Yes, yo can repair it. there is compound problem with the unit. Please use this advice for future to save yourself time and money.

Before you store any painting equipment for longer than few days:

1. Strip equipment to base pieces,
2. Clean them with paint stripper
3. Wash them in water and then dry them through
4. Wash them in solvent, dry them, put vaseline on rubbing parts
5. Store in dust protecting rags or bags

You just used your gun without cleaning it, that was part of the problem, gqasket on the bottom of the piston was weakened by paint and two years of storage, you did not strain paint, you just used it directly from the can. chunky bit from the can (there are always bits forming around the toip and sides of the can) clogged piston, giving impression that there is no paint, you incresed the pressure and gasket give up on you...

Just follow advice, clean the gun, put it to pieces, find which gasket (I suspected that this one will be from the bottom of the piston), most of hardware stores have spares for these guns, buy exactly same dimension, put gun back together and this should solve your problem.

I do that sort of the "surgery" on the tble with several layers of old newspapers under and last laer butchers paper, I put my pieces in order in which i removed them so I can easy put them back together. Always strain paint, always clean gun...

Hope this will help solve your problem :-)

What cain of oil a cant uuse for wagner 1250 hp


Your Wagner 1250 is a diaphragm airless sprayer, which uses hydraulic oil to push the diaphragm, so the oil must be hydraulic quality as it gets quite hot; don't use any other type. The Wagner part number for their quart size is 0088009

Does a Wagner Paint Crew sprayer take lubricant?


The Wagner Paint Crew airless sprayer does not require oil for its operation like full professional sprayers. The piston is off-set from the pump chamber with the inlet and outlet valves opposite each other, however you need to protect the parts from corrosion between use and Wagner recommend running some light oil through it after cleaning. If you will be using it in a day or so for water based paint, you could run a 10% solution of their EasyGlide through it.

How to repack the sprayer


The packings are static and self adjusting. The repack kit includes the piston so it replaces everything. Just buy the kit and follow the instructions. Try Scott at American Airless on 770 4771337.

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.

Pumps in up stroke but not in down stroke


Single stroking: You have something stuck in one of the valves, probably the inlet valve.

Graco magnum paint sprayer won't prime


Airless won't prime- I always start trouble shooting an Airless that won't build/hold pressure look at sump hose inlet filter (the hose that goes into the paint if its got paint debris on it clean off filter and pour the paint thru a strainer bag into a clean 5 gal bucket-also remove the filter housing on the spayer and clean and flush and replace filter and housing- the shaft or the metal sleave has two ball bearings called "check balls" that maybe stuck turn on sprayer and put a piece of wood on shaft and give it a few good taps this will knock the check balls loose if after all this fails then you need to have new packings put in becuase the old ones are worn this is pretty easy to see because the rod the compresses the paint will have signs of paint on it indicating that the packings are worn.. Note keep rod and other moving parts oiled ith graco throat seal and finally Graco sprayers with the X on them are there (Graco) home owner line of sprayers that sell at home depot they are rated for only a certain amount of Gal per year keep it in good condition and cleaned store with coro-check inside of the pump when you are done using it.....
