Why is paint sprayer leaking?
If the spray gun is dripping just after you have finished painting this is most commonly caused due to wear or damage of your fluid nozzle and fluid needle. You can start by inspecting the fluid needle to see if their is any obvious deformation to the needle.
How do you stop a paint sprayer from dripping?
DON’T SPRAY TOO CLOSE & KEEP IT THIN A thin coat of paint is much less likely to drip than a thick one so keep your distance. I typically spray one thin coat over everything, let it dry for 30-45 minutes, and then spray a second thin coat for complete coverage.
Why is my paint sprayer losing pressure?
If you are experiencing lost or low pressure on your sprayer, check to see if the filter in the backpack is clogged. Some clogs can be fixed as easily as spraying water into the empty backpack to flush out the filter. Rinse out the tank a few times and see if that fixes the problem.
What would you do if your paint does not spray from your gun or comes out blotchy?
If your paint gun is not spraying paint at all, it’s most likely due to a clog either in the air vent hole or the hose. Clean any dried paint with a toothpick, and use a cleaning solvent to clear any remaining gunk. If you’ve cleaned your paint gun and find that it still isn’t spraying, take a look at the air supply.
Why does my airless paint sprayer leaving streaks?

Why is my Fimco sprayer losing pressure when I pull the sprayer handle?
One issue that commonly occurs is Fimco sprayers not building pressure. If this happens, you may need to clean your filter screen (which could be clogged) or clean the check valve. There may be debris in the check valve, or it may even be damaged.
What would cause a paint sprayer to not prime?
If the siphon hose has a hole in it or is not tightly secured to the airless sprayer the system may not be sealed and as a result, may suck air in while trying to pick up material. This can lead to the system not pressurizing well.
