What color is the light when you insert battery? then what color is it when you try and fire the tool? you could have a couple problems, first does the light even come on? If not the battery contacts might be bad. second you got light but no fan, could be a spark plug wire, bent lower probe circuit board bad and lastly bad fan motor. Let me know about the lights first and we will go from there

Why doesnt my nail gun, straight nail finisher wont fire?

I need to have a little more information.
Is the green light flashing on the handle?
Does the fan run when you depress the nose?
The most common problem we see with these is bad / expired fuel - be sure to check the date stamped on the bottom of the fuel cell.
One other basic thing to check:
Bent lower probe - these are very prone to bending & that will prevent it from traveling fully and making the head switch inside.
If you still have problems please post more information about what the tool does / doesn't do and I'll talk you through troubleshooting.

I have a pasload im 250 ii straight finish nailer when I pull the trigger the motor runs with out the tip being pressed is this normal and when I press the tip and pull the trigger it does not fire

Yes, it is normal for the fan to run when the trigger is pulled. Does the fan start when you depress the nose?
If not, it most likely is a bent contact element, or a bad head switch.

The trigger doesn't engaged. New cell, battery charged, fan works, full of nails, nothing jams.

First thing is to check date on the bottom of fuel cell. Make sure fuel cell is before that date. Now when you depress the safety and the fan comes on listen very closly at the top of the tool. If you hear a snap. Problem is solved. The plug wire is shorting to the head and is not getting into the chamber to fire the tool. Some times if you turn the lights out you can see were it is shorting. Many times it is were the wire goes on to the plug. If this is the case a little dilectric grease will take care of the problem.I remove the plug wire (you will need to remove the four cap screws on top) put the grease around the spark plug and reinstall my wire. reassemble and test. Good luck

Paslode im 250 the fan goes on but it does not fire when depressed. I have tried a new gas cylinder

Make sure the battery is charged - it will not provide good combustion.

Next - make sure the plunger is fully depressed - there is an adjustment on the side.

Finally - check for proper operation of the trigger.

Paslode Impulse Framing Nailer won't operate


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 air nailer

With the Paslode cordless tools there are a couple of things that will prevent the tools from firing; a jam at the nose of the tool, a dirty combustion system and slack in the spring that pushes the finish nails forward.

First, remove the battery to prevent inadvertant firing, then check to see if you've had two finish nails driven thru the head. Remove any finish nails in the tool. Now lift the nose latch up to release the drive head mechanism. Once you have that up, you can look and see if there are any nails jammed in between the guide and the driving ram. You can push up the ram with a flat bladed screwdriver to make it easier to get the jammed nails out.

IF, the jam can't be removed easily with a pair of needle nose pliers, by pulling the nails down and out away from the tool body, you'll have to take the front nose of the tool apart (not normally needed, except in really severe jams).

If the tool isn't jammed, try putting in a new full strip of nails and pull back on the spring about a inch or two and let it go, so it'll push the nail strips all thw way forward, which will make sure the nailer isn't being locked out by the "last nail" safety switch.

Lastly, you need to clean the tool, as they don't work reliably when dirty, so follow the cleaning instructions that Paslode provides with the tool (they're tool involved and lengthy to type here)

Some other things you can check are to make sure the fuel cell cap is properly seated on the fuel cell, by pushing it all way on both sides till it clicks in place. Also, you can check for fuel flow by briefly depressing the fuel cell against a flat surface (no open flames nearby!!) to see if you're getting any fuel squirting out of the cell, as sometimes that helps to get the fuel flowing.

It also needs to be warm enough to operate. These tools don't do well when subjected to very cold temps. I always keep the batteries and fuel cells inside when the temps are below 40 degrees.

I've found that the Paslode finish nailers jam frequently due to the plastic carrier that holds the nails together, so I don't bother trying to use any small nail strips, (2-6 nails left) as they tend to cause problems. It's more productive to just use full to 1/3 strips of nails and avoid the possibility of jamming that comes with trying to load in some 2-6 nail strips.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
