This happens to my gun too. You probably need to oil the gun once in a while. Here is how you fix it:
Disconnect the gun from the compressor first don't wanna get hurt or anything like that. There is a pin that shoots the nail out well that pin is jammed so what you have to do is push that pin to the original position. using a flat head screwdriver would help you to push that pin back into place. Let me know how that turns out please. I pretty sure that is the problem with your gun. Make sure you lubricate the Nailer once in a while.

My 601 won't shoot any spikes it just leaves a 1/4 '' indent were nail should be?


If you're getting an indent in the wood from the driver, the gun is working properly. If the gun isn't driving fasteners/nails it's because the nail isn't under the driver when it's activated. Several things could cause this: Having the wrong angle nails in your gun. There is something in the feed path of the nails preventing them from feeding fully into the nose piece. The feed shoe is jambed or feed shoe spring is broken.

Nail gun problem


This is a bottom fire tool. (NV83A2) You need to hold the trigger down and then as you place the nailer to the wood the safety will depress and it will fire once. This is usually done in one, swift action. If you do this in the opposite way by placing the tool to the wood and then pulling the trigger they often will double fire.

Nailer will shoot a nail, but will not foward the next nail. Gun is new maybe 15 lbs of nails or so.


If the nail will not advance, easy test will determine problem. Open door and remove the nails. Lightly tap the nose of the gun against coiled rubber hose or soft wood with door open. If the driver falls to bottom, the piston oring needs to be replaced. The driver should stay at top of cylinder. Next pull back the feeder to rear position and check for tension. The feeder should spring back towards you when you push. Finally, the check paws on the door should return to extended positon when you push on them. Replace springs as needed. Connect air to gun and rapidly bump fire the gun against rubber. The feeder should move back and forward just as quickly as the driver moves. Good luck

Gun will not shoot nails completely;no matter what wood,thickness,etc.they drive all but 1/2"


May be due to broken tip. Easy to check. Remove nails and leave door open. With door open, lightly tap the nose of the gun against coiled rubber hose or soft wood. The driver should stay at top position. If driver falls to bottom of the cylinder, replace piston oring. Now press nose of the gun against old coiled up air hose or soft wood and squeeze and hold trigger. The gun will fire and the driver should stay in the down position untill you release the trigger (if not single fire trigger, if single fire trigger remove trigger and press the trigger pin with finger). While the driver is down, make sure that the tip extends past the nose about 1/4 inch (if air leaks past the nose in this position, replace lower bumper). If the driver does not extend past the nose, replace driver. Good luck

I have an Hitachi NV83A2 it won't feed nails anymore. Everything else seems to work properly. After about 20 or so hits on the trigger it will feed the odd nail? I am puzzled as to which course of...


could be a couple areas to look at. First lok at the coil of nails and possibly try another one. Check the adjustment of the coil for proper feeding. If all ok there, remove the coil and get a block of wood and safety glasses. Open the door and "TAP" the nose on the block of wood and look at the driver does it fall down into the lower area without the trigger, if so the piston o ring is worn not allowing it to fully retract and advance the next nail. If not apply air and DRY fire the nailer while looking at the feed piston/pawl, it should snap back and forth, if not there is either a worn oring or debris in the air passage. Also the pawl should have resistance if you push outwards on it. Sounds like a lot but only takes a couple minutes to see where issue is. Let me know if I can help

How to adjust double shot for Hitachi nail gun


The condition of the driver oring is an indication of wear of all the other orings in the gun. Remove the nails and lightly tap the nose against piece of wood. If the driver drops to bottom of cylinder the oring is worn out and time for oring kit. Hitachi nailers are sensitive and will double fire if placing the foot against work then depressing trigger. Adjust the depth thumb screw several turns either direction then depress trigger and quickly bump gun against work. Good luck with your repair.

My Senco SFN1 finish nailer will not shoot a nail. When the trigger is pulled air comes out but no nail is shot. Thanks,Steve L


Not sure about Senco but most have latch you can open to expose firing mechanism. Nail sometimes gets jammed and will not allow driver to fire or if not nail push driver ****** all the way back into gun then see if gun will fire.

Paslode nail guns won't shoot


piston is probably jammed

This happens sometimes try holding it up against a board with the trigger depressed and then inset the battery.

The goal is to try to force the firing sequence to get the piston back to the right position with corded units this is simply done by attaching the air hose with the trigger pulled this causes air to rush into the gun chamber pushing the piston back and firing a nail out.

The cause of this is a misfire or jammed nail that stopped the piston in the wrong location so air will not build in the chamber correctly.

Hope that helps

Hitachi 83a2 (s) framing nailer jamed, there are 2 nails in cylinder, not sure how to clear the chamber. .


1.Remove the air hose
2.Hold the nose down on a 2x4 on the ground. Make sure the safety guide is full depressed.
3.Squeeze the trigger.

(I realize that sounds redundant, but I have to insure your safety as much as possible. We at FixYa want you to be safe. A Framer Nailer can be dangerous if safety precautions aren't observed)

4.Pull the slide back, and grab around it with your hand, up against the back of the gun. (Magazine)
If you accidentally bump the latch lever, the slide won't spring forward, possibly causing you injury by using this method.

5.Remove any nails. Pull the plastic strip of nails out.

6.The method I use here is to rest the air chamber cover on a table. (Top of the gun) Nose AWAY from your face. I use a small flat tip screwdriver, and see if I can move the Driver back up into the gun. Then see if I can ease one nail out at a time, by moving the nail down out of the nose.

You have two nails trying to drive out at the same time. They need to be separated from each other, so that you can get one nail out at a time.

Most of the time this occurs because of lack of lube. The gun is supposed to have 4 to 5 drops of pneumatic oil, added to the air hose inlet before starting the day out.

(Gun is faced so that the air inlet connection is straight up, oil is added, while the trigger is being squeezed in at the same time)

I don't rely on oilers in the air line. I think they're a bunch of hooey. I've had very few problems, when I have added oil manually at the start of the day.

Sometimes using those 'bargain' nails will cause a problem also. If you find a brand of nails that are cheap, this is the usual result.

Sometimes we framers are too fast on the trigger, and do not have the safety guide fully depressed, before firing the next 'shot'.

If you have further questions please post them.
