First - the air pressure has to be high enough - check the regulator on the tank to make sure it is delivering in excess of 60-70 psi (which I am sure you have already done).

If you have dry fired these guns (i.e. shot them off with no nails in them while you were lubricating them maybe) the mechanism inside could be damaged. I had that happen to one of my nailers (same brand). That was when I learned not to dry fire them...

Since both of them are not working though I would be more inclined to look at the air supply first.

Try another brand of nails -- maybe your gun doesn't like those. Also, blow any dirt out of the nail magazine.

Dc628 wont drive nails all the way


Its all about power. If you have air pressure and its the right nail it will shoot. If its oak or maple nope it most likely cant drive it up. If your pressure switch has a 90-120 spread, it will work at 120 and fail at 90. You sometimes can good results by bumping it up 5# or so without the pop off loosing its cool.

The pin on my Dewalt dc616 cordless finish nail gun is ceasing up. How can i lubricate it? can i spray silicon into the nose of the gun?


Hello, W/D here.

The better way is to disconnect the air line from the gun, and place several drops of light oil in the gun while holding the trigger down. Oil daily. Then, re-connect the hose, and fire a few nails into scrap wood.
Another trick is to spray your nails with WD-40 before you load them into the gun.
Best regards, --W/D--

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.
