It sounds to me like the spring within the magazine is not functioning properly. WIth brad nailers, it is that tension that places the nail into the proper position for firing. This may be as simple as cleaning the loading area and slightly lubricating it. WIthout seeing the actual gun, I cannot tell you for sure. If you are not sure of this, look for a professional tool repair shop in your area. They will be listed under industrial tool repair.

Possibly, I would make sure that you are using the right guage nails first with the proper collation. You can go to Dewaltservicenet.com and download a breakdown for the tool and also a users manual.

My pneumatic nailer


ok, so your nails are correct size gauge, and the right length too?? sometimes when shooting at 120psi into pine the nail is blown through the material. test it on something first something thinner that you can see if its working at all, or put in like 5 nails and see after you shoot if you still have 5 nails in the magazine.
if so make sure, nothing is obstructing the magazine chute to the driver, also make sure the nails are in the correct slot for them to be struck. keep me posted.

How do I fix a pneumatic finish nailer that won't feed nails from the magazine


Does the tool stop firing at about the same point on the magazine every time? It could be there's either some blockage that you can't see in the mag or, that the mag has worn down. If the latter is the case, replace the magazine frame.

Bostich n66 nailer


Does the nailer fire but just not drive a nail, or does it not fire at all? If it's the first situation, it's a magazine feed issue. I had one of those and it started doing something very similar. The magazine spring had gotten dirty from use which didn't allow it to function properly. (Carefully) disassemble the magazine and clean the spring. Automotive brake cleaner works pretty good for that. Spray the guides with a dry lubricant then reassemble. If it's the second situation, I can't help you there.

My brand new DC608 18 gauge nailer jams every time on the 2nd nail.


Per your addendum I would have first told you to check that you are using the proper guage nails. Second you should make sure you are loading the nails in the lowest channel in the magazine so they are at the bottom of the magazine. If you load them into the top of the magazine they have more time to go off course before they get into the wood.

I can get he gun to shoot 1 nail but won't load the next nail?


There is a small piston on the side of the magazine that pushes the feeding claw which pushes the next nail into place. Either the feeding claw or piston is stuck or the piston is worn out and needs to be replaced.

Not sure how to load nails into magazine


Generally two reasons for nails not to make contact with driver. Make sure that the driver is returning to top of cylinder. If it stays in the path of the nail feeder, the nail cannot slide into position. Second, nails are not the right type or gauge for gun. Some nails even if they are the right gauge have a large head not allowing the strip to enter into chamber. Remove air hose from gun, check that piston is all the way up, then slide nails into chamber and see if they go all the way in easily with-out having to push. You should see the first nail in place from bottom where nail shoots out. The angle of the nail is very important. most pin nailers are 0 degree (not angled), but others have an angle. The gun should be labeled as to angle of nail. Hold a strip of nails against the outside of the magazine and see is the first nail is in line with the driver path. Good luck and post again if you have other question.

SENCO COIL ROOFING GUN DOESNT ADVANCE NAILS EVERY THRID OR FOURTH NAIL DOESNT ADVANCE


Clean the track and piston by removing nail tray (there are a couple of allen screws)and removing the gunk from the nail tape and if you have been shooting something glued that to. Remove head assembly and thoroughly clean and oil that also. that should fix you right up I have a couple of these guns and that is typical.
If that is no the problem rebuild the gun it is worth it as they are a great air gun
Hope this helped
