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

Handle stuck in locked position


One of the screws - furthest away from where the staples exit - has a nut on it... Remove the nut, then - using pliers - back out the screw. When I did this, the spring returned, a bent staple fell out and once re-assembled I could use the stapler again (for a few turns). It seems like the stapler is VERY sensitive to bounce during the stapling, you must hold it very tight (and flat) to the material so that the staple doesn't jam inside the stapler. Lousy product.

The staples won't go fully into the Wood


1. The wood may be too hard for the staples to penetrate

2. The stapler drive spring may have ghotten weak

3. You may not be holding the stapler nose firmly against the wood while stapling

Got a staple jammed can't get out . don't know to take it apart.


This can happen all the time... first remove the slide-in tensioner which pushes against the staples. Remove the single bolt with lock nut which is towards the rear of the stapler. Now you can pivot the staple rail down and out of the gun. Just remove any twisted staples from the rail. Now reassemble the rail by positioning the front of the rail to go into the small slots in the front of the stapler body and re-attach the bolt. You may now reload the staples and tensioner and continue working. Takes just a minute or 2.

Instruction book for Arrow ETF50P staple gun . lost the instructions and can't figure out how to insert the staples in the gun


Look at the rear of the stapler. Push in then down on the stapler tensioner to release it from the rear of the gun. Slide the tensioner out. Next slide the new staples over the rail and into the gun with points down. Slide the spring tensioner back in and connect it to the stapler by maneuvering its clip down and then up.

How do the staples stay in place in my stanley 1/4" stapler? They slide back and forth and therefore aren't in place for the stapler to work?


There should be a pusher that is attached to a spring. If the spring broke, or the pusher is missing the staples will not stay in place.

If you can locate a model number on the tool, you go to bostitch.com to find the parts you may need

T50 stapler gun it worked for about 15 applications then just stopped, it's not jammed, it has staples loaded properly & firing off staples repeatedly doesn't work nothing comes out??? Why would it just...


It sounds like a manufactor defect in wire harness or premature silinoid burn out,
or you simply need to make sure you plug into and outlet that works. Could be cheap but not worth repair,return as defect if possiable and buy new one before.

Please rate. Thanks jj505

Multiple nails are ejected


its all about the pressure you apply...to solve this try pushing down then firing....i know its a pain and slows work a bit but it'll save you staples and from possibly firing THROUGH the shingle...pulling them up is enough of a pain anyway... also see if you can tighten the tip of the gun...that should make it less responsive, tighten the trigger as well...good luck

Tr250 does not drive brad nails all the way down.


Jason,

I think this is typical of these staplers/nailers. I bought a lighter model Stanley the first time and had this problem. I took it back and exchanged it for the heaviest Stanley they had at Home Depot and had the same effect. It drove the stapler a little deeper but not all the way.

I did find that if I put all the down pressure on the stapler right on the edge where the staple comes out and then pull the trigger it would drive the staple almost all the way in. I think that there is a recoil effect (like with a gun) when you pull the trigger and the staple enters the wood. Try this. it will help.


Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh PS Please leave a rating if appropriate Thanks for using FixYa

Stanley Pneu Roof Stapler Troubleshooting


Sorry for the delayed response, I just found this one...

The issue with depth is usually one of 2 things:

1) Insufficient pressure (bad regulator on compressor or incorrect setting).
2) Bad seals within the gun.

When was the gun last serviced? Have you looked at the O-rings for any signs of damage? All it takes is a little leakage of pressure and the plunger won't have enough thrust to set the staple as expected.
