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.

My bostitch 201 manual floor nailer is stuck with cylinder in the down position. Brand new refurbished, about 50 2" cleats driven without a problem, then some sort of misfire resulting in the stuck...


Could be bent driver or debris. Easy to check. Remove air supply and nails. Remove the four bolts holding bottom of nailer together. Make note of how the pieces are assembled. Set bottom parts to side move piston in and out of the cylinder. Should be fairly easy to move but should not drop out of cylinder of its own weight. Next insert driver into nose to check for smooth fit. Bent driver should be obvious and can be straightened. If driver looks good, find and remove debris from nose of gun. Good luck with your flooring projects Order spare parts kit to have on hand because drivers will break and bend and the lower bumper will begin to break-up.

Problem: Nail jam due to improper degree of nails Question: How do I take apart the nail gun so as to get the jammed nails out?


Try removing stuck nails without taking apart gun. Remove remaining nails from rails. Use long piece of allen wrench or similar hard steel and grind the end to allow for jamed nail (I use a broken driver blade ground slightly thinner to allow for stuck nail). Use heavy brass or copper hammer to push driver up to top of cylinder. If after a couple of heavy blows the driver does not move, remove the head of the gun and pull out the cylinder and place the body of the gun on plywood. This will protect the head from damage. Good luck

Jammed nail gun fc350a


Nail guns will jam when driving nails thru very hard wood, solid objects, allowing the gun to double fire hitting the first nail or using the wrong nails(amoung some of the reasons, you get the idea that jamming is common) . There is no special tool to help in case of jam. You must be creative. I use an old driver shaft from nailer that easily fits into the nose of the gun (you can grind a piece of allen wrench to fit into nose and allow space for the stuck nail). The metel that you use must be very hard and strike with heavy copper or brass hammer (caution, steel hammer may splinter metal, use protective gear ). You will need to strike very hard to remove some stuck nails. If first or second strike results in no movement of driver, remove the head and cylinder of the nailer and place the body of the gun squarely on piece of plywood over concete floor (this will protect the head of the nailer from being damaged). Worst case, you will need to remove the rails. Good luck.

Nail is jammed in my porter cable fcn200 cleat nailer --how do I get it out?


Hi,

It looks like those guns have a problem with driving the last few nails... so don't let them go all the way down before refilling...

There also should be a tool included to relase the nose so the jamm can be cleared...

Checkout the reviews here there is a ton of helpful info there...

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.

What is the correct way to place the nails into the gun? This gun uses both cleats and staples. I am using cleats but it does not seem to be working. I may be putting the cleats in wrong.


If you have a Bostitch MIII FN it is only for cleats. Bostitch doesn't make a universal nailer that takes staples and cleats. The MIIIFN is the "floor nailer" and the Model MIIIFS is the "floor stapler"
Maybe check exactly what model you have and ensure you are not trying to put cleats into a stapler.

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.
