Hi Sue,

You didn\'t say what is wrong with your Earlex spraygun; does it spray at all? If it is not working it is probably because some of the passage-ways are blocked with dry paint, or air is leaking in, or both, so you need to clean it out thoroughly. Best would be to soak it in gunflush which you can buy from most motor factors that sell paint; cover up the container to avoid the gunflush from evapourating and do this in a well ventillated area; no naked flames or sparks. When it is clean you may need to replace the needle packings which are around the needle where it enters the front of the gun, but try oiling them first; leave the oil on the needle over night to allow it to soak into the packings. You may be able to download a manual from the web.

Well if it powers on, and has air flow through the hose, and probably what is a turbine, then the only thing that should be able to be the problem is the gun itself. Pull the trigger, blow through it to see if it is clogged. If it is clogged then cleaning is the problem. Take it apart and clean each part in the correct solvent or cleaning solution. If its plastic, which that one is, then you probably don't want to soak it in lacquer thinner. If it is unclogged, try the adjustments although there are not a whole lot of them on that unit I do not think.

Instructions for earlex 120 sprayer
there is your link for your spray gun in general every time you use any spray gun it needs to be cleaned run solvent through it to clean it -water for latex, paint thinner for oils remove the tip housing take out the fluid needle clean it every time so it looks like new.
As for thinning stay around 15% in general latex paint does not atomize well so I tend to stay away from latex on metal parts or like a small box and so on however yes we use latex on homes but an airless sprayer is used you basically have a style of "cupgun" thats for detail work...

Please provide correct paint viscosity to be used for Airless Paint Sprayer (item 60600). Include the method (standard) used to measure the paint viscosity. Thank you.

I had an airless sprayer years ago. I couldn't work out how to thin the paint either. The end result was if its too thick and wouldn't spray, I added more thinners. If it sprayed blobs and ran everywhere, I added a bit more paint. Not very professional but I got it down pat after a few errors. I wrote on the paint can I was using, the mix that worked the best.

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:

I can't remember how many seconds the paint should run through the funnel thingy

Assuming that you are using the standard 2.0mm tip - MAXIMUM 60 seconds.
The paint manufacturer publishes a data sheet with recommended viscosity for spraying and you should try that first. The data sheet will probably suggest a maximum percentage of thinning as well.
You will find that in order to obtain a nice fine spray 45 seconds through the viscosity cup is about right for most oil paints.

How do i get the spray to come out in a fan shape. The model number I have is 1125D.


You need to consider what materials you will be spraying. Wet table powders and sprays with relatively high solids contents will work better with a diaphragm pump than a roller pump. For tanks, plastic should be fine unless you are spraying materials which will react with the plastic. If you are concerned about it getting banged around, consider welding a roll cage or some bumpers around the tank. With 2 acres to spray, the sprayer will not be getting heavy use, so you won't need super heavy duty equipment.

Using Ortho weed and crabgrass concentrate... what setting do i use on my Ortho hose end sprayer

Here is what they say at their site:

{ ...
How do I use the Ortho Dial 'N Spray Multi-Use Hose-End Sprayer?
Pour product into jar, and set dial to amount indicated on product label and begin spraying. This sprayer siphons product and mixes while spraying; it does not mix inside the sprayer.
... }

Which means it is not determined by Scotts, but by the product you want to disperse with the Dial N Spray.

And here is an exact description of the settings:

{ ... There are 14 settings in all and they range from 1 teaspoon per gallon up to 8 ounces per gallon. You will find the dial at the on the top of the sprayer. ... }

Sprayer tips

Read and FOLLOW EXACTLY the spray material directions for mixing and use. Wear protective clothing including gloves and eye protection when spraying. Do not smoke, eat or drink when spraying; "wash up" afterwards. Spray on a calm day. Otherwise, winds may blow spray material off target. It's often best to spray in the early morning or late afternoon so excessive heat won't quickly evaporate the spray material. Follow the directions for use and maintenance that come with your applicator. Dispose of left over spray material and clean your applicator according to the directions on the spray material and with the applicator. Keep spray materials and applicator away from children and pets. Do not store spray materials in any but the original container in which they were purchased.
