SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: 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.

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

I have a paslode airless framer that wont fire. New batterry & fuel cell. It make the noise but wont fire


Hello harderconstr, I have that nail gun myself, and when it's working good it is a great tool to have.
Here are a few suggestions.
1. Remove the battery, make sure that you don't have a nail jammed in the the firing chamber, that has happened to mine before.

2. Adjust the depth tension on the end of the gun. You should have an alen wrench to loosen the adjuster at the tip. Slide the adjuster away from the gun, ( out ) as far as it will go and then tighten it back down. Reinstall the battery and try it again. You can re-adjust the tension after you see if this helps the problem. The adjuster on my gun was worn and I needed to adjust the tension to get it firing again.
3. I also got a new battery for my gun, and what I found was I really had to slide the battery in pretty hard to get it to click in place. Also, when you hold the gun in your right hand, the thumb side of the handle should have a very small LED light, red means it's not ready to fire, green means it is ready to fire. Make sure you have a green light.
I hope this helps you my friend!

Paslode framer when you depress trigger there no resistance and it does not fire


Paslode framer has a lever inside of trigger that may be bent or missing. Easy to check. Remove air line and nails. Remove trigger by pulling pin. Check under trigger for missing parts. Test gun by connecting to air and place nose of gun against wood or hard rubber and then depress firing pin. If gun fires then problem is with lever under trigger or safety mechanism which is in two parts. Check safety for bent or broken piece, usually upper part will be missing lip that actually pushes on the lever. If however gun does not fire when firing pin is depressed, time for replacing orings in gun. Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com . Good luck with your repair and post again if you have other questions.

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!

Firing pin not retracting far enough to allow nails forward


Yes,this is a common "mis fire" by Pasilode. I own the 16p Framer and the Angle nailer and I never get it from the Framer but I do get it seldom from Trim Gun,nothing you can do ,its just a misfire.

Paslode works intermittently


I had a similar problem with my impulse framer. The solution was to adjust the battery contacts within the gun. The contacts were not making good connection with the battery. I also adjusted the safety foot out to max so that the trigger mech. could function more reliably. Other problems I have had with this gun were related to the proper seating of the fuel cylinder and condition of the battery. My battery would no longer hold a proper charge causing the red light error.
