Question about Air Tools & Compressors

2 Answers

Sprayer has not been used in years. Motor runs, but nothing comes out. I was using water as a test. Remove tip etc. and tried to run but same result. My guess is there is paint stuck somewhere or if I put oil in it at all it didn't work in storage. Is this worth fooling with. Is it possible to fool with or is this a take it to the repair shop or trash it and buy a new one. Unit is a Series 200 heavy duty

There is a small strainer in the gun it self it is a small round mesh strainer or plastic usually white you would need to replace the strainer tha would cost you approcimately 7.00 dollars it just probably has paint that plugged that strainer and over the years it probably just got too hard to let the water thru. good luck.

Try using paint thinner! soak for a good while with everything apart and you will need compressed air fro a air compressor capable of 90+ psi and blow everything out! works alot for my guns and they sit sometimes for a year or so! but if you don't have shop air then you might not want to waste your time because this is a key step in the process! good luck man

Instructions for earlex 120 sprayer


http://www.manualslib.com/manual/388222/Earlex-Ags120.html
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...

Make sure your water temperature is hot enough to dissolve the soap. Generally, the water temp. should be 140 degrees. Run some hot water at the tap before you turn on the dishwasher. This will assure that hot water is in the dishwasher as soon as you start it. Be certain that there aren't any large pieces in front of the dispenser tray. Sometimes casserole dishes, frying pans or baking pans can block the door and prevent it from opening.
Also, the sprayer arms might be clogged with bone fragments, peelings, bits of paper, etc. If this is the case, you'll need to remove the sprayer arm, flush and then check the jets. If you see "stuff" in the jets, they can be remove with tweezers.
Finally, make sure the upper sprayer arm hose is securely seated with the tube in the back of the dishwasher that carries the water up to the sprayer arm hose. If these two are not seated correctly, the water will not travel into the sprayer arm hose, the sprayer arm will not turn and your dishes will not get clean! I hope this helps. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice.

I have EP2105i and it does not want to spray though motor on and seems to be suction when prime


Hi, W/D here.

Here's a few things to try:
1. Disassemble the gun and check the filter in the handle. Deposits can plug the gun up. Change the filter if necessary, they're cheap.
2. Disassemble the tip and clean. I use a small brush, not unlike a toothbrush, to clean mine. A toothpick or small dental probe works well for removing harder deposits.
3. On the bottom side of the pump is a primer pump. You push the stem several times to make sure that the check ball on the inside is operating freely. You may need to clean it if it's operation is suspect.
4. When initially starting the sprayer up, set the control knob to prime and pump water into a waste bucket. Turn the knob from prime to paint and try to pump water through the tip of the gun. If the pump shuts off on prssure, but nothing comes out of the tip, roll the lever 180 degrees and try it again. Reversing the tip puts in the cleanout mode, and reverses the flow through the tip, backwashing it. Once clear, return the tip to the normal position.
These few items always get me up and running, hopefully they'll serve you well also.
Best regards, --W/D--Please feel free to rate this solution. Thanks.

Arms are clogged


You may have debris in the sprayer arm jets. It is usually simple to remove the sprayer arms. Then rinse them well using the sink sprayer for forceful water power. I have sometimes had to use a tweezer to remove bits of plastic, paper, bone, or food particles. Once you've remove the debris, rinse well forcing water through to dislodge any other debris. Once you've reattached the sprayer arms, you should have cleaner dishes. Also, some brands of dishwashers have a pipe that runs up the inside back wall and connects to a pipe that runs under the top shelf. Water flowing through this pipe under the top shelf propels the sprayer arms. If the connection at the back is not flush with the "propel" pipe there won't be enough water pressure to turn the sprayer arm. Check to see if your dishwasher has this type of set up.
I hope this works. If it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution.
Good luck!

When you say nothing happened.
If the machine doesn't run at all, check the cord and plug.
If the machine doesn't pick up paint, read the following:

There are 2 steel balls inside the sprayer.
The first one is in the pipe at the first joint > this ball keeps prime in the pump head.
The second ball is 5" higher, and it is opened and closed by the prime valve
These balls can rust and then the sprayer needs to be replaced
Always store sprayer filled with kerosene

The prime valve goes bad too
And the intake can be clogged with wasp nest or paint.

Let's say your prime valve is okay, and the pipe is not clogged.
Tap the pipe where the ball is located while the machine is running.
See if you can loosen the ball.
If you can't loosen it, take the pipe apart, but be careful because the ball has to fit perfectly to hold the high pressure of a paint sprayer.

If you can get the machine to prime, then tap the next ball to see if machine will fill the hose.

Today,water was coming out of faucet but will now only come out of the sprayer and nothing out of the faucet. This has happened a couple of times recently but "self-corrected". The faucet is 6 years old.


Hi, there are filters that need cleaning periodically. Undo the nut where the water comes out from the tap, use an appropriate sized spanner, remove meshed filter, clean under running water and replace.
Hope this helps

Pull the side cover off the pump of there will be small shaft, turn the shaft it will free it up. You need to make sure that the pump is cleaned out after each use, you can get a cleaning material that you want to run through the hole system, relief valve, spray nozzle etc. it will lubicate everything up. If you did not clean it out it will seeze and you will needs to be freed, chemical will freeze the moto.
