dewalt nailgun jamming "constantly"

Brushes can definitely cause this but unless you feel fairly confident in pulling the unit apart, it may be more cost effective to just replace it. It would be unusual to see the brushes wear out so quickly but I do not know how much you use it or the load you put it under. I have a Rigid that I use a LOT and have had it for probably 5 - 6 years and it is holding strong. These things just tend to last. I would contact DeWalt and see if you can have them send you new brushes first and then go for it; the worst is that you ultimately have to replace it (which you might have had to anyway) and the upshot is that you fixed it yourself and now have many more years and sawdust sneezes in your future.

is this a gas cartridge type of nailer? It could be the effects of gravity on the spray nozzle. try pushing down in normal position but dont fire it. quickly move to ceiling then try firing. I am not a fan of this type of nailer as they are problematic and finicky.

Dewalt Tools &... | Answered on Feb 11, 2015

I think you have to call the service center on this one,

Dewalt Tools &... | Answered on Feb 09, 2015

No - this nailer must be oiled (5-10 drops directly in air fitting before each use)

A few things to check - some may seem overly obvious but humor me:
1) Check your nails - make sure they are the correct angle and gauge
2) Check to make sure there is not a piece of a broken nail in the nose
3) Check the driver blade & insure it is not bent or chipped
4) Make sure the nail carrier spring is pushing nails forward and isn't getting hung up

Remove 2 screws on metal front cover.
Remove screws holding handle halves together and carefully separate (Be careful because trigger spring can fly out on you).
This will expose the belt and allow replacement. There is a spring loaded idler pulley so removal & replacing is easy.

Dewalt DC618KA... | Answered on Feb 07, 2015

That would usually be performed by a spring - is it OK?

I think that model is on a ring internally so there isnt a way to do like the bigger ones, you would have to take the screws out and take in half and you will the the brushes and can replace.

you are going ot need to take it apart and see where it is corroded. there is most likely corrosion around the power supply to the laser itself.

The clutch is defective , you can get replacement parts from dewalt. There are several dewalt service centers in the US

Dewalt Tools &... | Answered on Jan 07, 2015

Use an Allen wrench to loosen the two or 4 bolts on nose of the gun. Take the plate off and remove offending nail.

Did the light on the charger indicate that it was charging? (Most also have a "replace battery" or similar light.)

If so, and the drill keeps beeping...since it's new don't bother monkeying with it. Just take it back to the store and have them replace it. Dealing with a warranty repair will leave you without a tool for some length of time.
