Have you been oiling the gun ? Make sure it is not hung up. If that is not the problem you may have to purchase a re-build kit.

I just put a repair kit in my sx150 stapler and it fires put will not recoil i think im missing a spring in the bottom of the piston cylinder?


The Bostitch SX150 pneumatic brad nailer/stapler uses air to both drive the brad or staple and to return the driver/piston assembly to the top of the gun for the next firing. There is no spring that goes into the sleeve or under the piston. If your driver is not returning to the top of the gun you may have put an o-ring or seal in the wrong place or left one out. The o-rings and check seal on the bottom half of the driver sleeve are what control the air that returns the piston to the top so check those first.

DRIVER DOES NOT RETURN ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP


What air pressure are you using? Anything under 80psi may not be enough to allow the piston to fully return. 90-110psi is the most common range to operate nailers and staplers. A bent driver can also be hanging up causing it not to return. This is most common on 18 (and some 16) gauge brad/finish nailers since they usually have a pretty thin driver blade.

How to load brads into stanley tre 550 electric staple/brad nail gun


HOW TO USE YOUR ELECTRIC STAPLER/NAILER
TO LOAD STAPLES

1. Unplug tool, (fig. 1)...(place on/off switch in "off" position, (fig. 2).)
2. Place on/off switch in "off' position.
3. Select proper staple length.
4. Use only staples identified by stock numbers on next page. Substitute staples may cause jamming.
5. Hold tool upside down. (Squeeze latch and pull, (fig.3).)
6. Drop staples in channel, legs facing upward. Push latch back in to lock in place, (fig. 4).

TO LOAD BRADS

1. Unplug tool, (fig. 1)...(place on/off switch in "off" position, (fig. 2).)
2. Use only brads identified by stock numbers on next page. Substitute brads will cause jamming.
3. Look for the image of a brad nail on the front side of the tool (fig. 5). Load brads into this side only.
4. Hold tool upside down (Squeeze latch and pull, (fig. 3).)
5. Drop brads into the channel, tilt the tool so the brads lay against the channel wall, (fig. 5).
Push the latch back in watching that the brad strip does not fall over.
6. Use High/Low power when driving brads.


TO STAPLE OR NAIL

1. Make sure the on/off switch is in the "off" position, plug stapling tacker in.
2. Turn tool on by switching to position 1 which is the "on" position and hold firmly against work surface to
engage safety mechanism.
3. Apply adequate pressure on the top of the knob (fig. 6.) while the trigger is pulled.

If you diodn't replace the driver look at it. there might be a burr on it or also one where it slides in and out. Sometimes if it jams a nail or a piece came off of one it will lodge there and cause problems. This has happened to me in the past.

Remove nails and use thin tool to push driver all the way up to top of cylinder. If the gun fires one nail then skips, the driver is not returning to top of cylinder. If no nails fire, then nails are not feeding into proper position. Driver must return to top to allow nails to feed into position. Most common problems are bent driver, worn piston oring and bad batch of nails(head too large). Good luck

The driver doesn't return after firing. it is a porter cable brad nailer BN200


This is pretty common with brad nailers

Remove the brads from your gun - disconnect from the air supply
On the front of your gun is a latch - open it
Check the sliding surface for build up of dirt or small pieces of metal from the brads.
Once clean polish the surface with a fine steel wool or a small brass brush
Reassemble with a drop of machine oil on the sliding surface
Oil your gun as you normally would
Using a piece of soft wood dry fire the gun 10 or so times to ensure that the dents it is making in the wood are all pretty even
Reload and nail something

Driver will not return to rest position,


The plunger or anvil has damage, or your return spring in the chamber is broken. This could also be caused by mechanical issue in the anvil track.

Driver rod does not retract high enough to allow next brad to load into drining position


need to add about 7 drops of oil into the air inlet of the gun. Also, spray some dry, teflon-type lubricant up into the nose of the gun. It' s just dirty

No brad


Your anvil is not returning to the home position to allow the brad to index into the receiver. Try and push the anvil up all the way to the home position. If that works, then you need lubrication, new return spring, etc. All related to the anvil firing.

Porter Cable 18 ga Brad nailer - BN200 Will not reload


Strip and clean the whole diaphragm and spring arrangement. Also check whether a bad nail hasn't damaged the piston guide and caused it to jam when on return stroke.
