My paslode will not drive a 3 1/4'' nail in pine lumber, but it will drive a 2'' nail in the same lumber. i have took it apart and cleaned it with the paslode cleaner and used the paslode oil put it back together and the same thing happens, so i take it all the way apart take the piston out clean everything so i could eat off of it oil all put together and drive 5 nails and back to where i started. so now what? trash it?

Check your air tank for moisture , drain it and put a oiler on it, or just oil it your self. put at least 3 to 4 drops run the proper amount of air they want you to run.

Paslode 18 gage finish nailer wont sink nails all the way


How old is it. Check the nail drive area to see if it is sticky etc. You may have to take it apart to fully check that out and/or to clean it and lube it. TRY spraying it with WD40 first.

Friend took my 900420 nailer apart to clean it and when he got done, had a small spring about 3/16" x 1" left over. Does anyone have a clue where it might go?


Thin spring?
Goes in-between the Follower Guide and Button.
There are several Coil springs used in a Paslode 900420 framing nailer.

1.In-between the Upper Probe and the Lower Probe.
(Safety device you depress so the gun will shoot)
2.Trigger
3.Lockout Bar
4.Follower Guide and Button

(There is a flat spring also. Goes in-between the Probe Stop and Probe Release)

Here let me show you,

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!

I have paslode finishing nail gun , i cleaned it, not working now


The smoking is normal for a few times after cleaning ,but you might have put to much oil drops in chamber and piston chamber is getting a "vapor lock". Try recleaning with degreaser. Also have you forgotten to set the depth gauge at front of nose.

Paslode framing nailer loss of power.


Here's what I found at the Paslode Troubleshooting Site:
Tool will not cycle - fan runs, indicator light
is solid green.

Lockout bracket is stuck in lockout position.
Work-contacting element is bent, or build-up of
debris in track restricts operation.
Follower is not behind fasteners.
Fuel Cell empty.
Spark wire out of spark plug.
Spark plug is dirty.
No spark is generated.
Check lockout.

Remove and inspect lower probe. Clean and
lubricate track with Paslode Impulse® oil.
Repair or replace lower probe as required.
Position follower behind fasteners.
Replace fuel cell.
Remove cap and check spark lead, insert in
spark plug and replace cover.
Clean tool cylinder head and spark plug.

If this doesn't work, I suggest contacting Paslode directly 800-222-6990
