SOURCE: The stapler is not working

Take a can of can air after you have removed the staples cartridge and blow out the socket that the staples fir into. Sometimes a jammed staple can stick in there and cause problems. Also if you can remove the bottom blade of staples out of the staple cartridge. Just raise that piece with the green on it and carefully remove just one blade.

If that does not work you most likely need a new stapler assembly and they could cost 2-$300. retail. If its under contract with a dealer this should be replaced for free.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: Swingline Stapler Staples Only After You Open It Up....

When you lift up the top of the stapler (as though you are going to put staples in), does the pusher slide freely back and forth? It might be getting stuck at some point and not pushing the staples (either due to a worn pusher spring, or friction). First (after removing the staples) try spraying some light oil on the mechanism and lifting the top part of the stapler up and down a few times and observe how easily it moves back and forth. Also, with the top open try GENTLY sliding back and forth a little - if it slides fine with no sticking, try loading staples and using stapler. If it slides ok, but doesn't quickly return to it's "normal position" when pulled so as to put tension on the spring, rhen the spring may be worn and need replacing.

SOURCE: stapler is not dispensing staples after new cartridge is inserted. Can you help?

Remove the staple cartridge, look into the cartrige area, are there any stray staples in this area, if so remove them, cycle the unit a couple of times without the cartrige in place, check the output end, any stray staples here? re assemble making sure you pull the first row ow staples even with the nozzle of the cartrige.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: Crown Stapler stopped shooting staples

Did you look for a staple jammed in the driver mechanism? If the piston is stuck down, it won't respond to the trigger. Try smacking the top of the stapler onto a wooden bench to see if the force will release the piston. Make sure that you use air-tool oil for lubrication inside the tool. Hope this gets you running!

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

I have tried to reload the stapler but it will NOT staple What am I doing wrong?


1. Make sure you have the correct staples for the machine. This machine requires "standard" staples, which are 1/4" staples.

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

3. Check the power connection to the stapler. Is it plugged in? Is the plug working?

4. If you continue to experience problems, contact the manufacturer at
1-800-STAPLES. They will replace the stapler if it continues to malfunction.

I can't seem to reload staples into this stapler. I used the staples that came with it and it worked fine. I try reloading and it doesn't staple.


With the stapler sitting a solid surface, turn it 180 degrees so it is pointed away from you, and you are looking at the back. Press down on the plastic extension that you see (about mid-height on the stapler). This releases the staple-holding compartment (it shoots out the front of the stapler). Reload it with standard staples, push the compartment back in place until you hear a click. Voila!

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!

WHERE do I open it to refill it??


Located on the end opposite of where the staples come out, there is a spring loaded cap. Push it in toward the base of the stapler and slightly down to release the retaining hook. then let the spring release the pressure rod and pull it out. Connedted to the end of the rod you will see a plunger that is shaped like a short run of staples. Make a mental note of how and where this plunger slides into the base of the stapler. Place a run of staples into the stapler in the same manner that the plunger fits then replace the plunger into the same place following the run of staples. Compress the spring into the stapler and attach the hook as it was. Now you are ready to work.

NOTE: If you cannot compress the spring enough into the stapler you have inserted too many staples, just remove some of the run of staples and try again.

Our Canon NP6035 copier won't staple. It had a jam in the stapler, which I removed. We installed a new staple cartridge. The stapler makes indentions in the paper, but it won't advance any staples.


Do you have a 10 or 20 bin finisher? I'm guessing you have a 10 bin. Did you install the stapler cartridge in correctly? There is a small black plastic gear that cracks and the stapler will not work. The two way's to solve the problem is to replace the gear or the stapler unit. Both may be had to find. Good Luck

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.
