This may seem silly but gun tip will not engage if right amount of fasners or not installed. Try adding more nails.

I have a paslode model IM250II 16 ga straight finish nailer that I bought used the gun fan and motor runs whin the trigger is pulled but it does not fire when the tip is pressed no pop no puff nothing I...


Fan running when trigger pressed is normal however to make it fire you need to press on the work probe first and the fan should start running, at this point the gas should be injected and pressing the trigger should create the spark to fire the gun, if all works as above but the gun won't fire check the gas, the metering valve on the can should have a yellow ring and when pressing the can nozzle on a hard surface, gas should be released, if not the can either has (a) insufficient gas, (b) the nozzle is not correctly fitted (c) the metering valve is faulty, if the can emits gas the gun will need to be checked for spark and the seals will need checking

I have a pasload im 250 ii straight finish nailer when I pull the trigger the motor runs with out the tip being pressed is this normal and when I press the tip and pull the trigger it does not fire


Yes, it is normal for the fan to run when the trigger is pulled. Does the fan start when you depress the nose?
If not, it most likely is a bent contact element, or a bad head switch.

The trigger doesn't engaged. New cell, battery charged, fan works, full of nails, nothing jams.


First thing is to check date on the bottom of fuel cell. Make sure fuel cell is before that date. Now when you depress the safety and the fan comes on listen very closly at the top of the tool. If you hear a snap. Problem is solved. The plug wire is shorting to the head and is not getting into the chamber to fire the tool. Some times if you turn the lights out you can see were it is shorting. Many times it is were the wire goes on to the plug. If this is the case a little dilectric grease will take care of the problem.I remove the plug wire (you will need to remove the four cap screws on top) put the grease around the spark plug and reinstall my wire. reassemble and test. Good luck

Nail gun problem


This is a bottom fire tool. (NV83A2) You need to hold the trigger down and then as you place the nailer to the wood the safety will depress and it will fire once. This is usually done in one, swift action. If you do this in the opposite way by placing the tool to the wood and then pulling the trigger they often will double fire.

Passlode im250ii


Not much information to go on. first thing to check is the date on the fuel cell. On the bottom of the fuel cell you will find a use before this date. fuel goes bad. next is tomake sure the battery is fully charged (light on tool should be green when you put battery in). With fastners in tool depress on wood. Now you should hear the fan start. Pull trigger and it should fire. If t doesn't, make sure there is not a jambed nail. Open quick release on front of tool. Remove jambed nail push driver back inside tool with small screw driver. Try to fire tool again, you may have to lift the tool again off the wood and press back down. when doing this you are putting fuel in the chamber and you might have to do it more than once. Hope this helps. please give more information if it des not. Good luck

Gun will not shoot nails completely;no matter what wood,thickness,etc.they drive all but 1/2"


May be due to broken tip. Easy to check. Remove nails and leave door open. With door open, lightly tap the nose of the gun against coiled rubber hose or soft wood. The driver should stay at top position. If driver falls to bottom of the cylinder, replace piston oring. Now press nose of the gun against old coiled up air hose or soft wood and squeeze and hold trigger. The gun will fire and the driver should stay in the down position untill you release the trigger (if not single fire trigger, if single fire trigger remove trigger and press the trigger pin with finger). While the driver is down, make sure that the tip extends past the nose about 1/4 inch (if air leaks past the nose in this position, replace lower bumper). If the driver does not extend past the nose, replace driver. Good luck

My Stanley Bostitch SB-1850BN brad nailer will not sink the brad. It leaves it about an eighth of an inch above the surface. Adjusting the head using the adjustment thumbwheel does not help. Any...


You may have a broken tip or bent driver. Remove tha nails from gun and dry fire into a piece of wood. You should see a nice little indention. If you continue to hold the trigger and the nailer against wood after firing, the driver will stay in the lower position for examination. Just fire into wood and keep gun against wood while holding trigger and lean gun to side untill you see the tip. If you see broken tip or no tip order repair kit that includes driver, or driver alone from www.bostitch.com or ebay. Good luck

My hitachi nailer wont fire


Start with the basics:
First check that the butane (or whatever gas is used) canister is full. If empty, put in a new one.

Second check to make sure your battery is fully charged to be able to fire the spark to work the nail gun. If not get the battery charged and/or replaced as needed.

Third make sure all of the safeties are working properly and that you have them engaged to the piece of wood you are nailing when you try the trigger.

If beyond that it does not work it could be a bad trigger, a bad safety switch, or even a bad connection from the battery to the device.

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

Nail Guns Safety problem


Professional-grade varieties are automatic, and fire a nail directly upon pulling the trigger. A semi-automatic nail gun is more appropriate for beginners, since it requires a two step process: pull the trigger and then tap the barrel against the wood. This safety feature protects the user from accidentally firing a nail gun and injuring himself or others.
