My Dewalt 735 planer won't turn on. I blew the house fuse a few times, it would start after I came out. Now it won't start at all and it's been a couple days


The 735 draws 15 amps, which is the rating of typical lighting circuits in homes. The receptical in the wall is sometimes 15 amps although those circuits usually have 20 amp breakers. Since you said "fuse", it might be a bad fuse or even the wiring between the two. Circuit breakers go bad also. If you can confirm the receptical supplies voltage, it is time to check the 735.

Unknown if the device has a termal switch inside. I doubt it would go bad, but you implied a resting period allowed it to run several more times after the fuse in the basement was replaced. If it reset once, it should do it again. If you can find a diagram, there might be a fuse inside, but someone would have to take it apart to check.

A motor can get so hot that a solder joint inside can let loose and it will never run again. Sometimes the coil (windings of the motor) can short out (melt together) and this will increase how much current goes through it and also generate more heat and melt more windings together. Besides producing a smell, your house fuse would burn out real quick.

I had a chuckle over your 2nd sentence but I dare not say why. If it started after you came out (of the house), why did you not run it for a longer time?

A motor requires more power at the instant of turn on. 15 amps of running current will require 20 amps or more when starting. "slow blow" fuses (vs quick action) and circuit breakers can deal with the short period over current requirements.

Dewalt dc618


If the motor runs and stays running when you depress the nose then the problem is in either the trigger switch or the solenoid.
If the motor runs for a moment and shuts off with the light blinking I would check your battery. These are very temper mental with voltage, and even if your battery just came off the charger & might work in a drill, it may not have 18v to supply the electronics.
Please note - these are not easy tools to work on, I would recommend bringing it to a qualified repair shop near you.

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 miter saw not running at full speed


Problem will be either low brush lengths or burnt armature. Check for arcing when running and excessive sparking will mean motor over haul or replacement.

My brand new DC608 18 gauge nailer jams every time on the 2nd nail.


Per your addendum I would have first told you to check that you are using the proper guage nails. Second you should make sure you are loading the nails in the lowest channel in the magazine so they are at the bottom of the magazine. If you load them into the top of the magazine they have more time to go off course before they get into the wood.

I have a DC608 cordless nailer that will not fire the driver the driver does not move at all but everything else seems to be functioning properly Thanks Tim


Hi,

You can go to this webpage and download the owner's manual which gives instructions: http://servicenet.dewalt.com/Products/Detail?productNumber=DC608K
You can also download a parts diagram and order parts here.

I looked through the manual and found that DeWalt's Brad Nailer does not require tools to remove jammed nails from the nose piece. I believe this is the problem with your nailer, unless it's empty. Some of these nailers will not fire if there's less than 6 nails in them.
Another feature on this nailer is the trip lock. It is a safety feature that prevents accidental firing. Any time you adjustments made to the nailer will automatically turn the trip lock to lock position. You'll find this lock on the right side, under the Dewalt label.

The instruction manual will explain all this.

Hope this helps. If it does, I would appreciate a vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

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.

Porter cable roofing gun


The problem that you describe could be caused by three things. First remove the cylinder and look for a black rubber band around the cylinder about med section. There is an indention with holes where it is supposed to be. The band should fit snuggly so that it does not slip off during use. Secondly, check that the piston oring/plastic ring holds the piston in the cylinder without just dropping under its own weight. Third, the upper bumper could have a crack or missing piece. Remove it and check. (vinyl part in headvalve) Parts are available at dewalt repair center or www.toolpartsdirect.com. enjoy
