My fn250b has a small tab/lever just below the nail feeder (with no nails in the gun the lever will be just below the nail pusher). Push on the lever with your thumb and the nose will open. This lever is held in place with one screw. If the tab/lever breaks off at the screw or if the screw falls out the lever and its spring will fall off and the front nose will just be loose/ nails will be pushed out. If someone rigged a part to keep the nose closed, you can order the correct parts at www.toolpartsdirect.com. Not really needed however because the gun does not jam that often. Good luck

SOURCE: Porter Cable FN250c wont shoot with every trigger

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 )

Can My FC 350 A used 28 degree nails


The manual for your gun specifies 34-degree nails from 2 to 3 1/2 inches long. 28-degree, wire collated nails are a Stanley-Bostitch thing and they only work in their nail guns, they will not work in your nail gun. You need 34-degree, paper-tape collated nails. I know Senco framing nails will work in your gun and I think Duo-fast makes 34-drgree nails but check that before buying them.

Miss fires and wont sink nails depth set deep and pressure over 120 psi


If no air is leaking from gun, miss-fire is usually caused by worn or too tight piston oring or lack of lubrication. Easy test. Disconnect airline, remove nails, point nose of gun up then down. Driver should stay in uppermost position. If driver moves up then down within gun replace piston oring and retest. Set pressure to about 100psi. Good luck with repair.

Only shoots out one nail for every 4 or 5 trigger pulls


The gun will miss fire if the driver does not return to top position allowing nails to move into position. Could be bent driver, faulty trigger, cracked lower bumper or check valve not in place. Easy to check if trigger. Remove air supply, and remove the pin holding the trigger. Fire the nailer by depressing the firing pin with your finger. If the gun works ok, single fire trigger is faulty or safety foot is out of adjustment. If still miss fire, remove head and pull out cylinder and piston. Check for bent driver, cracked lower bumper or black band (check valve) is out of place on outer part of cylinder covering a row of holes.

I keep reading how my Porter Cable FN250B has a quick release nose to clear jammed nails, but I cannot figure out how to open it.


My fn250b has a small tab/lever just below the nail feeder (with no nails in the gun the lever will be just below the nail pusher). Push on the lever with your thumb and the nose will open. This lever is held in place with one screw. If the tab/lever breaks off at the screw or if the screw falls out the lever and its spring will fall off and the front nose will just be loose/ nails will be pushed out. If someone rigged a part to keep the nose closed, you can order the correct parts at www.toolpartsdirect.com. Not really needed however because the gun does not jam that often. Good luck

Porter cable fc350a frame nailer shoots just air


Could be a couple things, first are you using the right nails in the gun e.g. collation and degree. Second do the nails move freely in the magazine and how is the pusher spring on the nail does it have enough pressure. Then I would unplug from air remove all the nails andjust tap the nose on a piece of wood and does the driver drop? If so the piston Oring is worn and needs replaced, but if you do that I would recommend replacing all the rubber. Let me know and I would need the exact model number to come up with parts.
