Why will my paint sprayer not prime?
First, check the upper and lower ball and seats of the airless pump. 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.
Why is my paint sprayer not sucking up paint?
Check that the filters and nozzles are clean, and if they are letting the material flow. Best thing to do is to remove and clean them or if they are damaged replace them. If your machine is not sucking, another possible solution could be to check the position that the pressure valve is in.
Why is my paint sprayer not smooth?
Sometimes, the paint can get clogged in the nozzle which will make the paint spit out. This will not give you a smooth texture and you’ll have to sand it off later. If the paint does spit, you’ll most likely need to clean the nozzle or switch it out with another nozzle if you have one lying around.
How long does it take to prime a paint sprayer?

Which is better Graco or Titan?
The winner here is Graco, at least with the two sprayers I own. Performance wise, the Contractor and RX-80 spray guns by both companies are great, but the filters in the gun and manifold of my Graco sprayers are a lot faster to disassemble and clean than Titan.
Why is my Wagner paint sprayer not working?
When your Wagner paint sprayer won’t prime there are a few solutions to the problem. It is entirely possible that the priming or spraying valve is clogged with old material and gunk. If it’s not the prime or sprayer valve, it could be either the outlet or inlet valves. These can be unblocked by using the filter tab.
Do you need to thin paint for airless sprayer?
They’re extremely viscous, so whenever you spray them with a handheld, HVLP, or small airless sprayer, you need to thin them down. That’s true when you’re using anything other than a big airless unit. If you’re using a handheld or HVLP system to paint, you’re probably going to have to use as much as 20-30% water.
Do airless sprayers use more paint?
Airless paint sprayers are extremely popular, but also tend to waste more paint on average than other types of spray guns. Your run-of-the-mill airless paint sprayer will waste up to 40% of the paint that you use, and even more if you aren’t operating the spray gun properly.
