Why is my airless sprayer not building pressure?
If this is the issue you experience the most likely cause is that the transducer is worn out. The transducer signals to the airless pump that pressure is needed and signals to run the pump to build pressure. Failure to build pressure often indicates that you need to replace the transducer.
How do you prime a Campbell Hausfeld paint sprayer?
How Do I Prime a Campbell Hausfeld Airless Paint Sprayer?
- Grasp the brass quick connect coupler on the turbine.

Why does my paint gun leak?
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.
Why is my Fimco sprayer losing pressure when I pull the sprayer handle?
If you’re experiencing little to no pressure or the pump is not priming and you’ve checked your filter screen and it’s clean, you may need to clean the check valve. Remove the head of the pump, which is held on by about 6-7 screws. Most times this will restore most, if not all of the prime of a pump.
Do I 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.
How do you keep a paint sprayer from clogging?
It’s easier than you think: Seven tips to help prevent clogging!
- Wipe the air cap.
- Use a different type of spray gun (different nozzle diameters, round, or spiral-shaped spraying)
- Introduce time delays when atomizing.
- Soak the air cap in cleaning liquid when spraying stops.
- Adjust spraying distance and angle.
How does a airless sprayer work?
An airless sprayer works by pumping paint at a very high pressure, up to 3,000 psi, through a hose and out a tiny hole in the spray gun tip. The tip is designed to break up the paint evenly into a fan-shaped spray pattern of tiny droplets.
