  • ridgid nailer double firing

    I have Ridgid round head framing nailer about 4 months old.

    I have the trigger set on multiple firing mode. When in this mode I am getting double fires when I am trying to nail only nail. The double fire happens so fast that most times the nailer doesn't pick up the second nail.

    Any suggestions.
    I am trying to find my owner manual but am not putting my hands on it yet.

    Thanks

    Jeff

    Ridgid only has one round head framing nailer, the model R350RHA. They also have a clipped head nail version, the model $350CHA,

              I have a Porter Cable FR350 Round head framing nailer (don't know if its the same as the Ridgid but the part #s sure seem similar) that I was having the same problem with. I found that the problem was my technique, not the nailer. To prevent double fires, I had to be a bit more aggressive in the way I shoved it into the board. If I used too light of pressure, the recoil would kick the gun back just far enough to retrigger it. With mine, I was ending up with double nails about 30% of the times it double fired. When I started using a deliberate push all the way to the board and not letting it bounce, I quit having the problem. I didn't seem to have as much problem with 3" nails as I did with 2 1/2", but I think that was because I subconsciously was pushing harder with the heavier nails.
              Just a thought

                Good thought and likely correct for Jeff's problem. I have seen similar issues with my R350CHA and my Bostitch ridge runner roofer. Slam it like you stole it, no love taps.
