SOURCE: paslode cordless framer wont fire. new gas , charged battery,

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

SOURCE: My finish nail guns, 16 ga won't fire.

There is a little plastic piece inside above the trigger...usually this breaks. It touches a microswitch when the cylinder is closed all the way, allowing the nail to fire.

SOURCE: Paslode nail gun 325 black not firing

Any time these guns become intermittent or stop firing but the fan still runs, the first the to check is the expiration date on the gas cartridges. The do expire and this will make the gun work inconsistently or not at all.

MY NAILGUN QUIT FIRING NAILS. I LOADED UP TWICE AND USED NAILS BUT AFTER LOADING THE 3RD SET OF NAILS MY NAILGUN WON'T FIRE THEM INTO WOOD. WHAT I HEAR IS JUST A SMALL AMOUNT OF AIR FROM AROUND THE...


Sounds like you may have a nail jam. You didn't specify what type of nailer you have - most finish guns have a latch to open the nose & clear a jam - if it is a framer most of the time it requires a long punch and a hammer to push the driver back in past the jam to clear it.
Let me know if this does not fix your issue.

Hitachi nail gun


If gun firing but nails not being driven could be one of two basic problems:
1. Nail jammed in magazine not allowing nails to move up.
Empty magazine, does follower move to top of magazine. Push gun against work piece, does fan motor start? Yes - jam in magazine or lock out bar not operating. (this would allow nail un to fire when out of nails)
2. Piston/driver not returning fully after firing, hence driver blade on top of next nail instead of behind it. This could again be caused by a jammed nail or just a nail head. Another case of not returning is the combustion chamber not making a good seal, check O rings on framer (they are steel rings on bradders) it may just need a good clean it is surprising how dirty they can get and if not cleaned a build up of dirt could break a seal. If not been cleaned for a long time worth checking piston rings, worst case scenario dirt builds up around the rings and stick fully in requiring new piston if the rings will not come out.
Nail guns work on the principle that an explosion pushes the piston driver forcing a nail into the work piece, after the explosion a vacuum is created and it is this that 'sucks' the piston/driver back up the cylinder.

How does the framing nailer work with a black button grey button


Dewalt has two triggers available for their framing nailer. The black trigger (390746-00) is a bump style trigger. While holding the trigger, you will be able to fire a nail by pressing nose against work. This trigger is preferred by most framers because it is much faster. Gray trigger will only allow one nail to be fired. Bumping will not work with the gray trigger. With trigger released, you must place the nose against work then pull trigger to fire. To fire next round, you must release trigger, pull gun off the work, again place nose against work then press trigger. Check dewalt web site for recall information. Some dewalt framers have been recalled for faulty trigger. Good luck with your projects.

I have a paslode airless framer that wont fire. New batterry & fuel cell. It make the noise but wont fire


Hello harderconstr, I have that nail gun myself, and when it's working good it is a great tool to have.
Here are a few suggestions.
1. Remove the battery, make sure that you don't have a nail jammed in the the firing chamber, that has happened to mine before.

2. Adjust the depth tension on the end of the gun. You should have an alen wrench to loosen the adjuster at the tip. Slide the adjuster away from the gun, ( out ) as far as it will go and then tighten it back down. Reinstall the battery and try it again. You can re-adjust the tension after you see if this helps the problem. The adjuster on my gun was worn and I needed to adjust the tension to get it firing again.
3. I also got a new battery for my gun, and what I found was I really had to slide the battery in pretty hard to get it to click in place. Also, when you hold the gun in your right hand, the thumb side of the handle should have a very small LED light, red means it's not ready to fire, green means it is ready to fire. Make sure you have a green light.
I hope this helps you my friend!

Paslode framer when you depress trigger there no resistance and it does not fire


Paslode framer has a lever inside of trigger that may be bent or missing. Easy to check. Remove air line and nails. Remove trigger by pulling pin. Check under trigger for missing parts. Test gun by connecting to air and place nose of gun against wood or hard rubber and then depress firing pin. If gun fires then problem is with lever under trigger or safety mechanism which is in two parts. Check safety for bent or broken piece, usually upper part will be missing lip that actually pushes on the lever. If however gun does not fire when firing pin is depressed, time for replacing orings in gun. Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com . Good luck with your repair and post again if you have other questions.

Firing pin not retracting far enough to allow nails forward


Yes,this is a common "mis fire" by Pasilode. I own the 16p Framer and the Angle nailer and I never get it from the Framer but I do get it seldom from Trim Gun,nothing you can do ,its just a misfire.
