Question about Air Tools & Compressors

I have a brand new Ryobi Spray gun--you can hear the motor going but there is no suction going through. It has all been cleaned. We just got it last week and have only used it once so it should be in good shape--any ideas?

Campbell Hausfeld HD4200 spray gun. Will not spray plain water. no siphon effect at feeder tube. What to check?

Check for air leaks above the top of the feeder tube. If it leaks air there, then no suction. Bad gaskets often cause this.

Kenmore model 11628015700 suction motor won't run

Sometimes a motor will get a stuck carbon brush. Remove the motor from the machine and spray it around the carbon brushes with lectra motor cleaner. Do this outside FYI. This is a CRC product.
Next try hooking it up to a pair of leads, gator clips etc.. than you can plug into an electrical outlet to test it before reinstalling it. If it pops and sputters your motor is gone. PS Kenmore parts run 150 percent of outher brands so when you go to replace it maybe look at a manufactures brand directly. IF you can not disassemble the machine you can tap with medium force around the motor housing with a rubber mallet. Plug the machine in and turn it on while you tap the housing. Sometimes you will hear the motor come to life as the brush is knocked free.

My Devilbiss EGA-503-390F suction feed spray gun won't spray any materials with a viscosity greater than water. I purchased this gun in March 2010, and it was fine. I have cleaned, chnaged the needle...

The EGA-503 only comes with one set of air cap and Nozzle Size (!). And this is suitable for light and precise touch-up jobs. If you want to spray something heavier, then you would have to change the set-up, i.e. larger nozzle. But for EGA-503 only 390 (air cap) and F (nozzle) are available. Theoretically you could check for the predecessor EGA-502 which had different set-ups, incl. nozzles called "EGA-608-G" and "EGA-608-E". However, they are only limited available and you would have to change needle and air cap too. This makes the whole thing probably too costly.....

We are using an a Campbell Hausfeld Airless Spray Gun and wondering where to buy a new nozzle should it not last for the whole house? We live in South East, SA

the nozzle should last as long as it is cleaned properly when the day is finished. Walmart sells Campbell equipment and/or many hardware stores do as well, the tip may not need to be specifc to your brand to fit, take the tip with you when go shopping. Also, check with your Cities maintenance department and find out where they buy there tools and parts, most likely you will find the parts you need there.

I am using DeVILBISS JGA_510 cinventional spray gun. The pressure pot system is showing constant pressure , but the gun is sputtering and not getting an even paint flow. I have changed paint lines, put on...

First start with the basics, whats the paint VISCOCITY ON A FORD 4 CUP ??
Or Does it run nicely off the stick you stirred it with??

If its thin enough to go up the tube and lines, whats the fluid tip and air cap combo your using?? maybe start with a EX fluid tip (1.8mm) and 30b air cap (cos that sprays everything!!) and reduce from there.

Whats the pot pressure?? Is it a KBII pot? cos they suffered with the air inlet blocking, so IT SHOWS GOOD PRESSURE, but doesnt have it in the pot!

Does it spray anything?? thinners?

have you cleaned the suction tube going down into the paint bucket? if so did you make sure the check valve was reassembled correctly. if not it will never pull the paint up the suction tube into the pump to the gun.

No suction

This model comes in either suction feed or pressure feed. For example a 6211-4307-9 is a suction model. There are different air caps and needles depending on feed style. I assume your'e using either a 82-545 or a 82-555 suction cup attached to the gun. Make sure the tubing is tight, and that the vent hole in top of the cup isn't clogged. See for detailed tip combinations.

Campbell hausfeld paint sprayer has no suction

The same thing happened to me before if the paint is too thick. Another reason was when the gun toppled over and paint went into the spring and needle in which case you will have to take it apart and clean it.
