Pin nailer problem

Nice video, you did not mention a model number so I will give you general information. If your nailer is oil free type (gun will have stamped on body, no oil ), and you have been using oil directly or indirectly, most likely rubber diaph. is bad or leaking slightly thru head. Replace headvalve. If your nailer uses orings in the head /headvalve instead of diaph. type firing valve, remove head pull headvalve and apply plenty of white grease or silicone paste and retest. If gun works with grease then most likely needs oring kit and or trigger valve or orings in the trigger. If the gun still will not function correctly with grease in the head, then orings in the trigger are worn. Good luck

Senco nailer won't fire nails, but the firing pin dents the wood almost 1/4 inch.

Hi Jes,

Are the nails moving freely in the magazine if you pull the mag spring back? If so, then the driver blade is not returning to top dead centre - leaving enough of the blade to stop the next nail moving into the nose. This could be caused by a slight back pressure in the cylinder so, check the exhaust is clean and free of any swarf. Or check the O Ring on the driver blade, even though you've just replaced them....

Nail gun won't discharge a nail

Open the front and see if the nails are feeding through. If the piston is down push it up, close the front and try again.

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.

My nailer won't work

Do you have a constant air leak at the head of the gun? If so you have a blown diaphram seal. Order from mfg.

Nailer wont recycle

That would be the cylinder check seal on the outside of the cylinder sleeve. That sits in the groove with little holes in it. When The driver goes down the air goes out the little holes and forms a vacuum above the driver, pulling the driver blade assembly back up. So if the cylinder seal is bad it won`t work.
