    whe i push trigger it just pops at the trigger and nothing happens ? When it quit i was using it and the push rod stopped at the full out position and the trigger started popping when i pushed it. I checked o rings in the body and they looked okay. I pushed the rod back down, oiled it well and still had the same problem.

    I have a craftsman framing nailer that leaks air from the trigger when depressed and does not fire a nail. I borrowed the gun and it worked for two days when this issue occurred. I bought the "trigger kit" from Sears parts direct and installed the new trigger plunger and o-rings. The gun worked for two days, maybe fired 150 nails and then the same issue has occurred again. Is this gun just a POS or is there some fundamental issue I have?

Where does the air leak out from? If it leaks from the trigger DeWalt makes a trigger valve assembly part # 641006-00 list 8.89 BUT if it leaks from other areas we have to look into it deeper. If it is just the trigger valve let me know and I will give you instructions how to remove and install the new one.

My 18 gauge Bostich brad nailer would not fire, and air came out around the trigger. Even though the gun is advertised as oil less - this is what remedied my problem - a drop of oil. I put one drop of oil in the slot where the brads come out [realizing that is where the driver is located] and left the gun upright for some time. The next time I used the gun it worked just fine. A drop of oil can also be added into the gun where the air hose is hooked up. Do not over-do the oil process, but don't ignore it.

Bostitch just blows air when trigger is pulled


Air leaking from trigger when attempting to fire the gun is normal and should cause nailer to fire, however if the trigger pin is not depressed all the way in,the gun may not respond. Easy test. Remove the nails and remove the trigger. Connect the gun to air and quickly depress the valve pin all the way in with finger. If the gun fires, adjust the safety foot so that the trigger pin is depressed all the way in. If the gun still does not fire, then remove the head cap and pull out the headvalve. Apply plenty of white grease to orings and retest. If the gun fires, then replace the headvalve orings. When the headvalve orings are worn, air will leak from bulkhead chamber to the headvalve chamber causing the gun to not respond to the trigger. The addition of grease to worn orings will make them temporarily seal. Good luck

Nail gun no longer fires. Leaks air around trigger when trigger depressed. It is in single fire mode.


You will have to take the gun apart and change the rubber o-ring gasket for the trigger mechanism..Go to a Home Depot or other contractor outlet to get parts or info...The gasket actually keeps the air from leaking so it will nail.

Dewalt nailers use some orings that are made of vinyl (clear to yellow in color instead of buna or viton). These orings fail by getting soft and sticky. The gun may not leak but will not work correctly. The trigger should fire the gun when depressed about 1/2 way in. The oring repair kit has the same orings. I use generic orings in the gun to solve the problem. There are two orings inside the gun that should be changed and at least two on the trigger valve stem. In time the gun may fire a nail when you connect the hose. Check the internet for recall on some of these guns. The orings in the gun that should be replace make contact between the white cylinder spacer and the cylinder (smaller is standard oring # 141 the larger is 74.4mm x 3.1mm). The two rings on the trigger stem are 2mm x 1.5mm . If you do not have a source for orings then just replace the trigger valve. You also might try setting the depth adjustment all the way down. Good luck.

I have a hitachi nr90ae that will not fire. Depress nose and trigger and gets nothing. What's next?


Remove nails and air supply. Firmly depress safety foot against work with trigger depressed and make sure that firing pin is pushed all the way in. If firing pin is being activated by safety foot most likely problem is stuck cylinder or head valve. If the gun has been dropped the cylinder my jam. Remove the head and make sure that the cylinder and or headvalve moves and that the driver is not stuck in place. Good luck

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

There are about three issues with this gun that could cause your problem. The safety contact arm not depressing the trigger pin fully, worn trigger valve (tva6), or leaking orings in the headvalve. Easy tests. Remove the nails, and remove the trigger to expose the tva6 valve. Reconnect air and with very quick and firm action, depress trigger pin all the way in. If the gun fires, adjust safety foot and trigger so that the trigger pin is depressed all the way in each time that you fire the gun. If the gun does not fire, remove the head and remove the headvalve. Examine the surface/s where Orings make contact with magnify glass looking for fine scratches. Sand with 400 grit paper. Orings must make good contact here or gun will not fire. Lube orings and surface with silicone paste lube (sold at Lowes in the plumbing department or swimming pool supply store). If no fine scratches and surface looks smooth, replace Orings in head and the tva6 valve. Good luck with your repair/

Remove the nails and air supply. With side door open notice position of driver. Driver should be at top position with tip not visible. If driver is down and it moves within cylinder when you tilt nose up then down again, time to replace orings. If driver is down, it should extend past the nose about 1/4 inch (if driver is broken at the tip the end will look rough and nail will not drive in all the way). If driver extends past the nose more than 1/4 inch then lower bumper may be breaking up /cracked. Easy test for proper function. With nails removed and side door open, connect air to gun and dry fire gun against hard rubber or old coiled air-hose (with air connected and trigger depressed, no air should leak from trigger area, if air leaks when trigger is depressed, look for fault at trigger pin). Feeder should move back then forward in quick motion almost matching speed of driver and driver should not creep down between shots. No air should leak from nose of the gun (push nose against hard rubber and depress trigger and hold in this position, driver should stay down with very little or no air leaking out of nose, when you release trigger, driver will return). If air leaks out of nose while holding in this position, replace lower bumper. If a quantity of air leaks from valve in front of trigger, cylinder orings may need replacing or outer part of cylinder has fine scratches (remove scratches with 400 grit paper). Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com. Good lucki

Once trigger is depressed, air leaks and no nail is fired....


Sounds like the trigger o-ring is damaged, either because of not being oiled frequently, or the pneumatic tool has not been used for a while. O-rings will harden up if not used. Look for a place that sells fasteners, or nails and see if they can put a new o-ring in the trigger asm. for you. If you take the gun to a place where you purchase your nails, they should repair for little or no cost. it is an easy repair if you have the tools, parts, etc.
