Hey guys, so I have a graco x7 and I have used it many times without a problem. I went to use it on my second round of paint and the hose started to leak between the nut and hose spring. I have an attached picture. I tried replacing the hose and the brand new one did the same thing.

No idea why and I can’t find anything on it.

I tried tightening everything with a wrench and no luck. Still spraying out that same location. Could I over tighten it ?

When you tighten the connection you need to use 2 wrenches. The connection should be very tight.
If still leaking replace the 1/4"x1/4" male connection

Did you ever find a solution? I had the same thing happen this weekend. Replaced hose and it did the same thing. Any help would be appreciated.

I am new to paint sprayers and had the same issue with two different new hoses. I called Graco. They said you need to use 2 wrenches. One on the male assembly and one on the hose. Also try swapping out the hose ends. I have attached a photo. I haven't had a chance to try this yet but will this weekend.

UPDATE: This did not work! Call Graco Support 888-541-9788 and ask them to send a new Outlet Fitting. Guy there said that should fix the problem.
