SOURCE: replaced leaking trigger valve wit new valve kit.

I have seen many small bostitch guns all with different problems that did not shoot nails. Both of your guns have simillar triggers. You might try the trigger valve from the gun that works to see if that is the problem. Most no fire situations come from faulty trigger valve. The trigger valve used in your guns has a part that stays in the body of the gun; be sure to replace both parts. If still no fire check the following:
Remove the head and check if the piston/driver travels all the way down the cylinder with the tip of be blade showing at the nose. Some piston/drivers have a grove that must be aligned.

Check that the headvalve travels into the head and returns. Push the valve in with your thumb then cover the small vent hole at the base of the head where the gasket sits with your finger and release your thumb. The headvalve should be held in with vacuum then pop up when you remove your finger from the vent hole. If the headvalve does not stay pushed in with the vent covered, the orings are leaking and can cause the gun not to fire. Try lubing the headvalve with light grease such as silicone lube. Do not use bearing grease. Silicone lube is available in small amounts at plumbing supply/lumber outlets such as Lowes. It looks like wax feels like shortening.

Reassemble the gun and check your work. I test the gun with-out nails and without the trigger installed. Just place the nose of the gun on a piece of rubber, (I use a piece of heavy garden hose rolled up tightly into a coil) and press the trigger valve pin with your finger. The reason that I leave the trigger off is that sometimes the problem is caused by the safety mech not pushing the trigger pin correctly. enjoy

SOURCE: gun does not fire every time

When you cleaned it, you may have pinched the large brown o-ring that is around the fan. Take gun apart again and reassemble. before you place the orange head valve cover on, press the nose of the gun into a wood surface and assure the o-ring goes into chamber unrestricted. Basically, the aluminum fingers of the cylinder should not pinch off the o-ring.

SOURCE: Paslode nail guns won't shoot

piston is probably jammed

This happens sometimes try holding it up against a board with the trigger depressed and then inset the battery.

The goal is to try to force the firing sequence to get the piston back to the right position with corded units this is simply done by attaching the air hose with the trigger pulled this causes air to rush into the gun chamber pushing the piston back and firing a nail out.

The cause of this is a misfire or jammed nail that stopped the piston in the wrong location so air will not build in the chamber correctly.

Hope that helps

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.

Paslode Cordless Nailer Problems


<p><b><i>Paslode cordless nailers</i></b> are a very common tool used by many professionals and do it yourselfers. These <b>nail guns are a great tool</b> when they work correctly, but can drive you nuts when they do not work as they should. When answering problems that people have on <a href="http://www.fixya.com/"><b>www.Fixya.com</b></a> I come across many questions about these nail guns and why they do not work.<br /> <p><br /> <p>If you are having problems with your <b>Paslode nail gun</b> the first thing you need to do is get the <b>Paslode manual</b> out of the box and checkout how to <b>clean the nail gun</b>. One of the most common causes for these <b>nail guns to have problems</b> is because of a<b> lack of maintenance</b>. If you do not have the <b>manual for your Paslode nailer</b> you can download one here. <a href="http://www.paslode.com/owners-manuals.html">www.paslode.com/owners-manuals.html</a><br /> <p>They have all of the current models and also <b>discontinued model Paslode manuals</b> there.<br /> <p><br /> <p>The manual will also contain <b>troubleshooting information</b> also. The <b>troubleshooting guide</b> can often help you to find the problem with your tool. Do not do the common man thing and be too proud to <b>get out the directions and READ them.</b> There are many tips and helps contained in them that will save you a ton of aggravation later.<br /> <p><br /> <p>Now, there are a few things that I have found out through my experiences with this nail gun that are not in the manual. <br /> <p><br /> <p>First, When the manual tells you that the tool needs to be <b>cleaned and lubed regularly</b> it means that you NEED to do that. Most problems are because of a<b> lack of cleaning and lubing the tool</b>.<br /> <p><br /> <p>Besides that, <b>gas cylinders</b> are a problem sometimes even if they are new. If you just replaced the gas cylinder and the <b>nail gun will not work</b>, try another one. Also, sometimes the end that goes on the gas cylinders will not snap on correctly or completely. You sometimes can still get the cylinder into the gun but it will not work because the top is not attached completely or correctly.<br /> <p><br /> <p>Check that the <b>nails do not get jammed in the magazine</b> and then not push up to the front of the gun. No nails, no work. Paper from the nails can sometimes cause them to bind up and not slide front. Make sure to always use nails that are only for the<b> Paslode nail gun</b>.<br /> <p><br /> <p>The firing pin can also be a problem. The <b>firing pin will bend</b> sometimes, but usually because of lack of the right nails or maintenance. Another problem that can happen is that the<b> o-rings around the firing pin</b> will break or crack. When this happens the gun may not fire or the pin will not return after it shoots a nail. If you are having these problems then check the o-rings both top and mid-pin to make sure they are in good shape. If they are chipped or cracked in anyway the gun will not work correctly.<br /> <p><br /> <p>The <b>battery contacts</b> on these nailers are also a problem. They can get dirt and dust in them or become bent. If they fail to make good contact they can cause the gun to have all types of problems. If you are having unexplained problems then<b> check the contacts of both the battery</b> and the gun. You can clean them with a soft cloth or sometimes with a pencil eraser.<br /> <p><br /> <p>The last but least likely problem is the<b> internal wiring in the nail gun</b>. Because of the violent nature of the gun firing the wiring takes a beating inside the nail gun.<b> Every time the gun fires</b> the vibration can cause the wires to move just a bit and eventually a wire can work loose. If all other things check out then look for wires that do not go anywhere. If there is a wire floating around that has no home then you have found your problem. After adjusting the end of the wire so it is tighter, reconnect the wire and you will be working again.<br /> <p><br /> <p>As you can see there are many things that can go wrong with these nail guns. Because of this there also are many things that you can find online that will help you. <b>E-how.com</b> has some tips that will help. <b>You-tube</b> also has some videos that will show you how to clean and troubleshoot these nail guns. Doing a simple online search will give you many places that can help you and also give you sites from which to buy parts if needed.<br /> <p><br /> <p>If you need parts for your nail gun, here is a good place to get those parts.<br /> <p><br /> <p><a href="http://itwconstructionparts.com/xcart/">http://itwconstructionparts.com/xcart/</a><br /> <p><br /> <p>

Nail gun doesn't shoot and air blowing out vent constant.


We used nail guns for years. I still own 6 guns, but they aren't used much anymore.
You have a 'blown head gasket.'
Or there is debris from the air hose that got lodged into the gun.
There is a head gasket and a trigger gasket.
Both can blow out any time from use, lack of oil, or they can stick open from debris.
You can take apart the head and clean it up and add oil to see if that solves problem.
You can order a gun re-build kit for your model and put in the parts yourself.
You can have a nail gun repair shop do the job.

Nail guns require gun oil.
If you don't use gun for a while, oil should be put into air hose opening and then left to run down into gun. More oil is better.
If you use 3-in-1 oil or some oil besides gun oil, then it will corrode the gaskets.
When storing air hose and guns, put tape over openings so they stay clean.
Before hooking air hose to a gun, you can also put a blower on hose and blow out the line first

It appears that the 22 shell has become lodged in the barrel.


I'm assuming you are using something like a powder actuated nailing gun. If so the tool should come apart for just this reason. Do not try to mechanically force the spent shell from the barrel. You can damage the inside of the barrel. If you have the manual or know the brand name and model number you should be able to find a manual online that will tell you how to dismantle the tool.

I have a shell stuck in the gun and can't get it out!


if it is exploded run a rod through the gun when you break it apart. if it is unexploded be careful - it's probably a rim fire cartridge. use plenty of penetrating oil.

Powder actuated tool wont fire. I think the firing pin is stuck


is this the one you hit with a hammer? if so check to see if the firing pin is hitting the shell rim at all, if it is sometimes you just have to hit it harder, and make sure your holding the shell in position with down pressure on the handle. if it is the gun model then make sure that the safety lever is is reaching the trip mechanism when you are holding it down making ready to fire.

Nail Guns Types


The real different between nail gun's models are the sort of power supply they use. A nail gun can be powered by compressed air, electricity or batteries, or electromagnetism. Some small guns are powered by butane, a fuel that causes a small explosive charge to drive the nail into the wood. The most common type of nail gun is the pneumatic nailer, which works with compressed air.
