This sounds like it might be a problem with the nails themselves. Have you tried another brand? If the place you got the nailer is nearby, ask them about the problem. Also look if the carrier strip MIGHT not be clearing and preventing the advancement of the nails. I would also try a light spray on the coil of CRC226 available at Home Depot in the electrical dept.

The driver is coming down far enough to break the nail off the strip but not far enough to drive it in. This could be caused by any of the following:
- The driver is broken off and too short to drive the nail
- The driver is bent and doesn't travel all the way down
- The seal/o-ring on the piston is damaged and air is leaking past it
Any of the above will require you to remove the head and inspect the driver, piston and o-rings or have a service center check it out.

Stop using it and take it in for service. If it is leaking air then an o-ring or seal may have failed (most likely guess) and it needs to be replaced.
