1 trigger valve needs replacement, piston not fully retracting every time
2 feeder spring needs replacement, less likely but possible

Check the pin and spring on the feeder. They are known for having the rubber washer fall off then the pin falls out. Also is the spring is bad or missing it won't feed.

My gun has always from day one punches out 2 nail and jams up or not, is there an adjust ment for this problem


Nailers will double fire or at times, the driver will hit two nails with one stroke. The first issue is caused by sensitive trigger or worn orings and the second problem is caused by faulty nails (too close together in strip ) or the driver is bent slightly allowing the driver to strike the head of the second nail in line. One way to prevent double fire is to use the single trip trigger (usually white plastic). With this trigger, you must lift the gun off the work, release the trigger and press the gun against the work and pull the trigger. If you are using the black bump fire trigger and it double fires, replace the trigger valve. The issue of the driver blade hitting two nails with one stroke can be solved by examining the driver blale for damage. The blade should have a taper on the side that faces the nails. This taper is there so that as the driver hits the first nail the taper will gently push the rest of the nails slightly into the rails out of the way. If generic nails are used, make sure that the nails are designed with the proper spacing and angle. Easy test. With the gun on its side, place a strip of nails on top of the rails with the heads aligned with the angle of the rails. Move the strip of nails so that the first nail is in the path of the driver and the heads are still aligned with the rails. The first nail should align perfectly with the angle and path of the driver. If the head of first nail is in the path of the driver however the shaft of the nail is angled toward the rails, the driver blade may hit two nails. If the point of the first nail is in the path of the driver and the head is angled back toward the rails, you may have miss fire. If the nails are perfectly aligned with the rails and the path of the driver and the driver is hitting the second nail, grind more taper at the bottom inch of the driver. Good luck

BOSTITCH 1664FN 16 Gauge is spitting out 2 nails, stuck together, at once. I cleared a Jam by opening the nose door. I thought there was a piece of metal strip in there. Now it's not there. Is this...


There is not enough room in the nose of the gun for two 16 gauge nails. Most likely 18 gauge nails are the problem (thinner). If nails are correct, tip of driver must be damaged allowing the driver to hit part of the next nail. The driver should be slightly tapered on the side that faces the rails so that the driver will hit first nail head and gently shove the rest of the nails back into the rails out of the way. I dont believe that you have any missing pieces. If nails are correct, remove head and pull out the driver and check for damage. Hold the tip of the driver against nail head, should be slightly thinner than head of nail.If the driver is not tapered slightly on the side that faces the nails, maybe you should sand it a little so the driver will not hit the second nail. Goodluck

My makita an451 roof nailer keeps shooting 2 nails I've tried 2 different brands of nails


Nailers that use strips of nails (one nail directly behind the other) will sometimes drive two nails at once and is caused by damage to the driver. The nails are so close together that the driver will hit the first and part of the second nail head. Coil nailers, as your an451, use nails seperated by welded wire making it very difficult the the driver to hit the second nail. Usually when a coil nailer shoots two nails, it is acutally the trigger valve that acutates twice (two very rapid fires). Two very rapid fires is caused by faulty trigger valve. I have seen a roofing coil nailer fire one nail and a second nail drops out of the gun. Caused by weak / malfunction of nail feeder or wire used to weld nails together is too thick.

Nail gun shoots 1st nail fine then second is a blank. The gun is clean, there is no jam, they are the right nails. PSI is at 100. Person using gun has used this gun and others for a very long time. ...


Miss fire usually occurs when piston/driver is bent, piston oring worn, lower bumper cracked or missing pieces or upper bumper is cracked. Easy to check. Remove head and pull piston. If bent try to adjust, but be careful, blade breaks easily. Piston should fit snugly in cylinder, if loose, replace piston oring. If oring/plastic ring ok examine lower bumper for cracks and replace as needed. If lower bumper ok, pull out headvalve and examine upper bumper for cracks. If upper bumper ok, pull cylinder and look for loose check band around cylinder. Check band is black rubber and should be placed around cylinder fitting snuggly covering series of holes. Replace parts as needed and lube with silicone paste sold at Lowes in the plumbing department (or white grease). Good luck

The dial on the top of the gun is most likely the depth adjustment for the nails, this should solve the driver damaging the work piece. Make sure the nails are the correct guage for the nailer you have.
