I would look at the deeder area which is close to the plunger. If not properly oiled, it will jam up like this. See the link below and enter the model number (R175RND) to get the complete parts breakdown diagram. That should help you to open up the unit and check it out. Also examine any O-rings for signs of wear.

Whats the difference between a roofing nail gun and an ordinary nail gun ?


A roofing nail is designed to be easier to be removed, they have a smooth shank and wide head that hold down shingles. A siding nail has a ring shank. A roofing nailer is used to quickly pin down shingles across a roof, the depth at which they are drive in is generally shallower than a siding nail.
You can read a little more about roofing nailers here Best Roofing Nailer Shooting From the Hip Woodworking Tool Guide.

I have a prime air roofing nailer...it will shoot one nail wont shoot any more til i open an push nails into position


It sounds like the auto feed is jammed. It just might be some dirt holding the slide from advancing or it could be a broken feed spring.

Jam


I have noticed that some if not all brands are now using metal wire instead of copper to make coils. Metal wire is stiffer and does not bent down out of the path of the driver. If you are using coils welded together with metal wire (some wire looks copper collored, however when tested with magnet is found to be metal), and after firing a few nails, open side door and check if the leading wire is not bending down. Leading wire will not allow the nail the fully move into the path of the driver. Stiff wire will also cause the next nail in line to pull down slightly. When nail is pulled down slightly, it will be out of the path of the driver. The driver will hit the edge of the nail and cause it to flip. The nails can also flip if the feeder is not pushing the nails fully forward due to low pressure or weak spring or springs (some nailers have a spring pushing feed piston others use air). Finally, the feed piston or the body of the nailer where the feed piston is housed could be worn. With feed piston in forward position (normal) and the feeder claw removed, apply outword pressure to feeder with thumb checking for loose fit. The feeder shaft should not be loose nor move from side to side with thumb pressure. If shaft is loose then most likey lower body of gun worn with no repair. Good luck with you nailer.

My ridgid r213bna nail gun won't fire a nail, but has good pressure & no jam...


If a gun is firing and nails are not being driven into the work it's because of one of two problems. The nails aren't feeding fully under the driver or the driver isn't fully retracting each time the gun is activated. Is looks like you've eliminated a feed problem so you are going to have to take the gun apart to find out why air is not being held in the bottom of the head long enough to push the driver back up the cylinder. Go to www.ereplacementparts.com and bring up your model so you can follow along. Remove the four screws holding the head cap on. The things that can cause your problem are: the piston seal & o-rnig are damaged, the cylinder is badly scored, the o-ring & cylinder ring on the bottom half ot the cylinder are damaged or out of place, or the driver guide under the bumper is broke or missing. If it turns out internal parts are damaged or missing, I highly recommend the overhaul kit to replace all the 'soft' parts inside the gun as long as you have it apart.

Why does my roofing nail gun jamming, it would fire one nail and the hammer will remain out, so i toke a screw driver and push the hammer back in, and it still did the same thing


Simple test for piston jam. With nails removed and latch open, point nose of gun up then down. If the driver slides up and down in the cylinder as you move the gun, replace the piston oring (test gun for proper operation). If the piston stays in the upper most position as you move gun (push driver to top position), check lower bumper and bottom seal under the bumper (sheet). Replace as needed. If the lower parts are in good condition (good piston oring, lower bumper and sheet) , replace the 3 orings on the feeder piston. Good luck

Shoots two nails at a time, gun jams


I found the solution to the double shooting happens when the retainer ring on the feeder paw inside half of the coil nail holder. Part #92 (962112-6) retainer ring R-22. I found the clips broken in two of my guns. Now they work great.

Plunger want retract


The hammer could just need to be oiled or you could have blown a seal in the gun which is not expensive to fix around 20.00 . A lot of times when my gun jams on a nail it gets stuck so the hammer won't go down. I just use something thin that will fit on the hammer and take a hammer and just tap it back into place.

Feeding nails


Your nailer shares design features with Milwaukee and Ridgid. All three brands experience the same issue. Lets go thru a series of simple tests to determine the problem. First and most simple test, manually load the nails and fire the gun untill miss-fire. Upon mis-fire disconnect air, open latch and check if the driver is all the way up into the cylinder or is partially down blocking next nail. If driver is down blocking next nail, replace the driver oring and retest. If driver is up all the way, remove nails, reconnect airline, leave latch open and fire gun against rubber (old tire or coiled up waterhose/airhose) this time holding the gun down and keeping the trigger depressed. In this position, the driver will remain down and feeder will remain retracted. With feeder retracted and screwdriver in hand carefully check the spring tension on the feeder (should be rather firm tension on spring and the feeder must retract with good force). If no tension or weak, replace feed spring. When you finally release the trigger, the driver will retract and the feeder should return with good force. If feeder does not return with force, replace orings and spring behind feed piston. If all tests are ok, remove head, check lower bumper in gun for cracks or missing pieces. Replace as necessary. Lube all orings with silicone lube available at Lowes in the plumbing department. (Danco brand) Good luck on your repair and email your questions.
