Question about Fountainhead/Burgess Prod Black Flag Propane Fogger
I have lost the owners manual and do not how to unclog the machine. When I push the pump trigger, it seems like the valves inside are clogged. How do I unclog the lines. Should I use varsol? Seems like the liquid left from last year hardened in the lines.....
Hello, i just finished a successful repair. i did have to take it apart, and there were springs and ss balls(at fog liquid pickup end that i unscrewed to give easy access to blocked pipe) and such so work where parts won't be easily lost and pay attention during disassembly. The problem with mine(several years old) was blockage in the metal line(pipe) that carries the fogger liquid. i used carborator cleaner and a compressor hose with low pressure. i sprayed in the cleaner and then put air pressure each way back and forth till it eventually yet suddenly cleared out then allowed unobstructed passage. then flushed it to clean it well. BE CAREFUL, it can suddenly spray the cleaner out, safety glasses saved me from a bad accident but my face and lips were stinging from the cleaner, and that was with the end facing away from me(but into a bucket and it bounced back at me). Anyway, reassembly took a bit but now it fogs great again. Mine might be a different manufacturer(burgess) but most likely the same basic scenario. Best wishes

I have a black flag propane fogger that clogged also. But instead of using a cleaner that can be harmful I took a propane torch and heated the coils to the point of glowing red and then took and blew it out with a compressor. You do have to take it apart in order to access both ends of the coils. Yes keep all parts together and pay attention as to how it goes back together. Once you blow it out you won't have to flush it out cause everything got cooked to oblivion and blown out.

1) Make sure there is water in the solution tank.
2) Try priming the machine by instructing the consumer to squeeze the trigger
repeatedly for 1 to 2 full minutes. Important: If you cannot
squeeze the trigger all the way in, remove the tank from the back of the
machine and then try squeezing the trigger with the tank removed. There is an
internal valve that could be sticking. By removing the solution tank and squeezing
the trigger, it should break it loose, allowing the trigger to be fully depressed.
3) Make sure the open end of the siphon tube in the solution tank is not pushed into the
side of the tank, covering the end of tube. If it is, push the bend in the
Siphon tube toward the back of the solution tank.
4) Check to see if the siphon tube has become disconnected from the outlet fitting on
the inside of the solution tank. If so, you need to buy a replacement solution tank. Parts
can be found at www.bissell.com
5) Check to see if air comes through the spray tip by repeatedly squeezing the trigger
with solution tank off the unit. If not, spray tip may be clogged. Try and unclog
spray tip with a pin or paper clip.
If still no spray, please check the following:
a) Make sure the solution tank is installed properly.
b) Check to see if black O-ring is present on rear connector to solution tank.
