Question about Senco FP18 FinishPro 18 - Gauge Brad Nailer, 5/8" - 2"

1 Answer

My senco finishpro 18 won't shoot

I've adjusted the pressure on the compressor up & down, have raised & lowered the pin. There are no other visible means of adjusting the tool. When I depressed pin against wood & pull the trigger, air is released. I've tried & tried again. Occassionally it'll fire a few at startup, but that's it. I've had the gun since 2003 & have trimmed 2 houses w/it and built a few small projects. It gets a few drops of oil each time I use it (per mnfr recommendation). Any clues?

    You're right...I'd taken it to the local repair/fastener shop the day before receiving this email & an o ring replacement kit ws just the ticket. Thanks.

    Bet I haven't fired more than a dozen clips. Press the trigger and the air will fire but no nail...talk about annoying.

Senco 35 finishpro not punching nail all the way in


IF you have tried adjusting out the problem without joy, remove head and push piston down into cylinder till it hits lower bumper. If the driver extends past nose about 1/4 inch then you should be able to adjust to desired position. If the end is broken off then tip may not extend past nose or just slightly. Replace driver as needed or adjust safety/repair foot (look for bent safety). Good luck

Looking for a diagram or schematic for a senco fp18


I have a SENCO FinishPro18 that I inherited from my son when he died a year ago. It has worked fine till now. It does not shoot a nail when depressed against a board and I pull the trigger. I don't hear air leaking, but it seems there is little pressure. Having taken apart the head, then the base, it all seems in good shape. I have not taken apart the trigger assembly, as the removal is a total commitment. Thoughts? I could use some help.

Senco Finishpro18 just stopped shooting nails. Took it apart put it together. Shoots a couple of nails then stops. Press the nailer against the target pull the trigger and air comes out of the handle.


I just had the same problem with mine. Exact same symptoms. My guess is that your gun hasn't been used in a while.

I called Senco and they recommended removing the top cap, removing all o-rings (one at a time) gently stretch them, put a small amount of lithium grease in the o-ring track, and replace the o-rings. This fixed my problem and I hope it fixes yours!

Senco has awesome tech support for their tools. I will not buy another brand because of their support. 800-543-4506

Do you regularly use air-tool oil placed in the air connection? If it gets a good workout every day, buy an 'inline' oiler that is inserted into the air line which automatically takes care of oiling. Hope this helps!

Gun will not drive pins flush with wood. Wood is


What is your air pressure setting. A finish nailer such as this usually requires 70 lbs to drive flush. Adjust air to this value and test fire in scrap. Keep adjusting air presure until nail drives flush.
