SOURCE: won't feed nail

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.

SOURCE: nail would not shoot out

The problem that you describe is caused when the driver is not returning all the way back up to the top of the cylinder not allowing the nails to enter into position . You may have one of several problems including worn piston oring, bent driver, worn check valve, worn lower bumper, or low air pressure. Simple test is to manually push the driver blade back to top using a thin piece of metal that fits into bottom of gun. Be sure to disconnect from air supply when doing this. Good Luck

SOURCE: Leak inside Bostitch N80 Nailer, won't drive nails

If the unit is leaking it most likley need a rebuild kit. Go to a Bostitch service center and ask for an ORK-11 kit. That is all the o-rings needed to do an over haul. Or just have them do it.

SOURCE: DeWalt d51822 framing nailer, shoots 2 nails at once 1 in 5 times

I worked at at tool rental center while attending college and learned from the old tool masters about nails and nailers. Rental stores have many different brands of nailers to rent and customers would bring their own nails of all brands. You will notice on the case/box that your nails will /should work on many other brands however the degree or angle of the nails is not always exacly as stated on the box. You should check with protractor the exact angle of your nails and also check the exact angle of the nailer. Use straight edge on travel path of the piston and another on guide rails to check angle of the gun. You will discover that all is not as stated as in a perfect world. If the angle is off slightly, the head of the second nail will get into the path of the driver. This happens mostly with clip head because the nail heads are so close together. The full round head is spaced further apart with less jamming. If angle is off slightly, take a look at other brands of nails with protractor in hand, the angle will be different slightly or choose a slightly thicker nail. Look for the nails to fit with bottom of nail hitting the barrel first. This will move the head of the nail slightly away from the center line. Finally do not release pusher with force as this will jamb nails closer together. Good Luck!?

SOURCE: my mastercraft electric brad nailer stapler wont

Look for a jam in the gun.Sounds like a brad is "hung up" in it, probably right at point where it feeds into the mouth of the firing point. Be sure you unplug it before you do this.

I have a prime air roofing nailer...it will shoot one nail wont shoot any more til i open an push nails into position


It sounds like the auto feed is jammed. It just might be some dirt holding the slide from advancing or it could be a broken feed spring.

Dewalt D51238 not firing when trigger pulled but air does come out?


Remove the head and lube the headvalve with white grease. If gun still does not fire and makes air noise at the trigger valve then orings within the trigger valve are worn. Replace the trigger valve or if you have a source for small orings, just replace the two orings on the metal stem (2mm x 1.5mm). Dewalt uses vinyl orings on the stem that fail. Replace with buna. Good luck

My roofing nailer just started blowing air and wont shoot any nails


Most often this is a jammed nail or head of a nail jamming the driver. Inspect to see if there is a jam and if you can push the piston back up freely. If there is no jam and the piston moves up and down I would install a service kit - one of the O-rings has failed.
If you let me know the model I can get you the part number you will need.
Good luck

16g wont shoot nails. bottom flat piece comes out


You broke the "hammer" you can open the housing and replace it, fairly simply. You can buy replacement parts at most large scale hardware or tool stores. The task takes about 10 min, and some simple hand tools.

F28 ww framinf nailers. 4 relatively new


It sounds like you are using the wring nails. check the recommended nails and the degree of the strips. there is a large variety of degree's available if it is a Bostitch usually 28* is what your looking for. next the gauge of nails need to match and then whether or not they are paper collated or wire. that will cause problems like that all day. hope this helps

Nailer jams with 1-5/8 brads


It sound to me that the 1 5/8 brads are not 18 guage but probably 16 guage and they will not work. Double check them first before going any further. You can usually lay them next to the smaller ones that work and see the size difference, if not let me know and I will dig deeper.
