3 items to check.
1) Is the battery low, so it does not have enough power to drive the nail?
2) Does it need lubrication, like is there dirt or stuff blocking its action? You might need to blow it out with a high pressure air hose and the lubricate it with a light oil, and
3) Is there a blockage or is something slightly bent somewhere? You know, some nail sets are so poorly made they have tiny extra pieces of nails on the nails in the clip.
Be blessed.

Fires first nail will not fire second nail

Ez test. With nails removed, and door open driver should be at top of cylinder. If driver is down replace piston oring. If driver is up, lightly strike nose of gun against softwood. The driver should stay at top. If driver drops with light tap replace piston oring. If driver stays at top dry fire the nailer against softwood. The driver should hit the softwood leaving a mark and return to top. If driver stays down or does not travel all the way up pull the cylinder and make sure checkband is installed. Checkband is oring or rubber band covering series of holes on lower part of cylinder. Good luck

Nailer wont advance the nails then it shoots blank

Try ez test to check for proper operation. Remove nails and air supply, point nose of gun up then down again. The driver should not move from the top of cylinder position. If driver is moving up then down replace the driver oring. If driver oring seems ok then connect air supply and bump fire the nailer without nails against soft wood and door open so that you can see the driver and feeder moving. Bump fire the gun and make sure that the driver is moving all the way back up to top of cylinder and the feeder is moving rapidly back and forward. If movement seems ok then hold the nose down on soft wood and depress and hold the trigger. This will fire the gun but driver will stay at the bottom position and not return until you release the trigger or lift the gun. When holding the gun with the driver down position, no air should leak out the top or bottom of the gun. If air leaks out bottom, replace lower bumper, if air leaks out the top replace the upper bumper. Good luck

Not locking

I had this problem also with my Maytag Neptune TL. The door lock would click multiple times before displaying the FL code. I was able to fix this by removing the left door look(the one with the door close sensor) and cleaning the 2 metal pones on top of the left door mechanism, which had rusted and no longer was able to since the door closed. I use a nail file i sure either that or sandpaper will do. After that it went through the whole cycle without stopping or displaying the "FL" code.......hope this helps

Inoperable nail gun

replace trigger , sounds like your trigger is keeping the firing valve in the open position allowing air to push the driver down, and exhausting the air out of the top, could also be that the firing valve itself is worn or broken

Cigarette plug does not work

Try plugging something else into the lighter socket,,,if it is getting power then you should suspect the phone charger, if it isnt,,then suspect the fuse,,,just open the fuse box cover and you will find the list and description of all the fuses and their locations there.

D51844 nails jam

The problem that you are experiencing could be caused by several conditions within the gun. Lets work thru the possibilities. First make sure that the nails are correct for the gun. Place a stick of nails on the outside of the magazine with the first nail aligned with the path of the driver. The stick of nails should align perfectly with the path of the driver and also with the magazine. If they do not, don't use the nails. Check with dealer for correct nail. I find that short nails (around 2") will have a tendancy to jamb.
The driver will not travel to top of cylinder if the driver oring/ring is too worn or the driver is bent. The driver should fit snug into the cylinder but be able to travel rather freely . At the bottom of the cylinder check that the bumper is not missing pieces or is cracked. Some nailers have a washer below the bumper that fits snugly around the driver shaft. The bumper and washer prevent too much air from leaking down thru the nose and helps to push the driver back up to top. There is a check valve around the med section of the cylinder that is what actually caused the piston to return to the top with force. You must remove the cylinder to check. Parts are available at There is also a rebuild kit for this gun. Enjoy

Ice maker

remove the front plastic cover on the icemaker and you will see a bunch of little holes make a jumper wire out #10 or 12 house wire strip about 1/4 inch off the ends an insert in the holes marked t&h this will start a test cycle make sure you hold the plastic insulation so you don't get bit if the ice maker starts cycling remove the wire and watch for it to stop listen for the icemaker valve to open if the ice maker finishes and the valve didn’t fill replace the water valves if the icemaker doesnt cycle and you may have to kind of twist the jumper back and forth to get it to make contact depending on the gauge you used then replace the ice maker motor module if you hear the valve open and the ice maker doesnt fill check for a frozen ice fill tube that should do it

Removing front cover

The gray framing around the unit will lift up. You only need to place you finger nail in the notch on the top of the framing in order to gently pry it open. Once you open it up the reset button will be on the right side of the unit.
