Cons:Everything- especially the fact that I blew $199 on the thing and now it's junk.
Sprayed 4 gallons of latex then it failed to pressurize.

How to fix a non-pressurizing Wagner Paint Crew;
1. Remove Outlet Valve.
2. On the non-threaded end of the valve is a tiny O-ring which is about 1/4" in diameter.
3. Remove the O-ring.
3a. The non-threaded end of the Outlet valve looks like a castle turret.
4. Using a pointed object- remove the "seat" that the O-ring sits in. Pry the seat out by prying between the "castle turret". The seat just removed might be damaged. I can't find replacement seat.
5. The O-ring you see once the "seat" is removed in step 4 should be broken. It's mounted on a white plastic plunger that has a spring.
6. Go to a hardware store and get a replacement O-ring that'll replace the broken one in step(s) 5 and 3. These O-rings cost about 2 cents.
7. Put the valve back together and re-install it in the machine.
8. Test sprayer by filling the hopper with water. If it holds pressure you'll know it- the motor will cycle off and on as you spray or stop spraying.
Don't be happy- the thing is still a piece of junk.
