IM250 Paslode straight brad nailer, fan wont shut off

My paslode finishing nail gun (IM250} seems to work fine for the first 'shot' then the fan wont shut off and then doesn't fire again. I then remove the battery and then the fan starts as soon as the battery is re-inserted. Howerver if the gun is left for some time the same thing occurs, one shot and then the fan. I've cleaned the gun thoroughly and personally think it may be something to do with the circuit board or the head switch assembly not allowing the spark plug to spark? Some expert advice would be appreciated.

    check the probe to make sure that it is fully resetting to enable the next shot. It could be bent and hanging up. after you fire the tool it should move freely. you can isolate and check the spark itself but that is more involved, let me know and I will try and help

My paselode was doing the same thing, and I followed all of the cleaning instructions, but the problem continued.

If it was left alone for a minute, it would fire again, so I removed the cover over the trigger assy, and checked the spark plug wire connection. The trigger came out, and during reassembly, I noticed that the electrical switch was hanging, and slowly pushing back out.

I cleaned and lightly spray/oiled the switch pin, and voila.........works like a charm.

Chances are your battery clip is worn and sliding down not making contact with the battery contacts. if this is the case try shooting it a few times holding the battery pushed in

I am using senco gas in a paslode 2nd fixing nail gun. Is the senco gas 'bad for' my gun in any way as i am having a few firing problems


You can use most gases in your gun, but paslode is the best that's why its more expensive. Try warming the gases in your pocket that sometimes helps.
