    did you check for a jammed nail first? are you using the right guage nails for this tool and the right angle? Give me the model number and I will try and find a breakdown for this and see if I can help.

If the light keeps flashing then the battery is not charged enough to fire the gun. recharge the battery or buy a new one if it continues.

Dewalt 51256 finish nailer, 16 gauge. Shoots two brads at same time. Using Porter 16 gauge brads. Any suggestions


Replace the trigger valve part # 647956-00 to solve this problem. If you have access to very small orings (2mm x 1.5mm), try replacing the two orings on the trigger valve stem. Dewalt uses vinyl orings on the trigger stem and they fail causing malfunction. Easy fix however and not expensive . Good luck

I have a dewalt dc618 finish nailer When I go to shoot the lights on the gun start to flash and will not shoot ?


Continuous flashing indicates low battery charge or poor battery connection. If lights flash 4 or 5 times indicates possible control module fault.

Dewalt dc618 wont fire


firstly its always better to change both of the bands even if one is broken this always keeps the drive trim.all seems well clean all the contacts ie battery and gun (do not use any cleaning products this will cause grease)just wipe clean with paper towel.

When battery gets plugged in lights come on but nailer wont fire


Does the motor run but does not fire a nail? If this is the case chances are the belt came off the flywheel. This is one of the most common problems when these will not fire.
If the headlights go on but the motor does not run it could be a bad switch or contact trip.

This a PDF of the owners manual, Page 9 had some trouble shooting tips. http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/documents/English/Instruction%20Manual/644429-00,DC612.pdf
This is an exploded view of the tool http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/Products/DocumentView.aspx?productid=34790&typeId=9472&documentId=23898
From www,dewaltservicenet.com you can get the contact info for you local Factory Service Center if needed.
For safety remember to always remove the battery when performing any service to this tool.

Nail gun wont fire


First - the air pressure has to be high enough - check the regulator on the tank to make sure it is delivering in excess of 60-70 psi (which I am sure you have already done).

If you have dry fired these guns (i.e. shot them off with no nails in them while you were lubricating them maybe) the mechanism inside could be damaged. I had that happen to one of my nailers (same brand). That was when I learned not to dry fire them...

Since both of them are not working though I would be more inclined to look at the air supply first.

Gun failure


bertobryan45

Have you been lubricating it regularly with nail gun oil. We use framing nailers every day at the commercial tree farm I work at and one of the operating instruction is to put 6 to 8 drops of oil in the air hose connection on the nailer before every use. I suspect the O ring on the piston is worn out/

Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS Please leave a rating if appropriate Thks

if the nailer is for 18 guage nail use 18 gauge nail if not 16 guage will jam. if it is not the problem is the profile return asyy may jam in side.
