Question about Porter Cable Cable No. FC350A Clipped Head Framer

Porter cable fc350a frame nailer shoots just air

Sometimes my nailer will just shoot air, especially when trying to shoot sideways on ground. We have to shoot straight down and it will work for a few more times and then shoot air again. As long as I shoot at level up and down angel, it shoots just fine.

Could be a couple things, first are you using the right nails in the gun e.g. collation and degree. Second do the nails move freely in the magazine and how is the pusher spring on the nail does it have enough pressure. Then I would unplug from air remove all the nails andjust tap the nose on a piece of wood and does the driver drop? If so the piston Oring is worn and needs replaced, but if you do that I would recommend replacing all the rubber. Let me know and I would need the exact model number to come up with parts.

My pneumatic nailer


ok, so your nails are correct size gauge, and the right length too?? sometimes when shooting at 120psi into pine the nail is blown through the material. test it on something first something thinner that you can see if its working at all, or put in like 5 nails and see after you shoot if you still have 5 nails in the magazine.
if so make sure, nothing is obstructing the magazine chute to the driver, also make sure the nails are in the correct slot for them to be struck. keep me posted.

Miss fires and wont sink nails depth set deep and pressure over 120 psi


If no air is leaking from gun, miss-fire is usually caused by worn or too tight piston oring or lack of lubrication. Easy test. Disconnect airline, remove nails, point nose of gun up then down. Driver should stay in uppermost position. If driver moves up then down within gun replace piston oring and retest. Set pressure to about 100psi. Good luck with repair.

My nailer shoots double and jams,its not seen much use.


It sounds like you either have the wrong nails or a damaged discharge area of the gun. open it up and see what damage is apparent.

Leaking air when trigger is depressed


This is an indication of a defective seal. Try adding a little pneumatic oil to the gun and triggering it a few times. Sometimes all it is is a small leak in the o-ring because of a lack of lubrication. If not, then try replacing the o-rings (kit available for around $20). The next possibility is the trigger itself. I have replaced the trigger assembly on mine once thus far.

Good luck,
Dan

Paslode nail guns won't shoot


piston is probably jammed

This happens sometimes try holding it up against a board with the trigger depressed and then inset the battery.

The goal is to try to force the firing sequence to get the piston back to the right position with corded units this is simply done by attaching the air hose with the trigger pulled this causes air to rush into the gun chamber pushing the piston back and firing a nail out.

The cause of this is a misfire or jammed nail that stopped the piston in the wrong location so air will not build in the chamber correctly.

Hope that helps
