You can clean the nozzle in multiple ways. One of the most effective ones is to submerge it in water (or other solvents), leave it to rest for a couple of minutes, and blow air through the nozzle while it’s wet. If you cannot blow the paint out, feel free to use cotton buds or a needle to eliminate the residue.
Why is my paint sprayer not working?
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.
What would cause a paint sprayer to not prime?

Why is my Wagner paint sprayer not working?
