    actually, I have it apart and there is no spring, but it seems that when a nail fires the extra exuast air makes the pin go back, I;m not sure what part controls it, maybe a check valve.

There is a spring that is broken or the joint just needs some lubricant that can help take care of this issue

Nailer will shoot a nail, but will not foward the next nail. Gun is new maybe 15 lbs of nails or so.


If the nail will not advance, easy test will determine problem. Open door and remove the nails. Lightly tap the nose of the gun against coiled rubber hose or soft wood with door open. If the driver falls to bottom, the piston oring needs to be replaced. The driver should stay at top of cylinder. Next pull back the feeder to rear position and check for tension. The feeder should spring back towards you when you push. Finally, the check paws on the door should return to extended positon when you push on them. Replace springs as needed. Connect air to gun and rapidly bump fire the gun against rubber. The feeder should move back and forward just as quickly as the driver moves. Good luck

Shooting 2 nails at one time


A nailer driving two nails at a time is usually because the tip of the driver is bent causing it to catch two nails each time it comes down. On rare occasions you can remove the piston/driver and straighten it out but usually not. The driver is hardened steel and has to be perfectly straight to work properly. The part you need is Hitachi's piston, part number 884-330. Shop around the net for one as they are expensive, usually $70 to $80 plus shipping.

Hitachi NR83A2 nailer pushes next nail down


Are you using full round head nails?

The hissing indicates your O-rings are worn out and need to be replaced. This is not covered by warrenty and is common for all nail guns. Lots of kits are available on Ebay or your local Hitachi service center should stock them.

Hope this helps,

Cheers

Nails ride over each other and don't shoot straight


Check and make sure your using the right nails. Are they held together with plastic? This should be a 21* full round head nail with plastic collation

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.
