    I have the side kick power roller & I am going back to the old fashioned way because it doesn’t have a shut off valve so before you know it there is paint running all over. I did like it the first time I used once I figured out you have to manually shut it off. I bought mine on line. I would just like to know why no automatic shut off valve?

    1. Hi Faye – The button on the handle is how you turn it on/off. You shouldn’t leave it running the entire time you’re working or, yes, you will end up with paint everywhere! You should press the button on the handle occasionally while rolling to allow the roller to re-fill with paint, but it shouldn’t be left running for more than 5-10 seconds at a time!

    Purchased this item last week to do painting in my home, started using it and before I finished the wall it got hot and caught on fire. YES FIRE! I am letting everyone know this is a bad investment, do you painting by hand. I purchased this from Lowes, never again, save your money and go the old fashion way. Be safe and carefull.

    1. Oh my! I haven’t ever heard of this happening – did you contact Wagner? I’ve been using mine for years now.
