Ok I just sprayed about 40 cabinet doors with zero issue and was honestly blown away at how this $250 gun performed. It laid out SW latex like a Laquer.
Problem is it just stopped spraying with 2 doors left. 3 hours with me and shop covered in paint and what a mess. Tried everything just couldn’t spray. I disassembled, cleaned, etc. Nothing. This is 1st gallon through gun and I was told it needed rebuild kit. Tons of same exact scenario on the web.
I then noticed that cup was 1/2 full and when I filled with water to flush it started to work a bit. Disassembled again and with some dumb luck while cleaning noticed a pinhole in the suction tube.
I wrapped with some self vulcanizing tape and it worked flawless again. Even Graco said I needed a rebuild and all it needed was the hole fixed.
Just a heads up to someone covered in paint searching for help.
