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...

How to get an earlex super sprayer to spray that hasnt been used for years

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.

In trying to spray oil base paint, I get very low fluid flow (if any) from the cup to the gun. I've cleaned the gun and insured the hoses weren't clogged. Changing the adjustment valves...

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.

I've also got a broken Earlex Super Sprayer 75. The piston is stuck, but everything else is ok. What bits do you need?

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.

My T50M Staple strips break up in the gun and jam after 4-5 staples. This happens with old staples (10+ years) and with new staples that were purchased two days ago. Out of frustration I purchased a new...

The staples are held together with an epoxy. I have used staples that are older than 10 years. The problem is the gun. Check for dirt or a burk in the magazine as well as a bent pusher blade. My gun also had a problem loosing a screw and nut that attached at the blade guide.

Earlex ss125 wallpaper stripper .while using why did a light come on in the product doesnt work?

This is serious! Yes, really. 
There is no intended light source in the tank. The most obvious answer is that the heater element has burnt out, and that the light you saw was red/white heat produced as the element failed. If you are in the UK, I suggest you contact the Earlex helpline (01483 454666).
If this is what's happened, the fuse in the plug has almost certainly blown too.
If this is helpful, please rate me.
