OK lets start from the top, gas full, but what is the expiration date, it is located on the bottom of the fuel cell and if out of date can cause a problem. Second when was the last time the tool was taken apart and completely cleaned and serviced with new orings and lube? Lastly look at the nails are they traveling thru the magazine freely? Let me know and I will try and help further

Paslode Cordless Nailer Problems


<p><b><i>Paslode cordless nailers</i></b> are a very common tool used by many professionals and do it yourselfers. These <b>nail guns are a great tool</b> when they work correctly, but can drive you nuts when they do not work as they should. When answering problems that people have on <a href="http://www.fixya.com/"><b>www.Fixya.com</b></a> I come across many questions about these nail guns and why they do not work.<br /> <p><br /> <p>If you are having problems with your <b>Paslode nail gun</b> the first thing you need to do is get the <b>Paslode manual</b> out of the box and checkout how to <b>clean the nail gun</b>. One of the most common causes for these <b>nail guns to have problems</b> is because of a<b> lack of maintenance</b>. If you do not have the <b>manual for your Paslode nailer</b> you can download one here. <a href="http://www.paslode.com/owners-manuals.html">www.paslode.com/owners-manuals.html</a><br /> <p>They have all of the current models and also <b>discontinued model Paslode manuals</b> there.<br /> <p><br /> <p>The manual will also contain <b>troubleshooting information</b> also. The <b>troubleshooting guide</b> can often help you to find the problem with your tool. Do not do the common man thing and be too proud to <b>get out the directions and READ them.</b> There are many tips and helps contained in them that will save you a ton of aggravation later.<br /> <p><br /> <p>Now, there are a few things that I have found out through my experiences with this nail gun that are not in the manual. <br /> <p><br /> <p>First, When the manual tells you that the tool needs to be <b>cleaned and lubed regularly</b> it means that you NEED to do that. Most problems are because of a<b> lack of cleaning and lubing the tool</b>.<br /> <p><br /> <p>Besides that, <b>gas cylinders</b> are a problem sometimes even if they are new. If you just replaced the gas cylinder and the <b>nail gun will not work</b>, try another one. Also, sometimes the end that goes on the gas cylinders will not snap on correctly or completely. You sometimes can still get the cylinder into the gun but it will not work because the top is not attached completely or correctly.<br /> <p><br /> <p>Check that the <b>nails do not get jammed in the magazine</b> and then not push up to the front of the gun. No nails, no work. Paper from the nails can sometimes cause them to bind up and not slide front. Make sure to always use nails that are only for the<b> Paslode nail gun</b>.<br /> <p><br /> <p>The firing pin can also be a problem. The <b>firing pin will bend</b> sometimes, but usually because of lack of the right nails or maintenance. Another problem that can happen is that the<b> o-rings around the firing pin</b> will break or crack. When this happens the gun may not fire or the pin will not return after it shoots a nail. If you are having these problems then check the o-rings both top and mid-pin to make sure they are in good shape. If they are chipped or cracked in anyway the gun will not work correctly.<br /> <p><br /> <p>The <b>battery contacts</b> on these nailers are also a problem. They can get dirt and dust in them or become bent. If they fail to make good contact they can cause the gun to have all types of problems. If you are having unexplained problems then<b> check the contacts of both the battery</b> and the gun. You can clean them with a soft cloth or sometimes with a pencil eraser.<br /> <p><br /> <p>The last but least likely problem is the<b> internal wiring in the nail gun</b>. Because of the violent nature of the gun firing the wiring takes a beating inside the nail gun.<b> Every time the gun fires</b> the vibration can cause the wires to move just a bit and eventually a wire can work loose. If all other things check out then look for wires that do not go anywhere. If there is a wire floating around that has no home then you have found your problem. After adjusting the end of the wire so it is tighter, reconnect the wire and you will be working again.<br /> <p><br /> <p>As you can see there are many things that can go wrong with these nail guns. Because of this there also are many things that you can find online that will help you. <b>E-how.com</b> has some tips that will help. <b>You-tube</b> also has some videos that will show you how to clean and troubleshoot these nail guns. Doing a simple online search will give you many places that can help you and also give you sites from which to buy parts if needed.<br /> <p><br /> <p>If you need parts for your nail gun, here is a good place to get those parts.<br /> <p><br /> <p><a href="http://itwconstructionparts.com/xcart/">http://itwconstructionparts.com/xcart/</a><br /> <p><br /> <p>

My hitachi nr 90 gc nailer was always slow to fire a nail with about a second delay between pulling the trigger and firing the nail. now however the gun will only fire a nail once in about 20 attempts, and...


Trigger may be dirty, as an electrical switch the contacts can be intermittent. Also check to see if the safety plunger is set to correct depth and moving freely. Dirt can build up here......

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!

Framing nailer intermittently doesn't shoot the nail.


Make sure to blow out the magazine where the nails load, make sure the spring tension on the nail clip is working properly, make sure you're not holding the clip somehow with your off hand so the clip can't feed correctly.

Senco SN4 misfiring intermittently


This is a discontinued tool by Senco but there are still parts available for it. It sound to me that the o rings and possibly the firing valve need to be replaced. I would recommend going to Senco.com and you will find a complete parts diagram in their discontinued tool section. They also have a toll free number if needed and you can talk to their air pro. I have rebuilt quite a few of these and they are not that hard just make sure to clean all the parts and use lube when replacing O rings.

Hitachi Framing Gun Not Firing - Bad Battery?


Does the fan run and the light blink ont he nailer? I have one that I just bought. I put in the wrong type of nails and got one stuck. I had to take the front apart to clear it and now the damm thing wont fire. The green light blinks and the gas cartridge is basically full, even the fan does run after I release the push lever, but no fire???

I wonder if yours is the same as mine did fire for a couple nails first just fine then got jammed...

I will try to charge the battery more.... MAybe like yours it needs a strong charge for the spark...
