DeWalt Brushless Nailer- How did this happen?

Post by Argyll »

Happy New Year to you all.

I eventually got round to changing the springs on my DCN692 Brushless nailer. However I couldn't get the nailer to power on. I reseated the springs several times without success.

What I did note is when I removed the unit that houses the nails the unit powered on.

Further inspection and I think I found the reason why the unit is not powering on. I've noticed the part that houses the spring seems to be twisted (see attached photo). Is this meant to be like this or is it faulty?

No idea how this happened as it's been well looked after.
