SOURCE: AL2340 will not prime

I worked at a tool rental center when I was going to college and learned many useful tips / tricks about airless sprayers. Airless sprayers have two check valves/balls that can stick on their seats or stay open due to chips of paint on seat. Easy method to prime is to remove intake filter from machine, tilt the machine back far enough so that the pick-up tube is pointing up high enough to pour water in tube until full; hold in this position and turn on machine. If water is sucked in turn off machine and tilt machine into pail of water and restart to check for prime. If it still will not prime remove water from pickup tube and use air pressure into tube with bypass valve open. Air pressure will attempt to release the stuck lower check ball. If air pressure does not release stuck ball you may have to use physical pressure against ball. If lower check ball was stuck you can assume that the upper check ball is probably stuck also. An aid to loosen stickey valves is to pour solvent into pickup tube with machine tilted back as before leave overnite. Enjoy

SOURCE: I have a wagner 404

It sounds like one of two things...

either the pump seals need replaced or the motor is not running fast enough under load.

Check for loose wiring on the motor, the brush holders and condition, and make sure that the air path to cool the motor is clean and free of obstructions.

SOURCE: How to remove the Prime/Spray

You can unscrew it without removing the plastic part - just use thin vice grips and get a piece of the metal nut, unscrew down (counter clockwise) and it should come off with average pressure. I checked mine, not much to go wrong there, then screwed back in. I have similar problem with pressure, it is likely a worn O ring. Seems to be in the outlet valve as I replaced some of the inlet valve rings and same effect. Research says the outlet valve is the problem if paint comes out of the squeezed nozzel while in Prime mode, which mine does, and is likely not building the pressure as some paint is flowing back through the worn outlet parts.

My 640 titan run but will not prime it does not spray product


It is hard to follow your question....however; if the sprayer turns on and the paint fails to enter the nozzle, you may have a blockage. Take the spray nozzle apart and run hot water over it to clean it out. You may need a small brush or cu-tip to clean the inside of the barrel. Blow though it and see if air passes easily. reassemble and run as you normally do. Be certain the top is attached to the paint reserve tightly and securely. Any air leaks will prevent the sprayer from building up pressure within and thus no spay will be emitted.

Toro Power Clear 418 ZE Snow Blower won't stay started


The main jet of your carb is clogged and you need to open carb and clear the obstruction - spray carb cleaner on the bolt that holds the gas container to bottom of carb - also spray all the innards along with any tube that protrudes into the gas can.

Then using air compressor blow the sucker out and reassemble. That should do it.

I have a Wagner 834cw15. Spraying fine 10 mins ago. Now...can't get it to prime. Any suggestions? Spraying oil based kilz


http://www.wagnerspraytech.com/portal/loader.php

I cannot find model 834
Check your owner's manual for troubleshooting steps
We used paint sprayers every day for years.
The prime valve goes bad
The steel balls that direct the paint between prime and hose, wear out
The steel ball that holds prime and hose pressure wears out

The steel balls can also get stuck
Turn prime lever on
Take a hammer and tap/bang front of paint sprayer until ball comes loose
I cannot see your sprayer so I don't know where the ball is located
The photo below says, keep lever up >> in your case lever is down or in prime position while tapping

My troy bilt runs for a while and then shutoff, if I prime it again it will start and run for a couple minutes an then shut off. I remove the airfilter it was dirty. I primed it again and started and it...


Check your fuel filter if you have one.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

My pool pump will run fine once I prime the system from the top of the pump basket. Then once the timer shuts the pump off, when it trips the switch to run again there is no water in the pump and it cannot...


If you are a long way above the surface of the pool and you have a leak on the filter it could be a check valve problem.
With it competly loosing the prime it sounds more like a suction leak. This will be in the plumbing and will need a re-plumb or it could be as simple as a lid "O" ring or cracked lid.
What happens is the air get's in the tank and air will compress when under pressure. Then when the pump shut's down the air can expand again. When it does it will rush back through the system and blow the prime right out of the pump. Quite often you will see water blow out of the skimmer or just blow the skimmer lid off. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Wagner paint crew won't build pressure or shut off. Can I test the outlet valve or the inlet valve? Or just start buying parts and hope I get the right one. ??/ Thanks..


1. Does it pump paint in PRIME position. If yes, then the outlet valve assembly may be stuck or bad.

2. If it won't pump paint in the PRIME position, the inlet valve may be stuck, just poke your finger down the inlet hole (machine off) . It is spring loaded and should move about an 1/8".

3. The worst option is the pump piston if froze. To check: remove the plastic hopper assembly, comes off with about 4 screws from underneath. The whole thing just pulls off. Now you can see the inlet assembly with two O rings. Use the white plastic hex shaped tool comes with the spray, and stuck on the lower base of the unit. Unscrew the inlet assembly. If clean enough, you can see the end of the piston. It's about a 1/4" diameter. Turn the machine on for a moment and you shoud see the piston move back on forth. If it doesn't the piston is froze. Good Luck with that.
