Question about Dewalt DC616kn 18 - volt 16 - gauge straight finish nailer
My nailer is about two years old,but does not seem to be firing,the battery is good because the gun loads up but dosnt fire .what could cause this problem
I have both the DC616 and 618 and have used them sucessfully for about three years. Two main things go wrong. There is a drive belt that breaks (drives the spool that give the energy to drive in the nails), second are two small rubber bands on either side of the drive head that break. The bands can be accessed by taking off the front silver cover, the drive belt is access by spliting the case. Make sure you are using the correct nails or the drive pin may become bent and will jamb repeatedly. Hope that helps!

Have you put any oil or wd40 into the gun. i did this just to clean the gun up a bit and ruined. went to get it fixed and they said these machines run on friction so any lubricant is a no no. do not rty and maintain these guns with any lubricants. cost was about $300 to fix so i just got another one.

If there is a nail jambed between the firing pin and nailers that would do it If you've already checked that try oiling it or the firing pin it'self could be broken. Also most (not all) of the battery operated nail guns require an air cartrige to force the firing pin down I don't know about the dewalts because paslode is my brand but it is very small and sometimes it is hard to find.
