Craftsman Framing Nailer


I have this nailer and it doesn't get much use. Today when I was using it to work on a step rail for the bar it kept double firing in the single nail mode and if I put it into multi nail mode, it only fires once and won't release unless I let go of the trigger. Anyone know what this may be? I would rather buy a good nailer but I can't justify it when I use it so rarely ( I still have the original box of nails that I bought with it)

OK, I'm an idiot. As soon as I sent the post, I realized what the problem is. The cam that controls the single & double mode must be backwards. I checked the switch and sure enough, the plastic switch is cracked and can be spun around.
