My cordless Dewalt finishing gun has stopped firing when you try to fire it in a vertical position. Works fine on skirting and architrave but just gives a little 'pop' if try to fix anything to ceiling.


is this a gas cartridge type of nailer? It could be the effects of gravity on the spray nozzle. try pushing down in normal position but dont fire it. quickly move to ceiling then try firing. I am not a fan of this type of nailer as they are problematic and finicky.

Time for oring kit # d518005 available at Dewalt service center or at www.toolpartsdirect.com.
May as well order the replacement trigger valve while there. These two items will renew your gun. Good luck

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

When battery gets plugged in lights come on but nailer wont fire


Does the motor run but does not fire a nail? If this is the case chances are the belt came off the flywheel. This is one of the most common problems when these will not fire.
If the headlights go on but the motor does not run it could be a bad switch or contact trip.

This a PDF of the owners manual, Page 9 had some trouble shooting tips. http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/documents/English/Instruction%20Manual/644429-00,DC612.pdf

From www,dewaltservicenet.com you can get the contact info for you local Factory Service Center if needed.
For safety remember to always remove the battery when performing any service to this tool.

The gun won't put out any nails anymore......It is a cordless bradnailer..


If it is the cordless Brad Nailer and will not fire nails anymore chances are the drive belt came off track. Internally those DeWalt cordless nailers operate much like a Baseball pitching machine. And when you fire a nail the drive belt pinches the driver blade which fires the nail. Here is the product documentation from DeWalt's website. http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/Products/DocumentView.aspx?productid=68728&typeId=16768&documentId=35981
The Drive belt is part #59. I have never opened one of these before so I can not tell you if it is a simple fix, I would open it up and peek around just a few screws on the top should open it. If you do not feel comfortable opening that unit yourself, I would take it to an Authorized DeWalt repair facility.

Dewalt 51488. Air leaks around trigger and won't fire nail.


Go to Dewaltservicenet.com and download a breakdown of the tool before starting. I would recoment changing all the O rings and make sure that you get a good grease to lube them first. Its not that hard.

Once trigger is depressed, air leaks and no nail is fired....


Sounds like the trigger o-ring is damaged, either because of not being oiled frequently, or the pneumatic tool has not been used for a while. O-rings will harden up if not used. Look for a place that sells fasteners, or nails and see if they can put a new o-ring in the trigger asm. for you. If you take the gun to a place where you purchase your nails, they should repair for little or no cost. it is an easy repair if you have the tools, parts, etc.
