So I got a Duff Airbrush for my birthday in June and was very happy about it. I had used it twice and went to use it a 3rd time and no colour would come out. The air was flowing out fine but no colour. I took it all apart, cleaned it (even though I know it was clean just fine) and still nothing. I put it away and went to deal with it a few hours later and it worked just fine. Had no problems for a while and this morning, I went to airbrush, of course the finishing touches on a cake that was due at noon, and it wouldn't work. I again took it all apart, cleaned it out and nothing.
Anyone have any experience like this or suggestions?

I've had my Duff Airbrush since June and have used it 4 or 5 separate times with no problem at all. I have only used Americolor liquid colors in it. What brand of colors have you used in it. Don't know if that may have something to do with it. I been affraid to use gel colors mixed with vodka for fear it may clog the airbrush and I always make sure I rinse off the colors with water really well after every use. Don't know if this might help you any.

I recently went to Michaels to purchase Duff's Airbrush machine and only the demo box was shown, so i asked an associate to check to see if they had any in the back, and he told me they were told to take them off the shelves because tehre was a recall on them
This is from Toronto, Ontario (Canada) so i'm not sure if this applies to you guys... just what i heard, i thought i'd share =)
