You have to take it apart and there is a ball check stuck open. Tap the ball with a wooden stick to free it up.

What cleaner should i use to clean my sprayer after using latex paint?


Clean it once with water then remove the filters and clean it a second time.
When we store our machines for an extender time we use mineral spirits, even better is to add a small amount of motor oil to the paint thinner ( mineral spirits) to keep the leather packings from drying out.
Even with doing you best job cleaning there is a good chance the inlet ball will stick when you start the machine up. To fix this problem tap the inlet with a hammer. Some machine have built in plungers to do this.

My titan 330 airless paint spray will not shut off while primming


Airless paint sprayers should not turn off while in prime mode. As long as the prime valve is open the motor can pump paint but the system will not build any pressure. Once the prime valve is closed the pump should pump paint into the hose until it gets to the pressure level required to turn the motor off. If the pump does not turn off with the prime valve closed, it could be that the spring in the valve is weak and won't hold the valve closed under pressure. If the hose is up to pressure and the motor just keeps trying to pump paint, you may have a bad pressure sensor or it is disconnected from the circuit board.

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.....

I have a Wagner 834cw15. Spraying fine 10 mins ago. Now...can't get it to prime. Any suggestions? Spraying oil based kilz


http://www.wagnerspraytech.com/portal/loader.php

I cannot find model 834
Check your owner's manual for troubleshooting steps
We used paint sprayers every day for years.
The prime valve goes bad
The steel balls that direct the paint between prime and hose, wear out
The steel ball that holds prime and hose pressure wears out

The steel balls can also get stuck
Turn prime lever on
Take a hammer and tap/bang front of paint sprayer until ball comes loose
I cannot see your sprayer so I don't know where the ball is located
The photo below says, keep lever up >> in your case lever is down or in prime position while tapping

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.

Airless sprayer will not prime Model AL230502LX


Check for a plunger on the bottom of the machine. Pump it several times and try to prime with water. Also, if there is difficulty priming after trying the plunger, switch on in prime, and cycle to paint, back to prime,paint,prime. After several tries, leave it in prime with the pickup tube in water, and pump the plunger again. If this doesn't help, disconnect the hose fron the pump and try again. If you're getting water now, the issue is down the hose, or at the roller/gun.
Hope this helps! --W/D--

AL2340 will not prime. Motor runs but cannot get it to prime


I worked at a tool rental center when I was going to college and learned many useful tips / tricks about airless sprayers. Airless sprayers have two check valves/balls that can stick on their seats or stay open due to chips of paint on seat. Easy method to prime is to remove intake filter from machine, tilt the machine back far enough so that the pick-up tube is pointing up high enough to pour water in tube until full; hold in this position and turn on machine. If water is sucked in turn off machine and tilt machine into pail of water and restart to check for prime. If it still will not prime remove water from pickup tube and use air pressure into tube with bypass valve open. Air pressure will attempt to release the stuck lower check ball. If air pressure does not release stuck ball you may have to use physical pressure against ball. If lower check ball was stuck you can assume that the upper check ball is probably stuck also. An aid to loosen stickey valves is to pour solvent into pickup tube with machine tilted back as before leave overnite. Enjoy
