I had the same issue with an older craftsman 351-18309 brad nailer and crown stapler. When I pulled off the top of the piston, there was a denigrated o-ring. I took an ear bud for my Bluetooth headset, cut it to size and stretched it to prevent it from holding the spring... And I'll be damned it worked! It both tools!!

Generally, if your nailer is not leaking air, the orings are probably ok. Remove the head and check for stuck headvalve or stuck driver/piston. Make sure that you can press the headvalve into the head with your thumb and that it returns. If your driver/piston is down when you pull the head, remove the cylinder and check for damage to it or the bumper. Some cylinders have an oring or strip of rubber about med section which acts as a check valve causing the piston to return to top. Check for bent driver or broken tip causing driver to jamb. Use silicone lube to assemble. Enjoy

I have a bostitch n62fn finish nailer that wont fire. when i pull the trigger, air comes out of the trigger assymbly. the gun is not jammed, and is receiving correct air pressure.


this may sound stupid but are you pushing it against the wood when pulling the trigger. it has a safety switch on the front so it will not work just by pulling the trigger.

Craftsman evolv braid nailer leaks air around the trigger when i try to nail. it does not nail sears no. 00915206000 mfg no. 42081 (for kit) on gun model:6G28/F50


Air leaking from trigger when trying to nail indicates that the headvalve is stuck or headvalve orings are dry and allowing air to pass. Remove the head and pull out the headvalve piston. Examine orings for cuts or broken (replace as needed if orings worn and cannot make seal). If headvalve was stuck/dry, lube with plenty of silicone paste lube (sold at Lowes in the plumbing dept. ). Should be good to go. Good luck

Air blows thru the trigger on both my finish nailer and staple gu


there is an o ring in the trigger valve referred to as a Purple o ring that is probably split. If you can find a air tool center that has them you will save a lot of money versus replacing the trigger valve. Let me know what you are going to do and I will help you with the removal of the valve.

Air bypassing when the trigger is pulled, nail gun will not fire


You will need to get a repair kit for that model and brand nailer. It has a leek in the diaphragm or a bad O-ring.

Pulling the trigger, air is released but nailer is not engaged


Try putting a few drops of light machine oil in the air inlet fitting. If this solves the problem, install an inline air lubricator.

The nailer shoots a nail when the trigger on the handle is pulled irreguardless of the hammer being used to strike the head


I found a broken retainer ring in the head of the nailer. It had the striker head jammed in the down position so when you pulled the trigger to arm the head with air pressure, the flooring nailer shot a nail.
Thanks ..
