Operation
Adjusting the Pressure
Storage
Short Term
• To reduce the risk of injection, never hold your
hand, body, fingers or hand in a rag in front of the
spray tip when cleaning or checking for a cleared
tip. Always point the gun toward the ground or into
a waste container when checking to see if the tip is
cleared or when using a self cleaning tip.
• When you spray into the paint bucket, always use
the lowest spray pressure and maintain firm metal
to metal contact between the gun and container.
• To stop the unit in an emergency, turn the engine
off. Then relieve the fluid pressure in the pump and
hose. See Pressure Relief Procedure, page 7
When adjusting the pressure, turn the Pressure Control
Knob clockwise to increase pressure and counterclockwise to decrease pressure. Always use the lowest pressure necessary to completely atomize the material. If
more coverage is needed, use a larger tip rather than
increasing the pressure.
NOTE: Operating the sprayer at higher pressure than
needed wastes material, causes early tip wear, and
shortens sprayer life.
1. Flush sprayer with compatible solvent before storing, then fill the pump and hoses with an oil based
solvent such as mineral spirits or Graco or Airlessco
Pump Armor.
•
•
For oil base paint: flush with mineral spirits
For water-base paint: flush with water, then mineral spirits and leave the pump, hose and gun
filled with mineral spirits.
Long Term
For longer storage, use Graco or Airlessco Pump Armor.
Shut off sprayer, Relieve Pressure, page 7, and make
sure prime/pressure relief valve is left open.
Start Up After Storage
Before using water-base paint, flush sprayer with soapy
water and then a clean water flush. When using oil-base
paint, flush out the mineral spirits with the material to be
sprayed.
NOTE: Always store unit indoors.
NOTE: Check the spray pattern. The tip size and angle
determines the pattern width and flow rate.
Shutdown
1. Relieve Pressure, page 7.
2. Clean the tip and gun as recommended in the separate Gun Manual supplied with the gun.
3. If spraying water-based material or a material that
could harden in the sprayer overnight, flush the
sprayer after use. See Flushing, page 8.
4. For long tern shutdown or storage, see Flushing,
page 8.

Daily Maintenance
Keep displacement pump packing nut/wet cup 1/3 full of
Airlessco Throat Seal Oil at all times. The TSO helps
protect the packings and rod.
Inspect the packing nut daily. If seepage of paint into the
packing nut and/or movement of the piston upward is
found (while not spraying), the packing nut should be
tightened just enough to stop leakage. Overtightening
will damage the packings and reduce the packing life.
To increase brush life, new brushes (Part #331778) for
110 volt) need to have a run in period. After changing
brushes, set the machine for spraying. With a bucket of
Pump Conditioner and water, a 50’ 1/4” airless hose, airless gun and tip on unit, open the prime/pressure relief
valve and switch on. The pump will now prime. With
pump running in the prime mode, turn the pressure control knob to high pressure. (The pump has to cycle fast
with no pressure in the pump). Run the pump for 20 minutes and the brushes will be run in.
331778
Electric Motor Maintenance
Lubrication
The motor is supplied with pre-lubricated ball bearings,
lubricated for the life of the bearing.
Motor Brushes
Motor brushes need periodic inspection and replacement as wear indicates. Standard brushes have an initial length of 1” and should be replaced when they are
worn to a length of 1/2”. Brush wear is greatly influenced
by individual application and it is recommended that
brush wear be checked at early intervals of operation in
order to determine future required inspection.

Control Settings
Make sure machine is plugged into the wall.
Verify the on-off switch is in the ON position
and the pressure control knob is turned all the
way to the right (clockwise for maximum pressure).
Thermal Breaker
Use multi-meter to test the breaker for continuity or replace with a new breaker. If breaker
reads good, see Power Source.
Pressure Control Assembly
(Board)
If the power indicating light is still out after
checking the control settings, fuse and power
source, replace the pressure control assembly.
3A1182B
Troubleshooting
Problem
Machine does not start
Cause
Motor
Solution
Remove the motor brush covers and turn the
machine ON. Set the potentiometer (POT) at
maximum pressure and check for DC voltage
across both brush terminals. It should read
greater than 80 volts DC.
If you have DC voltage, turn the machine off
and unplug it from the wall. Check to make
sure the brushes are making good contact
with the armature. Replace the brushes if they
are less than 1/2” long. If the brushes are
good, replace the motor.
If you do not have DC voltage, see Sensor.
Sensor
Plug another sensor board into the board and
perform the zero calibration procedure. If the
machine starts to run, the sensor is bad. If
there is no replacement sensor available, use
a multi-meter to test the resistance across the
red and black wires of the sensor (be sure to
test the plug). You should read 1.5 - 3.5k
ohms. A faulty sensor usually reads no continuity (open).
If the sensor passes all the tests, see Pressure Control Knob (Potentiometer).
Pressure Control Knob (Potentiometer)
Plug another potentiometer (POT) into the
control board. If the machine starts, the old
POT is bad.
When a replacement POT is not available,
remove the POT lead (with the machine
turned off) from the control board and test the
resistance between the red and black wires
(be sure to test at the plug). The resistance
should read between 8-12k ohms. If it is outside of this range replace the POT.
If there is DC voltage at the motor brushes
and the sensor and pressure control knob are
functioning, replace the pressure control
assembly.
