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

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.

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.

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.

Nail Guns Types


The real different between nail gun's models are the sort of power supply they use. A nail gun can be powered by compressed air, electricity or batteries, or electromagnetism. Some small guns are powered by butane, a fuel that causes a small explosive charge to drive the nail into the wood. The most common type of nail gun is the pneumatic nailer, which works with compressed air.
