You have to take the front part of the case off, and you will see the problem. Either the drive belt is broken or the rubber band like springs have broken. Happened to both of mine after about 2 years of use. I ordered the parts through Dewalt and they have some nice diagrams showing the locations and how things go together. Not too hard to do

Hello my dewalt dc618 wont fire its bands and belts are all tries to fire but only when no nails a in it.i think the driver is worn can you help thanks.

I've been using dewalt tools exclusively for 15 years. I've fixed numerous drivers, sawzals, etc. I've learn 3 things over and over again. 1 cleaning & lubing are grossly under rated, 2 if one part goes the rest are not far behind & 3 it has never cost me more than $20 to $30 bucks more to have the repair place rebuild it than to fix it myself. And most times they give you a new bulk packaged tool as a rebuilt. My recommendation: have it rebuilt...enjoy the new tool.

How do I replace the belt on Dewalt cordless dc618?

Remove 2 screws on metal front cover.
Remove screws holding handle halves together and carefully separate (Be careful because trigger spring can fly out on you).
This will expose the belt and allow replacement. There is a spring loaded idler pulley so removal & replacing is easy.

Dewalt dc618

If the motor runs and stays running when you depress the nose then the problem is in either the trigger switch or the solenoid.
If the motor runs for a moment and shuts off with the light blinking I would check your battery. These are very temper mental with voltage, and even if your battery just came off the charger & might work in a drill, it may not have 18v to supply the electronics.
Please note - these are not easy tools to work on, I would recommend bringing it to a qualified repair shop near you.

My DC618 nailer won't fire .

Check the battey then take it out and check the driving rod. On the front of the gun, flip the latch and make sure it is pushed all the way back.
make sure you have nail, of course. put the battery back in. If al that does not work, have it services at a dewalt service center.
