Nailer is shooting air out of trigger, is not releasing brad


Sounds like the head valve. Remove the head cap take out the head valve, clean, re-fit and give it a few drops of air line oil. Then give it a try. Good luck.

Bostitch RN46 will not fire nail, only releases air when trigger is held and firing tip is touched to surface of material. Any ideas on what is wrong?


Gun will not fire if air is leaking past orings in head /headvalve or safety /trigger is not pushing trigger pin all the way into trigger valve. Test: Remove trigger to expose trigger valve pin. Remove nails. Place nose of gun against thick rubber mat or coiled rubber hose to absorb blow of driver. Very quickly and deliberately press trigger pin all the way in. If gun fires, safety foo or trigger is not pushing trigger pin all the way in. Make adjustments or replace worn parts. If gun still does not fire, remove head and pull out headvalve. Apply lots of silicone paste lube on the orings and the surface of the head where orings make contact. Reinstall head and test as above. If the gun fires then orings were leaking. Replace orings and sand any scratches on body of cap with very fine sand paper. Parts are at www.toolpartsdirect.com Good luck

My brand new bostich roofing gun froze up after about 1 coil of nails, and will not fire. does it matter that it's 15 degrees outside? What's my problem?


Water in gun or wrong oil for cold temp will cause gun to freeze. Make sure that the compressor is not making water form in hoses due to hot air entering cold hose then freezing in gun. Remove cap of nailer and check for water and lube with light oil that remains liquid in your temp range. If the oil is too thick, the firing valve under trigger and headvalve will not budge. Use very short hose so warm air in tank can reach the nailer (heat is produced when air is compressed, however long hose will allow air to cool before entering gun). Stay warm and good holidays

Air leaks around green cylinder at trigger area and nail plunger will not retract. this is a stanley bostich rn45b nailer


Your nailer uses a trigger valve (part # tva6 cost about $20) and is sold at www.bostitch.com or generic valves sold on ebay . If you have a source for orings, you could try to repair the valve. Remove the roll pin that holds the trigger to expose the tva6 valve. There are roll pin/pins that hold the valve in just above the valve in the body. Remove these pins and apply air pressure to gun to pop-out the valve. Use caution when you do this. Remove nails, lower pressure to gun and use glove or rag to catch valve because it could come out with force. With tva6 valve in hand remove two pins that hold valve together and remove inner plunger. The middle oring on plunger is cause of leak. Try using an oring about same size as the broken seat. It must fit pretty tight to work. If you had a small leak it could be that the firing pin orings fit too loose or just too worn. Use silicone lube or oring lube on the orings and the valve port. Good holidays.

Bostich rn46 . gun will work fine for awhile, then when i pull the trigger, all i get is air coming out of the trigger. i've put a rebuild kit in and i've also put a new trigger assembly in it. didn't...


Assuming that there are no leaks, remove head and pull headvalve. Look for fine scratches where oring contacts head. If there is a deep groove worn into head or scratched, sand with 400 grit paper to restore smooth surface. If badly worn replace head. Reinstall parts using silicone paste (looks like vaseline, sold at lowes in the plumbing department, used for faucet orings) )

Framing gun not firing leaking air aroung trigger


You have a crumbled trigger seal. You can order a new trigger valve through bostitch. It usually takes a couple of weeks though.. Every time I order one it is on backorder. You will need to order trigger valve kit part number TVA11 $21.40. Go to the Bostitch website click on Schematics and Parts to the left then find your model nailer in the search field and select item 53 when the parts list comes up. Click add to cart to order. Another screen will pop up and ask you if you want to checkout. Any questions please post back.
