Nailer leaking air

Hey there,

I have had a Dewalt d51825 frame nailer for a week, worked awesome, set it down working on Friday, went to use it today and it won't fire and bypassses air through the trigger when pushed. Took it apart and checked the o rings, seemed to look okay, any suggestions?
Thanks
Mike

Same situation here with the same model.  Turned out to be lack of pressure coming from the air compressor.  I turned up the pressure a little and things went fine afterwards.

Dewalt won't return piston


If you have proper air pressure and it wont return it needs attention to the O rings. You might try a squirt of 3in1 oil if oil is compatible with this gun.

DeWalt D51822 Framing Nailer: Replaced the trigger valve and air is still coming from the nose of the gun. I would think no air should get past the trigger valve until pressed. What's wrong?


Dewalt framing nailers use some vinyl orings (gold or clear in color) that fail too soon in both the trigger and the cylinder spacer. Air out the nose of gun indicates air is leaking past the cylinder spacer seals (If piston is pushed down with air leak then headvalve seal is leaking (remove nails for this test)). If piston is not pushed down with leak, remove head and pull out the cylinder with cylinder spacer (white plastic). Place the cylinder on workbench with bottom up. Push down on locking ring and remove retainer to release all the other parts. Take picture or take note of parts together and as you pull them off to aid in re-assembly. You will need to replace the two orings between the white cylinder spacer and the cylinder. Order oring kit from dewalt or just purchase one ( # 141 universal oring ) and one metric oring 74.4mm x 3.1mm from hydraulic parts store. If the piston was pushed down with air leak, replace headvalve orings in the head. Good luck with your repair

Dewalt D51850 framing nailer leaks air continuously


You could have broken internal parts but more likely you have broken or worn o-rings inside the nailer. You can go to the Dewalt service site at, http://servicenet.dewalt.com/, search for your model number and get a good breakdown of the nailer and order the parts you need to rebuild it. If you replace any o-rings, replace all of them.

As I try to fire the gun, I just get a small thump of air and no nail fires This gun is 2 years old and worked perfectly when I put it away last spring.


Problem you describe is typical of stuck driver or firing valve. Easy to check; remove head and make sure piston moves down cylinder (upon removing head, piston should be at top). Your gun utilizes sliding cylinder instead of moving valve in head. When you pull the trigger the cylinder moves down allowing air pressure to drive piston down. Orings swell overtime which prevents the cylinder from moving/firing. If cylinder does not move down/up, may be time for rebuild kit. Parts are available at dewalt service center or can be ordered from www.toolpartsdirect.com. Good luck
