    Default Tekna Copper leaks air

    My Tekna Copper started leaking air out the tip the moment it's connected to the air line. I think it probably needs a new air valve assembly. Any thoughts on this?

    Thanks

    Sometimes seals are damaged by soaking the gun body in solvent when cleaning the gun. Check out the gun cleaning video at the top of the General Discussion forum. Never soak the gun body in solvent.

    i used to soak my neglected guns in 3924s but it's not available anymore. but you needed to completely disassemble the gun to do it. only metal parts went into the bath.
    now of course, i take better care of my equipment and cleaning happens immediately after the paintings finished.
