Below find information on how to adjust for depth, however if you have already made adjustment then check for broken tip on driver blade. The blade is not expensive and available from dewalt service center.

Please note the following from manual:

Adjusting Depth
The depth that the fastener is driven can be adjusted using
the depth adjustment wheel (C) on the side of the tool.
WARNING: To reduce risk of serious injury from
accidental actuation when attempting to adjust depth,
ALWAYS:
• Remove battery pack.
• Engage contact trip lock-off.
• Avoid contact with trigger during adjustments.
1. To drive the nail shallower, rotate the depth adjustment
wheel (C). There are twelve depth settings, 1 being the
shallowest and 6 being the deepest.
2. To sink a nail deeper, rotate the depth adjustment
wheel (C) to a higher setting.

Hello my dewalt dc618 wont fire its bands and belts are all good.it tries to fire but only when no nails a in it.i think the driver is worn can you help thanks.


I've been using dewalt tools exclusively for 15 years. I've fixed numerous drivers, sawzals, etc. I've learn 3 things over and over again. 1 cleaning & lubing are grossly under rated, 2 if one part goes the rest are not far behind & 3 it has never cost me more than $20 to $30 bucks more to have the repair place rebuild it than to fix it myself. And most times they give you a new bulk packaged tool as a rebuilt. My recommendation: have it rebuilt...enjoy the new tool.

How do I replace the belt on Dewalt cordless dc618?


Remove 2 screws on metal front cover.
Remove screws holding handle halves together and carefully separate (Be careful because trigger spring can fly out on you).
This will expose the belt and allow replacement. There is a spring loaded idler pulley so removal & replacing is easy.

Can a dewalt dc618 nail gun be made stronger by opening it up as I have The gauge at 6 the batteries are fully charged and the nails want go all the way inthe gauge set at 6 the batteries are fully charged...


Yes but it is pretty complicated inside one of those things. I would not recommend trying to fix something like that unless you know what you're doing. There is a wheel that spins continuously and once you hit the foot, the driver pushes against the wheel and it shoots forward.

Old batteries could make things weaker. Try it with new batteries or batteries that are newer first. If that doesn't work, take it to a service center.

Can the carriage on a dewalt dc618 nailgun be adjusted


The only adjustment on nail guns is for the nail drive depth, the magazine is hard mounted to the nose piece. If you are having problems with the nail clips feeding, first make sure the entire feed path is clear of any nails, parts of nails or other foreign things. Then make sure the nails you are using are fully compatable with your nailgun. Your gun needs 16 guage nails set at a 20-degree angle no shorted than 1 1/4" and no longer than 2 1/2" long. Any deviation from those requirements will only give you a headache worse than what you have now.

My DC618 nailer won't fire .


Check the battey then take it out and check the driving rod. On the front of the gun, flip the latch and make sure it is pushed all the way back.
make sure you have nail, of course. put the battery back in. If al that does not work, have it services at a dewalt service center.

Is there any way to free driver blade on nail gun? my gun is the dewalt 20 degree framing nailer


I am assuming that a nail got jammed? If so unplug air to tool, remove the rest of nails and turn it over. try to find a flat piece of steel smaller than the nose where nail goes and gently tap the driver back up and remove jammed nail. If the driver is broken that is a different fix. Hope this helps

Dewalt dc618 nailer is not firing


I have both the DC616 and 618 and have used them sucessfully for about three years. Two main things go wrong. There is a drive belt that breaks (drives the spool that give the energy to drive in the nails), second are two small rubber bands on either side of the drive head that break. The bands can be accessed by taking off the front silver cover, the drive belt is access by spliting the case. Make sure you are using the correct nails or the drive pin may become bent and will jamb repeatedly. Hope that helps!
