Ambic teat sprayer not sucking up teat spray

    As the title says, my ambic isn't taking up the teat spray. It isn't punctured anywhere and the barrel is half full. Is there any common issue I am missing?

    Blocked filter?

    Could be a diaphragm or a valve.

    Is there any sign of teat spray leaking when you take cover off?

    And is it clicking?



    There is a service kit for them.

    Manual is here there is not a whole lot to them, but any air leak at all will stop it working.

    Thanks Emaherx

    It is clicking. There is a bleed hole cleaning tool inside it but I can't see the bleed hole anywhere.

    No teat spray leaking when I take off the cover.

    I will have more time tomorrow to go looking for an air leak.
