SOURCE: nailer drives one nail but driver pin doesn,t

Remove the air hose and open the nailer head section. Look for a foreign object in this are that could be jamming the drive pin. Also, make sure you are using the right size nails.

SOURCE: The nails aren't going in far enough using a air cleat nailer

I just finished 800 square feet of oak flooring with this nailer. You might have to increase the psi at the gun and make sure it gets a good square firm hit to set the nail. You can swing and hit the thing pretty hard, I hit it hard to set warped boards in place. I used 120 psi for best results, I tried 90 psi but had more misfires. The nail head only needs to set in far enough so the head is touching the tongue and so the next board will fit. The nail won't be buried into the tongue like you might think. If the occasional nail protrudes from the board you can use a nail set to drive the nail the rest of the way in, but I found that most of the nails didn't want to set by hand. I either clipped off the head with side cutters and folded over the remaining tab or did my best to set the nail if it wasn't long enough to clip. If it bends over really ugly, just carve a little wood from the groove lands on the next board to clear the nail stub. Removing the nails is difficult, it's best to let them be rather than risk damaging the flooring. Also, don't let the gun get down to the last nail. Sometimes if you try to fire the last nail on a strip it will twist and damage the flooring. Always keep a few nails in the gun just to be safe. Hope this helps.

My gr200lcn floor nailer keeps getting nail stuck in it on the first nail filred


Depending on amout of use, driver blades do need to be ground square or replaced to make full contact with the nail head . There could be other factors causing problem however. The nails do need to align with the path of the driver. Make sure that the first nail is directly under the path of the driver. If the nails are not made correctly or the wrong nails are in the gun, the angle of the nails may be preventing full contact of the driver to nail head. Good luck

PORTOMATIC NAILER . WILL NOT COUNTERSINK NAILS PSI 100


On many floor nailers, counter sink is controlled by the thickness of lower pad. Your nailer most likely uses several different thickness of pads bolted to the bottom surface of the gun (usually white vinyl /plastic). The thinner the pad, the deeper the nail will set. Good luck.

Common problems dewalt clipped head framing nailer


there is NO easy solution for this, but unplug air and get a pair of safety glasses and a punch and try and knock the driver up into the tool away from the nail or if it is just jammed try and pull the nail out. You didn't really specify where the problem is. Let me know if you need more assistance.

You may try to see if the plunger is in a down position, if so you may be able to take a screw dirver or punch of some sort and drive the plunger back into the head and free up the nail that is wedged in the feed chamber. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Ive had the same problem where it was putting divits you could see from the staples, we ended up changing out the flooring completely. Only thing besides trying diff psi's to get it perfect and different length staples/different heads on staples(nails) , maybe try staple gun.

Using recommended 3 1/2" nails; cannot get the nailer to sink the nail all the way to the head. Depth is set to max and air pressure within recommended range of 70 to 120 p. s. i. g.


remove the nails and air hose. tap the gun lightly and does the driver fall down?? if so it needs new o rings and doesn't have enough seal to drive the nail. also look at the condition of the driver. FOLLOW CLOSELY, reconnect the gun and remove the nails pull back on the follower and using a piece of wood to activate the safety hold gun at an angle, weara safety glasses and depress and hold trigger to expose the driver, does it extend past the nose and LOOK DONT TOUCH to check the condition of the end. release the trigger. this should give you some ideas why. also recheck the nails for proper collation and head are they clipped or full round. Let me know and I will try and help further. READ closely before attempting the above ideas.

Using the BOstitch flooring nailer, good air pressure and using cleats. but when i tap with hammer noting happens. the nailer goes off as if it had gone off but no nail was driven.


1. check to make sure the magazine does not contain a jam.
2. check to make sure the driver retracts fully to allow the cleat to advance
3. Be sure to have at least 90psi and to hit the head hard enough to fully fire the nailer.
