    sounds like either the motor or the pump may be at fault

    is the unit belt driven?If so remove the belt and by simly turning the pulleys will tell you witch is at fault ,otherwise you will have to take the motor of the pump on a direct drive unit to find wich one is at fault .please contact me again once you know and hopefully i may be of further assistance

    best of luck ian

Your pressue builds up and stays trapped in head which causes the motor to lock up. Your pressure switch is probably bad.

I have a Porter Cable brad nailer BN125A, at 125 PSI and depth adjustement turned to the deepest drive setting, the brad does not set flush with the surface. Problem?


A brad nailer in good working order, set to the deepest setting and using 125psi should almost shoot the brad through the wood. If you have been oiling the gun properly (three to four drops at he beginning of your work session and again in the afternoon if under constant use) then you probably have some worn o-rings inside the gun. Porter Cable makes a driver maintenance kit (PN1001 60062) for your gun that will make it work like new.

I have a poter cable brad nailer and after running


Sounds like a trigger seal. I assume this is an oil-less brad nailer as that is the standard. You should be able to find the seals at any local hardware store including Home Depot or Lowes. If you can't find the portercable O-rings just grab the random assortment from Bostitch which is usually readily available. Refer to your parts manual for the correct size/gauge

PC nail gun does not work all the time. nails do


You have to oil the nailer with pneumatic oil, or you're using the wrong size nail

Brad nailer not firing nail...can hear brief air noise upon pulling the trigger


Porter cable makes a number of brad nailers (18 gauge) that very quickly suffer from the problem that you are having. You did not mention the model number of your gun but if it is one of these, (bn125a, bn200a, ns100a) kit # 60061 will fix the problem. It costs between 25 and 30 dollars. Google that part number or order from www.dewalt.com. Dewalt owns the porter cable brand. Before you order the kit, check that the driver blade is not bent and stuck. The driver should travel freely down the cylinder. When you install parts, use Danco silicone grease to lube (availabel at Lowes in the plumbing department) If your model # is different from those mentioned above, please email me and I will recommend a repair.
