    The pictures helped me fix my stapler. It was all apart in a dozen pieces. I was able to figure out how to put it all back together EXCEPT the coil spring. The pictures posted by lessmith49 solved the puzzle for me. Stapler works perfectly now.

see above - 317b762.jpg067f3f0.jpg5077a62.jpgca392ef.jpgThis is an older b&d stapler but the designs are similar in most cases. The position of the springs, and the order you put them in, are an obvious factor.
The parts that overlap go in after the parts underneath.
When you have one half assembeled you should not have to force the cover to go on, it should just sit in place while you put the screws back in.
If the handle coil spring and the flat spring are not seated properly the top cover will not go on easily.
These types of staplers are designed to clear from jamming without being taken apart, the staples, under normal circumstances, do not have access to the body of the unit past the flat spring.
As with any tool forcing the tool after a fault will only make matters worse, I would try some light oil or spray lubricant first before taking anything apart, these springs can be a pain to get back in, which is why I have not taken this one any further apart. Hope this helps you. If it does please let fixya know.
Regards
Les

    First, I would like to make it known that this is the only usable post I found during about 20 minutes of searching. There is no other useful pictures or diagrams, anywhere!

    I found it helpful to study each part and compare to the pictures until I wasfamiliar with where each part belongs. The far right picture in the second row is too dark to make out exactly how the flattened wide, T shaped hammer part with two holes that the flat spring tabs fit into is positioned. It fits in so that the T shape is upside down. This part fits into a slide composed of a slot in each half of the cover when assembled. I put this piece into the slot. Then, positioned the flat spring so that it's tabs fit into the holes of the T part and rested against the threaded post it uses for leverage. Then using one or two flat head screwdrivers forced the other end of the flat spring into it's proper position. Inserted flat head screw driver between both legs and a nook in the cover so that I was able to twist the flat head forcing the T part to slide up in the stapler. This allow me to easily put the plastic wedge into its position. The flat center lever that hinges on a removable pin was slipped into place between the legs of the flat spring from the top and the front end of the stapler. I continued to insert the lever while threading it around the threaded post until it was into position to allow one of the removable pins to be put in place. Then the large coil spring I put into place near the hinging post for the Handle with the straight end of the spring fitting into its place. The handle was put into place and the remaining pin was put in to hold the handle and lever in place. The crooked end of the coil spring was forced into its notch on the lever with a Phillips screw driver. Finally the other half of the cover was put on and secured.

My swingline electric stapler model 42130 is jammed is there a manual release button the one on the back doesnt work


Taking the stapler apart is a complex task if you can figure how to do that.To dismantle the stapler, slide back the top, remove two small screws on both sides, six on the bottom, four of the screws are under the sticker so you must peel off the sticker, you must also remove the sticker on top. There two tiny shinny screws at the bottom once you are inside. Now you have access to more screws you can take off to get to the staples place where the jam is. Watch cables where they are plugged to in case they come off. If you are are a mechanical technician or technically inclined you might be able to fix this yourself but you must be very patient.

How to remove jammed staples in staple gun?


Take out the small bolt that is secured with a nut at the back of the gun (at the end where you feed the staples) -- then drop the inset. Now you have access to the jammed area. Clear out jammed staples and put the stapler back together. Easiest way is to hold the nut and turn the bolt from the other side.
