HELP! why does my z3000 gun keep clogging!?

I just purchased a new z3000 gun, w a very 'slightly' used nt2000 compressor, from a distributor that I trust pretty well. I have had this system for about 3 weeks now, and it has already clogged (mid spray tan appt.) 3 times! To the point where I have to just attach my m1000 gun instead (so embarrising!) What is going on!? I clean my gun after every day of use, and also run water thru it in between appts., if theres a time gap. PLEASE HELP!!

Are you rinsing it out after each spray you do? If you don't the solution will clog up the gun. You have to empty then spray water thru to get unclogged. If it bubbles in solution container it's still clogged. Good luck.

Just about every time, unless my appts are back to back. Thanks!

Every once in awhile we have to take our guns totaly apart clean it with vasiline detail clean each part and reassemple... I would recomend doing this once a week then rinsing it after each tan with warm water when you spray the gun with the water in it make sure to spray on a cloths and press firmly agains the spray nosel it should push in and clean really good around the needle nose of the gun :) good luck

When cleaning your gun use the manufacture's recommended lube cleaner not just water that should help. I clean my gun once a week but when I go too long without cleaning it is when I have the clogging caused by build-up.
