Why is my paint gun not spraying right?
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.
Can you run paint thinner through a paint sprayer?
Often one can run some lacquer thinner through the pump for awhile and get out most of the old dried debris if the sprayer does not have too much in it. If your sprayer has a flexible intake tube, flex it, move it around while running the thinner through it to try to dislodge the dried material inside it.
Do I need to thin paint for airless sprayer?

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.
What would cause a paint sprayer to not prime?
