Question about Porter Cable 16 - Gauge Finish Brad Nailer Kit

1 Answer

Porter/Cable 15 gauge angle finish nailer

This air nailer works about 20% of the time.When i pull the trigger,air escapes out of the trigger area.So,I bought a overhaul kit and replaced all the seals,including the trigger assembly.Did just what the instructions said,put it back together,and the problem is still the same.I double checked it 3 times,no luck! And i did put oil in it.Cant somebody tell what to trouble shoot for?????I am stumped!!

The driver assembly can sometimes get bent or the tip can get a little deformed causing it to hang up in the nose. Other than that, not much else it could be if you rebuilt the whole thing

Porter Cable FN250c wont shoot with every trigger pull. sometimes it shoots correctly (10% of the time), other times it just pops (no nail) and other times it shoots two nails at once. Also when it...


Worn trigger and or worn firing valve. Remove the trigger and look for wear on contact surfaces (worn pin that holds trigger, worn inner lever inside trigger, worn or loose firing pin in valve ). Easy test for worn trigger. Remove the nails, remove trigger, fire the gun against wood with finger to test for proper action. If it works better without trigger, consider replacing trigger with new (I would also order the oring repair kit that includes the firing valve )
