Troubleshooting tips for your Wagner products
- Excessive overspray—At times, you may find that your paint sprayer is over spraying paint. Adjust the controls to decrease the air pressure.
- Spitting from spray gun—If your spray gun is spitting, you probably need to refill the paint. Check that the paint container is filled. If there’s already enough paint, then you may have an air bubble. In this case, check the hose and remove any excess air.
- Caulk won’t come out of gun—When your caulk gun won’t produce caulk, it could be because the initial caulk has hardened. Remove any hardened pieces to allow for easy caulk flow. Next, check the trigger. Remove the caulk tube and assure that the trigger moves freely. If it has difficulties moving, clean the caulk gun.
- Paint leaks from tip—A leaky sprayer might be due to a loose atomizer valve or tip washer. Tighten the pieces to fix this problem.
- Tailing spray pattern—When paint is too thick, it can cause an undesirable pattern to come from your sprayer. To fix this problem, you can choose to buy a lighter paint or mix in a paint thinner.
Top five Wagner pressure washer parts
- Carburetor—The carburetor allows gas to get to the engine. If you experience issues with your pressure washer not starting, this could be a root cause. Check that the carburetor isn't clogged with old gas. Clean or replace the carburetor if it’s clogged.
- Hose—The pressure washer hose transports water to the gun. Hoses take quite the beating over time because of constant tossing and water pressure. If you find holes or tears along the hose, you'll need to replace it.
- Engine—The engine is used to power your washer. It's important to perform routine tune-ups on your engine to assure it continues working efficiently. If your pressure washer won’t start, it could be due to a bad engine that may need to be replaced.
- Gun—The gun is what is used to direct water flow. The pump produces a high-pressure stream that shoots out through the nozzle when activated by the trigger. If the spray isn't coming out of the nozzle, check for things like clogs in the gun or nozzle.
- Brush—The brush is an attachment that can be used for extra cleaning. With the help of high water pressure and scrubbing, you can get some of the best results in surface cleaning. If you're noticing uneven cleaning with the brush, check to see if some of the bristles are worn.
