ProCoat 3.5 5 32 32
excellent until... Bought this unit to spray a ceiling with a pulled stucco finish. Set up was fine, follow the instructions and the unit was up and spraying in no time. Worked excellent for my purpose any issue where due to my own inexperience in spraying (over spray etc...) Then clean up time. I knew it was going to take long and was ready for it but what I wasn't ready for is the ferrule that held the suction filter on the pop out while cleaning. Had the hose adapter screwed in and the whole thing popped out of the clear suction hose. Fortunately it only broke after I was able to get the unit mostly clean and the water coming out was near clear. Would still recommend the unit as I am going to assume I just got unlucky and got a bad hose, and with a little tinkering I should be able to cut off the ferrule and get a hose clamp on it to hold it together.

GREAT Sprayer! Give several minutes to prime and you're good to go! This sprayer is great! It took several minutes to prime the first time I used it but once that was done, it worked flawlessly. Give it a chance, you won't regret it! March 12, 2014
No suction out of the box... Purchased the unit about 6 months ago as I knew I would have some projects coming up. Just opened the unit and followed all instructions. It seems like it would be a good sprayer; however, the unit does not suck up anything. I cannot get it to even suck up a can of water...their is simply zero suction. Nothing is clogged as suggested...might just have to move to another brand that is more reliable. January 10, 2014
Do not buy this sprayer. Poorly made. I bought this sprayer to paint the inside of my 40 x 60 shed. This is now the second one of these sprayers I have owned. Set up was very easy. Primed the lines and had everything ready to spray in a matter of minutes. The sprayer worked very good for about 3 hrs. I noticed that the motor continually ran longer and longer to pressurize the system until it would no longer pressurize and would not spray. I took it back to the store and they gave me a replacement. The second sprayer broke after only 1-1/2 of spraying. Same problem. December 30, 2013
Big money saver Time is money, the saying goes, which is why using the Procoat to prime and paint my 2100-sq.-ft. Florida house exterior was an incredible value. For under $200 for the machine and about $500 for the 15 gallons of product, I finished the job in 3 days. This was a $3-to-4,000 job with all the prep work the 23-year-old previous finish required. Even that went better than expected using the Wagner PaintEater, a $60 godsend used to grind away alligatoring (this is Florida, after all). The Procoat lives up to its name, and yet its many homeowner-centric features made it a pleasure to use. Needless to say, my neighbors are slapping me on the back now that my house is back to looking like new. Thanks, Wagner! November 23, 2013
Excellent value Bought a procoat recently and just used for its first job, repainting the front of our local seniors club. The unit performed flawlessly and did a fantastic job, saved time and used less paint than brush and roller would have. It's compact, light, quiet, and handled undiluted premium latex perfectly. I do agree with those who say you must read the manual carefully SEVERAL times before using, and be meticulous when cleaning up. I have read some peoples complaints about this unit and it appears to me they first did not take the time to thoroughly learn how to set it up and use it properly, and second thought that the clean up was too long and difficult. All I can say is I took the time to fully understand the unit, saved at least two hours of rolling and brushing, got a perfect result, and did not mind taking a half hour to carefully clean it afterwards! This tool is a gem at its price point, and should be very carefully cleaned after use, AND OILED AS PER THE MANUAL. good tools are only good as long as you know how to use them properly, and you take care of them properly. Good job Wagner. October 9, 2013
Only used it twice, but works great so far! Just bought it this summer. Tried it for the first time on an old shed that needed painting. Followed the instructions and everything worked fine. Cleaned it up and put it away for a month. 2nd attempt: Got it out, Primed it and then tried to get the paint flow out the gun. Nothing came out. Checked primeing again, that was working. Started cleaning the suggested parts before calling Tech support. Cleaned the input valve and then checked the gun filter. When I was putting the filter back in I noticed that I had installed it upside down in the gun. Glad I checked some parts before calling tech support!!!! Put it back together ands it worked great!!!! My suggestion would be go SLOW the first few times read and check the instructions. Next test will be the first time after the winter. September 25, 2013
This unit can be great or it can be terrible The intake valve is almost impossible to remove without breaking it. if there is a trick, it's not in the book. The plastic intake removal tool is poorly designed, I missed the part about what the notches in the end are for because they don't allow for clearing the spring stop on the intake valve. The unit should come with a viscosity gauge, a little too thick and there is no draw or intermittent draw. Throw away plastic covering for the unit would help in clean-up and the draw tube is too stiff. I can go on but won't. But..... if the planets are aligned and you click your heels just the right way and you've run out of expletives to describe your experience it works great! it really does for a while, maybe oh great there it goes again.....running great!

I was using the sprayer and in the middle of using it, it stopped building pressure. I then cleaned the gun filter and then tried to prime it again. Nothing happened. I then decided to completely clean the sprayer and try it again. I could not get the sprayer to prime in order to clean out the return hose. Even with a water hose hoolked up, it would not suck up any water and spit it out through the return hose like I had previously done. I have only sprayed 7 gallons of paint through the sprayer and I have owned it for 3 days and thoroughly cleaned it after each use. Also, only sometimes will it even turn on when in the prime mode now. And if it does turn on it turns off after a few seconds without spitting anything out of the return tube.

Answer: 
I had this problem as well and my Father in law told me a quick solution. Take the suction hose off the connection and pour some water into the larger black hole until it is full. Then reconnect the suction hose and place it in your paint. Once you do that turn back to prime and turn the machine on. Push down on the red knob by the suction hose on the machine and you should see the water suck up and go into your overflow container. Then your paint will start to come down! Hope that helps! (I do have to do that to prime it each time now, but it works like a charm!)

Answer: 
If you are having problems priming your sprayer you will want to check your inlet valve to make sure that the poppet valve on the inlet valve is free. I recommend removing the inlet valve and inspecting the o-rings to make sure that they are not discolored/damaged in any way, oil them, and put back together. Once you have cleaned and inspected you can test it with water to see if it will prime.

Answer: 
It sounds like the o-ring that belongs on the bottom of the inlet valve, between the metal frame of the valve and the white plastic piece on the bottom of the valve. Give us a call at 1-800-328-8251 if you need help.

I am able to spray but the paint doesn't seem to be atomized as much as it used to be. Like not enough pressure. I took it apart and cleaned everything. No nicks or cuts in the o rings. I did notice that the plunger for the pressure switch does not extend when unit is running. spring inside seems tight. could this be the issue?

Answer: 
The paint must be very thin. You will only be good to spray when the pump runs with a piston pumping noise then shuts off. When it shuts off it is up to pressure, as you paint it will run only in short bursts to keep the pressure up. When it starts running for an extended length of time and the gun starts spitting, it has lost suction. Heavy paints will not draw into the intake strainer properly so the unit will spray more than it can suck into the pump.

Answer: 
It is hard to say from your description exactly what you might have going on. By pressure switch I'm assuming you're referring to the prime/spray knob. If this is the case, it should be tight, and is not likely the issue.

Typically if a machine primes, but does not pressure up you have an issue with your outlet valve. This is the metal valve that your high pressure hose connects to your machine through. Typically an o-ring wears/crack/breaks causing a leak of pressure out of the machine. There are 3 o-rings on the outlet valve, I would check to make sure they are all there.

Please call Wagner Technical Service at 1-800-328-8251 if you would like help troubleshooting. We also have replacement outlet valves available or could help you find someone near you that may carry one.

ProCoat Won't prime

I bought this unit from Home Depot on 6/17/11. It sat in my basement. I did not use it until today, july 22, 2012.
It would not prime. It was never used so everything is clean and lubricated. I tried to prime with just water, no go.
Put cleanup connector on it and connected hose and moved knob to clean. Water came out of gun. Switched to spray, pressure all the way up. No pressure from spray gun but unit cycled like it was working, Water at 2800 PSI should cut cardboard. All it did was get it wet.
I'm wondering if Wagner would extend the warranty just a bit and permit a replacement unit? Again this was never used until today.

Answer: 
Hmmm.....perhaps something is broken inside, or you don't have a good seal. The only times I've had priming problems with mine is when I've allowed the paint level to go below the pump level. First couple times I remove the return hose and placed in a waste bucket like the manual says, but later I realized that I could leave it in the paint bucket and simply prime until I saw some bubbling in the paint...then it worked like a champ after the pressure got to the proper level.
The only other time I had a problem related to priming was when I allowed the spray gun to dry out between coats...after I dissembled the gun, washed it out thoroughly, reassembled and primed again it worked like a champ.

Answer: 
We'll need more information in order to determine that. There's a chance replacing a simple part may get you up and running rather than an entirely new machine. Please call us at 1-800-328-8251 or use our website wagnerspraytech.com to find your nearest service center.

Answer: 
There is a piston noise that can be heard when the unit is pumping correctly and once it reaches the pressure that it is set for the motor stops. After spraying some paint the motor will run in short intervals to keep the pressure up and under load. if prime is lost the unit will run continuously and never reach pressure.

Answer: 
I do not know what this knocking noise would be. Does the machine operate correctly even with this knocking noise? Or are you having issues getting the machine to prime or build pressure? Please Wagner Technical Service at 1-800-328-8251 for help troubleshooting or you can check our website to see if you have a service center nearby.
