2 things to check
1. when was the last time you oiled the gun, without proper lubricant, the driver will not return properly and that will impede fastener feed

2. have you cleaned the nose of the gun? try spraying it with WD40 or some other spay lube after using a spray cleaner, such as B12 carb cleaner or brake cleaner

How do I load my frame nailer


Just pull the pusher back along the magazine all the way until it latches. It should be located on the side of the magazine and looks like something you can grab with your fingers. Then load the nails in through the slot. Pull back on the same pusher until it unlatches and it should slide forward to push the nails toward the head.

My DeWalt D51845 - when you use the sequential trigger it shoots maybe every 4th time you pull the trigger. If you replace the sequential with the bump trigger ever 3rd one shoots 2 nails.


Check this notice and post your question again if you nailer is not part of this recall. Good luck.

if its new warranty it,
otherwise all it should need is a rebuild kit . its just a bunch of orings and gaskets. pretty easy to do. take some pictures as you take it apart to help with reassembly.

Third nail does not go all the wway


Have you checked to make sure the depth adjustment hasn't moved.

If it got banged hard enough it could have moved it and reduced the impact of the nailer

For the Dewalt d51844 can you use PAPER or plastic collated nails


Yes you can generally interchange the two (paper vs plastic collated) as long as the nails meet the specifications (and collated angle) specified by your nail gun.

Problem accessing nails


Hi, No you can't. They are two different feeds. The F33 uses tape feed and the N79 uses stick feed. The N79 is a basic wood frame nailer that uses 3 to 3 1/4 sticks, while the F33 uses up to 2 1/2 paper feed. The stick nails are the most common for the older nailers and on the box look for Bostitch as the brand to fit, as the N79 was sold under that brand not Stanley. This should Fixya!

D51844 Won't Fire Nails


The Dewalt D51844 uses a full round head 20 degree nail. Sometimes the generic brand nails are not made exactly to the stated degree. They do this so their nails will work on a variety of nailers. Best to check the nails angle in relation to the angle of your nailer. Place a strip of nails on the outside of the rail. Align the heads of the nails to a convenient straight edge on the rail then check that the head and shaft of the first nail is aligned with the barrel. If the lower part of the nail projects out further than the head, then the driver will miss the head. If the head of the first nail appears close enough to barrell for the driver to hit it then place a new strip of nails into the mag and slide the pusher foward. Fire one nail, if success, remove the nails from the mag and check if the plastic holding the nails together is projecting in front of the first nail. Sometimes the plastic is not right, too stiff, and will not let the next nail align with the barrell. If the next nail appears ready and slides forward then the driver may not be going all the way up after shot. Check by inserting a metal rod into barrell and push driver up till it stops. If the driver is in the uppermost position, then most likely brand of nails. Use Dewalt nail. Good Luck

D51844 nails jam


The problem that you are experiencing could be caused by several conditions within the gun. Lets work thru the possibilities. First make sure that the nails are correct for the gun. Place a stick of nails on the outside of the magazine with the first nail aligned with the path of the driver. The stick of nails should align perfectly with the path of the driver and also with the magazine. If they do not, don't use the nails. Check with dealer for correct nail. I find that short nails (around 2") will have a tendancy to jamb.
The driver will not travel to top of cylinder if the driver oring/ring is too worn or the driver is bent. The driver should fit snug into the cylinder but be able to travel rather freely . At the bottom of the cylinder check that the bumper is not missing pieces or is cracked. Some nailers have a washer below the bumper that fits snugly around the driver shaft. The bumper and washer prevent too much air from leaking down thru the nose and helps to push the driver back up to top. There is a check valve around the med section of the cylinder that is what actually caused the piston to return to the top with force. You must remove the cylinder to check. Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com. There is also a rebuild kit for this gun. Enjoy
