The probable cause is that one or both of the poppets that control the the flow is/are stuck allowing the water to exit the nozzle and blowing off the caps. These poppets should make a rattling sound when you shake the blaster. If they are stuck try giving the whole blaster a good soak in hot detergent or turn it pointing downwards into the sink and connect it to the hot tap and see if that frees up the poppets.

Your are right.
I can blown down them and is resets them and then later is will fire the collar off and wash the ceiling.
I have soaked in vinegar - thinking it be limescale.

Hot soak - will try. Also perhaps a reverse flush?

Thanks.
