Ryobe first strike 18g finish nail gun wont shoot. the led

This answer was rated:

ryobe first strike 18g finish nail gun wont shoot. the led blinks slowly. warning label states to take it to have it repaired with no other information other than the problem is internal

Hi .......................how old is the nailer and how long has it been in use before this happened ?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
The gun was bought used, its about 2 years old so its not covered under warranty

what probably is happening is dust and debris is collecting and clogging or slowing down the drive piston..........there is the cover for that on the front of the machine............remove the battery and unhinge this cover..........you will find tracks that you could clean out with a compressed dust off and then with just a couple of drops of oil lubricate the track at the top and down toward the bottom some........close the cover and at the very top put a little more at the top ..........make sure there are no nails ...............replace the battery ................engage the safety point it downwards.............and dry shoot the gun so the piston will finish lubrication and will extend down to where it should

Let me know

Thanks
