Rather than try to repair it or look into it, call the dealer or take it back to him as you will invalidate your warranty if you do anything to the unit, and that is not worth it. Let the dealer worry about it.

My bostitch bt1855 nail gun worked fine, until it started to dry fire 2inch nails. No problem with firing quarter inch nails. Any ideas?


Have you serviced it recently? and is the gas in date? The pistons do dry out and have to be oiled with special oil.

I own about a one year old Bostitchmodel BT1855 18 ga nailer. When I pull the trigger I hear the compressed air but the hammer does not come down and drive the nail.


Usually when you hear the pop of the compressed air and the driver does not move indicates that the driver blade is bent, broken, or stuck due to debris. Remove head and pull cylinder to examine. Parts are not expensice and are available as kit including driver and cylinder with related parts or just the driver. from WWW.bostitch.com or even ebay. If driver is bent, you can probably make adjustment and get more life. Good luck

Leaks air around the trigger. Doesn't shoot the nails at 100psi, I think it is a F28WW Bostitch shoots the 2'' and 31/2'' nails


sounds like the trigger valve has a broken o ring and would need replaced. you can go to Bostitch.com and order one for it, they are not that hard to install.

Brand new brad nailer shoots 2 nails and then it blows air


first make sure that you are using the right guage nails and if so I would return it to the place of purchase for replacement., the blowing of air could indicate a jammed nail in the track, look for that first and make sure the driver is retracting fully.

My brad nailer will not shoot any nails. When I press the trigger, I can hear a small puff of air.


it sounds like the piston/driver might be stuck or the firing valve is malfunctioning. there are 4 screws to remove the top cap and you can see if the driver is damaged. Also before removing check to make sure there is not a nail jammed in the nose assembly. This tool is good for breaking the pin on the piston.

How do you safely remove jammed nail gun?


Not sure exactly what Bostitch framer model you have, but if it is powered by compressed air, as long as you remove the air hose from the nail gun, there should be no risk of the nail gun firing while you remove the jammed nail. There should be a way to access the driver area from the top of the nail gun, even via a latch or a couple screws. Remove the top part of the driver area and that should give you access to the jammed nail, which you can remove. Use long nose pliers or something similar if the nails are really stuck.
