AIRBOW®

Troubleshooting

Using your AIRBOW® FRAMER

  • Check the Cylinder Pressure Release valve is closed
  • Check your AIRBOW® FRAMER is topped up with Air
  • Check your AIRBOW® FRAMER is re-cocked (to charge the Firing Chamber)
  • Check you have nails loaded
  • Has the Nail magazine locked out (at last 5-6 nails)? More nails required
  • Make sure you have the Nose Safety contact fully depressed on target timber
  • Paper issue. Some paper collated nails will deposit small amounts of paper into the guiding components of the magazine during the firing process. If you are experiencing dry fires, do not continue to fire the tool. Check to see if any paper is visible at the top of the magazine. If easily cleared, do so.
  • If not easily cleared, remove all nails from the magazine. Depress the safety relief valve to release pressure from the firing mechanism and then clear any pieces of paper or glue that have been deposited (refer to Clearing a Nail Jam).
  • Try firing a nail into your target timber as it may already be re-cocked and ready to fire
  • Some debris may have entered the automated re-cock system. Your gun requires inspection by the Airbow Service Team
  • Check the pressure in your AIRBOW® FRAMER. You may need to top up with air
  • Check Cylinder Release Valve is closed completely (if air is escaping the Firing Chamber won’t refill quickly enough with air)
  • Check correct collated nails are being used
  • The timber may be very dense
  • Your Cylinder Release Valve may not be closed completely
  • You may have a problem with the Internal air line – Open Cylinder release valve to empty all the air from the onboard cylinder. Your gun requires inspection by the Airbow Service Team
  • This generally relates to the collated nails you are using. The top or bottom edge may be rough. Try a different brand collated nail.
  • Tighten fastening screws with an allen key
  • For “end of day” depressurising press the Safety Pressure Release button on back of gun. This will depressurise the Firing Chamber so that there is no pressure to fire a nail (You will still have pressure in the on-board canister)
  • To empty the entire contents of the on-board canister open the Cylinder Pressure Release valve located on the handle
  • Refer to the AIRBOW® FRAMER Quick Guide for full details
  • Ensure the AIRBOW® FRAMER is topped up with compressed air. Pull back the Re-Cock Lever. Pull slowly until you feel a second movement. This will re-pressurise the Firing Chamber and enable a nail to be fired in normal operation
  • Refer to the AIRBOW® FRAMER Quick Guide for full details
  • Refer to the TXES012M High Pressure Compressor manual
