This is a discontinued tool by Senco but there are still parts available for it. It sound to me that the o rings and possibly the firing valve need to be replaced. I would recommend going to Senco.com and you will find a complete parts diagram in their discontinued tool section. They also have a toll free number if needed and you can talk to their air pro. I have rebuilt quite a few of these and they are not that hard just make sure to clean all the parts and use lube when replacing O rings.

I am using senco gas in a paslode 2nd fixing nail gun. Is the senco gas 'bad for' my gun in any way as i am having a few firing problems


You can use most gases in your gun, but paslode is the best that's why its more expensive. Try warming the gases in your pocket that sometimes helps.

Why does my Senco SN 901 XP frame nailers driver stay forward?


not sure what powers the senco if it works on combustion or air could be damage O rings. Another possibility is a trapped nail under the blade. Have seen where a nail has not been driven out of the magazine but has bent and points down the magazine close to end of gun. What happens is the blade drives over the nail but becomes trapped between nail and roof of the nose assy. Probably need to strip the gun a little.

Senco fram pro 602 nail gun firers but no nail just a hole from firing pin


First, check that you are using the proper nails. The FP602 needs Full Round Head nails with plastic collation. If you are using Clipped Head nails with the paper tape collation the angle of the nails not let the driver catch the next nail and drive it into your work.
If you have the correct nails, check the magazine to make sure the nails are feeding all the way up to the driver. If there is anything blocking the way or if the spring on the feeder isn't taught enough to pull the clip all the way up the driver won't be able to catch the next nail and drive it in.

My Senco SFN1 finish nailer will not shoot a nail. When the trigger is pulled air comes out but no nail is shot. Thanks,Steve L


Not sure about Senco but most have latch you can open to expose firing mechanism. Nail sometimes gets jammed and will not allow driver to fire or if not nail push driver ****** all the way back into gun then see if gun will fire.

I just rebuilt my Senco SN4 nail gun because it leaked air.


I think that you are referring to the firing valve and no it should not be split. I suggest going to Senco.com and typing in your model number fora breakdown for this tool. They offer different kits for various failures. Let me know if you need more help

Senco framepro 502 repeatedly fails to advance 8d 2 3/8 nails. Nail heads seem to hang up on the driver. Had it for about a year and ran about 7000 nails mostly 16d with some misfires. Is there any...


There is not an adjustment for this. You can buy an o-ring kit for this gun that comes with instructions and is easy to install. When the O-rings get worn or to much dirt and grit build up inside the piston and driver will not return all the way up after firing.
