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.
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....
Either your gun is dirty and the valve spring can't close the tip valve properly or the seat it pushes against is damaged. First try cleaning the gun very throughly. Take it apart and get everything out of the gun that doesn't belong there. If it still does the same thing you can buy a repair kits for the paint guns but they're usually expensive and you're almost always better off replacing the gun.
It means the unit has either a bad belt or belts or a bad drive wheel--if the tape goes in the unit opens the cassette and feeds the tape out--if broken or loose belt it will not make it fully out against the video heads and will spit tape out.
Used to be by model number belt packs with a idler included to replace all at one time.
Use or hours does not matter as if the unit sits a long time or is rarely used the belts and idler (rubber) will degrade and cause problems.
How does it spray if you dump the paint out and put paint thinner in the cup? If it sprays paint thinnner, but not the paint, your paint is too thick. Thin it down by 25% and try a little. Keep adding thinner until the paint sprays out of the gun in an acceptable manner. Your gun probably has a 1.1,or 1.4 fluid tip. this is for spraying lacquers or automotive paints that are very thin. to spray oil based paint, your would need a 2.0 or 2.5 or bigger. not really what this gun was made to spray.
