Pin does not retract after firing. - Air Tools & Compressors

    I have done this already and it still does not work. The firing pin will retract if I take the tension of the nail holder and i turn the gun upside down. Do you think it might be a bent blade? What makes the blade retract? Thank you.

Easy fix. unplug the air or electric first. Then disassemble the nose, usually requires an allen wrench. Remove any built up dirt or other debris and put a drop of air tool oil on the moving parts. then reassemble. FIXED.

    the blade could be bent but that is rare. if you think it is bent, straighten it.



    also put three drops of air tool oil into the fitting where you attach the air or oil the entire mechanism. Which tool are u using, brand name and model?

Porter cable 15ga finish gun pin doesnt retract after firing


Porter cable uses a rubber band around the cylinder as check seal to push cylinder up. Pull cylinder and make sure that the band is place around series of holes in cylinder (about center of the cylinder ). If the band is in place then check for too much air leaking out of the nose due to worn/cracked bumper or lower bushing (washer with slot). If bumper and lower washer good, suspect debris in head vent preventing air form excaping or the shaft if the driver is bent (easy to check, driver should be easy to push back up from down position). Good luck

I have an fc350a nail gun. After firing one time, the piston will not retract until the air hose is removed from the gun.


May need a new firing valve or safety foot is sticking. Easy to check, Remove air supply, nails and remove the trigger to expose the firing pin. Connect air and place the nose of the gun against thick rubber or coiled air hose. Depress trigger and let go. Gun should fire and trigger pin will return to original position. If piston still does not retract then problem is with trigger valve and most likely the rest of the orings within the gun will need replacing. Not expensive. Remove the air supply and look closely at the firing pin, if it moves quite a bit from side to side and looks worn time to replace. If it look to be in good condition, then orings within trigger valve may be swollen and will not allow the trigger to function. You can remove the valve by removing the 3mm roll pins above the valve and applying air pressure to pop out the valve. Use heavy glove to catch the valve because it could come out with force (reduce air pressure to gun if possible). If gun works ok examine safety foot mech for problem. Use silicone paste lube on orings. good luck

The pin that fires the nail sticks and won't retract after firing. You can push it back in after it fires, but that is very time consuming. tried cleaning and oiling to no avail.


please go to paslode.com and take a look at the gun's schematic. you have one of two possible problems. check the compression on the pin's piston( it should have 2 metal rings) put the piston at the top of the chamber and let it go , if it drops by itself you may need new metal rings. the other fix is to replace your reed valve( it kinda looks like a comb with four fat teeth) sitting right under your muffler

Paslode (30 degrees) framing gun firing pin not retracting


The tool needs to be completely torn down, cleaned out, two orings inside need replaced, re-lubed and re-assembled. takes a technician about 1 hour to do it right. I believe either the orings or dirt is your problem. If blade doesn't return its probably the orings.

Brad nailer pin won't retract all the way back after firing tried oil and took apart and cleaned


Make sure that you use a water soluable oil made for air tools--never engine oil. Make sure that a piece of brad has not been lodged behind the nailer pin or that the head of the nailer pin is not 'mushroomed'. Check the condition of the 'return' spring that it is not crushed, warped, or broken. Check the condition of the piston 'O' ring.

Paslode framing nailer when fired pin stays out wont retract


Check the anvil guide for damage first (ie: burrs, nicks, etc.) Then go to the chamber for the return spring. That is where your problems are.

Firing pin not retracting far enough to allow nails forward


Yes,this is a common "mis fire" by Pasilode. I own the 16p Framer and the Angle nailer and I never get it from the Framer but I do get it seldom from Trim Gun,nothing you can do ,its just a misfire.
