First - I know it is basic - but check your fuel! This is the #1 cause of complaints with these nailers. On the bottom of the cell is a date code - if it is within date, press the nozzle of the fuel cell up against something solid (bench/table) and you should get a good burst of fuel - if not, replace your cell & try it.
If the tool is clean, your fan runs and the fuel is good then it is one of 3 things: a bad trigger switch, a bad spark plug / wire (uncommon), or a bad ESU (Electronic Spark Unit).
I would recommend bringing it to a qualified repair shop to diagnose.

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.

SOURCE: will bosch nail guns operate with Paslode brand nails?

The F28WW takes 28Deg nails that are collated with wire, so your nails won't work in that gun. The N80SB is also a 28Deg nailer so your 30 Deg nails won't work in that gun either. Sorry about the bad news but it looks like your going to have to spring for new nails

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

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>

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.

try a doing a complete cleaning using Paslode cleaner or electrical contact cleaner.

Nail comes out another hole


are you using the right nails and are they inserted properly if this is an angle gun? Also look for a jammed nail that might be causing this. look at the magazine bolts to make sure they are tight. You can go to Paslode.com for the owners manual and troubleshooting guide.
