On some models the contact fire is not available. There is a flap that is under the actual trigger. When you press the safety in, it engages this little flap which allows the trigger to be engaged. As soon as the safety comes up this little flap falls back down disengaging the trigger.

There is an optional trigger assembly that you can put on this nailer. You need parts 174299 and 174300 to make this gun a contact nailer.

Why does it fire two nails constantly?


what do you mean fires two at one time or two like bam bam.? different things all together. two at one time is the nose piece and normally occurs on coil nailers when they wear out. If its bam bam then, yout trigger is black and its called a contact tip trigger, meaning as long as the safety is pressed down and the trigger is held it will fire. But common problem is when people use a gun and put it on the board and pull the trigger. Like any gun there is a " kick" the kick is the operation of air going through the gun hitting the piston which is attached to the driver, pushing the nail into the board, ( a lot of energy directed straight down) pushing the gun up. and the trigger while released actually is making you pull it twice. So, as a tech I teach new people that there is a sequential trigger that does not do that or if your good with your aim try holding the trigger and tapping the board a single time.
but long and short of it, nose worn ( pricey) or trigger

DOESN'T FEED,IT MIGHT MISS SHOOT A TIME OR TWO THEN GET A NAIL THEN NOT FEED.I'M SHOOTING A 1.5"TECO NAIL. ANOTHER GUN DOESN'T SHOOT EVERY TIME LIKE THE DEPRESSOR ISN'T LETTING THE...


Usually miss feed happens when the driver does not return to top position not allowing the nails to feed into position. Easy to check, point nose of nailer up then down again to see if the driver is loose in the cylinder. If loose, the driver will be in the down position when the side door is opened. If driver is down, replace driver oring. If driver oring is good, look for spring tension on feeder and check feeder spring on the door side. If piston oring good and feeders have good spring tension, suspect lower bumper cracked(remove head and piston to check bumper).
On gun with depressor (safty foot) not actuating trigger, look for worn trigger (trigger inner lever could be worn) or loose or worn firing pin in the trigger valve above the trigger(valve # tva6). Replace as needed. To check for proper gun action, remove the nails, remove the 3mm roll pin holding trigger and dry fire the gun by depressing the tigger pin. Good luck

Porter Cable FN250c wont shoot with every trigger pull. sometimes it shoots correctly (10% of the time), other times it just pops (no nail) and other times it shoots two nails at once. Also when it...


Worn trigger and or worn firing valve. Remove the trigger and look for wear on contact surfaces (worn pin that holds trigger, worn inner lever inside trigger, worn or loose firing pin in valve ). Easy test for worn trigger. Remove the nails, remove trigger, fire the gun against wood with finger to test for proper action. If it works better without trigger, consider replacing trigger with new (I would also order the oring repair kit that includes the firing valve )

Gun will not shoot nails completely;no matter what wood,thickness,etc.they drive all but 1/2"


May be due to broken tip. Easy to check. Remove nails and leave door open. With door open, lightly tap the nose of the gun against coiled rubber hose or soft wood. The driver should stay at top position. If driver falls to bottom of the cylinder, replace piston oring. Now press nose of the gun against old coiled up air hose or soft wood and squeeze and hold trigger. The gun will fire and the driver should stay in the down position untill you release the trigger (if not single fire trigger, if single fire trigger remove trigger and press the trigger pin with finger). While the driver is down, make sure that the tip extends past the nose about 1/4 inch (if air leaks past the nose in this position, replace lower bumper). If the driver does not extend past the nose, replace driver. Good luck

Senco 601 nailer shoots 2 nails each time the trigger is pulled.


the 601 had a design flaw, in the nose, where the nails hit as the are being pushed forward, the peice was made out of a peice of metal that was too soft, it wore down and that is where you get the double nail problem.

Senco offered a trade in, this was years ago, for a limited time and gave us credit towards new guns, which we gladly did

I have a hitachi nv 65 ah that will shoot two nails at time


I hope this doesn't offend you. What I'm suggesting is that you may not be using your nail gun correctly. Some people keep the trigger pulled and bounce the gun onto the wood. This technique works okay, but placement accuracy of the nail suffers. The other technique is to place the gun on the wood and pull the trigger USING TWO HANDS! This is the technique suggested by the manufacturer. The problem with this technique is that if you apply insufficient pressure to the gun (USING ONE HAND) the safety is not engage so you don't shoot a nail. What usually happens - I just witnessed this a couple of weeks ago - is that not enough pressure is applied while pulling the trigger so you push harder and end up bumping the gun which shoots a nail - because you have the trigger pulled, but the nail shot was a surprise so it causes another bump (and is more apt to bounce because you're using just one hand). Because it is a machine and can operate faster than your reflexes - it shoots another nail. This happens before you can lift it off of the wood, or remove your finger from the trigger. That's the reason I keep the trigger pulled and bounce it. I know that after the bounce I've set a nail, and can remove my finger from the trigger. When I need to accurately set a nail I always use two hands, press hard and pull the trigger, and release quickly. Only pull the trigger when you know you're about to set a nail, and are poised above the workpiece.

What are my trigger options


The best way to soot 1 nail at a time out of a pneumatic roof nailer is to bounce fire it. Hold down the trigger and lat the safety fire the nailer as you bounce it against the roof.
