Generally, if your nailer is not leaking air, the orings are probably ok. Remove the head and check for stuck headvalve or stuck driver/piston. Make sure that you can press the headvalve into the head with your thumb and that it returns. If your driver/piston is down when you pull the head, remove the cylinder and check for damage to it or the bumper. Some cylinders have an oring or strip of rubber about med section which acts as a check valve causing the piston to return to top. Check for bent driver or broken tip causing driver to jamb. Use silicone lube to assemble. Enjoy

What you can do is go to the Sears.com website and under tools it will lead you to Sears Parts Direct and (bottom of page) when you get there there is a block for manuals type in the model number and you can view it online or get one. Hope this helps Dave

SOURCE: D51844 Won't Fire Nails
The Dewalt D51844 uses a full round head 20 degree nail. Sometimes the generic brand nails are not made exactly to the stated degree. They do this so their nails will work on a variety of nailers. Best to check the nails angle in relation to the angle of your nailer. Place a strip of nails on the outside of the rail. Align the heads of the nails to a convenient straight edge on the rail then check that the head and shaft of the first nail is aligned with the barrel. If the lower part of the nail projects out further than the head, then the driver will miss the head. If the head of the first nail appears close enough to barrell for the driver to hit it then place a new strip of nails into the mag and slide the pusher foward. Fire one nail, if success, remove the nails from the mag and check if the plastic holding the nails together is projecting in front of the first nail. Sometimes the plastic is not right, too stiff, and will not let the next nail align with the barrell. If the next nail appears ready and slides forward then the driver may not be going all the way up after shot. Check by inserting a metal rod into barrell and push driver up till it stops. If the driver is in the uppermost position, then most likely brand of nails. Use Dewalt nail. Good Luck

Look for a jam in the gun.Sounds like a brad is "hung up" in it, probably right at point where it feeds into the mouth of the firing point. Be sure you unplug it before you do this.
