Cleared jammed staples. put in new staples and machine does not dispense staples at all and there is no "jamming" of any staples. It's like it isn't sending staple through machine.

SOURCE: Stapler works intermittantly

If not the power source or cord, the next activation point would be the trigger. Does the stapler make any sort of noise when the trigger is depressed? What type and model stapler is it?

317b762.jpg4a538aa.jpg067f3f0.jpg5077a62.jpgca392ef.jpge76904e.jpg77309d5.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

SOURCE: there's a jammed staple but I can't figure out how to open it to fix the problem and refill it

This is how it works on the Arrow staple gun. On the back bottom, opposite end from where the staples come out, there is a little plate. Push it in and it unhooks and pops out. attached to a rod. When you refill with staples, just push them in, then put the rod back in and the spring applies the pressure.

SOURCE: electric stapler won't staple

On the side of the stapler are the instructions - no joke - stick a flathead at the lip of the metal striker and push the flat head up - while pushing the realse at the back - use A LOT of force - that is how ours popped open. It was jammed in the back with several staples that were not visible as a jamb in the front where the staples come out. the whole magazine will pop out when it is freed.

SOURCE: 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.

My Pro 8000 stapler has about 20 staples jamed I need to how to unjam thew booklet does not show this


Clearing the Nail and
Staple Chamber
If, while using your Cobra

staple
and nail gun, it becomes necessary to
clear a jam from the staple chamber or
track, follow these instructions:

With the bottom of the gun
facing away from your face and
body, open the staple chamber by
squeezing and pulling the plastic
track release straight down away
from the base of the gun and
sliding the track back.(Fig 1)
(Note: the jammed staple or nail
may cause the track to be harder
to slide out than usual. Once the
staple or nail has been cleared,
the track will resume its normal,
free operation) Loose staples or
nails will be expelled from the
chamber.

Clear any remaining staples or
nails from the track and chamber
area.

Reload the Cobra staple and nail
gun and continue using.

Someone loaded regular staples into our Swingline 45 Optima now it will not work when loaded with the correct staples.


Using the wrong or style ofstaples, overfilling the machine and stapling through too-thick materials can causeOptima to jam. Now follow these steps: 1. Holdthe base down as you lift the top of the Optima stapler to access the stapletray. 2. Removeall the staples from the tray so that you have access to the jammed staple. 3. Turnthe stapler upside down and shake it to clear out staples you can't reach withyour fingers. 4. Gripthe jammed staple with the needle-nose pliers and, while holding the staplersecurely, pull it up. 5. Twistthe staple until it breaks into two pieces if it will not pull straight out.Pull out the two individual pieces. The Optima stapler line bySwingline is designed to be jam-free when Optima premium jam-free staples areused. Using another , style or brand may cause frequent jamming. Hope thiswill help you. Good Luck.

I have a Canon 1180 printer with sorter and stapler. The stapler puts dents in paper but does not staple. It has staples and there appears to be no jam. What up?


if you have cleared any jamed staples in the cartridge and it is still doing the same thing it may be a weak staple motor or a gear on the staple assembly may be slipping.

Printer jammed. I cleared the jam but it


You most likely have a tiny piece of paper stuck in the paper path that cannot be seen unless taken apart. Depending on the type of printer... remove the paper tray and the back cover and look for any small shred of paper. If you still see nothing, a local repair shop would be your best option.

How to repair jammed arrow electo matic staple gun


You'll have to disassemble it. There is probably a staple lodged in the "hammer" mechanism on the business end of the stapler.

Often, these staple are very difficult to remove -- a very small flat-tip screwdriver and needle-nose pliers usually work best.

After you get all the jammed staples out, lubricate all moving parts with something akin to 3-IN-1 machine oil. This should prevent future jams.
