    DC618 Tip depresses against wood, lights come on, motor runs, nothing happens when trigger is pulled. Note: have had unit for two years, but this is first time trying to use it - basically brand new - has never fired.

    also you can flip the safety switch on the side which will

    stop it from firing as well

Problem solved.whoever had used the tool must have hit something hard because the drive pin had been pushed back just enough to stop it from cycling.

Its probably jammed. i have one of those and it tends to jam everyonce in a while. either that or the battery is dead. those two reasons will keep it from firing.

I have a dewalt dc618 finish nailer When I go to shoot the lights on the gun start to flash and will not shoot ?


Continuous flashing indicates low battery charge or poor battery connection. If lights flash 4 or 5 times indicates possible control module fault.

How does the framing nailer work with a black button grey button


Dewalt has two triggers available for their framing nailer. The black trigger (390746-00) is a bump style trigger. While holding the trigger, you will be able to fire a nail by pressing nose against work. This trigger is preferred by most framers because it is much faster. Gray trigger will only allow one nail to be fired. Bumping will not work with the gray trigger. With trigger released, you must place the nose against work then pull trigger to fire. To fire next round, you must release trigger, pull gun off the work, again place nose against work then press trigger. Check dewalt web site for recall information. Some dewalt framers have been recalled for faulty trigger. Good luck with your projects.

After shooting a nail, it fires out two more nails. It's a Dewalt d51822.


There is a replacement trigger valve available from Dewalt. The new part number is 5140095-73 (the old part number was 641006-00 ). I am not sure however if the new part is just a natural upgrade or if it was changed to address an issue. I have seen these guns double fire and fire once when air is connected. I would change trigger valve and four orings that make contact with the bulkhead (part # 395215-00). These orings are in the repair kit available from Dewalt (kit does not include the trigger valve). Use caution for now, do not load nails until you are ready to nail; then pull out nails from rails when done . Good luck

Gun will not shoot nails completely;no matter what wood,thickness,etc.they drive all but 1/2"


May be due to broken tip. Easy to check. Remove nails and leave door open. With door open, lightly tap the nose of the gun against coiled rubber hose or soft wood. The driver should stay at top position. If driver falls to bottom of the cylinder, replace piston oring. Now press nose of the gun against old coiled up air hose or soft wood and squeeze and hold trigger. The gun will fire and the driver should stay in the down position untill you release the trigger (if not single fire trigger, if single fire trigger remove trigger and press the trigger pin with finger). While the driver is down, make sure that the tip extends past the nose about 1/4 inch (if air leaks past the nose in this position, replace lower bumper). If the driver does not extend past the nose, replace driver. Good luck

My DC618 nailer won't fire .


Check the battey then take it out and check the driving rod. On the front of the gun, flip the latch and make sure it is pushed all the way back.
make sure you have nail, of course. put the battery back in. If al that does not work, have it services at a dewalt service center.
