Morning Andrew,

When was the tool last serviced? Seems rather strange that the fan has only turned 1/2 a rotation. Sometimes, the trigger unit can fail on this tool but.... I'd suggest that you don't try too many times as potentially, you could burn the fan motor out?

Just a thought though, if you disconnect the power to the fan, can you either see or, hear the spark being generated?

Regards

SOURCE: paslode fan runs half spped and will not fire unless fan motor is unplugged

if your fan motor is ok, which it probably is, it has got to be the spark unit . the spark unit is the brains of the operation. the little black box located in the handle of the tool( the spark unit ) can cause fan to run slow or not at all. its a bit expensive( probably 60-80 dollars) but not that hard to change out. if its the original be careful pulling it out its glued in from the factory.

Make sure that you dry the top of the motor housing and connections.Make sure that the piston is up as far as it can go.
When you depress the nose against the work the motor should run and if you look at the flashing light on the side it will stay constantly on and momentarily flash when you pull the trigger. If it goes red then check the battery is charged otherwise there coiuld be a fault with the motor.
Is the inlet Valve facing the correct way with the bottom of the "V" facing down into the machine.
Check the date of the gas, make sure it is not out of date.
Is the gas cold? warm the cylinder up by putting it in your trouser pocket for 10 min. Paslode make winter gas for these cold days.

Not much information to go on. first thing to check is the date on the fuel cell. On the bottom of the fuel cell you will find a use before this date. fuel goes bad. next is tomake sure the battery is fully charged (light on tool should be green when you put battery in). With fastners in tool depress on wood. Now you should hear the fan start. Pull trigger and it should fire. If t doesn't, make sure there is not a jambed nail. Open quick release on front of tool. Remove jambed nail push driver back inside tool with small screw driver. Try to fire tool again, you may have to lift the tool again off the wood and press back down. when doing this you are putting fuel in the chamber and you might have to do it more than once. Hope this helps. please give more information if it des not. Good luck

Quit firing nails motor comes on but nothing happens when pulling trigger


I am assuming that you have changed the gas cylinder. Make sure you have the exact correct cylinder, because there are some that look like they fit, but don't quite seal. This unit requires battery charged for ignition and induction fan. And it requires fuel to drive the nail,.

Paslode nail gun 325 black not firing


Any time these guns become intermittent or stop firing but the fan still runs, the first the to check is the expiration date on the gas cartridges. The do expire and this will make the gun work inconsistently or not at all.

I shot six mails and the frame nailer gun stopped working (could no longer dispense nails) I have a frame impulse cordless; the fan engages upon tip compression, I pull the trigger, the framer does not...


First, make sure you gas is not expired, it has a date on it. Take off the back cover with the allen wrench and two phillips head screws on the sides. Pull it out, being very careful and make sure when you put it back the wires are tucked in there place again. There is an o-ring under the fan that may need replacing causing the vacuum to not work.Also, make sure the little spark plug is clean of all carbon residue. Clean with some WD40 or ether. Worst case scenario fan motor or spark plug. You can find parts for these things. Lemme know. Please rate me

Paslode framing nailer 1998 yr. model when engaged wont fire


you have spark and cleaned tool correct, but fan won't turn that freely, if so the fan motor is bad, it should come on when you pull the trigger or move the roller lever for the safety. The fan is about 80.00 Let me know if I missed something and how did you check the spark?

Paslode nail gun not firing


Hi,
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.
Thanks,
Jeff

Paslode cordless framer wont fire. new gas , charged battery,


K, this could be a couple problems. How far down did you take it to clean? Are you comfortable with removing the combustion chamber/housing from unit. There are 4 screws in the top cover and 2 down where the work contact is. Remove them leaving just the fan assembly and handle housing. Next locate the roller arm next to the fan assembly, put a fresh battery in tool and push the arm (KEEPING HANDS AWAY FROM FAN) the fan should come on, if not you probably have an electronic assembly that is bad, if it does come on it should stop in a few seconds. Next depress the trigger and again the fan should come on. Now to diagnose the firing unit. Depress the lever on the roller arm and hold in while pulling trigger, you should see a spark and also hear it where the plug is. If not then you either have a spark unit that is bad or a wiring problem. At this point I would take in for repair. The spark unit is around 90-100 dollars When you put back together did you also replace the orings or clean the ring grooves? Let me know if you have any questions
