Nails will not move into position after first nail in rack is nailed. Nail feed spring too weak? Nails defective?

Most likely the driver is not returning to top of cylinder, thus driver blade does not allow nails to move into position.
easy to check. With air line removed, insert a thin rod that fits into nose of gun and push up the driver. If the driver moves up, needs orings or seals, if driver is all they up, then problem with rails or feeder spring. Good luck with repair.

My paslode model 350s nail gun only shoots every other nail or so. Sometimes it will only fire once every six or seven times I fire it. Any suggestios?

Replace the O rings if its not firing... if its dry firing (firing w/o a nail) check the feeder system/spring

Ism coil roofing nailer will not hold nails in striking chamber after they advance

The feeder area of the nailer incorporates small levers on both sides of the nails. On the body side, the spring loaded feeder retracts and pulls forward the first nail. On the latch side small spring loaded arm/s hold the nails in place once they are pulled forward. Open the latch and push on both the feeder and the retanier for firm spring tension. On some nailers, due to wear, the grippers on the feeder tend to wear off allowing the nail to slip out of place. On other nailers, the feeder arm/shaft tends to wear and alows the feeder to move out of alignment (check if the actual feeder arm can move from side to side). The feeder shaft should move forward and back with no side to side movement. Finally, some coil nails are welded together with too stiff of wire. After the first nail is driven, the second nail will have one or two strands of wire pointing out not allowing the nails to move into position. After first shot, the two wires should be cut off or bent down out of the way. Good luck.

Paslode im350 fires every time,but nails dont come out

Unless you have the wrong nails or a problem with the feeder and/or feeder spring it is probably dirty and the driver is hanging up on the cylinder. These tools need to be cleaned and lubed after using them for some time. If you look on Paslode's website there is a manual that explains how to do it. There are also videos on YouTube that show this. It is somewhat complicated and the tool has to be disassembled quite a bit. If you don't feel comfortable doing this work then you may want to want a servicing dealer that repairs these tools. There is a rubber o-ring on the head and a filter on the top that should be replaced too. Here is a link to the cleaning guide.

Nailer will shoot a nail, but will not foward the next nail. Gun is new maybe 15 lbs of nails or so.

If the nail will not advance, easy test will determine problem. Open door and remove the nails. Lightly tap the nose of the gun against coiled rubber hose or soft wood with door open. If the driver falls to bottom, the piston oring needs to be replaced. The driver should stay at top of cylinder. Next pull back the feeder to rear position and check for tension. The feeder should spring back towards you when you push. Finally, the check paws on the door should return to extended positon when you push on them. Replace springs as needed. Connect air to gun and rapidly bump fire the gun against rubber. The feeder should move back and forward just as quickly as the driver moves. Good luck

I keep reading how my Porter Cable FN250B has a quick release nose to clear jammed nails, but I cannot figure out how to open it.

My fn250b has a small tab/lever just below the nail feeder (with no nails in the gun the lever will be just below the nail pusher). Push on the lever with your thumb and the nose will open. This lever is held in place with one screw. If the tab/lever breaks off at the screw or if the screw falls out the lever and its spring will fall off and the front nose will just be loose/ nails will be pushed out. If someone rigged a part to keep the nose closed, you can order the correct parts at Not really needed however because the gun does not jam that often. Good luck

Paslode air nailer

With the Paslode cordless tools there are a couple of things that will prevent the tools from firing; a jam at the nose of the tool, a dirty combustion system and slack in the spring that pushes the finish nails forward.

First, remove the battery to prevent inadvertant firing, then check to see if you've had two finish nails driven thru the head. Remove any finish nails in the tool. Now lift the nose latch up to release the drive head mechanism. Once you have that up, you can look and see if there are any nails jammed in between the guide and the driving ram. You can push up the ram with a flat bladed screwdriver to make it easier to get the jammed nails out.

IF, the jam can't be removed easily with a pair of needle nose pliers, by pulling the nails down and out away from the tool body, you'll have to take the front nose of the tool apart (not normally needed, except in really severe jams).

If the tool isn't jammed, try putting in a new full strip of nails and pull back on the spring about a inch or two and let it go, so it'll push the nail strips all thw way forward, which will make sure the nailer isn't being locked out by the "last nail" safety switch.

Lastly, you need to clean the tool, as they don't work reliably when dirty, so follow the cleaning instructions that Paslode provides with the tool (they're tool involved and lengthy to type here)

Some other things you can check are to make sure the fuel cell cap is properly seated on the fuel cell, by pushing it all way on both sides till it clicks in place. Also, you can check for fuel flow by briefly depressing the fuel cell against a flat surface (no open flames nearby!!) to see if you're getting any fuel squirting out of the cell, as sometimes that helps to get the fuel flowing.

It also needs to be warm enough to operate. These tools don't do well when subjected to very cold temps. I always keep the batteries and fuel cells inside when the temps are below 40 degrees.

I've found that the Paslode finish nailers jam frequently due to the plastic carrier that holds the nails together, so I don't bother trying to use any small nail strips, (2-6 nails left) as they tend to cause problems. It's more productive to just use full to 1/3 strips of nails and avoid the possibility of jamming that comes with trying to load in some 2-6 nail strips.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
