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

Misfires new gun


If your using refills that have wire holding the nails together.
Check to see if bits of wire, debris is collecting in around the striking hammer. I switched to paper and never looked back. Must have gone through 5k worth of nails and rarely jams. Other things to check,
1. Check the striking hammer, make sure it is not bent or damaged.
2. Check air pressure, Low pressure can cause jamming, misfires.
3. If the tool needs pneumatic oil, 2-3 drops before you start good rule of thumb.
4. Check spring return. Sufficient pressure must be maintained or the nails will not feed properly. Misfires, incorrect feed, jamming etc.
I had a Hitachi brad nailer and it was horrible. Fire 1 brad nail would jam or misfire. Did everything I could think of nothing worked. Put it up, got a Rigid brad nailer and never looked at the Hitachi again. :)
Sometimes you just get a lemon! (PS I understand you have a framing nail gun. Brad nail gun above is used for an example)
Hope this helps

There should be a depth adjustment on the gun. This allows you to control how deep the nails sink. The adjustment is usually on front face of gun and just above the tip. You might want to contact paslode to see if they can give you any ideas .

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.

Paslode framing nailer: compressor powered, hisses but will not shoot nails, appears to be in the sliding mechanizism that touches the wood first before it will shoot, help


I've used paslode for years and whenever there was a "hiss" of air and no fire- it was o-rings- When were the o-rings changed last? And how do you know they are in 'good shape'? You can't tell by just looking at them. If that isn't the problem then I can't help. Just as an aside- do you oil the gun (down the air intake nipple) every time you use it? Lack of oil will wear out o-rings fast. Sorry if this isn't overly helpfull but most gun problems are o-ring or seal related unless you've worn out or damaged a mechanical part.

Gun fires, leaves good indentation, no nail. WCE working properly, took head apart to look for jam but nothing in there and am using compatible nails. Also oiled it but no luck. Was working fine doing...


Remove nails and use thin tool to push driver all the way up to top of cylinder. If the gun fires one nail then skips, the driver is not returning to top of cylinder. If no nails fire, then nails are not feeding into proper position. Driver must return to top to allow nails to feed into position. Most common problems are bent driver, worn piston oring and bad batch of nails(head too large). Good luck
