Take the tip off and make sure it is completely clean; minute paint buildup can easily cause this problem

Iam useing sherwin williams carclad hs spray paint and having prabloms with runing tryed little thinner more thinner low psi hi psi just can not get it right


If its running in spot places it may be your fan width is not wide enough and your spray pattern is to tight so your over laps are causing paint build up hence the runs, use a nice big wide fan pattern and run about 30psi

Paint gun not shooting correctly


Seeing how you have really stated what the problem is (spitting, clogged, won't shut off, fan pattern wont adjust Etc) and there could be several different things wrong- lets go over some basic spraying A B C'S- always strain the paint through a strainer bag or cone this will remove any debri that might clog the tip, *THINNING when you spray or atomize paint it should always be thinned it will actually cover much better if you thin it with the appropriate solvent water for latex thinner for oil base you want to stay in the 15% range alittle bit more on hot days. The shape of the spray that comes out of the tip is called "fan pattern" or "tip fan" "fan size" you can adjust the fan pattern from 9:00 - 3::00 or sideways to straight up and down or to a small circle this is done by moving the "tip housing retainer" keep a piece of cardboard to practice and see. IMPORTANT:When you have finished spraying you need to clean the entire gun by running the right solvent through the gun untill nothing but clean solvent is coming out dissemble the gun remove and clean needle and needle housing this is not very complicated and is paramount to maintaining any spray equipment for sure the gun....

Wide open as in wide open throttle?? You mean the engine is racing? Something is wrong with the throttle controls, or the throttle valve in the carburetor may be sticking open. Look down the carb throat. At its base will be the throttle valves-"butterfly" valves just like the choke valve on top of carb. The throttle valve should be closed at rest, or at idle, or when gas pedal is not moved. Rotate the throttle lever on the carburetor by hand (when gas pedal is pressed down, the throttle is rotated). The throttle valve at the bottom of the carb should open and close with the throttle lever.
If the valve is sticking, spray some carburetor cleaner down it, and spray the outside clean, too. Work the throttle back and forth to make sure it is free to move.
For a high idle, have the carburetor adjusted. Timing should be checked, too-that can cause a high idle, but wouldn't cause it to go wide open.
Let us know what you find. Good luck.

Dell insipirion 530s power light stays orange fan running wild


Hi deb lewis,
the orange power light is your warning that your power supply is going bad. I'd replace the power supply with the same size or larger (preferred)

How do you adjust the spray on the Ryobi Paint station? How do you get it to spray more like a fan. it is brand new and it sprays in a straight stream instead of a spray fan.


It would have a tip that is adjustable and you can adjust the fan that way or if it isn't adjustable then the unit may have interchangeable heads for different spray patterns.

How to adjust the controles on my hvlp spray gun


your top adjuster is for the air (or to adjust the fan of the gun) turn it to make the fan wide or small.

the next one right below the top is for the material (paint, stain, etc) turn it in for less material or out for more. if you unscrew this one all the way you will be able to access the needle.

these is the two mane adjusters on a hvlp gun. you may have another adjuster on the bottom of the handle. this is your air presser regulator and will control the amount air going through the gun but i always use my own.
hope this helps

I get it started it runs as long as you have it wide open but you let of the gas it dies


This might require adjustment of the hi speed carb screw, the lo speed, and the idling screw as well.
The engine needs to be good and warm, you need to be certain you have a fresh fuel mixture in the tank, and you should check the air filter because it too affects the way the saw will run at low speed and idle.

I would start with the hi speed adjustment screw since wi does start. Fire it up and run it a bit to make sure you have it warmed up.

You may need someone else to help you hold the saw while you make these adjustments. With the throttle wide open, turn the hi speed screw slowly, in increments of 1/4 turn, to the left. It may be just a bit off. The objective here is to turn one way until it sputters or runs a little rough. Then turn it the other way until the engine smooths out. Continue to turn in the same direction until it again runs rough. Then turn back about halfway between those two points.

It should run well at wide open throttle. Place your screwdriver in the low speed adjustment screw and turn to the left, in small 1/4 increments like you did before. The objective here is to adjust to the point where the saw will throttle up quickly and smoothly, and more and more from an idling position, or as close as you can get.

If you find you don't get that, and the ramp up is choppy and unsmooth, adjust in the other direction. Eventually you should get to a point where you have quick response to your throttle. You should get to a point where it runs without being wide open.

If it fires up easily and throttles up smoothly but won't idle, the you need to adjust the idling screw. Adjust it until the chain begins to move on the bar when you let the throttle go. Once you get to the point where it idles with the chain moving, back off the adjustment until the chain just stops moving.

Make sure the air cleaner is clean. You may have to clean the carb with spray carb cleaner while it is running at full throttle. If you do, spray a tiny bit at a time, as it will almost kill the engine.

Finally, after all this work, invest in a new spark plug, even if the one in it isn't that old.

Homelite saw runs wide open(homelite ut10520)


There is a recall on the UT models, all you have to do is call the costumer service center for homelite. they will give you a number for the closest warrenty center that will adjust you throttle cable free of charge. I went through two UT 10520's before i started researching the problem.
