SOURCE: new to spray painting and am spraying baked enamel paint

To fix this problem you need to turn up the pressure both at the wall(coming from the air compressor) and at the gun. I would suggest 10 more psi at the wall and 5 at the guns but you can play areound to find whats best for you.

I need to replace a spray paint gun for a paint zoom model pz110. Where can I find it?

Home Depot, and eBay list that model.

Might be best to go into Home Depot with it and ask at the information counter for them to look in their computer to suggest how to replace. Unsure what exactly needs to be replaced - a used sprayer sold for $40 last year online, so it may be affordable to buy an entire unit used.

How can u align chevy extra cab rear door?

First, with the door almost tight; spray the inside area with wd40 to coat the painted area then, use a test spray paint color to see if the paint will stick to the wd40 and the wipe off, if it does you will be able to close the door and open the front door with the rear door closed and spray the hinge area with a paint to make your marker then use a jack with cloth at the bottom to protect the new door to aid in tightening and realingning

How should I store Leftover pulp?

There are two ways to do it. One way is to place your pulp mixture in a jar with a lid, close the lid tightly and store it in the refrigerator. The second way is to place the pulp mixture into a freezer bag and store it in the freezer, which can last for months.

My titan 330 airless paint spray will not shut off while primming

Airless paint sprayers should not turn off while in prime mode. As long as the prime valve is open the motor can pump paint but the system will not build any pressure. Once the prime valve is closed the pump should pump paint into the hose until it gets to the pressure level required to turn the motor off. If the pump does not turn off with the prime valve closed, it could be that the spring in the valve is weak and won't hold the valve closed under pressure. If the hose is up to pressure and the motor just keeps trying to pump paint, you may have a bad pressure sensor or it is disconnected from the circuit board.

Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.
Things that cause this symptom are:
1. Debris in the carb float bowl
- Remove the carb float bow nut and clean out the bowl, the bowl but and up inside the treaded area of the bowl nut is the main fuel jet. Make sure to clean that also. You can try carb cleaner but sometimes the jet has to be removed to clear it.
2. Fuel selector sediment bowl is full of debris.
- Unscrew the sediment bulb under the fuel selector and dump out the sediment
3. Dirty fuel filter (if used)
- Check fuel flow at the carb main fuel line connection. If should fill a spray paint can lid in about 8 seconds. Anything less and you need to look at the fuel filter or fuel tank exit port as a source of restrictions.
Once you have good flow here you need to check fuel flow at the float needle.
4. Debris in the fuel float needle seat. Another flow check with a spray paint can lid catch basin.
- The spray paint can lid should fill up in around 10 seconds when you turn on the fuel selector.
Poor fuel flow here and you have to remove the float, hinge pin and float needle. Then spray into the float needle hole with carb cleaner with the MAIN FUEL SUPPLY HOSE DISCONNECTED. Also spray into the main fuel line connection so that any debris is removed.

Performing the above steps should improve your engine performance dramatically. If you still have the problem after performing the above steps respond with your ENGINE MODEL NUMBER and there is more that can be done.

Thanks for choosing FixYa, Kelly

My paint gun is pulsating instead of spraying evenly

It looks like you have a Devilbiss SRI.

Probaby the hole in the lid is blocked, The gun sprays, paint gets sucked out, no air can get back in through the little hole in the lid to replace so it stops spraying, pressures even up it sprays abit more, and so on.

Either that or you have a damaged fluid tip.
