You have one or more worn o-rings in the head of the gun. They direct the air to the proper parts of the gun to first drive the nail then to return the driver to the top of the gun for the next nail. Depending on the manufacturer and your model number, some companies make kits to replace the o-rings (always replace all of them). For some companies you have to get a breakdown of the gun and order each o-ring seperately.
Could be couple problems. Are you using the right nails for this tool the right guage and degree? Is the nose worn allowing 2 nails to be able to shoot. Give me the model number and brand and I will try and find a print for this tool with firther suggestions, but these would be the most common
There could be a bunch of different problems with a nail gun that does this. First and foremost check to make sure you are using the correct angle,diameter, and head nails for the gun you are using. Sometimes this can cause hangups and not allow the driver to retract. After checking this I would let someone who has worked on nail guns before take a look at it. There could be many different causes, too many to list here. Good luck.
Using a wire "toothbrush" size brush, clean the track in front of the gun where the pin slides - where the nail groove is. **** particles from the nails and the plating from the nails sluffs off fouling the path and causes the pin to stick. After several cleanings of my gun, I noticed that this brushing of the track the firing pin follows keeps it operating for several days without the problem recurring!
Remove any nails in the magazine, and you can carefully take a pin pinch of a size that fits into the nose (where the nails come out). Try to carefully tap the driver back into the gun.This will sometimes clear the jambed nail. If the driver is severely jambed you will have to dismantle the entire unit to separate the driver from the nose of the nailer.
