SOURCE: D51844 Won't Fire Nails

The Dewalt D51844 uses a full round head 20 degree nail. Sometimes the generic brand nails are not made exactly to the stated degree. They do this so their nails will work on a variety of nailers. Best to check the nails angle in relation to the angle of your nailer. Place a strip of nails on the outside of the rail. Align the heads of the nails to a convenient straight edge on the rail then check that the head and shaft of the first nail is aligned with the barrel. If the lower part of the nail projects out further than the head, then the driver will miss the head. If the head of the first nail appears close enough to barrell for the driver to hit it then place a new strip of nails into the mag and slide the pusher foward. Fire one nail, if success, remove the nails from the mag and check if the plastic holding the nails together is projecting in front of the first nail. Sometimes the plastic is not right, too stiff, and will not let the next nail align with the barrell. If the next nail appears ready and slides forward then the driver may not be going all the way up after shot. Check by inserting a metal rod into barrell and push driver up till it stops. If the driver is in the uppermost position, then most likely brand of nails. Use Dewalt nail. Good Luck

How do I load my frame nailer

Just pull the pusher back along the magazine all the way until it latches. It should be located on the side of the magazine and looks like something you can grab with your fingers. Then load the nails in through the slot. Pull back on the same pusher until it unlatches and it should slide forward to push the nails toward the head.

Ism coil roofing nailer will not hold nails in striking chamber after they advance

The feeder area of the nailer incorporates small levers on both sides of the nails. On the body side, the spring loaded feeder retracts and pulls forward the first nail. On the latch side small spring loaded arm/s hold the nails in place once they are pulled forward. Open the latch and push on both the feeder and the retanier for firm spring tension. On some nailers, due to wear, the grippers on the feeder tend to wear off allowing the nail to slip out of place. On other nailers, the feeder arm/shaft tends to wear and alows the feeder to move out of alignment (check if the actual feeder arm can move from side to side). The feeder shaft should move forward and back with no side to side movement. Finally, some coil nails are welded together with too stiff of wire. After the first nail is driven, the second nail will have one or two strands of wire pointing out not allowing the nails to move into position. After first shot, the two wires should be cut off or bent down out of the way. Good luck.

My brand new DC608 18 gauge nailer jams every time on the 2nd nail.

Per your addendum I would have first told you to check that you are using the proper guage nails. Second you should make sure you are loading the nails in the lowest channel in the magazine so they are at the bottom of the magazine. If you load them into the top of the magazine they have more time to go off course before they get into the wood.
