    The item is a Craftsman 16 guage 1/4 to 2 1/2 Finish Nailer. I am using the nails that came with the set. Karen

Dewalt 16 guage 18 volt finish nailer will not shoot nails


1) Check to see if the drive belt is intact
2) Check and make sure the driver blade is not bent
3) Make sure return device is properly clipped down so the driver can fully retract
If you don't have success, please let me know more details of what the tool is doing and I will try to talk you through it.

My brand new DC608 18 gauge nailer jams every time on the 2nd nail.


Per your addendum I would have first told you to check that you are using the proper guage nails. Second you should make sure you are loading the nails in the lowest channel in the magazine so they are at the bottom of the magazine. If you load them into the top of the magazine they have more time to go off course before they get into the wood.

Shoots one nail ram does not return to position. i can push the ram back up then it will shoot again. it is a craftsman 16 gauge finish nailer.


sometimes the ram breaks off in the center and it's pushed down but has to be pushed up to fire the second time. see if the ram will pull out it should not. be careful unload the gun first.
or the return spring has malfunctioned.

I only shoot one nail and the rest is air. i need to push up the magazine to advance another one. This is my first finish nailer, is there something i'm doing wrong or is it the gun. I just purchased this...


Possibly, I would make sure that you are using the right guage nails first with the proper collation. You can go to Dewaltservicenet.com and download a breakdown for the tool and also a users manual.

Will work fine for one or two nails and then nails jam in the gun or it shoots two or three at once.


This is iffy... but PC nailers are nit picky. If you used someone elses nails, it can (and will) jam and mess up.
So, if Porter Cable nails are being used, clean and lube the nail shoot (with a few drops of air tool oil).

If that does not work, Invest 19 dollars in a new, 18 guage nailer at Harbor Freight. I have 2 of those and they have been trouble free for 3 years.

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.

Bostich gun problem


If the piston/driver is broken, the gun will fire however nailing will not take place because the piston will jam in the cylinder. Sometimes the cylinder will also crack when the driver goes. If the piston is not broken but stays down, then check the cylinder check valve, worn lower bumper, bent driver or cracked cylinder. 18 guage nailer has a very thin driver which will easily bend or break. Parts however are not expensive.
