Question about Air Tools & Compressors
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
