Okay you could have a couple problems there are power bands that retract the driver. They are under the front cover. Also the is a part called a profile and driver that actually drives the driver and pushing the nail into the wood. I had one that seemed to work OK but wouldn't drive completely as you describe and I had to replace the profile and driver. If you are uncomfortable with this type of repair I would suggest taking it to a DeWalt store and having them fix it. They have a max repair rate and will replace everything that is wrong including batterys if need be for one price. But before you attempt any repairs I would go to the DeWalt website and get a copy of the breakdown first. Good luck and let me know.

Why wont my hatachi nail gun shoot 1 3/16 nail all the time


Has the tool been lubricated properly to Hitachi's recommendation? Is the airline pressure running about 90-100 psi? If not try giving it more pressure. Sometimes the compressor may have too smaller receiver (Tank) for what you are trying to use it for, leaving the tool unable to return the piston/driver to top dead centre.

My RN175 shoots you think it shot the nail, but when you move the gun to shoot the next nail the nail you just shot falls out the end of the gun. What could cause this?


The driver is coming down far enough to break the nail off the strip but not far enough to drive it in. This could be caused by any of the following:
- The driver is broken off and too short to drive the nail
- The driver is bent and doesn't travel all the way down
- The seal/o-ring on the piston is damaged and air is leaking past it
Any of the above will require you to remove the head and inspect the driver, piston and o-rings or have a service center check it out.

Senco 601 nailer shoots 2 nails each time the trigger is pulled.


the 601 had a design flaw, in the nose, where the nails hit as the are being pushed forward, the peice was made out of a peice of metal that was too soft, it wore down and that is where you get the double nail problem.

Senco offered a trade in, this was years ago, for a limited time and gave us credit towards new guns, which we gladly did

Mastercraft Brad nailer piston always fires damaging finish but nail gets randomly shot. Thought it was a indent before nail shot to indent nail since it mostley shoots nails after second shot but lately...


The dial on the top of the gun is most likely the depth adjustment for the nails, this should solve the driver damaging the work piece. Make sure the nails are the correct guage for the nailer you have.
