    could be quite a few problems, did you remove the top cover and front housing to unjam nail? When was the last time it was cleaned., Fast troubleshooting, remove top cover 4 screws and remove the fromt assembly as a unit, 2 cap head bolts down where the safety is. this will expose the fan assembly REMOVE THE FUEL CELL, put battery into tool and depress the trigger, the fan should start and run for a couple minutes, on the upper portion you will find a roller lever depress it and you should have the same, the fan runs and shuts off. If not stop there and you have a problem with the circuit board or spark unit. Next keeping fingers away from fan blade depress and hold the roller switch and depress the trigger switch you should see a spark jump the gap. If so then check the condition of the o ring on fan unit, look at condition of driver to make sure not bent or still jammed and the condition of the cylinder for dirt or other problems. I know this sounds involved but it doesn't take that long. Lastly if needing cleaning and you misplaced your manual go to Paslode.com and download one and it has detailed cleaning and troubleshooting sections. Let me know

Stuart - this sounds like an air problem - you should perform the following test. With the air nailer close to the compressor you must monitor the airpressure after the gun fires. it sounds like the air is not gettting through diapram fast enough or there is a blockage in line. Blockage in line is not suspected for the following reason . It sounds like the air hose is holding enough air to fire 2-4 nails and then you must wait for the line to fill up again and then it fires ok. The pressure regulator out to the line controls this and they do fail. try this test and report back to me - I know I can solve this for you as I have extensive background in compressor and the like.

SOURCE: How do you safely remove jammed nail gun?

Not sure exactly what Bostitch framer model you have, but if it is powered by compressed air, as long as you remove the air hose from the nail gun, there should be no risk of the nail gun firing while you remove the jammed nail. There should be a way to access the driver area from the top of the nail gun, even via a latch or a couple screws. Remove the top part of the driver area and that should give you access to the jammed nail, which you can remove. Use long nose pliers or something similar if the nails are really stuck.

SOURCE: paslode nail gun isnt firing every time, remove

Cant help really but I strongly advise you not to fire the machine under any circumstances without nails and a piece of wood to try it on. tremendous damage to the mechanism can result.

Sounds like you may have a nail jam. You didn't specify what type of nailer you have - most finish guns have a latch to open the nose & clear a jam - if it is a framer most of the time it requires a long punch and a hammer to push the driver back in past the jam to clear it.
Let me know if this does not fix your issue.

Hitachi nail gun


If gun firing but nails not being driven could be one of two basic problems:
1. Nail jammed in magazine not allowing nails to move up.
Empty magazine, does follower move to top of magazine. Push gun against work piece, does fan motor start? Yes - jam in magazine or lock out bar not operating. (this would allow nail un to fire when out of nails)
2. Piston/driver not returning fully after firing, hence driver blade on top of next nail instead of behind it. This could again be caused by a jammed nail or just a nail head. Another case of not returning is the combustion chamber not making a good seal, check O rings on framer (they are steel rings on bradders) it may just need a good clean it is surprising how dirty they can get and if not cleaned a build up of dirt could break a seal. If not been cleaned for a long time worth checking piston rings, worst case scenario dirt builds up around the rings and stick fully in requiring new piston if the rings will not come out.
Nail guns work on the principle that an explosion pushes the piston driver forcing a nail into the work piece, after the explosion a vacuum is created and it is this that 'sucks' the piston/driver back up the cylinder.

The gun will fire the first time but will jam when i try to fire it again.


Assuming that the gun will not jam with nails removed and the driver returns to top of cylinder when fired without nails. If the driver is bent the nailer will jam without nails. Jamming is usualy caused by bent driver, driver tip worn (not square), or wrong nails. If the driver is not bent and the tip is square, suspect wrong nails. Easy test. Place a strip of nails on outside of rails with the nail heads aligned with top of rail. Move the strip of nails toward the nose if gun. With the heads aligned with the top of the rail, the first nail should align with the path of the driver. If the first nail does not align with the path of the driver and the head is angled slightly away from the path of the driver, the driver may strike the shaft of the first nail pushing the nails back into the rails. If the head of the first nail is forward with the nail shaft angled back away, the nail will flip causing jam. The first nail should align with the path of the driver to prevent jam. It is difficult to find perfectly made nails that align correctly. But certainly check the nails with test mentioned above with every new box for accuracy. You might find that you will need to change brands to get a good fit. Good luck.

NR90AE Nails jammed how to remove


New user will jam the gun/ nails because gun was most likely not bump fired. Placing the gun then depressing trigger will usually cause double fire in the hands of new user. New user should practice on scrap lumber bump firing at many angles till they get the idea; or give them a training period with a nailer that has a single shot trigger (they may develop bad habits with single shot however).

My FR350A fails to "fire' when the trigger is pulled. Only a small amount of air is released.


could be one of 2 things.
1. nail jammed in the nose. open up nose and clear jam
2. safety not being pushed all the way in. try pushing the gun strait down on a board, with no nails in it , and see if it fires then

ps. have you oiled your tool lately, 5 drops of pneumatic tool oil in the air input of the gun every time you use it
