Foam Gun Sprayer

Has anyone's sprayer on a foam gun broken? My sprayer keeps getting stuck and I can't get it to stop shooting water. I was wondering if u could just buy another sprayer or if I had to buy a whole other foam gun. I'll get pics of what broke when I'm back on my computer

Do you mean the trigger part is "broken"?

foam gun problem

It's funny you mention that, I have noticed that lately the water keeps spraying after I release the handle, but only for a couple of seconds. Hoping it doesn't get worse.
If you come up with a fix, let us know

I've started to notice the same on my trusty foam gun. It hasn't completely broken though, it still "closes" after a few seconds, but I just usually give it a healthy tug to "close" the stream of water.

Yea, mine was like that as well but now it just won't close :(
I'm going to see if a regular sprayer from home depot or lowe's will work because I love this thing.

Mine sticks too. I've tried lubing the seal and it didn't help. I bought a Gilmore foam gun to replace it. So far it's been ok. I'm kind of addicted to the gun so I have to have one that works without sticking.

On the back of the nozzle, on top of the squeeze grip there is an adjustable screw that can be tightened or loosened that can cause the gun to keep spraying. My GPC foam gun did this and I backed it off a couple of rounds and that fixed the problem.

I take it that the gun you have has this type of nozzle attached to it?

I think mine came from Autopia or Autogeek, and backing off the screw didn't help and neither did lubing it. I have to force the handle back or it won't release. I've never had a nozzle do this before, and unfortunately the soap reservior won't attach to another gun.

I would just put a shut off connector in front of the gun, and see if I could live with that before plunking down more cabbage for a new gun or hitting up the Clause man in 2 months.
