The air leak can be one of a few things. FIrst make sure that you have added some pneumatic oil to the air stream. This will lubricate the o-rings and make a tight seal. If that fails to resolve it, repalce the o-rings. (kits available for around $20). Next, woul dbe the trigger assembly itself. These triggers wear over time and are easily replaced.

See the website below for parts and a good diagram of the construction of the gun. You should be able to replace the parts by following the diagrams.

Please note that the exactmodel number is required to get hte correct diagram.

Hope this helps,
Dan

Bostitch just blows air when trigger is pulled


Air leaking from trigger when attempting to fire the gun is normal and should cause nailer to fire, however if the trigger pin is not depressed all the way in,the gun may not respond. Easy test. Remove the nails and remove the trigger. Connect the gun to air and quickly depress the valve pin all the way in with finger. If the gun fires, adjust the safety foot so that the trigger pin is depressed all the way in. If the gun still does not fire, then remove the head cap and pull out the headvalve. Apply plenty of white grease to orings and retest. If the gun fires, then replace the headvalve orings. When the headvalve orings are worn, air will leak from bulkhead chamber to the headvalve chamber causing the gun to not respond to the trigger. The addition of grease to worn orings will make them temporarily seal. Good luck

I have a Bostitch N80S stick framing nailer that leaks air from the trigger area. I replaced the entire trigger valve with a new single fire trigger to see if the old bump fire trigger was the problem


Remove the nails and take off the trigger to expose the trigger valve (usually part # tva6). Connect air and spray soapy water on the valve to determine if the air is leaking from the center of the valve or around the outer edge between the body and valve. If leaking from the center, could be defective valve or debris under oring. Pop out the valve and examine internal parts for cut oring or defect. If leaking from between body, you could have cut orings installing the valve. Make sure that there are no rough edges in the body of the gun. Bump fire or single fire happens with the trigger type not the valve. Bump fire trigger is usually black metal and single fire trigger is light color plastic. Good luck

Trigger problems


I have repaird hundreds of nail guns with a problem similar to yours. Depending on the brand and model, the problem can be repaired by checking the following. Headvalve orings should be checked for wear and any surface that the orings contact must be smooth and free from scratches. If the surfaces are scratched try to smooth with fine sandpaper and use light grease instead of oil when assembling. The safety contact foot may not be reaching high enough into the trigger to properly push in the trigger button. Check for worn spots on the trigger that may be filled in with epoxy, loose fitting trigger caused by worn roll pin or retaining pin. Some of the trigger valves as used on many bostitch nailers (tva6 valve) used a plastic pin which contacts the trigger. If this pin is loose or worn the valve should be replaced. Some tva6 valves have a vinyl looking sort of oring that fits too loose on the spool. This vinyl oring in not available by itself but if the oring fits too loose the gun will not fire and leak air. On bostitch remove the trigger and the rollpins holding the trigger valve and apply air to gun to eject valve. (use heavy glove to catch valve as it will come out with force)
