Question about Stanley Bostitch 02210 Electric Stapler w/Anti-Jam Mechanism- 20 S

Open Question

Won't staple I have a Stanley Bostitch 02210 Electic Stapler that will not staple. You feed the paper in and it does not staple, most of the time. I tested the outlet and it is fine. I don't know if the cord is bad, the eye or what ever triggers the stapler is bad, or what is really bad. I have taken the stapler apart and cleaned everything up and it still will not staple each time.

    I tried to unplug the stapler for a day then plug it in and it would staple once then quit. I unplugged again for about 10 minutes and plugged it back in and it still would not staple. I unplugged a third time and plugged it back in 24 hours later and it stapled once then quit stapling again.

How do I refill the stapler model #02210 with new staples?

I have a similar model. When you push the button on top, the "drawer" pops out. Pull the drawer out until it is fully extended and you will be able to load staples. When you fave finished loading staples, push the drawer in until it latches.

Have a Stanley Bostitch electric desk stapler 02210 that will only staple only once after button on top is pressed to release the staple holder. Awkward and time-consuming. Recommend fix anyone? Thanks...

The optical sensor that detect the presence of the paper is malfunctioning - you will have to take the unit apart and see what is wrong with it. Most likely the sensor is dirty and it needs to be cleaned.

I have a bostitch stanley desk top stapler model # 02210, it will not activate the staple when you put the paper in it, does that little trigger in there have a spring on it because it will not return to...

The case of the stapler is glued together. To open the case requires carefully sawing it along the seams. The paper switch is spring loaded but the spring is built into the switch. It is possible that something is jamming it.
