I had this same problem and came here to see if it had an answer. None of the
above helped me but I just fixed it! Beteewn the nozzle and the body is a flat,
soft, plastic washer with lots of holes to allow the air through. When the
retaining ring is screwd on there is meant to be a perfect deal. As the plastic
washer had become less flexible the seal was not happening because the there was
too big a gap. I filed back the surround to the nozzle so that it seats on the
base and now the washer seals it up perfectly. I'd include a photo, but how?
Would say that all of them, but more correctly all the usenet groups
would probably be accurate too.
But then I am a dinosaur using a usenet reader via Gianews.
Just like to complain to Google get off my lawn, ya know.

Um, here's a hint: Basshammer's post came from Google Groups.
For the reason I already explained, the References header in
that post is incorrect. Basically, it's GIGO.
You can go read the RFC if you want to know how it's all
intended to work. It's not really a relevant subject here.
The OP states that the vent is open. I'd be more suspicious of a
blocked pickup tube. His test of turning it upside down is not really a
very good test for this condition. I'd take the pickup tube right off,
and run a cleaning brush through it with solvents. At the same time,
inspect the head of the gun where the tube attaches. It only takes a
little bit of clog to mess these things up.
Yup - these issues almost always turn out to be cleaning issues, or
tightening down the packing (though probably not in this case), and more
rarely, a rebuild kit. Cleaning - that's the number one issue and the
first thing to go for.
