Flexio970PaintSprayer is rated 1.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed I bought this on sale at Menards thinking it would be better than filling the cup all the time. Less than one gallon in and the pressure control valve quits working and the sprayer just has a steady stream of paint going everywhere. I've cleaned it, replaced the yellow knob, recleaned it, tried and tried and it won't work. There is nothing I can find online about this issue. So my floor has paint everywhere, I've wasted paint trying and cleaning and trying, my project is 1/4 done and now I have to buy and wait for parts. Not happy nor impressed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer beware I bought this during black Friday for 100.00 off and I still feel cheated. I am renovating my house to put it on the market and it lasted for about 2.5 rooms and even when it was "working" to0o many hiccups or instances of it spitting paint out. Gave it a try a second time on the bedrooms and it basically turned into a paint squirter. Buy something else!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Should have done more research. Prior to buying the Flexio 970, I had used several Wagner products with very little issues. Without a doubt, the Flexio 970 was a horrible purchase and I so wish that I could travel back in time to purchase the 2000 or 3000. The tube inside of the pump housing ballooned and the pump stopped operating so I disconnected the nozzle assembly and purchased an iSpray nozzle front end. I really want a partial refund or reimbursement but the establishment i purchased it at will not honor anything since they determined it was somehow my fault. I am very upset and more than likely, will never purchase another Wagner product.

What do I use to clean off the over spray from the turbo housing

Asked by: Mickey
Cleanup is best accomplished by using the thinner for the product you were spraying. For latex paint, warm water works best. If you wait too long you can use Goof off latex remover, but it may alter the appearance of the plastic. For oil based cleanup use mineral spirits. For more tips call us at technical support at 800-328-8251.

I used my Wagner Flexio 970 yesterday for the first time on my 8 ' cedar fence. I turned the power on and immediately it started spraying stain and would not stop. Is this normal? I would like to control it by the spray trigger once the power is on.

Asked by: SandyW
Most likely the retaining ring on the front of the sprayer is loose. That allows the nozzle to move away from the needle, breaking the seal. If that doesn't do it, call us at 800-328-8251.

Is the 970 an airless sprayer? I need to spray deckover and a .210- .250 nozzle is recommended by the paint brand. Will the inozzle work, can I buy a different nozzle?

Asked by: Charles0306
None of our Wagner sprayers can spray Deckover because of the thickness of the material. This material requires a larger contractor grade sprayer that we do have available through our Titan line of sprayers. Our Titan technical support team can recommend a sprayer that will work best for your needs, you can reach them by calling 1-800-526-5362.

I have a 970 and paint leaked into my ”X-Boost Turbine.” I don’t really know what to do now. Like, how do I get it out? Should I return it since I have warranty?

Asked by: Jade Moon
The unit can't be taking apart to get to the motor. If everything is still working there is no need to do anything but if your unit has stopped working as a result of the paint getting back into the turbine please contact our technical support staff at 1(800)328-8251. We can then look into getting your sprayer working as it should.

Can the Flexio 970 be used to paint ceilings?

Asked by: cheftom
The unit can be used to paint ceilings but you have to make sure that you don't point the gun upwards pass a 45 degree angle. Because the motor is up on the handle if the gun is pointed up at too steep of an angle paint can get back into the motor and burn it out. If this may be a problem we do have sprayers that have the motor detached so you can have more range for spraying. I would recommend the Flexio 690, here is a link to our website showcasing the detail of the sprayer: https://www.wagnerspraytech.com/products/paint-sprayers/flexio-690-paint-sprayer/ If you would like to discuss this sprayer in more detail or have any other questions or needs please contact our technical support staff at 1(800)328-8251.

Both the Flexio 690 and 970 are able to spray chalk and milk paints. The difference between the two units is that while they both come with the iSpray front end(that delivers a roller like finish), only the Flexio 690 comes with the Detail Finish front end(that delivers a smooth finish for projects like cabinets and furniture).
