SOURCE: DeWalt d51822 framing nailer, shoots 2 nails at once 1 in 5 times

I worked at at tool rental center while attending college and learned from the old tool masters about nails and nailers. Rental stores have many different brands of nailers to rent and customers would bring their own nails of all brands. You will notice on the case/box that your nails will /should work on many other brands however the degree or angle of the nails is not always exacly as stated on the box. You should check with protractor the exact angle of your nails and also check the exact angle of the nailer. Use straight edge on travel path of the piston and another on guide rails to check angle of the gun. You will discover that all is not as stated as in a perfect world. If the angle is off slightly, the head of the second nail will get into the path of the driver. This happens mostly with clip head because the nail heads are so close together. The full round head is spaced further apart with less jamming. If angle is off slightly, take a look at other brands of nails with protractor in hand, the angle will be different slightly or choose a slightly thicker nail. Look for the nails to fit with bottom of nail hitting the barrel first. This will move the head of the nail slightly away from the center line. Finally do not release pusher with force as this will jamb nails closer together. Good Luck!?

SOURCE: Dewalt cordless nail gun fires but doesn't seem to

Try another brand of nails -- maybe your gun doesn't like those. Also, blow any dirt out of the nail magazine.

Air comes out the nose of my dewalt framing nailer


Again sounds like blown O ring give it a squirt of 3in1 oil and fire it several times (if oil is compatible in your gun). Repair center if that doesn't work. Trash can also get in the air orifice and stop moving parts from moving.

D51822 plunger will fire (and impact wood) but will not retract enough to grab/push out a nail.


Dewalt nailers have some vinyl orings that fail. Usually found within the trigger valve, headvalve, and between the cylinder and cylinder spacer (white plastic piece). A dewalt nailer with failing orings may not leak air however. The vinyl orings tend to start to crumble and the tacky-crumbling pieces tend to create a seal. Easy way to check condition of the vinyl seals in a Dewalt is to remove the trigger valve and look at the orings on the firing pin/stem (2mmx1.5mm orings). If these two orings are soft and sticky, then orings inside of gun most likely the same. Check band on the outside of the cylinder (part # 390159-00) is what causes piston to return to top. But also check to too tight or too loose piston oring, bent shaft of driver and worn/ broken lower bumper. If all is well with internal parts and piston does not return to top, too much air is leaking past nose of gun. Oring kit sold by dewalt will contain most of the orings needed. The kit may not have orings for the trigger. You will at need two orings (2mm x 1.5mm) for the trigger valve stem or just replace the valve. Use white grease or silicone paste lube on all the orings. Good luck.

Dewalt corless nailer lost power while puting nails in wood, he is working but does not have power to go all the way in the wood


Have you been keeping the gun properly lubricated? In the high dust atmosphere of the workplace it needs cleaned & lubed frequently.

Inlet air preasure


Dewalt guns use between 70 and 120 psi. I use 100 psi on all framing guns when testing, however the nailer will last longer if you use lower pressure (only whats needed to drive nail into work, depending on type of wood) . When too much pressure is used, extra force is absorbed by the lower bumper and nose area of gun.
The address below is dewalt service and has all the info about your nailer. Just enter the model number and look for pdf file. Check your model number for safety recall. Good luck

I have a d51822 framing nailer that will shoot a nail but then not recoil to shoot the next nail, if you wait 10-20 seconds the gun will release air at the top of the gun and recoil


Most likely there is a problem with swollen orings between the cylinder and cylinder spacer (white plastic piece between cylinder and body ). Order the oring kit because nost likely when you take the gun apart the orings will fall apart. Dewalt used vinyl orings instead of viton on critical areas of the cylinder and these vinyl orings failed.

After shooting a nail, it fires out two more nails. It's a Dewalt d51822.


There is a replacement trigger valve available from Dewalt. The new part number is 5140095-73 (the old part number was 641006-00 ). I am not sure however if the new part is just a natural upgrade or if it was changed to address an issue. I have seen these guns double fire and fire once when air is connected. I would change trigger valve and four orings that make contact with the bulkhead (part # 395215-00). These orings are in the repair kit available from Dewalt (kit does not include the trigger valve). Use caution for now, do not load nails until you are ready to nail; then pull out nails from rails when done . Good luck

Nail Gun support


Yes, because there is less risk of splitting the wood grain when using a nail gun than when using a hammer, nail guns are especially useful in delicate projects such as the application of indoor trimming. A nail gun sets the nail in one motion, reducing the chance of slips and bumps that can ruin delicate woods. Most models also include a rubber safety nose to protect the wood from friction.
