Gun is only a few yrs old and has had moderate use. Problem is that when depressing the nose piece I get a hissing of air and it will not fire. It will sometimes fire but after a few nails it just hisses air.

Your o-rings are wore out. Paslode makes(made) a Tool Repair Kit, PN219235 and Trigger Valve Kit, PN219224 for your gun. Always use all of the o-rings in the kit and liberally lubricate them before installing them using grease in the kit or nail gun oil. If the kits are no longer available you'll have to get a breakdown of the gun, (www.paslode.com/uploadedFiles/PowerMaster_Plus_Parts_Diagram_Schematics.pdf) and order all of the o-rings. Be very carefull to put everythng back together properly, you are working with a gun.

I dropped my SN70 on the nose and ever since then it will not fire. It hisses from the trigger when it is pulled.


The firing pin must be depressed all the way in by the safety foot in order for the gun to fire. It will work again after you adjust the safety. To test the gun, remove the trigger, and the nails and very quickly depress the trigger pin all the way in. Good luck

I have a hitachi nr90ae that will not fire. Depress nose and trigger and gets nothing. What's next?


Remove nails and air supply. Firmly depress safety foot against work with trigger depressed and make sure that firing pin is pushed all the way in. If firing pin is being activated by safety foot most likely problem is stuck cylinder or head valve. If the gun has been dropped the cylinder my jam. Remove the head and make sure that the cylinder and or headvalve moves and that the driver is not stuck in place. Good luck

Hitachi NR83AA shoots two nails on one pull of the trigger?


Best practice is to bump fire the gun to prevent double fire. Do not place the gun on the work and pull the trigger. This takes practice while using at an angle. Works better if the nose piece has rather sharp points to help nose to stay in postion while you bump. With trigger depressed, practice without nails bumping/hitting wood at different angles untill you can bump hit at the spot that you need the fastener. If the gun double fires while bump-firing, most likely all the safety/trip parts are worn/loose. Not expensive to replace. Good luck.

NEW BRAD NAILER ONCE LOADED WILL NOT WORK


Many modern brad and finish nails use a sequential fire trigger system. You have to push the nose of the tool down to depress the safety THEN pull the trigger. This is the opposite of how a bottom fire works where you hold the trigger and bump the nose to fire the gun.

Gun will not shoot nails completely;no matter what wood,thickness,etc.they drive all but 1/2"


May be due to broken tip. Easy to check. Remove nails and leave door open. With door open, lightly tap the nose of the gun against coiled rubber hose or soft wood. The driver should stay at top position. If driver falls to bottom of the cylinder, replace piston oring. Now press nose of the gun against old coiled up air hose or soft wood and squeeze and hold trigger. The gun will fire and the driver should stay in the down position untill you release the trigger (if not single fire trigger, if single fire trigger remove trigger and press the trigger pin with finger). While the driver is down, make sure that the tip extends past the nose about 1/4 inch (if air leaks past the nose in this position, replace lower bumper). If the driver does not extend past the nose, replace driver. Good luck

Remove the nails and air supply. With side door open notice position of driver. Driver should be at top position with tip not visible. If driver is down and it moves within cylinder when you tilt nose up then down again, time to replace orings. If driver is down, it should extend past the nose about 1/4 inch (if driver is broken at the tip the end will look rough and nail will not drive in all the way). If driver extends past the nose more than 1/4 inch then lower bumper may be breaking up /cracked. Easy test for proper function. With nails removed and side door open, connect air to gun and dry fire gun against hard rubber or old coiled air-hose (with air connected and trigger depressed, no air should leak from trigger area, if air leaks when trigger is depressed, look for fault at trigger pin). Feeder should move back then forward in quick motion almost matching speed of driver and driver should not creep down between shots. No air should leak from nose of the gun (push nose against hard rubber and depress trigger and hold in this position, driver should stay down with very little or no air leaking out of nose, when you release trigger, driver will return). If air leaks out of nose while holding in this position, replace lower bumper. If a quantity of air leaks from valve in front of trigger, cylinder orings may need replacing or outer part of cylinder has fine scratches (remove scratches with 400 grit paper).

Open side door of nailer and dry fire the gun against rubber very rapidly, look at the feeder, it should move back and forward very rapidly. If it appears to move slowly check orings to feed piston and white oring between the body of gun and nose (remove the two screws into nose of gun). Sometimes pieces of the lower bumper will become lodged in air path to feed piston. Good luck

Paslode framer when you depress trigger there no resistance and it does not fire


Paslode framer has a lever inside of trigger that may be bent or missing. Easy to check. Remove air line and nails. Remove trigger by pulling pin. Check under trigger for missing parts. Test gun by connecting to air and place nose of gun against wood or hard rubber and then depress firing pin. If gun fires then problem is with lever under trigger or safety mechanism which is in two parts. Check safety for bent or broken piece, usually upper part will be missing lip that actually pushes on the lever. If however gun does not fire when firing pin is depressed, time for replacing orings in gun. Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com . Good luck with your repair and post again if you have other questions.

that is the safety that you are pushing up
apparantly the safety is not going far enough up to disengage.

there should be an adjustment know near the trigger or nose to adjust the safety out further, therefore making proper contact

Senco staple fastener not firing.


Make sure you actually removed the entire broken staple and there's not a piece still wedged up in there somehow.
Try raising the air pressure up to 125 psi and plug it in and unplug it a few times. Sometimes the piston can get jammed, and a smack with the palm of your hand on the side of the cylinder will jar it loose. If that doesn't work, try pulling the trigger as you jam the nose of the gun against a soft piece of 2x4 or something, repeatedly firing and jarring the tool. If this doesn't do it, you may have to open it up to clear the jam and put it back together.
