SOURCE: nail gun wont fire

First - the air pressure has to be high enough - check the regulator on the tank to make sure it is delivering in excess of 60-70 psi (which I am sure you have already done).

If you have dry fired these guns (i.e. shot them off with no nails in them while you were lubricating them maybe) the mechanism inside could be damaged. I had that happen to one of my nailers (same brand). That was when I learned not to dry fire them...

Since both of them are not working though I would be more inclined to look at the air supply first.

Try another brand of nails -- maybe your gun doesn't like those. Also, blow any dirt out of the nail magazine.

Air comes out the nose of my dewalt framing nailer


Again sounds like blown O ring give it a squirt of 3in1 oil and fire it several times (if oil is compatible in your gun). Repair center if that doesn't work. Trash can also get in the air orifice and stop moving parts from moving.

Dc628 wont drive nails all the way


Its all about power. If you have air pressure and its the right nail it will shoot. If its oak or maple nope it most likely cant drive it up. If your pressure switch has a 90-120 spread, it will work at 120 and fail at 90. You sometimes can good results by bumping it up 5# or so without the pop off loosing its cool.

I have the dewalt 18 volt nail gun. The slide hammer sticks in the out position after driving a nail. Can anyone help give me answers why?


Firrst clean and lubricate slide portion that drives nail in. Dirt will cause this sometimes. If problem persists you may have a bent driver and may have to be replaced. If you can remove front guide, check for burs or gouges on metal.

The gun won't put out any nails anymore......It is a cordless bradnailer..


If it is the cordless Brad Nailer and will not fire nails anymore chances are the drive belt came off track. Internally those DeWalt cordless nailers operate much like a Baseball pitching machine. And when you fire a nail the drive belt pinches the driver blade which fires the nail. Here is the product documentation from DeWalt's website. http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/Products/DocumentView.aspx?productid=68728&typeId=16768&documentId=35981
The Drive belt is part #59. I have never opened one of these before so I can not tell you if it is a simple fix, I would open it up and peek around just a few screws on the top should open it. If you do not feel comfortable opening that unit yourself, I would take it to an Authorized DeWalt repair facility.

Dewalt dc618 nailer is not firing


I have both the DC616 and 618 and have used them sucessfully for about three years. Two main things go wrong. There is a drive belt that breaks (drives the spool that give the energy to drive in the nails), second are two small rubber bands on either side of the drive head that break. The bands can be accessed by taking off the front silver cover, the drive belt is access by spliting the case. Make sure you are using the correct nails or the drive pin may become bent and will jamb repeatedly. Hope that helps!
