SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: dewalt corless nailer lost power while puting nails in wood, he is working but does not have power to go all the way in the wood

Have you been keeping the gun properly lubricated? In the high dust atmosphere of the workplace it needs cleaned & lubed frequently.

I have a Dewalt dnc692 dual speed nailer.How do you change the speed


Above the battery compartment you should see a switch that gives you the choice of firing nails from 50mm to 70mm or from 71mm to 90mm. That is the speed switch. For firing nails 50 - 70mm the motor speed is reduced so that there is not too much force driving these shorter nails deep in the wood and allowing the driver blade to get stuck in the wood with the possibility of bending it or snapping it. If you tried to fire a 90mm nail on this setting you will find it does not drive fully in and you may get the indication of a jam.

"Hauser", eh? Campbell Hausfeld may be the brand you are referring to, unless you bought a really cheap knockoff of a really cheap product (or just can't bother to spell)

Nails only partly firing in


First make sure you are using the correct nails as far as gauge and angle. These are complicated tools and you may want to take it to a DeWalt service center for repairs. Here is a diagram for you if you don't have one.

Nail gun 58-8434-4 will not drive 3" nails all the


Hi foxden503,

Welcome to fixya!

As a general rule, framing nailers use anywhere from 45 to 120 psi to drive nails. But this also depends on the hardness of the wood.
The nail head should be flush with the surface. If it sticks above the wood, increase the pressure a little bit at a time until you achieve this goal.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

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
