I found a broken retainer ring in the head of the nailer. It had the striker head jammed in the down position so when you pulled the trigger to arm the head with air pressure, the flooring nailer shot a nail.
Thanks ..

The nail gun will not shoot


I don't have that same model but my gun started doing something similar a while back. I was able to disassemble the head of the gun and found that the hammer or piston that drives the nail had rounded itself off and wasn't able to make good contact with the nail head. Instead it pushed itself on top of the nail and got wedged. It's nearly impossible to see the stuck nail or dulled piston head without taking it apart. Hopefully this will help.

My DeWalt D51845 - when you use the sequential trigger it shoots maybe every 4th time you pull the trigger. If you replace the sequential with the bump trigger ever 3rd one shoots 2 nails.


Check this notice and post your question again if you nailer is not part of this recall. Good luck.

D51844 & D51845 Recall Notice Published 06/09/2005 08:49 AM ' Updated 09/29/2011 09:35 AM What is the recall on the D51844 and D51845 about? The contact trip on some of the nailers may not operate properly, which may permit a nail to be ejected with only trigger actuation.

Only nailers with the following date codes are affected:

200203, 200204, 200217, 200302, 200304, 200308, 200315, 200325, 200329, 200343, 200403, 200404, 200406, 200407, 200412, 200413, 200415, 200416, 200417

Jammed nail gun fc350a


Nail guns will jam when driving nails thru very hard wood, solid objects, allowing the gun to double fire hitting the first nail or using the wrong nails(amoung some of the reasons, you get the idea that jamming is common) . There is no special tool to help in case of jam. You must be creative. I use an old driver shaft from nailer that easily fits into the nose of the gun (you can grind a piece of allen wrench to fit into nose and allow space for the stuck nail). The metel that you use must be very hard and strike with heavy copper or brass hammer (caution, steel hammer may splinter metal, use protective gear ). You will need to strike very hard to remove some stuck nails. If first or second strike results in no movement of driver, remove the head and cylinder of the nailer and place the body of the gun squarely on piece of plywood over concete floor (this will protect the head of the nailer from being damaged). Worst case, you will need to remove the rails. Good luck.

Brand new unit. Used last weekend, no problem. Today, won't shoot nail. Air is released when trigger pulled, but no nail plunged.


Orings /other parts tend to stick when nailer is new. Dewalt uses some vinyl orings that have been causing premature failure. Be sure to add a few drops of oil when used. Too much oil is not good. Wrong oil will cause orings to swell and cause problems such as yours. Your nailer's firing valve can be reset by rapping the nailer against rubber surface such as a thick rugger mat or coiled rubber air hose. Remove airline and nails, being carefull not to damage the head, rap had against rubber mat and retest gun. If it did not reset rap against nose of gun and test. If no joy, you will most likely need to remove head and manually move cylinder up/down and /or check vinyl orings for failure. Before you try to reset the gun, make sure that the safety is pushing the firing pin all the way in. Air removed, look under the trigger as you push down on safey, if it does go all the way in try bump-firing the gun (for test have nails removed). Hold in trigger and quicky /firmly strike gun against rubber pad. Good luck

Senco Finishpro18 just stopped shooting nails. Took it apart, put it together. Shoots a couple of nails, then stops. press the nailer against the target, pull the trigger, and air comes out of the handle.


Do you regularly use air-tool oil placed in the air connection? If it gets a good workout every day, buy an 'inline' oiler that is inserted into the air line which automatically takes care of oiling. Hope this helps!

Senco 601 nailer shoots 2 nails each time the trigger is pulled.


the 601 had a design flaw, in the nose, where the nails hit as the are being pushed forward, the peice was made out of a peice of metal that was too soft, it wore down and that is where you get the double nail problem.

Senco offered a trade in, this was years ago, for a limited time and gave us credit towards new guns, which we gladly did

Sparks from nailer


Do not worry.This is quite normal. It is the metal driver hitting the head of the nail.There are no electrical components in a pneumatic nail gun so this is pure metal-on-metal strike sparks. You may find it is more visible on certain nails than on others. But do not worry. It is normal. You may find the sparks reduce after time as the driver wears a little or takes on a certain shape.

All sounds normal though. Do not worry :)

Won't feed nail


This happens to my gun too. You probably need to oil the gun once in a while. Here is how you fix it:
Disconnect the gun from the compressor first don't wanna get hurt or anything like that. There is a pin that shoots the nail out well that pin is jammed so what you have to do is push that pin to the original position. using a flat head screwdriver would help you to push that pin back into place. Let me know how that turns out please. I pretty sure that is the problem with your gun. Make sure you lubricate the Nailer once in a while.
