Question about Arrow ET200 Electric Brad Nail Gun

Arrow ET200 Electric Nail Gun

We are working on a very small project, putting bead board on a kitchen island. I have exchanged three Arrow ET200 Nail Guns  during the last three days.
If works for the first 15- 20 nails, then stops. It doesn't have any pressure left to shoot the nail. I think Home Depot must wonder what we are doing, but they have been more than willing to exchange it out. I just wonder if we are doing something wrong.

    we are working on putting trim around the kitchen and as the other person stated this one worked fine for the first 15 to 20 nails and then just stopped working - I would pull the trigger and just get the popping noise and no nail would fire - and there were still nails left in the gun.

This problem is solved when plugged directly into an outlet. An extension cord decreases the power. Try using a power strip for needs longer than the power cord.

I dont think so as there is not much to opperating a nail gun.
1. Make sure you have the right nails/staples for that model tool(check with your local trade store).
2. Put nail/staples in tool(check with instructions for fitting nails/staples into tool).
3. Plug tool into power.
4. Put nose of tool on timber surface and depress safety down and pull trigger.

If the same thing happens. Then take tool back to store and get a refund and buy another band.
It maybe a factory fault. good luck.......!

I took my arrow ET200 nail master apart to remove jammed nails. I need a diagram on how to put it back together

Susan Sylvia is exactly right. I just fixed my tool with her information. I would add to be very careful not to disturb the 2 small springs(associated with the trigger and safety mechanisms) and take note of how they are positioned. Also, the screws seem to strip unusually easily so be gentle when removing and replacing them.

Wher can I purchase a replacement circut board for an Arrow ET200 Eletric Nail Gun. What I have is an ET200 - 110v Rev.2 I would like to purchase on line.

Do you still need this? I have a good board from my ET200. I dropped it, and the piece that keeps the nail driver steady when it shoots in & out broke off. However, the gun still functions fine. Let me know.

It won't work nailng at a 45 degree angle

Sounds like there isn't enough air getting into the gun. If you can put more pressure into your air tank, try that. Hope this helps

Arrow ET200 nail gun only put nails in 1/8 of inch.

This electric nail gun does not have much power. Try shorter nails and softer wood. You need a pneumatic nail or staple gun for medium or heavy work. I have both a nailer and stapler and neither are very good.

Nail Guns costs

A good-quality starter set, including both a compressor and a small nail gun, can be bought for around 200 US dollars (USD). More sophisticated models can reach 1000 USD or more. Optional features such as a hard-shell case, safety trigger, and depth adjustment can drive the price even higher. For one-time jobs, a nail gun can also be rented at hardware stores and home repair centers.
