    Hi,
    I gave my airbrush a complete clean.
    I let the parts from the side where the air comes out in airbrush cleaner for about a day.
    Now I have put everything together it gives air but no paint. And the cup gives bubbles which means there's something stuck.
    But I cleaned everything. I don't know how to solve this problem. Can someone give me advice?

    Did you remember to tighten the needle chuck in the back? Is the needle moving with the trigger?

    snug you head base up a little more to make sure the nozzle is sealing in the brush body.

    Yes the needle was tighten but when I placed the needle I had a little bit more resistance than usual.
    I think I will order such an Iwata cleaning set, but I'm not sure if I need a new nozzle.

    You may have some old paint build up in the nozzle.

    Now it works again. I used a higher pressure on the compressor.
    I will wait with the nozzle.
    Thank you for all the feedback.
