SOURCE: porter cable roofing gun

The problem that you describe could be caused by three things. First remove the cylinder and look for a black rubber band around the cylinder about med section. There is an indention with holes where it is supposed to be. The band should fit snuggly so that it does not slip off during use. Secondly, check that the piston oring/plastic ring holds the piston in the cylinder without just dropping under its own weight. Third, the upper bumper could have a crack or missing piece. Remove it and check. (vinyl part in headvalve) Parts are available at dewalt repair center or www.toolpartsdirect.com. enjoy

SOURCE: air nailer won't nail

If youve never done anything to it could be a couple things. Have you kept it oiled (about 6-8 drops) before using and again at lunch if construction type work. Check the nails to make sure they move freely in the magazine Check the nail guage for proper size. and what I would do is fire it till it skips disconnect the air from tool and open the front door (for removing jams) and see the driver position. If it is partially down that would be the problem, check the driver for being bent. Lastly remove all nails and just tap the nose on a piece of wood and again check the driver position, if it moves or falls freely then the tool would have to have new rubber which might be a good idea anyway. Get back to me with the model number and I will research and see if they make an o ring kit.

SOURCE: porter cable fc350a frame nailer shoots just air

Could be a couple things, first are you using the right nails in the gun e.g. collation and degree. Second do the nails move freely in the magazine and how is the pusher spring on the nail does it have enough pressure. Then I would unplug from air remove all the nails andjust tap the nose on a piece of wood and does the driver drop? If so the piston Oring is worn and needs replaced, but if you do that I would recommend replacing all the rubber. Let me know and I would need the exact model number to come up with parts.

Your gun is having a return problem, more than likely, the diphram on the top the of the gun leaking. You should be able to find a top end kit where you get your guns serviced/purchased

Can My FC 350 A used 28 degree nails


The manual for your gun specifies 34-degree nails from 2 to 3 1/2 inches long. 28-degree, wire collated nails are a Stanley-Bostitch thing and they only work in their nail guns, they will not work in your nail gun. You need 34-degree, paper-tape collated nails. I know Senco framing nails will work in your gun and I think Duo-fast makes 34-drgree nails but check that before buying them.

Miss fires and wont sink nails depth set deep and pressure over 120 psi


If no air is leaking from gun, miss-fire is usually caused by worn or too tight piston oring or lack of lubrication. Easy test. Disconnect airline, remove nails, point nose of gun up then down. Driver should stay in uppermost position. If driver moves up then down within gun replace piston oring and retest. Set pressure to about 100psi. Good luck with repair.

I have a porter cable roofing nailer model # RN175 that does not advance the nails everytime what causes this?


Some causes, in order of probability:
Roofing nailers get a lot of tar build up on them, especially around the nose safety and nail feed pawl area. Cleaning off this buildup will usually take care of most problems with roofing nailers.
On the side of the gun away from the side you load the nails on there is a small cylinder with a piston inside that attaches to the feeder pawl. If air isn't getting to the piston or the piston's o-ring or spring is damaged, it won't cycle properly to advance the nails.
If the driver doesn't retract fully, the next nail won't be able to advance properly for the next shot. This can be caused by o-rings in the head that are worn or out of their proper place.

When firing nailer first nail shoots good but next nails head will get stuck between the push rod chamber. push doesnt seem to return fully top when nail is cycled.


Try oiling the tool first. Remove the nails, squirt a decent amount of air tool oil in the stem where the air hose coupler connects, and fire the tool a dozen times or so. Then put in the nails and test. If it still hangs up then it will need the o-rings replaced.

Will work fine for one or two nails and then nails jam in the gun or it shoots two or three at once.


This is iffy... but PC nailers are nit picky. If you used someone elses nails, it can (and will) jam and mess up.
So, if Porter Cable nails are being used, clean and lube the nail shoot (with a few drops of air tool oil).

If that does not work, Invest 19 dollars in a new, 18 guage nailer at Harbor Freight. I have 2 of those and they have been trouble free for 3 years.
