It could be blocked, take the paint out of it and fill it up half way with meths or terps and give it a shake then plug it in and try spraying the meths trough.

Shoots drips


Most airless spray guns spit a bit when you pull or release the trigger because the paint between the spray tip and the paint valve is under pressure but not enough to atomise the paint. If you increase the pressure you may reduce the spit to a point when you don't notice it. A blocked filter could slow the paint getting through to the tip cause lower pressure.

Iam refinishing my wooden desk.Ihavesanded smoothand using my paint gun I'mspraying a clear coat but its not coming out even


It will most likely be your spray gun or the thickness of your clear, my rule of thumb is dip a screw driver in and pull it out, you should count about 4 seconds until it starts to drip, Failing that it may be your technique in spraying

How to used the gravity type


Depends on what you want to do with a spray gun realy.
Gravity is good for easy flowing paints which can be used on things which dont require the gun angle to change much.

SOLVENT BASED PAINTS:
Thin your paint to a bit thicker than milk, fully open the fluid needle travel and without air pull the trigger and see if the paint kind of falls gracefully out of the front, if it just dribbles and rund all over the gun, its either TOO THICK or the fluid tip IS TOO SMALL.

If that works OK try introducing some air gradually and spraying test patterns, even atomisation, (regular paint particles) and a pattern of about 1.5 inches by 6 - 9 inches with every thing set to full on should look like a cigar, if its all one ended your air cap hasa blocked hole, no paint in the middle too much air.

Good luck

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.

MY CAMPBELL HAUSFELD DH5300 PAINT SPRAYER WILL NOT SPRAY PAINT.


there are several issues that can cause this problem.
I will assume you have used the sprayer before so that will eliminate an incorrect air cap. The only other issues are paint viscosity, worn parts and the number one cause improper cleaning.
Be prepared for a complete disassemble of your gun. Depending on what you spray any residue can become hard as cement and it only takes a small amount to cause problems.
Below is a link to the manual that gives an exploded view of your gun.
Hope this helps but if not please let me know and I will trouble shoot further.

I have binks model 21 automatic guns on my striper i installed rebuid kits when testing with water the guns drip water from liquid nozzle but not from needle it seats properly is this normal and will not...


If it is leaking fluid from the holes in the nozzle then the tip is not making good contact with the seat, the seat of the nozzle could also be dinged, or the tip / gun gasket might be bad. If the water is coming from the needle / nozzle seat, the needle or inside seating area of the nozzle could be nicked.

IR 210g - using thicker paint


i dont have so much as a solution as a couple of things you can try to figure out whats going wrong.

make sure your compressor can handle 10.5 CFM @ 50psi
hook up the gun and dry spray it to check for blockages in the air supply
if the air comes through strong and constant, fill the paint hopper with water and spray until empty
if the water comes through constant, add half of the hopper with paint thinned with penetrol or floetrol
if the paint is coming out weak or spotty, make sure the vent cap is open on the paint hopper
if the cap on the hopper doesnt have a vent, try spraying with the cap off or cracked a bit.
if that doesnt work take off the hopper and check the filter for blockages.

i suggest straining all your paint before pouring it into the hopper
