I haven't used mine in a couple of years. I turned it on this spring, the motor runs but nothing comes out of the sprayer. Plus my detergent leaks out of the plastic tube. I lost my manual. Any help would be appreciated.

The pump in the dishwasher is supposed to provide enough water pressure to turn the spray arms and make them rotate. The pump is faulty and not giving enough pressure or the arms are stuck. Try spinning the arms, if they rotate smoothly, you will need to replace the pump.
If paint comes out of the spray gun after you release the handle, your problem is inside the gun. If the needle tip or seat are damaged or the spring that holds them closed is broken, paint will be able to get past the the needle and will come out of the gun even when the handle isn't held open. The stock spray gun that comes with the the XR5 doesn't have any servicable parts inside it so if it isn't working properly it may be garbage fodder. If you have an aftermarket gun, rebuild kits may be available.
Im pretty sure that is all it is. The pressure is by how many times you pump it up. Its just on or off. Sounds like It needs to be cleaned real good, and put soap in it befor you put it bak together. Also there is a screen if you hold the handle and turn the trigger part and unscrew it.
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.
Pull out the small tube connected to the jet the fluid comes out of and check for any kind of debris, after blowing out the tube try and activate washer before you connect the hose again if no fluid comes out of the tube than that replace the small pump connected to the resivoir thay are about $15.00
sound like the inside suction hose is loose or not fitting correctly. i had a similar problem and wrapped some duct tape around the tube then snugly fit it inside the cap. no outside air suction and it works fine. i've had mine going on 15 years and use it constantly.
EASY FIX! Hold the sprayer lower than the tank and run
it until it sprays. You're done. They seem to lose prime, it usually happens to me when I run it completely out and/or first use (almost year round
for us). Mine works
fine every time I do this. If that doesn't work, check the filter on the end of the hose in the tank, blow compressed air through it - NOT BY MOUTH!! Also check for any leaks/pinholes/kinks in the hose - they will **** air instead of solution! I've had mine for 3 seasons in Phoenix and love it! I've n never had any of the other problems I listed personally. Handle the liquids like you handle gas for your lawn mower, etc: 1) Don't let any dirt to get in the solution. 2) Wash the system before storage ESPECIALLY AT END OF SEASON by spraying clean water through It for a couple of minutes or so and rinsing the tank. STORE INSIDE FOR THE WINTER if it freezes, it may trash it. Leaving anything stronger than Roundup (TM) in it for more than a week or so may eventually damage the plastics and/or seize the pump too.
Pull the side cover off the pump of there will be small shaft, turn the shaft it will free it up. You need to make sure that the pump is cleaned out after each use, you can get a cleaning material that you want to run through the hole system, relief valve, spray nozzle etc. it will lubicate everything up. If you did not clean it out it will seeze and you will needs to be freed, chemical will freeze the moto.
