Sound like o rings are bad. If you don't know how to rebuild it then have a tool repair shop rebuild it.

SOURCE: 16g wont shoot nails. bottom flat piece comes out

You broke the "hammer" you can open the housing and replace it, fairly simply. You can buy replacement parts at most large scale hardware or tool stores. The task takes about 10 min, and some simple hand tools.

SOURCE: Gun fires, leaves good indentation, no nail. WCE

Remove nails and use thin tool to push driver all the way up to top of cylinder. If the gun fires one nail then skips, the driver is not returning to top of cylinder. If no nails fire, then nails are not feeding into proper position. Driver must return to top to allow nails to feed into position. Most common problems are bent driver, worn piston oring and bad batch of nails(head too large). Good luck

SOURCE: i have three nailers from CH and all of them sound

Check and adjust the air pressure at the compressor. All air tools have a recommended range of pressure, and you may not have enough air for the tool to work. Also, place two drops of pneumatic oil or light machine oil into the air inlet at the nailer, and then connect the hose. Fire the gun several times into scrap wood. Oil with 2 drops daily.
Best regards, --W/D--

SOURCE: air leaks when triggered and no nail

Make sure no nails in gun. With air connected listen for leaking thru nose of the gun also. If leaking thru nose slightly, air is getting past the cylinder seal oring and/or top of cyl is not seating against headvalve. Repair leak to nose of gun before trying to fix head leak. With no air leaking thru nose of gun, add plenty of white grease to orings in the head (one oring at a time) to see if leak is less and/or grease will streak behind the leaking oring. Then repair as needed. May need slightly thicker oring or sand surface where oring makes contact to remove scratches that are allowing air to pass. Also air can enter the head thru the small port in the gasket leading to the head (make sure that the gasket is sealing).

I have a Hitachi NR83A3 framing nail gun. It won't drive nails flush. Adjusting the depth screw from one extreme to the other doesn't appear to help or change the driven nail depth. Any ideas?


Easy to check. Remove nails from gun and connect to air supply. Using hard rubber pad or soft wood depress and hold trigger and push nailer safety against pad and hold there. The gun will fire but the driver will stay down until you pull back on the gun and relieve pressure on the safety foot. With driver down examine the tip of the driver. It should look square and should extend about 1/4 inch or more past the nose. If tip is broken replace driver. If lots of air is leaking past the nose during test, also replace the lower bumper. Good luck

Misfires new gun


If your using refills that have wire holding the nails together.
Check to see if bits of wire, debris is collecting in around the striking hammer. I switched to paper and never looked back. Must have gone through 5k worth of nails and rarely jams. Other things to check,
1. Check the striking hammer, make sure it is not bent or damaged.
2. Check air pressure, Low pressure can cause jamming, misfires.
3. If the tool needs pneumatic oil, 2-3 drops before you start good rule of thumb.
4. Check spring return. Sufficient pressure must be maintained or the nails will not feed properly. Misfires, incorrect feed, jamming etc.
I had a Hitachi brad nailer and it was horrible. Fire 1 brad nail would jam or misfire. Did everything I could think of nothing worked. Put it up, got a Rigid brad nailer and never looked at the Hitachi again. :)
Sometimes you just get a lemon! (PS I understand you have a framing nail gun. Brad nail gun above is used for an example)
Hope this helps

It won't shoot out any nails...pressure is 108psi,nailer has a few drops of oil in it,nails are placed on lower part of the slide


Are you applying downward pressure to the nail gun against the item you are attempting to nail? Many nail guns have a safety feature that requires the nail gun to be pressed firmly against the object.

My nail gun will not fire a nail. Do I need to oil it or something?


Hello, W/D here.

Here's a couple of things to do or check:
1. Put a couple of drops of a light oil in the nailer with the trigger depressed, and the gun disconnected from the hose. Set it to the side for now, with the air inlet facing up.
2. Check the compressor outlet pressures. The gauge nearest the tank is the air pressure on the tank. The gauge closest to to the hose is the tool supply pressure. Between the gauges id the regulator, where you can increase or decrease the pressure to the tool.
3. Check your required air pressure for your nailer, and make sure that your regulator is supplying at least that much to operate the nailer.
4. Connect the nailer to the hose, Spray the underside of the nailer head (the slide assembly where the nails are driven) and try to drive several nails into scrap wood.
5. If the nailer operates properly, all's well. If it still fails to operate, place a few more drops into the air inlet (while holding the trigger down) and wait a few minutes, then try the gun again.
There are other things that can be done, but oiling the nailer should get you going. BTW, you should oil the nailer before each use, and when you put it away.
Best regards, --W/D--

How do I load the 2 1/2 inches nails to my 16 ga porter cable finish nailer? How do I put the oil and what part of the gun?


Hello,

You need to open the nail magazine and you just load one strip of nails at a time, then close the magazine. It will have a spring putting pressure on the nails, so it will have resistance on it and it will increase as you close it.

The oil gets dripped in the air hose connection on the gun before you connect the air. Make sure that this gun actually takes oil, some newer guns are oilless.

Hope this helps,Matt

On the trigger of my Bostich Spiral load nail gun AND my Bostick trim nail gun air is leaking profusely from the trigger. Nail guns were not in use for about a year. When I first used them this weekend,...


A nail gun works on compressed air.
When you hook the air hose to the gun it fills a cylinder with air pressure.
When you pull the trigger. the cylinder pressure is released onto a firing pin that shoots the nail.
The air pressure line is also connected to the trigger and therefore the trigger has to be sealed.

When ever using a nail gun, you add a bit of gun oil in the back of the gun (not 3-in-1motor oil, it has to be non-detergent gun oil)

If you haven't used the gun in a while, it is best to oil up the gun and let the oil run down into the gun.
If you use anything but gun oil, the seals will give out.

Your trigger seal has given out. It is probably an 'O' ring. You can access it by taking it apart. Look for the O ring.
Bostich makes re-build kits for the different guns that you can buy on-line.
Back when I was in construction, there were several nail gun shops that sold and serviced nail guns, and sold nails to the contractors. I don't know if that business model is still active or if you have to send the guns to Bostich service center.

Can i use any brand coil nailes in my nv 45ab2 coil nailer


Yes. Roofing nailers all use about the same size and spacing on coil nails. You will find that Harbor Freight is about 1/2 the price of Home Depot or Lowes for those nails.

Gun stopped driving nails, air escapes from top,


has the gun been cleaned and oiled, i think not.

take the head bolts out of the top of the gun. make sure you pay attention to how everything comes out so you can put it back together.

shake the gun upside down so that the piston comes out. wipe everything down with any petroleum based cleaning solvent to remove all the gunk and reassemble.

pour about 10 dropsof oil down the air input, let it sit there about 5 mins and hook up the air and it should work

Paslode air framer not sinking some nails


Your air pressure is dropping everytime you fire. It sound like your compressor is not cutting back in untill it to low. Not giving your tool enough continuess pressure. Your compressor cut in pressure should be around 90-100psi no less. and your max. pressure no more then 120psi. (Make sure your regulator is set at 110psi)
good luck...!
