Remove the cap (top where the air exhausts after each shot) off the head of the nailer. After removing all nails from the magazine, take a wooden dowel or end of a hammer and push the driver down to the bottom of the nailer. Does it move? If it does not, you have either:
•A stuck nail or staple which has jammed against the driver. Solution: Take an object similar in shape to the driver and try to drive the driver back up by inserting this into the end where the nails are shot from and then clearing the jam.
•A broken driver. Look to see if the piston top of the driver is aligned in the cylinder or is it cocked to one side
. Solution: Remove and replace broken driver assby.
•Your trigger valve is defective. Solution: Remove and replace trigger valve (if sold separately)
