SOURCE: when I pull the trigger, the nailer just goes

The first thing that comes to mind is they are not being oiled properly. Follow the directions for the number of drops of air tool oil to put in daily. If they have been run dry, this makes quick work of the Orings and requires rebuilding the nailer with new Orings.

The second thing is if contamination has gotten into the cylinder bottom thaat can happen if a jam has ever occured.

Dis-assemble the nailer and inspect for these conditions.

Brand new and leaks all of the air our the top, no power to shoot brad.


hi Philip, if pressing the gun down on timber and pulling the trigger doesn't release the switch to close the valve spray a little lubricant down the inlet connector with the trigger pressed then release. apply air and keep trying and if all else fails I think its time to return for a replacement or refund.

Nailer is shooting air out of trigger, is not releasing brad


Sounds like the head valve. Remove the head cap take out the head valve, clean, re-fit and give it a few drops of air line oil. Then give it a try. Good luck.

NEW BRAD NAILER ONCE LOADED WILL NOT WORK


Many modern brad and finish nails use a sequential fire trigger system. You have to push the nose of the tool down to depress the safety THEN pull the trigger. This is the opposite of how a bottom fire works where you hold the trigger and bump the nose to fire the gun.

I have a poter cable brad nailer and after running


Sounds like a trigger seal. I assume this is an oil-less brad nailer as that is the standard. You should be able to find the seals at any local hardware store including Home Depot or Lowes. If you can't find the portercable O-rings just grab the random assortment from Bostitch which is usually readily available. Refer to your parts manual for the correct size/gauge

Porter cable brad nailer only fires brad on second trigger pull


The dent in the wood is not caused by the air. It's caused by the set that drives the brad. Are you oiling it consistenly? Are the brads the right manufacturer for your porter cable brad nailer? From the information you give it appears that the brads are not advancing correctly or that the air pressure is not sufficient to dislodge the brad from the brad strip on the first strike - it takes an additional strike to break it free. The standard for adding oil is to add ten drops of air tool oil for every hour of operation. That seems like a lot, but the correct amount of oil is a sure way to prevent most air tool problems.

No brad


Your anvil is not returning to the home position to allow the brad to index into the receiver. Try and push the anvil up all the way to the home position. If that works, then you need lubrication, new return spring, etc. All related to the anvil firing.
