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 Wagner paint sprayer leaking?
If it is leaking, take off the spray tip and check the atomizer valve and tip washer. If they are loose, tighten them up before putting the tip back. If the tip itself is leaking this could be a different problem altogether. It is important to keep in mind that a little leakage is normal.
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.

What causes a spray gun to spit?
“Spitting” happens when your paint gun’s nozzle is not properly screwed into place. If your paint gun is spitting or dripping paint, it is probably because the nozzle is not screwed on tightly. If you’ve checked your nozzle and find that it is screwed on tightly, you may need to purchase a new nozzle altogether.
How do you fix a spray nozzle?
Unblocking the Nozzle If the nozzle was too tight, your sprayer may now be working. If not, unscrew and remove the cap and hold it under hot, running water or immerse it in vinegar, then use a pin to poke a hole in any blockage in the nozzle itself. If your bottle contains hairspray, soak the nozzle in alcohol.
