My DiWalt 16 guage cordless nailer will not cycle or turn on when I compress the tip to fire a nail. May have bumped the tip while putting it away. Was working fine and then just stopped. Repair shop say...


I would not try and repair this yourself. They are a nightmare to work on and I have been repairing construction tools for 20 years. The reason they want you to authorize up to $200 is because the GRC on this tool through DeWalt is $199. That means that if you take it to, or send it to a DeWalt service center (actual DeWalt, not just and authorized repair shop) they will fix whatever it needs and the price will not exceed $199 no matter how many parts it needs. Here is a link to the parts diagram if you want to see what they are link.

I have a DC608 cordless nailer that will not fire the driver the driver does not move at all but everything else seems to be functioning properly Thanks Tim


Hi,

You can go to this webpage and download the owner's manual which gives instructions: http://servicenet.dewalt.com/Products/Detail?productNumber=DC608K
You can also download a parts diagram and order parts here.

I looked through the manual and found that DeWalt's Brad Nailer does not require tools to remove jammed nails from the nose piece. I believe this is the problem with your nailer, unless it's empty. Some of these nailers will not fire if there's less than 6 nails in them.
Another feature on this nailer is the trip lock. It is a safety feature that prevents accidental firing. Any time you adjustments made to the nailer will automatically turn the trip lock to lock position. You'll find this lock on the right side, under the Dewalt label.

The instruction manual will explain all this.

Hope this helps. If it does, I would appreciate a vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

The pin on my Dewalt dc616 cordless finish nail gun is ceasing up. How can i lubricate it? can i spray silicon into the nose of the gun?


Hello, W/D here.

The better way is to disconnect the air line from the gun, and place several drops of light oil in the gun while holding the trigger down. Oil daily. Then, re-connect the hose, and fire a few nails into scrap wood.
Another trick is to spray your nails with WD-40 before you load them into the gun.
Best regards, --W/D--

How do i replace the driver blade in a Dewalt DC616 finish nailer?


I believe the manual has a whole section on how to remove it and replace it.

You will probably have to buy a whole driver/return mechanism.

My dc 616 wont fire. the lights are on solid when first put battery in then when you depress nose to fire, it clicks and the lights flash constantly thereafter


The driver is probably stuck. The manual tells you how to access the front of the device. Check there (I have also had several hard to find jams) - be sure to remove all nails first.

The driver is silver in color, so it's easy to see if it's jammed. Use a slotted screwdriver to push it back up. I have had this happen more than a few times.

Dewalt cordless nail gun fires but doesn't seem to feed the nails very well, alot of misfires.


Try another brand of nails -- maybe your gun doesn't like those. Also, blow any dirt out of the nail magazine.
