Swingline, now owned by ACCO, should have a service manual that would tell you how to clear jams - here's the url - http://www.acco.com/contactus.aspx#swingline. If not, you can also send them your question directly so they can help you resolve the issue.

SOURCE: We have a Swingline 690

I had the same problem with my 690. This is what worked for me.. I simply pulled out the staples from the cartridge a little further than the suggested tear-off point, and the machine was able to start working. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: swingline optima 40 how do you open and close the

Swingline heavy duty staplers provide the power to staple up to 120 pages of 20-lb. paper easily and consistently. The all-metal construction of these staplers makes them an indispensible office tool. However, the way to load staples into a Swingline heavy duty stapler differs from the method for loading most other manual staplers and can cause a little confusion.
Difficulty:Easy Instructions

    • 1 Remove the follow block at the back of the stapler by pushing the mechanism in, lifting the block up over the holding hooks and sliding it out from the stapler. The follow block is the spring-loaded mechanism that holds the staples in place within the stapler.
    • 2 Load the heavy-duty staples into the staple tray.
    • 3 Replace the follow block by inserting it back into the stapler and locking it into place over the holding hooks.

SOURCE: how do I make the Optima 20 electic stapler model 48208 work after putting in the staples. I put the paper in as usual and it does not work. I have put the staples in correctly as I normally do, but

Unplug it, take it apart and examine the switch actuator and switch to see why they don't trigger the stapler. There's a good chance you'll find the actuator is broken or jammed by a foreign object, or the switch is worn out. Metal-filled epoxy works well for repairing ABS plastic parts.
Another possibility is a broken power cord. You can test the electrical parts for continuity with an ohmmeter (unplugged, of course!).

Swingline Optima 45 Stapler - cannot slide tray back in stapler, no staples jamming


Sometimes the rectangular insert where the staples sit on, gets dislodged. On the underside of channel insert is a spring and when correctly seated is in between the tabs of the bottom piece. If the insert isn't in between the tabs, it sits too high and makes it difficult to open and close the staple tray. The staples will jam.

Staples will not come out of the stapler.


Did you use Optima brand staples? If not, the stapler will not work correctly. You must use their brand of staples or it will continue jamming, and giving you problems. The staples typically found right next to the Optima staplers in the office supply stores. They come in a rectangular metal box and are labeled Optima staples.

No staples coming out of machines


The Optima line of staplers do not work without jamming continuously unless you use the Optima brand staples. They can be found in the store next to the Optima staplers in a rectangular silver box, and will solve you problem instantly. There is no other brand of staple that will work in this line (I tried numerous), but once you purchase the Optima staples, problem solved, and you'll love it!

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.

We have a swingline model #690 - after loading with new staples, it does not staple. It is plugged in and makes a sound like it's stapling but does not release a staple.


1. Make sure you have the correct staples for the machine. The type appears to be:
Swingline 50050 Cartridge Staples, Chisel Point, 1/2"" Crown, 3/16"" Leg, 5000 Per Box High-quality Swingline cartridge

2. Check the cartridge to make sure there are no visible jams.

3. Contact the manufacturer at http://www.acco.com/swingline/, or

My Swingline Optima Power Ease will not staple, nor can I open it to try to find out why. There are staples in there, but it feels like there are no springs


This happened to me as well. I am not sure what causes this but heres what I did to fix it.

Just grab the top part of the stapler ( where it says Swingline) and pull up, like you are trying to seperate the top and bottom. You will hear a click and your stapler should work fine.

Swingline 520e does not staple


The trick to clearing this is to rn the stapler WITHOUT the cartridge in. We removed several visible jams, but once we ran it with the cartridge out, a huge piece of staple came out, and then we were able to put the cartridge back in and use it. Woot!

My Swingline model 520e jams every other time I staple.


There were a few staples left in the cartridge when the stapler stopped working. I went thru all the steps on bottom for stapler after changing the cartridge with two different cartridges. It makes the noise and puts marks in the paper, but no staples come out of it.
