Replace the fan motor, if it has a short it sends a fault signal to the spark unit. also make sure the red wire going to the spark plug is not pinched or arcing

With gun assembled but gas cell REMOVED look at LED on handle, with battery fitted LED will flash. Now press it against work piece, LED will stay lit whilst still watching LED press trigger. LED should blink off (it may blink red) this indicates that the spark unit has sent the spark. If this works it sounds like either the spark lead has been damaged and spark could be shorting across back of cylinder head or you actually have a gas problem. Check cylinder head O ring, use by date on bottom of gas cell. Depending on age of gun it may have another O ring on the sleeve (pre 2006). Check sleeve is clean do not add oil to working parts (except a smear when cleaning sleeve and around O rings when reassembling gun)

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.

Try a different gas cartridge and make sure the top of the cartridge is snapped tightly onto the cartridge body.

Changed the circuit board on a Paslode IM350 and now the fan wont work any Ideas welcome


fan motor could have gone bad, spark unit(little black box in handle) could be bad. one of the three top conections could be loose, or hooked up wrong, battery contacts on end of circuit board assembly could be placed a little off( battery not making contact with circuit mold assembly) pinched one of the wires going to the trigger area, or fan area

I have a 900420 gas paslode nail gun .When I push the gun down it is dead ,the battery is charged and it has gas


You need to remove the combustion chamber assembly and check for spark, remove 4 screws from filter cover and 2 screws from nose mount then carefully slide the assembly off, fit a good battery and press down on the roller arm below the fan, the fan should run, operate the trigger while the fan is running and you should get a spark, if not you will have an electrical fault, if you get spark bend the roller up slightly and see if that solves your problem

Hi .my im350 nail gun isnt working gas and battery ok and gun is cleaned.light on green .but when depresssed makes strange noise and lights on fire from fan end?


Hi,

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.

Paslode im350 will only now wrk properly when on a flat surface i cannot fire in at an angle without it mis-fireing


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

IM250 Paslode straight brad nailer, fan wont shut off


My paselode was doing the same thing, and I followed all of the cleaning instructions, but the problem continued.

If it was left alone for a minute, it would fire again, so I removed the cover over the trigger assy, and checked the spark plug wire connection. The trigger came out, and during reassembly, I noticed that the electrical switch was hanging, and slowly pushing back out.

I cleaned and lightly spray/oiled the switch pin, and voila.........works like a charm.

Paslode framing nailer loss of power.


Here's what I found at the Paslode Troubleshooting Site:
Tool will not cycle - fan runs, indicator light
is solid green.

Lockout bracket is stuck in lockout position.
Work-contacting element is bent, or build-up of
debris in track restricts operation.
Follower is not behind fasteners.
Fuel Cell empty.
Spark wire out of spark plug.
Spark plug is dirty.
No spark is generated.
Check lockout.

Remove and inspect lower probe. Clean and
lubricate track with Paslode Impulse® oil.
Repair or replace lower probe as required.
Position follower behind fasteners.
Replace fuel cell.
Remove cap and check spark lead, insert in
spark plug and replace cover.
Clean tool cylinder head and spark plug.

If this doesn't work, I suggest contacting Paslode directly 800-222-6990
