Question about Air Tools & Compressors
I JUST STARTED A DECK PROJECT AFTER NOT USING MY NAILER FOR A FEW MONTHS. IT STARTED LEAKING AIR THROUGH THE TRIGGER AREA AND DI NOT FUNCTION. THE LAST TIME I USED IT - IT FUNCTIONED WELL. HOW DO I FIX IT AND WHERE DO I GET THE PARTS. THANKS, ED
Please do not rate this until we've finished our dialog. Okay?
Do you see an oil port or small hole in and around the trigger?
The trigger that you use to actuate the gun operates a plunger diverting air from a the storage chamber into the barrel. This plunger usually has a least one and usually two o-rings. If there is an oil port or small hole on the body above the trigger and either forward or to the rear of the trigger, this may lubricate the plunger enough to revitalize the o-rings and create air from the storage chamber escaping at the trigger.
O-rings do shrink in a drier climate should you be in one. They also shrink over time. Lastly, you may have one with a tear in it and this could also cause the leak.
As I seem to recall Bostitch is one of those companies that encourages their equipment be returned to a factory service center. And air guns being somewhat dangerous this would normally be the case.
Can you supply the model version and perhaps I can also provide you with a parts explosion that will show you the elements to access should you desire to undertake the replacement of the o-rings yourself.
