All air ratchets have an exhaust. Air in must go somewhere and it will go out the exhaust. Some exit beside the air inlet & some have the air exit out the side of the handle. If the air is not coming out of a defined air orifice, then you may have a worn out gasket where the handle meets the head or you may have a cracked handle. The handle unscrews but you must hold the head in a vise while you use a wrench or adjustable wrench to grip the end of the handle to unscrew it for inspecting the internals.

My hitachi roofing gun leaks air from trigger when not pressed


Two areas to check when air leaks from around the trigger. Rubber ball under trigger pin will cause air to leak, however when good side of the ball falls on the seat, air will not leak for a while. If air is leaking from plunger pin (just in fromt of the trigger pin), remove the head and pull out the cylinder plate to reveal broken oring (oring part # 876161). Good luck with your repair project.

My craftsman fullhead nailer shoots but the driver does not retract until I release pressure


Assuming no air leaks when airline is connected. This condition is caused by either restriction within the headvalve /upper bumper and or trigger valve worn/dirty. Easy fix however. Remove the head and pull the headvalve. Examine the upper bumper for cracks/splitting. Replace parts as needed. Lube with silicone paste lube and retest. If condition remains replace the trigger valve. Good luck

Craftsman evolv braid nailer leaks air around the trigger when i try to nail. it does not nail sears no. 00915206000 mfg no. 42081 (for kit) on gun model:6G28/F50


Air leaking from trigger when trying to nail indicates that the headvalve is stuck or headvalve orings are dry and allowing air to pass. Remove the head and pull out the headvalve piston. Examine orings for cuts or broken (replace as needed if orings worn and cannot make seal). If headvalve was stuck/dry, lube with plenty of silicone paste lube (sold at Lowes in the plumbing dept. ). Should be good to go. Good luck

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

GUN DOES NOT FIRE FOR SEVERAL ATTEMPTS--even though gun is pressed firm against work---just had unit serviced and trigger valve replaced-----any suggestions? thanks joel


Remove nails and remove trigger to expose trigger valve pin. Place nose of gun against rubber pad or old coiled up air hose to absorb impact of driver and with very quick and deliberate motion press in trigger pin. If gun fires, then problem is with safety foot not pushing trigger pin all the way in (or worn trigger). Make adjustment as needed or replace faulty parts. If gun still does not fire, then likely problem is with headvalve. If headvalve orings are leaking, gun will not fire. Test for leaking orings as follows. Remove head and remove headvalve, apply silicone paste lube (plenty) to all orings and where orings contact. Assemble and do test above. If gun fires then surface where orings contact is allowing air to leak(smooth with very fine sandpaper if scratched).

first I hope that you drain the water out of the tank regularly. It seems as though you might have an air hose collapsing but in any case there is something apparently restricting air flow too the gun. try opening the petcock and see if you have steady air discharge or not and if you have another air hose try it. Also, are coming directly off the compressor to the tool or do you have an oiler or drier in line? if so, eliminate the accessory. Let me know how you do....I'm curious.
