Hi. Get an aerosol can of a penetrating lubricant called WD-40. Apply a few squirts to the action end of the nailer. let it sit for a couple of hours and then try it again. Repeat if necessary. J.

How do I remove a jammed nail in the SHF50?


Hi Al:
Usually nailers are built so that removing jammed nails is an anticipated activity.
WORK SAFE!!!
make sure the air supply is disconnected from the nailer.
Press the safety against a piece of wood and pull the trigger. Nothing should happen but it's just one of my safety phobias.
Now you can have a really close look at the nailer mechanism.
Remove any nails that are still in the magazine.
Some nail guns have a cam or tab that will release the face of the nailing assembly.
Others have a plate secured with cap screws or little bolts. There is often an allen wrench provided with the gun just for the purpose of taking the plate off so that you can remove the jammed nails.
If all else fails, you could check with the place you rented or bought it from.
Patience, curiosity, and safety. Keeping tools working is an adventure!

Freeman PFN1564 shoots air when you disengage safety and pull trigger


if you mean it only shoots air when you pull trigger and not a nail , disconect from air supply and open side of nail mag. (two screws on side) look for forign object in front towards head end , sometimes the paper that nails are wrapped in gets stuck in there , also there is a small spring metal clip at front of mag is this broken off and is unusually short ?

I put a new o ring rebuild kit in my Bostitch N80 sb framing nailer. I replaced every o-ring (including the trigger valve assembly


If the new trigger valve leaks air when you connect the air supply, most likely defective valve or air is leaking past outer trigger valve orings due to debris in the slot or new orings were cut when the valve was pushed in. If air leaks when you depress safety to fire gun then most likely problem is in the head valve or safety foot is not pushing the firing pin all the way in. Easy test, remove nails and remove the trigger to expose the firing pin. Connect air and very quickly depress the firing pin all the way in. If the gun fires, adjust the safety foot as needed. If the gun does not fire, remove the head and check headvalve orings for good snug fit against the cylinder within the head. The surface were orings make contact must be very smooth and not too deeply worn. If you notice fine scratches remove with fine sandpaper. Reinstall head using plenty of white grease on all the orings within the head and retest. Good luck

My frame pro 601 will sometimes shoot one to five times and then when you pull the triger nothing happens air comes out the core valve hole above the trigger when pulled then you can unplug air and tap on...


Senco makes a kit for your nail gun, part number YK0360. If you have any o-rings giving you problems, it's always best to replace all of them. You can get them from online parts stores like eReplacementparts.com or possibly from rental or repair places near you. Make sure you lubricate all the o-rings well when putting the new ones in.

Piston drives down when hooked up to air...piston does not return up. is this a problem with the triger valve? I am not pulling the triger, just hooking up the air. This gun hasnt been used in 10 years,...


Sounds like the head valve is stuck in the head. Take black head off and see if the valve is spring loaded by pushing down and see if it comes up. This is the usual problem.
