It it probably the electronic control assembly. If it got wet, this would explain it. Cost is like $115 for the part.

Paslode 350i first fix nail gun. Charge both batteries (1 is brand new). Put battery into gun and fire. Im lucky to get one nail from it before gun shows up red.


Sounds like either the battery is bad, or since one is new its possible the contacts in the gun are not making proper contact. Are you sure your charger is working as well ? If you have a volt meter check that the battery does have a charge on it.

Air comes out the nose of my dewalt framing nailer


Again sounds like blown O ring give it a squirt of 3in1 oil and fire it several times (if oil is compatible in your gun). Repair center if that doesn't work. Trash can also get in the air orifice and stop moving parts from moving.

The pin on my Dewalt dc616 cordless finish nail gun is ceasing up. How can i lubricate it? can i spray silicon into the nose of the gun?


Hello, W/D here.

The better way is to disconnect the air line from the gun, and place several drops of light oil in the gun while holding the trigger down. Oil daily. Then, re-connect the hose, and fire a few nails into scrap wood.
Another trick is to spray your nails with WD-40 before you load them into the gun.
Best regards, --W/D--

Dewalt cordless nail gun fires but doesn't seem to feed the nails very well, alot of misfires.


Try another brand of nails -- maybe your gun doesn't like those. Also, blow any dirt out of the nail magazine.

How do you safely remove jammed nail gun?


Not sure exactly what Bostitch framer model you have, but if it is powered by compressed air, as long as you remove the air hose from the nail gun, there should be no risk of the nail gun firing while you remove the jammed nail. There should be a way to access the driver area from the top of the nail gun, even via a latch or a couple screws. Remove the top part of the driver area and that should give you access to the jammed nail, which you can remove. Use long nose pliers or something similar if the nails are really stuck.

Dewalt dc618 nailer is not firing


I have both the DC616 and 618 and have used them sucessfully for about three years. Two main things go wrong. There is a drive belt that breaks (drives the spool that give the energy to drive in the nails), second are two small rubber bands on either side of the drive head that break. The bands can be accessed by taking off the front silver cover, the drive belt is access by spliting the case. Make sure you are using the correct nails or the drive pin may become bent and will jamb repeatedly. Hope that helps!

Nail Gun Problem


Professional-grade varieties are automatic, and fire a nail directly upon pulling the trigger. A semi-automatic nail gun is more appropriate for beginners, since it requires a two step process: pull the trigger and then tap the barrel against the wood. This safety feature protects the user from accidentally firing a nail gun and injuring himself or others.
