Question about Dewalt Tools & Hardware - Others
Looking to see what parts I need. Thanks.
SOURCE: Nailer jams with 1-5/8 brads
It sound to me that the 1 5/8 brads are not 18 guage but probably 16 guage and they will not work. Double check them first before going any further. You can usually lay them next to the smaller ones that work and see the size difference, if not let me know and I will dig deeper.

SOURCE: 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.

Open the top where the plunger is...remove the jam and push the plunger back..close up the gun and you should be fine. Make sure you disconnect your air hose first!!!

Most likely stuck driver or headvalve. Easy fix. Remove the head, pull out the driver and check for bent shaft, if ok, lube and reinstall. Next remove the valve within the head, lube and reinstall. Replace parts as meeded. Retest. If it still does not fire, could be that the safety foot is not pushing the firing pin all the way up into the valve. Easy to check. Remove the nails, remove the trigger to expose the firing valve pin. Dry fire the gun by quickly depressing the valve pin with finger. If it fires, adjust safety foot as needed.
