Sounds like safety needs adjusted you have bent the arm and it is thinking that the guard is not fully depressed and thus it vents air . adjust it with wrench or straighten arm. I have had this happen before- but in my case the adjuster backed off- same result -look in manual for adjusting as well - should be there or take to service -easy fix and should be cheap

My senco sfn1 finish nail gun is leaking air


The SFN1 is a great nailgun, built for professionals, and is pretty much indestructible. It's air leak is most likely an O ring that is worn out. While it is theoretically possible to figure out which one it is, and replace it, the smart move is to have the gun rebuilt by an approved service tech. I usually pay about $60 to have my SFNs gone through. My oldest SFN1 is 18 years old, and it has only been rebuilt once.

My bostitch bt1855 nail gun worked fine, until it started to dry fire 2inch nails. No problem with firing quarter inch nails. Any ideas?


Have you serviced it recently? and is the gas in date? The pistons do dry out and have to be oiled with special oil.

I have a N59 FN air is leaking from the bottom of gun I put ne trigger and O rings still leaking now what.


Air leaking from the bottom of the gun (path of driver) indicates that cylinder seal orings are leaking (if without nails in gun the driver is slowly pushed down the cylinder when air is connected then cylinder seal is leaking ). Cylinder seal snaps on the top of the cylinder and should fit snug and have no cracks. Easy fix for cylinder ring. Remove head and pull out cylinder. Then remove the cylinder ring (part #n50015). Examine ring for cracks and replace as needed. Examine body of gun where spacer oring makes contact and sand fine scratches. Replace orings as needed. If air is leaking between body of the gun and nose casting, replace gaskets. Good luck.

AIR BLOWING OUT OF EXHAUST PORT DO NOT NAIL AT ALL


you have a problem with a split o ring or a seal that has gone bad. I would suggest buying a rebuild kit and redoing all the internal parts. It is not that hard to do and I would suggest taking some pics along the disassembly to make it easier when rebuilding. Let me know if you need more help.

My older style Hitachi NR90AD still works OK but always leaks a little air out of the very top of gun. I took the head off, cleaned, and oiled but still leaks by.


Over time debris enters the gun and scratches the metal and plastic surfaces where orings seal against. These scratches will allow air to leak past. Remove the head and pull out the head valve. Examine the metal surface with magnify glass where the headvalve oring makes contact. Remove scratches with 400 grit paper. The surface must be smooth and the oring must seal snugly. Apply silicone paste lube on all surfaces and orings (available at Lowes in the plumbing department and swimming pool supply). Also check for scratches around the body of the gun were the cylinder plate is installed around the cylinder. The gun will not work properly will small air leaks. Remove nails and listen for leaks thru the nose of the gun. Repair as needed. Good luck with your gun.

I have the 2 1/2 Hitachi for nailing siding. The nail gun had not been used for a couple of years, but now will only drive the nail half way in. Sounds like an air leak when driving the nail. I have...


Remove the nails and air supply. With side door open notice position of driver. Driver should be at top position with tip not visible. If driver is down and it moves within cylinder when you tilt nose up then down again, time to replace orings. If driver is down, it should extend past the nose about 1/4 inch (if driver is broken at the tip the end will look rough and nail will not drive in all the way). If driver extends past the nose more than 1/4 inch then lower bumper may be breaking up /cracked. Easy test for proper function. With nails removed and side door open, connect air to gun and dry fire gun against hard rubber or old coiled air-hose (with air connected and trigger depressed, no air should leak from trigger area, if air leaks when trigger is depressed, look for fault at trigger pin). Feeder should move back then forward in quick motion almost matching speed of driver and driver should not creep down between shots. No air should leak from nose of the gun (push nose against hard rubber and depress trigger and hold in this position, driver should stay down with very little or no air leaking out of nose, when you release trigger, driver will return). If air leaks out of nose while holding in this position, replace lower bumper. If a quantity of air leaks from valve in front of trigger, cylinder orings may need replacing or outer part of cylinder has fine scratches (remove scratches with 400 grit paper). Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com. Good lucki

Air leaks arond trigger when depressed, but no nail fires.


Where does the air leak out from? If it leaks from the trigger DeWalt makes a trigger valve assembly part # 641006-00 list 8.89 BUT if it leaks from other areas we have to look into it deeper. If it is just the trigger valve let me know and I will give you instructions how to remove and install the new one.

Gun failure


bertobryan45

Have you been lubricating it regularly with nail gun oil. We use framing nailers every day at the commercial tree farm I work at and one of the operating instruction is to put 6 to 8 drops of oil in the air hose connection on the nailer before every use. I suspect the O ring on the piston is worn out/

Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS Please leave a rating if appropriate Thks
