Hello
It is possible that a wire came off and touches connector when turned up. The trigger itself may also be bad and needs to be replaced.
 However, the first thing I would do would be to replace the brushes. They may be worn or broken and break contact when you face it downwards. If that doesn't fix it then replace trigger switch.

I hope this helps you.

My bostitch n88rh framing nailer will fire when pointed down but wont fire pointed horizontal.


Nailers are made to use in any position so must be something simple to fix. Most likely safety contact foot, to test, remove the nails, remove the trigger to expose the firing button on the trigger valve. Connect air and dry fire onto wood or old coiled rubber hose in various positions. If the gun tests ok then carefully examine safety foot mech. and trigger for loose components missing guide or roll pin. The contact foot must push firmly up on the lever within the trigger thus pushing on the firing button. If the safety foot and trigger are in good conditon and working ok, then problem is within the headvalve and piston orings. To test piston oring, remove airline and nails, point nailer up then down again. The piston should stay in the top position. If the piston moves up /down with movement of gun, replace piston oring. If piston oring ok, remove the head and pull out the headvalve. Apply plenty of silicone paste or white grease to orings on headvalve and reinstall and test. If tests ok, then problem is worn orings in the head /headvalve. You can keep lubing or replace orings. Examine the surface within the head where headvalve orings make contact. If there are many fine scratches, even new orings will not work very well. Try to remove scratches with very fine sandpaper. 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 )

I have 2 dewalt 18 volt hammer drills. The first one died about 2 years ago. The trigger seemed to mess up. I took it apart several times thinking I could fix it. I finally gave up on it. It's laid...


Hi, Take the drill apart using a star driver. When taking the chuck assembly from the yellow section have the drill chuch down to stop bits falling out. Once handle is apart popout the triggger assembly. Remove the two power leads from the assembly. Try a direct connection to the battery (polarity doesn't matter. If the motor goes it means that the trigger is U/S. Put a tester across the terminals (either set). You may have a short (as I had). It appears to me that the trigger is not user servicable. I used one from a DeWalt recip saw with a mod on the reverse lever. Works well.

Good luck.

As I try to fire the gun, I just get a small thump of air and no nail fires This gun is 2 years old and worked perfectly when I put it away last spring.


Problem you describe is typical of stuck driver or firing valve. Easy to check; remove head and make sure piston moves down cylinder (upon removing head, piston should be at top). Your gun utilizes sliding cylinder instead of moving valve in head. When you pull the trigger the cylinder moves down allowing air pressure to drive piston down. Orings swell overtime which prevents the cylinder from moving/firing. If cylinder does not move down/up, may be time for rebuild kit. Parts are available at dewalt service center or can be ordered from www.toolpartsdirect.com. Good luck

Must pull the trigger every time to shoot a nail, should be able to hold trigger and tap where i want the nail.


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.

FIRES MULTIPLE NAILS WHEN AIR IS HOOKED UP.


Your trigger plunger is not seating to close off the air. Then your safety interlock is also not working properly. Needs a rebuild of all pertinant parts associated with the firing. There is a vlve in the the body that works in conjunction with the safety interlock and the trigger.

Re: Burned trigger switch: call the number on the drill (800.590.3723) and tell them what happened. They will offer to send you a new switch or have you send the drill in for replacement of the switch--although the person I talked with said they would probably just replace the whole drill.
