K, this could be a couple problems. How far down did you take it to clean? Are you comfortable with removing the combustion chamber/housing from unit. There are 4 screws in the top cover and 2 down where the work contact is. Remove them leaving just the fan assembly and handle housing. Next locate the roller arm next to the fan assembly, put a fresh battery in tool and push the arm (KEEPING HANDS AWAY FROM FAN) the fan should come on, if not you probably have an electronic assembly that is bad, if it does come on it should stop in a few seconds. Next depress the trigger and again the fan should come on. Now to diagnose the firing unit. Depress the lever on the roller arm and hold in while pulling trigger, you should see a spark and also hear it where the plug is. If not then you either have a spark unit that is bad or a wiring problem. At this point I would take in for repair. The spark unit is around 90-100 dollars When you put back together did you also replace the orings or clean the ring grooves? Let me know if you have any questions

I had the same problem with my angled finish nailer. After pulling apart the nailer to clean it and check all the wiring, I discovered that the wire from the spark plug, where it connects to the trigger, was not fully engaged/inserted. There is about 1/8" to 3/16" of insulation stripped from the wire's end that allows the wire to insert into the base of the sealed trigger mechanism. I made sure the wire was fully seated and applied some glue to the point where the insulated wire leaves the sealed unit. Once reassembled, the gun fired like a charm and has not failed to fire once since (after 1000 or so nails). Hope this helps.

It needs to be cleaned and oiled. You can buy an electrical cleaner spray and oil specific for paslodes at Home Depot. You will have to take the back off (where the filter is) and clean it with the cleaning spray then oil it well. Put it back together and it will work like new again. You will be surprised how much difference it will make. Good luck

Brand new gun won't work right.


I share your frustration with these paslode framers. Since you are working clost to electrical power I recommend a regular pneumatic framer and a compressor. Cheaper to buy, cheaper to use and must less trouble overall. Best of luck to you as u do God's work.

First, make sure you gas is not expired, it has a date on it. Take off the back cover with the allen wrench and two phillips head screws on the sides. Pull it out, being very careful and make sure when you put it back the wires are tucked in there place again. There is an o-ring under the fan that may need replacing causing the vacuum to not work.Also, make sure the little spark plug is clean of all carbon residue. Clean with some WD40 or ether. Worst case scenario fan motor or spark plug. You can find parts for these things. Lemme know. Please rate me

Paslode nail gun not firing


Hi,
Yes you need to oil driver blade piston.
You need to check for spark. With no nail or gas in it. Take of main cylinder(4bolts on top, 2 bolts on nose. And then put in battery. And then push upper switch(behind roller at top) and the fan will come on. And then pull the trigger. You should have spark.
Thanks,
Jeff
