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

I have a Bostitch N80S stick framing nailer that leaks air from the trigger area. I replaced the entire trigger valve with a new single fire trigger to see if the old bump fire trigger was the problem


Remove the nails and take off the trigger to expose the trigger valve (usually part # tva6). Connect air and spray soapy water on the valve to determine if the air is leaking from the center of the valve or around the outer edge between the body and valve. If leaking from the center, could be defective valve or debris under oring. Pop out the valve and examine internal parts for cut oring or defect. If leaking from between body, you could have cut orings installing the valve. Make sure that there are no rough edges in the body of the gun. Bump fire or single fire happens with the trigger type not the valve. Bump fire trigger is usually black metal and single fire trigger is light color plastic. Good luck

My nail gun won't fire nails and is blowing It


Stop using it and take it in for service. If it is leaking air then an o-ring or seal may have failed (most likely guess) and it needs to be replaced.

I have a bostich rn46 wont fire a nail just leaks air.put new trigger assembly in


depends on where the air is leaking from, if the top of cap you have a pinched o ring, from the bottom of tool you have a problem with the cylinder or seal, the trigger assembly has a broken o ring. Let me know where the air if coming from and I will try and help.

The gun constantly exhausts air when connected to air compressor. Won't build up the pressure when connected. Must disconnect between firing trigger


Easy fix if air is leaking out the top of gun. Remove the head and lube with white grease or silicone paste. If orings seem to be loose, order repair kit from dewalt (you can tighten orings by removing the oring and wind a bit of teflon tape in the oring groove). If air is leaking from the trigger, replace the valve. If air is leaking out the bottom where the nail ejects, pull out the cylinger and lube the orings that seal the cylinder to the body of the gun.

Most likely a seal is leaking which is preventing complete reset of the tool to the firing position. Follow the instrucitons in the link below to get to a site that will provide a diagram of the gun and the parts list. I would recommend replacing all of the o-rings and a good cleaning and lube.

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

Just replaced o rings and piston bumper, but gun still leaks air (out of nozzle) and wont fire at all


Air leaking thru nozzle (where nail exits ) can be caused by two issues. Air leaking past valve rubber at top of cylinder where headvalve seals when under pressure. If leaking at valve rubber seal the piston will usually be pushed down if there are no nails in gun. If the driver stays up while leaking then problem is at cylinder plate. This plate has two orings that seal air pressure. On seals against the body of gun and the other seals against cylinder. Leaks can occur if body of gun is worn, warped or has scratches where oring makes contact. Also look closely at the plate for crackes. Replace parts as needed. Good luck

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.

Once trigger is depressed, air leaks and no nail is fired....


Sounds like the trigger o-ring is damaged, either because of not being oiled frequently, or the pneumatic tool has not been used for a while. O-rings will harden up if not used. Look for a place that sells fasteners, or nails and see if they can put a new o-ring in the trigger asm. for you. If you take the gun to a place where you purchase your nails, they should repair for little or no cost. it is an easy repair if you have the tools, parts, etc.
