SOURCE: I purchased a new FN16250K-2 finish nailer today. I loaded it w/

It can be confusing these days knowing exactly how each nailer works. For example your nailer has three different triggers available that will function differently. The black trigger is the contact trigger that will fire a nail every time the safety hits the work or (bump fire with trigger held); with the grey trigger one must depress the safety foot against the work first ~ then squeeze trigger. To fire again you must release the trigger withdraw the gun ~ re-depress the safety and squeeze the trigger to fire again. A third black trigger is available that will fire the gun with mechanical arm for production work. You can test the gun for defect by disconnecting air, removing the nails, remove the trigger retainer pin, remove the trigger. Then connect air and press the gun against wood and press the trigger pin with your finger. Not good to dry fire these guns; thats why it is necessary to place gun against wood to absorbe energy. If the gun does not fire return for exchange. Good Luck

SOURCE: nail gun double fires

There is one main part that can be the cause of the problem.

The trigger. Check to see if there is anything out of the ordinary with this. There should be some moving components attached to the trigger itself. Is any part of the trigger touching the button in the body of the gun when safety is not depressed. If the lever on the trigger is pushing on the button, even a little bit, It will allow the gun to fire again and again.

SOURCE: when I pull the trigger, the nailer just goes

The first thing that comes to mind is they are not being oiled properly. Follow the directions for the number of drops of air tool oil to put in daily. If they have been run dry, this makes quick work of the Orings and requires rebuilding the nailer with new Orings.

The second thing is if contamination has gotten into the cylinder bottom thaat can happen if a jam has ever occured.

Dis-assemble the nailer and inspect for these conditions.

SOURCE: Gun fires, leaves good indentation, no nail. WCE

Remove nails and use thin tool to push driver all the way up to top of cylinder. If the gun fires one nail then skips, the driver is not returning to top of cylinder. If no nails fire, then nails are not feeding into proper position. Driver must return to top to allow nails to feed into position. Most common problems are bent driver, worn piston oring and bad batch of nails(head too large). Good luck

Why does nail gun not fire? Safety works ok. Gun loaded with 2 1/2" finish nails. Trigger safety switch is off. Slight hiss of air when trigger depressed but does not fire.


Hi Charles & Floyd:
Just a couple of thoughts that may assist.
First. This is an air tool so it is DANGEROUS! Treat it like a LOADED GUN.
Here's what I would do:
- Disconnect from air supply - point away from anything I don't want to hurt, and squeeze trigger. Press safety against block of wood and squeeze trigger.
- Now that I know it is safe, I would remove the nails from the magazine and check that none is stuck in breech mechanism.
- Check that feed spring/latch has released. Sometimes if loaded too full it can catch.
- Load some nails, check that they are the correct fit, and are sliding in the magazine.
- check air supply pressure. Should be between 80 and 100 psi.
- reconnect air supply and try again.
- If it does not fire it may be that the piston is not fully retracting. Since it is new, I would be returning it to the store where it was purchased.
Hope this helps.

Miss fires and wont sink nails depth set deep and pressure over 120 psi


If no air is leaking from gun, miss-fire is usually caused by worn or too tight piston oring or lack of lubrication. Easy test. Disconnect airline, remove nails, point nose of gun up then down. Driver should stay in uppermost position. If driver moves up then down within gun replace piston oring and retest. Set pressure to about 100psi. Good luck with repair.

Adjusting airpresure


There is nothing on a nailer to adjust the air pressure. You have to do it at the pressure regulator. It is feasable to mount a regulator at the gun but more likely it's on the compressor. Most nail guns are rated for 90 to 120 psi. Set your regulator to hold the hose pressure between 90 and 100 psi. Using higher pressure to set the nail will ruin your nailer. Use the depth adjustment on the gun to set how far the nail is driven.

My DC616 a straight 16 gauge DeWalt finish nailer tries to drive 2 nails when it fires 1 out of about every 5 to 10 shots. I am a finish contractor and have used this nailer for about 6 years. I was...


Argh...

Had the same problem, but only after about 4-5 nails. Once it jammed 4 times in a row - very frustrating.

I read the manual, took the unit apart, checked the driver - it was straight. I took a file and filed the back end of the driver down a bit so it would miss the second nail and so far it seems to be working famously.

Great unit...

Nail gun wont fire


First - the air pressure has to be high enough - check the regulator on the tank to make sure it is delivering in excess of 60-70 psi (which I am sure you have already done).

If you have dry fired these guns (i.e. shot them off with no nails in them while you were lubricating them maybe) the mechanism inside could be damaged. I had that happen to one of my nailers (same brand). That was when I learned not to dry fire them...

Since both of them are not working though I would be more inclined to look at the air supply first.

Will a 1/3 hp compressor fire an 18 guage 5/8'-2" Finish nailer?


You compessor is ideal for a small spray gun however a pin nailer requires 80 to 100 psi and a small air storage thank to operate properly. The nailer may very well shoot a short nail into very soft wood at 30 psi, however there may not be enough pressure to push the piston back to top positon to load another nail and fire again. Good Luck

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.

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.
