I dont know why but all of a sudden my airbrush is just blwing air without the trigger being used. It does come out more when I use the trigger.
Does anyone know how to fix it?
Thank you

yes, the nozzle is either loose or dirty

the nozzle is that teeny tiny little needle thing you need the key to get off the tip.

VERY tiny, do not drop it!

use your instructions to dissasemble that part and clean it.

Also check the screw that holds the needle in...sometimes it gets loose enough to let the needle not fit snug.

Check the back of the gun it may be loose and you might want to unscrew the front and back of your gun then re-screw it back again if it is not screwed right and any area it will interrupt the flow and if you have airbrush cleaner let it run though the gun and rinse with hot water I hope this helps.

Learned YEARS ago the best cleaner for my airbrush are denture tablets dissolved in warm water. Soak the whole the liquid thru it and it cleans out even the darkest stains and gunk! Just do not leave it in the solution more than 5-10 min. and rinse well in hot water.

Can't remember who told me about this...think it was in Frances Kypers class???
