Stanley Air Tools & Compressors - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

This can be caused by a couple of things:
- Material is too hard and causing the nail to stress
- Nails are too long causing the same thing
- End of driver is worn or chipped causing the driver to ride over the nail and pop the nose open.

It could be the o-rings for the feed piston but a bad feed spring will also cause problems. that would be the easiest place to try if you can find a spring. Many of the parts for these are becoming NLA (no longer available) from Bostitch. One problem they had in the feed piston area was chipping the nose where the orign seals the piston stem. There is a small bumper on the inside of the feed piston cap that goes bad and allows the piston to travel to far back which slams the feeder against the lower housing and can chip it where the piston goes through.

Use Bostitch sb32 oil or another pneumolube and this is an example option to use an oil nebulizer between the compressor and most mechanical airtools.

Talking in the past tense about compressor working fine before. Is it working fine now" If it is, pumping the air tank full, and air not coming from the end of the hose, the end tool valve maybe jammed, or the hose plugged. (sometimes the inner lining of the hose separates from the reinforcing mesh and clogs the hose)
To test this theory, take the hose off from the tank (when no air is in the tank), start the compressor and see if the air is pumping out freely. If it is then the compressor is indeed fine. Take the tool of the end of the hose, then reconnect the hose and restart the compressor. This will tel you if either the hose or the end tool is at fault.

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.

it has a reset button somewhere and usually a fuse. take the cover off (unplugged) and look for a red reset button or a fuse. if it keeps blowing the fuse or tripping the reset then it will likely need service by a service center.

Hello, Sean -

I hope I am safe to assume you need to find a replacement knob for a Stanley brand Pro-Ceramic Utility Heater with Pivot Power Model 675919. If so, I refer you to Lasko, the company which manufactures that heater under the Stanley brand name. This is the number to call the Lasko Parts and Accessories Customer Service Department to find out if they supply (sell) replacement knobs for your unit:
800-233-0268 (Monday - Friday, 8am-5pm, Eastern Time zone)

Best wishes

Try to remove the hose, then see if air comes out when you switch it on.

check for a failed start/run capacitor
otherwise take the motor to a repair shop or get a new motor

At the end where you attach the air hose is the nailer imprinted with the words "add oil"? If so; add a few drops of oil designed for air nailers.
Also check to make sure no nails are stuck in the tip of the nailer and the return mechanism is reset.
