Re: paslode im350 piston will not return
It sounds as if the piston o ring is worn. Does the piston drop if you just give it a slight bump with no nails in the magazine, if so that is the problem and would need replaced. Let me know otherwise and I will dig deeper

It sounds like the "spring" at the back of the gun has gotten bent pressing down on the rear activation button that turns the fan on. This spring has a loop at one end and a roller at the other, remove it and slightly bend the it down. Not much
The allen screw/s that you mention are there to plug holes where automatic equipment would normally connect (such as automatic nailing machines) . This is only a plug and should not be driven in too far. I have also seen allen screws installed in the head to repair small crack/s.
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.
Make sure the nails are inserted so that the follower maintains pressure on the strip of nails. Also, your pressure on the whole gun at an angle is probably not as great as on the flat---could lead to misfiring
The best solution is to take the front part apart and clean it it tends to get filled with dirt and debris and once clean lube it well and it should work fine had that problem a few times and it always worked for me
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
Stuart - this sounds like an air problem - you should perform the following test. With the air nailer close to the compressor you must monitor the airpressure after the gun fires. it sounds like the air is not gettting through diapram fast enough or there is a blockage in line. Blockage in line is not suspected for the following reason . It sounds like the air hose is holding enough air to fire 2-4 nails and then you must wait for the line to fill up again and then it fires ok. The pressure regulator out to the line controls this and they do fail. try this test and report back to me - I know I can solve this for you as I have extensive background in compressor and the like.
