Stapler works intermittantly

Stapler was working then stopped, no noise nothing. After more triggering worked for a few staples then stopped again. Not the power source or cord, plugged directly into working wall outlet, cord appears intact. 2 years old, very lightly used. Current project is stapling poly to soft wood (pine). Using Arrow staples 1/4 6mm.

Have noted other online complaints of this problem. Only loading rows of staples that are all attached to each other, not pieces. It is not jammed (was jammed once but then it clicks when triggered, jam cleared after taking it apart, worked for a while after that).

Any suggestions? Lauren

    We were working on a Christmas project with our stapler. It worked just a short time. I've had this stapler for a couple of years, but never used it. It is not clogged or jammed. When I depress the trigger, a soft firing sound is made. It's as if the actuator spring isn't fully being released. Steve

If not the power source or cord, the next activation point would be the trigger. Does the stapler make any sort of noise when the trigger is depressed? What type and model stapler is it?

I posted just yesterday about this problem. Today I started to take the gun apart and then thought twice. I made sure it was unplugged, turned it upside down and tapped it against the table. Guess what....I plugged it back in and pulled the trigger and it worked. Seems that two staples were jammed so tight that I couldn't see them. It just goes to show you, when all else fails, bang on it and it just might fix the problem....Steve

How do I get this stapler to work when it has the correct staples in it?


Try to take all the staples out then put a small amount of "Two in one oil" as it is very fine oil. Once you have done this wipe off the excess oil if you have a lot spill out wipe with a rag & use the rag to wipe over the underside of one row of staples.
leave overnight & try to use this again with the slightly oiled staples this should remove any oil left then see if this does the trick. (Note I hope you have the correct staples for the machine of course.) Best Wishes Malcolm.

Been using stapler for past hour suddenley trigger


Could be a bad power cord: broken wire at the switch; a bad switch; the stapler needs lubrication; or the stapler is shot.

I have a bostitch stanley desk top stapler model # 02210, it will not activate the staple when you put the paper in it, does that little trigger in there have a spring on it because it will not return to...


The case of the stapler is glued together. To open the case requires carefully sawing it along the seams. The paper switch is spring loaded but the spring is built into the switch. It is possible that something is jamming it.

Crown Stapler stopped shooting staples


Did you look for a staple jammed in the driver mechanism? If the piston is stuck down, it won't respond to the trigger. Try smacking the top of the stapler onto a wooden bench to see if the force will release the piston. Make sure that you use air-tool oil for lubrication inside the tool. Hope this gets you running!

When pressing the trigger to fire a staple, all I get is an air leak from the area of the trigger.


They all leak a little on firing. Is it a big blast of air or just a hiss? All guns have a 'safety' device that keeps them from firing unless you follow a set pattern. You must push the gun down where you intend to put the staple which releases the safety before you pulll the trigger. You must then release the trigger move the stapler off the piece push it back down again before you can fire another staple. You can get (free) frrom the manufacture a rapid fire shoe and trigger that allows you to hold down the trigger and bounce the stapler along your work shooting merrily away.

My Swingline model 520e jams every other time I staple.


There were a few staples left in the cartridge when the stapler stopped working. I went thru all the steps on bottom for stapler after changing the cartridge with two different cartridges. It makes the noise and puts marks in the paper, but no staples come out of it.

Nothing happens when you load paper to staple. It is a swingline electric stapler model 270


assuming it is plugged into a good power source and turned on (no offense intended, just getting the obvious out of the way - and I've fallen victim to the obvious myself before), look inside where you put the paper - is there a trigger mechanism? Most electric staplers have them (the paper hits the trigger and the stapler fires), and some allow you to set the sensitivity of the trigger. If yours allows you to adjust the sensitivity, try adjusting it. If it's not adjustable, the trigger probably needs to be replaced (under heavy use, they may need to be replaced every year or so).
