there too.

there are several issues that can cause this problem.
I will assume you have used the sprayer before so that will eliminate an incorrect air cap. The only other issues are paint viscosity, worn parts and the number one cause improper cleaning.
Be prepared for a complete disassemble of your gun. Depending on what you spray any residue can become hard as cement and it only takes a small amount to cause problems.
Below is a link to the manual that gives an exploded view of your gun.
Hope this helps but if not please let me know and I will trouble shoot further.

when you pull the trigger can u see the needle moving backward? if so, then it's either the paint is too thick compare to the nozzle size or the passage for paint is blocked. try to take the nozzle, needle and the cup off and give it a good clean!
