SOURCE: My hitachi nailer is not firing. Sounds as if the

This sounds like the nailer is not in the "home" position. Usually this is due to a leak in the o-ring or a lack of lubrication that is not allowing the plunger to return to the home position. If you can get an O-ring kit, I'd replace all of the orings and make sure that everything is properly lubricated. Should that not fix the problem, the next likely candidate would be the trigger assembly itself. The O-ring kit will run about $20 or so and a similar amount for the trigger assembly.

Hope this helps,

Dan

With 90 # air and PC nails. When I pull the trigger nothing happens. No air noise, no nailing, no movement - just dead. It's been oiled every use.


Most likely stuck trigger valve. Easy to check. Remove nails, remove trigger to expose the firing pin of trigger valve. Connect air and very quickly depress the firing pin all the way in. If the gun fires , adjust the safety to depress the trigger valve completely. If the gun does not fire, replace firing valve, or remove and check /lube o-rings in valve. Good luck

My hitachi nail gun NR90gc2 will not fire


Check the date of the bottom of the gas. With the gas removed when you fire it you should hear a faint spark sound from the top. If gas is in date try putting it in your pocket for 10 minutes to warm it up. Open the front and make sure the piston is pushed all the way up into the machine.

Nail gun problem


This is a bottom fire tool. (NV83A2) You need to hold the trigger down and then as you place the nailer to the wood the safety will depress and it will fire once. This is usually done in one, swift action. If you do this in the opposite way by placing the tool to the wood and then pulling the trigger they often will double fire.

Hitachi NR83AA shoots two nails on one pull of the trigger?


Best practice is to bump fire the gun to prevent double fire. Do not place the gun on the work and pull the trigger. This takes practice while using at an angle. Works better if the nose piece has rather sharp points to help nose to stay in postion while you bump. With trigger depressed, practice without nails bumping/hitting wood at different angles untill you can bump hit at the spot that you need the fastener. If the gun double fires while bump-firing, most likely all the safety/trip parts are worn/loose. Not expensive to replace. Good luck.

Trigger may be dirty, as an electrical switch the contacts can be intermittent. Also check to see if the safety plunger is set to correct depth and moving freely. Dirt can build up here......

Paslode nail gun 325 black not firing


Any time these guns become intermittent or stop firing but the fan still runs, the first the to check is the expiration date on the gas cartridges. The do expire and this will make the gun work inconsistently or not at all.

Hitachi NR 83A2S, Nail wont fire properly


The NR83a has an adjustment just below the triggering plunger. It is a 6mm hex head bolt with a locking nut. Loosen the nut and adjust screw out several turns and re-test. Make adjustment as necessary. I have seen many of these gun without the locking nut which allows the bolt the adjust itself all the way down. AS parts wear this screw needs to be adjusted. The pushing lever and the plunger are wearing smaller/shorter, that is unless the locking nut was missing. Remove gun from air supply for safety when making adjustments. Good Luck an email if you have other qustion about this gun.
