Question about Air Tools & Compressors
Fan keeps going and will not fire
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.

Make sure the spark plug ignites. Take tool apart as in cleaning. Hold micr switch near fan and watch as you pull trigger. you will see a spark. If not check the lead to igniter

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.

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

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.

Here is a tip that I wrote about the Paslode nailers and the problems that can come up with them.
I also have a link to the Paslode manuals which contain Paslode cleaning and troubleshooting guides.
If you need parts for your Paslode, there also is a link for a site that sells the Paslode nailer parts.
