Driver slides over the top of the nail bending it and jamming it. It will drive the 1st nail then jams.


Most jamming is caused by either wrong type of nail in gun or the driver blade tip is no longer square. Easy to check both. With nails removed strike nose of gun down against rubber mat or soft wood to move driver down for examination. It should look square. If edges look rounded or chipped, remove driver and use grinder to adjust. To check nails for good fit, lay a strip of nails on the magazine. Align the first nail with the center line of the path of the driver. The rest of the strip of nails should align with the angle of the rails on the magazine + or - 5 degrees ok but any more difference will cause jam. Good luck

Ihave a nail jammed in my gun,I believe there is a release gate but how to open it?


Is this a Dewalt gun?There is a faceplate in front of the barrel/slot. That's what you want to remove. Find the appropriate allen wrench and remove the bolts Your "jam" will be mostly exposed. 9 times out of 10 it's two nails that are wedged together or a bent nail. Using thin sharp tool or another nail pry the jammed nail(s) out. Note: be sure to keep that slot oiled, it is very important!

The gun will fire the first time but will jam when i try to fire it again.


Assuming that the gun will not jam with nails removed and the driver returns to top of cylinder when fired without nails. If the driver is bent the nailer will jam without nails. Jamming is usualy caused by bent driver, driver tip worn (not square), or wrong nails. If the driver is not bent and the tip is square, suspect wrong nails. Easy test. Place a strip of nails on outside of rails with the nail heads aligned with top of rail. Move the strip of nails toward the nose if gun. With the heads aligned with the top of the rail, the first nail should align with the path of the driver. If the first nail does not align with the path of the driver and the head is angled slightly away from the path of the driver, the driver may strike the shaft of the first nail pushing the nails back into the rails. If the head of the first nail is forward with the nail shaft angled back away, the nail will flip causing jam. The first nail should align with the path of the driver to prevent jam. It is difficult to find perfectly made nails that align correctly. But certainly check the nails with test mentioned above with every new box for accuracy. You might find that you will need to change brands to get a good fit. Good luck.

Ridgid coilnail gun jams and safty jams in place and gun will not fire. also somtimes will jam


if safety is jamming, its either bent or the pin that keeps it in place is missing/broken, you can find the pin right in front of the trigger. now as far as the nails jamming could be a few things. 1. wrong nails 2.right nail but may have gotten a defective batch 3. bucket that holds nails is adjusted to wrong size. 4.nails have been dropped/ squished and coil is not round anymore 5. nose is very worn and two nails are trying to come out at a time 6. driver is worn/broken and is trying to push out two nails at one time

Bostitch framing nailer f21pl jammed 2 nails need to know how to clear the jam.


better to take it to a nailer repair shop, some nail jams can be very tricky, but if you are going to try to fix it. use a nail punch or other metal rod and with a hammer you might can remove the nails, DO NOT use a piece of metal that is larger than the nose.

Nailer will get two nails jammfrontiered at same time about every 3rd nail


Nail jamming is caused when the driver is able to hit two nails with one stroke. This usually happens on nailers that use nail strips with no spacing between nails. If the driver is damaged, it may be able to hit part of the second nail. If the wrong nail is used and two nail heads are in the path of the driver then jam. On nailers using nailstrip with space between nails, it is much harder for driver to hit two nails. Most jamming, however is caused by the nailer actually firing twice in very rapid succession. this type of jam is caused by faulty firing mech. (safety foot or bump fire system) , faulty/worn trigger valve or worn orings in the headvalve .

Here is the link but I copied the instructions here too

Loading Staples or Nails

Make sure there are no staples or nails jammed from previous usage by checking the handle operation.

CAUTION: IF A STAPLE OR NAIL IS JAMMED, POINT THE GUN AWAY FROM

YOURSELF AND OTHERS BEFORE OPENING THE TRACK AS THE JAMMED

STAPLE OR NAIL MAY BE FIRED OUT UPON OPENING

i) Point the bottom of the gun away from you and turn gun sideways.

ii) Turn gun up, grip track release buttons and push away to release, then slide the track out, as shown (fig. 1).

iii) Insert a strip of staples in the chamber with the legs pointing up (fig.1a). If nails are required, turn gun upside

down and tilt the gun away from yourself and load on the right hand side (as indicated on graphics at the

staple and nail exit) with point facing upwards (fig.1b) THE GUN MAY JAM IF NAILS ARE INSERTED IN THE

WRONG SIDE.
*Arrow

iv) Slide staple or nail track back into closed position - a click indicates that it is locked in position.
Your staple and nail gun is now ready for use.

My Task Force electric finishing nail gun is jammed. How do I get at the problem?


The nail gun I have has two hex screws in front where the nails come out. Remove the two screws. Remove the spring plate and cover plate. You should find your jammed nail there. Put those pieces back and it should work. My gun jams after about ten nails so I have done this many times. Make sure you are using the right nails or it will jam a lot. Hope this helps.

How do you safely remove jammed nail gun?


Not sure exactly what Bostitch framer model you have, but if it is powered by compressed air, as long as you remove the air hose from the nail gun, there should be no risk of the nail gun firing while you remove the jammed nail. There should be a way to access the driver area from the top of the nail gun, even via a latch or a couple screws. Remove the top part of the driver area and that should give you access to the jammed nail, which you can remove. Use long nose pliers or something similar if the nails are really stuck.

Nail jam


There are several allen-key style screws just above the shaft/magazine on this nail gun. Remove those and you should be able to lift the top cover plate and access the shaft and remove the jammed nail. Then replace all back in reverse order (pretty easy to do). Of course, ensure no air supply is connected to the nail gun when you do this.
