Nailer is shooting air out of trigger, is not releasing brad


Sounds like the head valve. Remove the head cap take out the head valve, clean, re-fit and give it a few drops of air line oil. Then give it a try. Good luck.

On the trigger of my Bostich Spiral load nail gun AND my Bostick trim nail gun air is leaking profusely from the trigger. Nail guns were not in use for about a year. When I first used them this weekend,...


A nail gun works on compressed air.
When you hook the air hose to the gun it fills a cylinder with air pressure.
When you pull the trigger. the cylinder pressure is released onto a firing pin that shoots the nail.
The air pressure line is also connected to the trigger and therefore the trigger has to be sealed.

When ever using a nail gun, you add a bit of gun oil in the back of the gun (not 3-in-1motor oil, it has to be non-detergent gun oil)

If you haven't used the gun in a while, it is best to oil up the gun and let the oil run down into the gun.
If you use anything but gun oil, the seals will give out.

Your trigger seal has given out. It is probably an 'O' ring. You can access it by taking it apart. Look for the O ring.
Bostich makes re-build kits for the different guns that you can buy on-line.
Back when I was in construction, there were several nail gun shops that sold and serviced nail guns, and sold nails to the contractors. I don't know if that business model is still active or if you have to send the guns to Bostich service center.

How do you disengage the trigger, hammer. withour dry firing


If you are asking what I think you are, pull and hold the hammer back with your thumb (it is spring loaded so don't let it slip), squeeze the trigger and hold it depressed, "Slowly" EASE the hammer forward until it is back to it's original position, then release the trigger. I hope this answered your question.

Air leaks arond trigger when depressed, but no nail fires.


Where does the air leak out from? If it leaks from the trigger DeWalt makes a trigger valve assembly part # 641006-00 list 8.89 BUT if it leaks from other areas we have to look into it deeper. If it is just the trigger valve let me know and I will give you instructions how to remove and install the new one.

I have a bostich framing nail gun and as soon as i hook my air hose up to it the air comes directly out through where the driver is, dont even have to pull trigger, can u help, need gun operating to make...


The o-rings need to be replaced and/or the trigger assembly is defective. Look around at local lumber yards for a "Bostich days" promotion. Often with the purchase of a box of nails, the Bostich rep will "service" up to 2 guns for free. If this is not an option for you because of time, you can purchase the o-ring kit and replace the rings yourself. This is not a difficult repair. Also, be sure to lubricate the guns with pneumatic oil frequently as this will keep the rings lubtricated and prevent them from drying out and leaking.

Hope this helps,

Dan

Nails won't shoot


18 guage nailer has a very thin driver and plastic cylinder which bends or breaks easily. Remove the head noting all the parts in the head and remove the piston which should be at the top of the cylinder. Check for broken or bent shaft. Most likely broken and jammed in cylinder. Parts are not expensive. Check WWW.toolpartsdirect.com for diagram and parts

Jammed makita an923 nail gun


On most all nailguns when the trigger is activated air pressure is released from the headvalve causing the headvalve to open and fire the piston. If air leaks through the headvalve orings or through the headgasket port to headvalve, it will not fire. Try applying light grease to headvalve orings and make sure that headgasket is sealing around vent hole. If it fires then replace orings in headvalve for long term repair. Secondary problem is worn safety parts and trigger or trigger pin. If these parts are worn the trigger will not push the trigger valve pin all the way in when you bump fire the gun. With air supply disconnected, apply pressure to safety while depressing the trigger and check thet the pin is moving all the way into the trigger valve. Adjust or replace as necessary. Enjoy
