Yes, disconnect the air, then disassemble the front part of the gun. this area commonly has jamb issues, nowdays they are quick release, for clearing access.

How do I unjam a porter cable BN200SB nail gun

I suggest that you make sure that there is no air he tool so, remove the air supply. Then if you remove the cover from the nose (Making sure that you also take out all the unused nails first) it should allow access to the front nose plate. If you remove this, it will allow you to carefully remove the nail. While you're at it, check that the driver blade tip doesn't have any burring or damage to it. If so, you might need to fettle it back into shape or, replace it?

Nails skipping

Usually caused by debris in the small air passage from inside of gun to feeder piston. Easy to check. Remove the head and pull out the cylinder. Debris in the chamber is usually small pieces of oring or the lower bumper is coming apart. This debris will enter passage to feeder which is visible at bottom of chamber. If debris is found, clean chamber, passage, and feeder chamber. Debris will lodge on the oring between the body and nose. Clean and replace parts as needed. If the gun was found to be clean inside, suspect weak or missing feeder spring/s. Good luck/

Nail gun won't discharge a nail

Open the front and see if the nails are feeding through. If the piston is down push it up, close the front and try again.

I have a Max cn70 nail gun. When trying to fire the gun, air seeps from the trigger assembly and will not fire. Help!

Hello, sounds like a nail is jammed in the chamber. Happens frequently. What you do first is disconnect the gun and empty any nails. Then, with a screwdriver or a big nail hit the ram driver back down . Reconnect and test by depressing safety latch and pulling trigger. Repeat. Hope this helps. -ROB

Paslode nail guns won't shoot

piston is probably jammed

This happens sometimes try holding it up against a board with the trigger depressed and then inset the battery.

The goal is to try to force the firing sequence to get the piston back to the right position with corded units this is simply done by attaching the air hose with the trigger pulled this causes air to rush into the gun chamber pushing the piston back and firing a nail out.

The cause of this is a misfire or jammed nail that stopped the piston in the wrong location so air will not build in the chamber correctly.

Hope that helps

My gun fires but only loads the nail 20-30% of the time. I tried taking it apart but don't know where to look for the problem. Please help!

The problem will reside in the nail chamber. Most likely you have junk there or a scored feed area. Check the plunger and feed area for dirt and/or scoring to determine what exactly is holding up your advancing of strip nails.

Paslode nail gun wont fir nails model 5350/903 air compresser type

paslode is a very good gun and I use them daily. release the clip from the front and it will expose the channel that the nail travels through. Make sure there is no broken pieces of nail in it. you can also check on the trigger and make sure it pushes the pin in all the way. I dont know if you have the grey or orange one in it but it doesnt matter, the get worn over time and if it is bad, one pin will let you replace it. if none of these ideas help, take the top of the gun off(a few hex screws)and expose the top of the cylinder head and look for holes around that piston. if it has one there will be excessive discharges of air out the top of the gun

I have paslode finishing nail gun , i cleaned it, not working now

The smoking is normal for a few times after cleaning ,but you might have put to much oil drops in chamber and piston chamber is getting a "vapor lock". Try recleaning with degreaser. Also have you forgotten to set the depth gauge at front of nose.
