It sounds like you have a damaged o ring/seal that requires maintenance. You can go to Dewaltservicenet.com and download a breakdown for this tool and also order parts for it. When reinstalling new o rings don't forget to put a little bit of grease on them so they don't roll or pinch. Let me know if you need more help

Bn125a nailer not sinking nails all the way


The depth to which a fastener is driven is controlled by the depth adjustment

knob (A) Fig. 19 below. The depth of drive is factory adjusted to a nomimal setting.

Test fire a fastener and check depth. If

a change is desired, rotate the

adjustment knob (A) Fig. 19: the

adjustment knob has detents every 1/4

turn. Rotate the knob clockwise (see

Fig. 19), to increase the depth of drive,

rotate the knob counterclockwise to

decrease the depth of drive. Test fire

another fastener and check depth.

Repeat as necessary to achieve

desired results. The amount of air pressure required will vary depending on the

size of the fastener and the material being fastened. Experiment with the air

pressure setting to determine the lowest setting that will consistently perform

the job at hand. Air pressure in excess of that required can cause premature
wear and/or damage to the tool.

How do I adjust the depth of the brad nail on the porter cable BN 125A brad nailer


Hello. To adjust the depth of the nail you have to increase or decrease the air pressure from the compressor. Look at the compressor and you will see a knob or dial that you can turn to increase or decrease the air pressure. Do this adjustment in small increments testing the nailer by driving nails into a scrap of the same material you will be driving the nails into on the actual job. Increasing the pressure will drive the nail deeper and decreasing the pressure will drive the nail less deep. Joe

MY 18GA nailer will fire but it wont fire the nail.


Usual causes:

Driver doesn't move back far enough. Usual cause of this is inadequate lubrication. Load a bunch of air tool oil, say 20 drops and cycle unit repeatedly.

Wrong type nails.

Nails not properly seated in the tray. Check that they can move freely into the slot/path the driver comes down.

Jammed or broken nail in the path. Disassemble and clean out debris.

Broken nail parts up in the area below the piston. Disassemble and clean out debris

Porter cable brad nailer only fires brad on second trigger pull


The dent in the wood is not caused by the air. It's caused by the set that drives the brad. Are you oiling it consistenly? Are the brads the right manufacturer for your porter cable brad nailer? From the information you give it appears that the brads are not advancing correctly or that the air pressure is not sufficient to dislodge the brad from the brad strip on the first strike - it takes an additional strike to break it free. The standard for adding oil is to add ten drops of air tool oil for every hour of operation. That seems like a lot, but the correct amount of oil is a sure way to prevent most air tool problems.

Brad nailer not firing nail...can hear brief air noise upon pulling the trigger


Porter cable makes a number of brad nailers (18 gauge) that very quickly suffer from the problem that you are having. You did not mention the model number of your gun but if it is one of these, (bn125a, bn200a, ns100a) kit # 60061 will fix the problem. It costs between 25 and 30 dollars. Google that part number or order from www.dewalt.com. Dewalt owns the porter cable brand. Before you order the kit, check that the driver blade is not bent and stuck. The driver should travel freely down the cylinder. When you install parts, use Danco silicone grease to lube (availabel at Lowes in the plumbing department) If your model # is different from those mentioned above, please email me and I will recommend a repair.

Bn125 brad nailer is jammed


I've had to remove the plate over the "firing pin" a couple of times (the allen wrenches come with the gun) to release it. Mine was caused by a bent pin, that happened when I hit the hose and knocked it off the bench.

When I finally replaced it (CPO/Porter Cable), it's been fine ever since.

Porter Cable BN125A won't set nails below surface


Not sure about the seal, but I do know the pressure has to stay up for this nailer to be effective. Try oiling the gun to free up the mechanics and don't use old nails.
