The sear and pin can certainly "look" fine but still be a fraction off and let the marker loose. Also, you may notice that the pin on the sear is different than the others? Perhaps silver where the others are black?

My best advice at this point would be to check with a buddy who's willing to let you exchange the sear and pin and see if that's the problem, or check with a local airsmith who can try this for you and check for any other problems as well.

Good luck!

What do the numbers on the scotts spreader indicate? Is the larger the number the more or less product dropped?


The larger number indicates how far open the the blade on the bottom of the hopper will open when you pull the trigger. The larger the number the more product is dropped.

Gun is full of nails, but acts like it is empty (the plunger won't advance). You go to tap it with the trigger pulled, and it just does nothing. Seems like firing pin is not getting air or somet


If no air is leaking from the gun, take out the nails, remove trigger by removing 3mm hex head bolt to expose the trigger pin. With air connected and side door open so that you can see the feeder, quickly depress the trigger pin with finger. Gun should fire. If gun does not fire (only makes air sound at trigger) dissconnect airline, remove head and lube headvalve with white grease and reinstall. Test again. If ok replace trigger. If still no joy, replace trigger valve with new factory or generic (part # TVA6). If gun fires but does not activate the feeder claw, remove two 6mm hex bolts from front of gun and split apart upper and lower body and check white oring (part # 149885) Good luck

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

Nail gun shoots 2-3 nails, not one. last week 2 of them hit me in the thumb. has been doing this for years. I have put up with it because I did not know what to do about it.


Most nailers work better by bump firing the gun. Less likely to double fire. This is a common problem amoung brands. If you place nailer on work then trigger, you may/will have problems as you describe. There is usually an option of triggers or builtin method of single firing the gun. With single fire trigger, you can place gun on work and fire. The will not reset for next round untill you let go of trigger and lift gun off the work. If your gun is double firing even with bump method, then replace the trigger valve.

Tdwbit269@aol.commy gun will not shut off even when i pull the trigger, liquid keeps flowing out. good thing is that i am getting something through the hose so that means my machine is working right?


You need a re-build kit for your gun.

The needle that pulls back when you squeeze the trigger is no longer making a seal when you release the trigger.
The problem is worse when you spray thin oil-based paints.

Depending on the gun, Sherwin Williams has kits for the Graco gun. That's where we bought ours for years up until I retired from painting.
Home Depot and Lowes may have parts.

I have an a5 paintball gun with electronic trigger, when i hook it to air and pull the trigger, the hopper is not moving!!!


On the A5 the hopper or Cyclone feed is powered thru a small tube on the feeder side
of the gun. Make sure that tube is connected and if so, pull it off and see if air is flowing
thru it when you pull the trigger. If not, the internal passage may be blocked. Tear down
the gun and clean out the obstruction. If there is a pulse of air coming out the tube when firing
then it may be the Cyclone feed mechanism. Just unscrew the 3 phillips head bolts
under the Cyclone and observe the air driven gear drive. Air up the marker and see
what is moving or not moving. Complete replacement upgrade Cyclone gear drives
are available that say they increase performance if you cant get it moving.

Dewalt angled finish nailer, just got, when nose is depressed and trigger pulled, just sound of air releasing, wont fire..... need trigger assembly?


if air is released when the trigger is pulled then stops when the trigger is released , then the trigger is doing its job. its probably a firing valve issue. four screws will take off the top cap of the gun the firing valve is inside of the cap . first check to see if the gun has enough oil( unless its an oil less gun) if its dry then grease or oil all of the orings, if this dose not work check to see if any of the orings or plastic parts need replacing. pls rate this answer...;tks

Trigger pull is not as far as older model


some models have less trigger movement than others.
at the back of the gun you have two adjusting knobs the lower one controls the trigger movement, which controls the fluid flow from the nozzle.

I cannot figure out how to use my cleaner floor mate


At the risk of giving a simplistic answer, let me go through the steps I go through every time I use mine:
1) Plug it into the wall
2) Take out the upper "hopper" and fill it up to the fill line with hot water
3) Put in the capful of cleaning solution (about 2 oz.)
4) Gently swish it back and forth, then put back into upper unit until it clicks into place
5) For best results, set the vacuum on Dry and vacuum the house first, then clean the lower "hopper"
6) Set the vacuum to Wet, put the scrub brushes on, depress the trigger and do overlapping strokes, a section at a time I depress the trigger on the push stroke, then release it for the pull stroke. I clean a section, then turn off the scrub brushes and go over it again without the scrub brush or touching the trigger (trying to pick up as much water as possible).

On average, when refilling the water/cleaner solution for the top hopper, empty and clean the lower hopper. When the floors are finished, completely clean that lower hopper or it will smell!

Hope this helps...
