    I have a Porter Cable Bammer 6020 finish nailer. I ran out of gas and purchased some fuel cells on the net. I loaded the gun and it fires once. I have to lock the gun and pump and squeeze the trigger three times, unlock the gun and it fires once. I then have to repeat the process. I have tried all three fuel cells I purchased with the same result. Is the problem in the gun or the fuel cell? This Gun has always worked perfect for me. I can see nothing outside that looks worn.

Replace the O Rings and the trigger valve assembly. 9/10 sticking rods on the Porter Cable guns is caused by a faulty TVA.

I have the porter cable 10 gallon tool trigger drywall vac why is it that the bags keep braking. Have had it for years and it's only been about the last two years they rip open way before they are half...

Need some more information, are you vacuuming dry wall dust or wet dust or saw dust ? The reason I ask is sometime their are "upgrades" available for the newer models of vacs you may not be aware of, when I worked at the Big Box H D tool rental center the vac we rented out used a water filtration set up instead of bags U might wont to check newer model for any changes, like you ,I had Craftsman for over 15 yrs. and when it died the replacement vac had a new mod for the filter that I always thought was needed. Good luck , Bret

Kirby Manual

The spray gun instruction HERE but be very careful - try shampooing in an inconspicuous area first. This is essentially as if you would buy some of those "spray on" upholstery cleaners in an aerosol cans.

Good Luck,

Upholstry set up for ultimate g kirby.

Remove the entire cloth bag assembly and put the hose on the side where the bag came from. Remove the power nozzle and put the intake guard onto the front. (this is in your attachment set...the only one with little hooks that sit on the bar in front) You can change from the long handle to the short if you'd like also. You get the handles off by pushing the "seatbelt button" located at the rear bottom of the handle and pulling the handle straight up and out. Now, put your spray gun on the hose. Don't forget the little suds nozzle that goes on the end of the spray gun. I like to use a half and half solution of Kirby shampoo and water in the gun. It makes a nice dry foam that only wets the surface of the furniture. If you use more water, it takes longer to dry.

If you need a manual (book or DVD) for your Kirby, try this link....

Hope I helped...
