Powerfast strap gun for romex misfiring

One strap gun misfires badly, it's relatively new and in good condition.

Bought another, it doesn't work right, and it's brand new.

Is it the guns, or the straps (staples)? I'm fed up with Powerfast...great concept, used the strap gun successfully for years, now the quality seems lacking.

I have found that not loading the entire strip of staples stops the jamming. I load only 10-12 that seems to work well.

The staple must be perpendicular to the striker for the gun to work without jamming. It doesn't matter how the gun is held on the wire, angled, but assure that the wire does not push against the plastic of the staple at an angle or it will TIP the staple and the hammer will slip off the staple.
I staple by holding the wire onto the wood with one hand just ahead of the staple - no more jams.

Misfire in cylinder #6. Could be bad spark plug, spark plug wire, cop coil, bad intake/exhaust valve, clogged fuel injector or piston/cylinder problem. What's the year, make, model, engine and have you been following the recommended maintenance schedule for new plugs?

May still be a bad coil that just hasn't reached the number of misfires to set a trouble code.

I have a cylinder 6 misfire on my 00 cadillac deville. do u think the plugs need to ne replaced?


Usually, if you only have 1 cylinder misfiring, you have either a bad spark plug or bad spark plug wire. If you replace the cylinder 6 spark plug and still have a misfire condition, replace your spark plug wires. If replacing the plug and wires doesn't fix the problem, replace the ignition coil.

Mazda Miata: Replaced the coil pack because of misfires, that fixed misfires. Now the check Engine light comes on and the code was related to Cat Convertor. The car get hot around the console and gear...


The cat converter was trying to burn all of the excess fuel that was being sent out of the exhaust due to the misfire, got way to hot and melted the inside of the cat. I experimented with this while in tech school. You can burn up a cat in about 15 minutes at around 3000 rpm with a single cylinder misfire. I also work at a shop that specializes in miatas, and have seen this before. Get a new catalytic converter.

Powerfast staple gun works poorly


Gun is most likely a multi strike gun. Try not moving the body of the stapler and pushing the strike lever again, repeat if necessary.

Misfire code


Many things can cause a misfire,but basic mechanical checks or tests can be made relatively inexpensively.Compression testing the cylinders with a compression gauge will verify the general condition of the engine's piston rings and valve sealing capabilities.A leakdown test is similar to a compression check except that a leak down test is directed more towards verifying specifically the valve's sealing capabilities.A valve can burn or a bad seal occur between valve and seat...causing a misfire.Valves and piston rings are mechanical in nature,but there are many other possible causes.Vacuum leak,ignition problems,fuel problems,sensor problem,etc etc.Good luck.
