You can buy an o-ring kit from part store or hardware store. Just buy the variety pack. also check to see if you have an air adjustment valve. Most of them do.

    Has this gun worked well before with the compressor you are using? Does the gun's PSI match that of what your compressor puts out?

My frame pro 601 will sometimes shoot one to five times and then when you pull the triger nothing happens air comes out the core valve hole above the trigger when pulled then you can unplug air and tap on...

Senco makes a kit for your nail gun, part number YK0360. If you have any o-rings giving you problems, it's always best to replace all of them. You can get them from online parts stores like or possibly from rental or repair places near you. Make sure you lubricate all the o-rings well when putting the new ones in.

When i connect the air it sounds like all the air is escaping.

depends on where air is escaping from. If it is around the trigger then you need a new trigger valve (I have detailed instructions in the tip section on repair) If it is leaking thru the cap you have a pinch o ring or stuck firing valve. Let me know exactly where air is leaking and I will try to pinpoint the problem for you.

I have a N80SB stick nail gun that have been leaking air from the trigger valve but was still able to shoot nails. After 3 months of discontinued use, I plugged in the air hose and fire the first nail

A new trigger valve and o-ring kit will give you a like new gun. Just remember to replace all available o-rings in the kit, lightly grease all of them as you reassemble the gun and use pneumatic oil at the beginning of the day so you won't be doing it again in a couple months.

My senco 1/4" crown air stapler would not drive a staple & now leaks air constantly

It sounds like you have broken or damaged o-rings inside the gun and the only repair is to replace them. Senco does make kits to rebuild most of their guns. Go to and click on 'Parts Charts' at the top of the page then find your model. The PARTS GUIDE will list a rebuild kit if one is available. The part number will start with YK followed by four numbers. If there isn't a rebuild kit available for your gun, you'll have to order each o-ring seperately. All o-ring part numbers start with LB.

SENCO Framing nailer suddenly decided not to fire. Air escapes from top of gun when trigger is pulled

You have some worn/broken o-rings inside the gun. You need Senco repair kit #YK0360 to fix it. Fairly easy to replace the o-rings, just be sure to put lots of lube on the rings as you put it back together.

I have a constant flow of air coming out of the front of the firing nozzle. What is causing this? I have a Bostitch N50FM.

Air leaking from gun where nail is driven out is caused by faulty cylinder seal and /or orings that seal cylinder to body of gun. Remove head and examine cylinder seal that sits on very top of the cylinder, if cracked, damaged or is loose fitting, replace. Pull cylinder from body of gun and remove the plastic ring. Examine ring and replace if cracked. Replace orings that contact ring. Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect. Good luck

Air is escaping from the top of the bn125a brad nailer. It won't fire nails.

it sounds like you have a damaged o ring/seal that requires maintenance. You can go to and download a breakdown for this tool and also order parts for it. When reinstalling new o rings don't forget to put a little bit of grease on them so they don't roll or pinch. Let me know if you need more help

Nail gun leaking air through the nose.

Lets assume you have oiled the gun. Before you run out and buy an o-ring kit for this, take the gun apart and look for anything that may be jammed inside the gun. This could be dirt, grit or an unfired nail. The gun is very simple inside so don't be afraid to do this yourself. Undo the 4 hex screws holding on the cap at the back of the gun. Put the nose of the gun in a vise or get a friend to hold the gun for you. Grab hold of the cylinder inside the gun and pull it out. Wiggle it around and pull at the same time, it will be tight but it will come out. Totally disassemble the cylinder. If the seals look good take a very close look at the "Bulkhead". It is made of plastic and is prone to get very small hairline cracks in it and this will leak air. Look inside the cylinder and make sure the walls are smooth and not scored. This is all very easy to do. Don't just buy an o-ring kit assuming it will fix the problem. Look for the simple stuff first, it may save you some time and money. AGAIN IF THE O-RINGS LOOK GOOD TAKE A VERY CLOSE LOOK AT THE BULKHEAD AND LOOK FOR CRACKS, IF AIR IS LEAKING FROM THE NOSE THIS SHOULD BE THE FIRST PLACE TO LOOK AND COSTS ABOUT $7.00 TO REPLACE..........
