Question about Swingline Office Equipment & Supplies
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?

This 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.

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.

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.
