You will either have to get a removal tool to take it out or drill/cut it out carefully.

If you have a long enough shaft you can grab onto it with a pipe wrench or vice grip while using an open end on the large nut. You may be able to get it into a bench vice as well. These quite often have lock tight on them as well. Heating may help you out but you will have to move quick.

If the light keeps flashing then the battery is not charged enough to fire the gun. recharge the battery or buy a new one if it continues.

Had the same problem with mine. Remove the 3 screws on top and remove the lid. on mine the firing pin assembly was jammed. If the roller seems to be holding the pin carriage too tight then you need to prise up the spring mechanism over the carriage. To do this go to the end at the back of the machine and insert a screwdriver between the top carriage and the frame. prise gently and it should pop up. the firing pin should now move freely

Modified stator field

dw712 crosscut saw miter saw i have had a problem with the motor stator electric field and i was surprised by the MODIFICATION not seen if you don,t know about that this machine has undergone by the later builds of the same type .
Because the difference was not to find in the diagram and ordernumber of this stator field , because the older model has only 2 connecting wires,, and the later modified model has a stator field with 4 connecting wires . it has also a different ordernumber and is also a little bit more expensive.
So be warned when ordering a statorfield check the stator after 2 or 4 stator contacts advance order , it can has also be modified in the usa on the same way . !! i have also have asked for made changes on a diagram by Stanley/Dewalt (England) in between 1 hour they have made an change for it , for a powertool that was missing a type of [ model DC837 type 1] type 10 and 11 where the only ones to see there but type 1 was missing and the switch for that model was a problem but they have special made a kit for it because of the modified switch .

the vanes in the small air motor are stuck
try a small amount ( couple of drops ) of sewing machine oil in the air inlet and see it it will spin
you may need to bump the pad on the bench to jar the shaft to start rotating

It could be something as simple as the brushes

If you release the belt that would give you more room to get the cord out. When you releas the belt it brings the rollers together which loosens the belt.

I've been using dewalt tools exclusively for 15 years. I've fixed numerous drivers, sawzals, etc. I've learn 3 things over and over again. 1 cleaning & lubing are grossly under rated, 2 if one part goes the rest are not far behind & 3 it has never cost me more than $20 to $30 bucks more to have the repair place rebuild it than to fix it myself. And most times they give you a new bulk packaged tool as a rebuilt. My recommendation: have it rebuilt...enjoy the new tool.

how old is the battery, test and recharge, if ok make sure is well oiled. May have to have it serviced if it is still low on torque.

It may already have a nail jammed in it. You may have to take off the front face that holds the firing pin. There should be one or two screws in front just above where the nails come out. If you remove these there will be a plate that comes off and then you can remove a jammed nail. Look first to see if there is a jam before doing this. Also maybe you have the wrong guage nails or maybe you don't have proper air pressure. Hope this helps.

The bit holder resides in the clutch housing which has a collar with a ball bearing that the notch in the bit holder snaps into. It would seem that the ball bearing has slipped out of the cooler on the clutch housing, therefore nothing is locking it into placed. If you need a diagram, let me know.

Make sure the brads are not too small for the gun.

Dewalt Tools &... | Answered on Mar 18, 2015

Could be one of 3 things - I'll give them in order of most common to least:
1) Brushes - check your brushes, if they are very worn or not contacting the armature well they could be the culprit.
2) Switch - tools with a brake have 1 set of normally open contacts & 1 set of normally closed contacts (the configuration is usually stamped on the switch itself) You will need to disconnect the leads to the switch and test it with a continuity tester - if the switch is your problem the normally closed contacts will show open.
3) Field - lastly (least common but possible) is the field, tools with a brake have 2 separate windings in the field. If the field is the issue there will be one winding in the field that will not have continuity (usually the smaller wires in the field) Again, you will need to disconnect the wiring to the field and test with a continuity tester.
