Question about RTO Paslode 902000 IM250 Ii Cordless 16 Gauge 3/4 2 1/2 Inch Straight Finish Nailer

3 Answers

When I fire my im250 the firing pin often does not retract fully, so not letting the next nail to progress. I regularly clean and lub the gun and it fires all the time so the problem is not at that end of the gun. Does ayone have any ideas?

Using a wire "toothbrush" size brush, clean the track in front of the gun where the pin slides - where the nail groove is. **** particles from the nails and the plating from the nails sluffs off fouling the path and causes the pin to stick. After several cleanings of my gun, I noticed that this brushing of the track the firing pin follows keeps it operating for several days without the problem recurring!

Pull the gun apart and check that your metal rings on the piston and at the back of the gun are at opposite ends if not it wont have compression to push it all the wayback also if you spray cleaner down the barral make sure u turn gun up side down to let dirt come back out or all your doing is blocking up the exaust which will make the driving pin not return back

Lube the air input so the piston is moving freely. If the gun has ALOT of use on it. your return spring is compressed. Disassemble and re-stretch or replace the spring.

While it is apart, make sure the pin driver is unbent with no nicks ALL the way in.

Polich, lube and replace the pin driver.

GUN FIRES BUT NAIL DOESN'T COME OUT


I am assuming the driver travels down but misses the nail, if so the end of the driver pin may be worn, a quick fix is to touch the end of the driver on a grinding wheel to reface it, ensure you remove the least amount of material possible to maintain the driver length, if this doesn't fix the problem you may need to replace the front plate

Hitachi nail gun


If gun firing but nails not being driven could be one of two basic problems:
1. Nail jammed in magazine not allowing nails to move up.
Empty magazine, does follower move to top of magazine. Push gun against work piece, does fan motor start? Yes - jam in magazine or lock out bar not operating. (this would allow nail un to fire when out of nails)
2. Piston/driver not returning fully after firing, hence driver blade on top of next nail instead of behind it. This could again be caused by a jammed nail or just a nail head. Another case of not returning is the combustion chamber not making a good seal, check O rings on framer (they are steel rings on bradders) it may just need a good clean it is surprising how dirty they can get and if not cleaned a build up of dirt could break a seal. If not been cleaned for a long time worth checking piston rings, worst case scenario dirt builds up around the rings and stick fully in requiring new piston if the rings will not come out.
Nail guns work on the principle that an explosion pushes the piston driver forcing a nail into the work piece, after the explosion a vacuum is created and it is this that 'sucks' the piston/driver back up the cylinder.

Pull the trigger, no nail, only continuos air until I release tyhe trigger. not jammed, gun is clean, very new. acted that way right out of the box then it worked and then not and so on, worked...


Safety foot and lever inside of trigger are not pushing the trigger pin all the way in. To verifty that the gun will fire, remove the nails to allow for dry fire. Remove the trigger to reveal the trigger valve. Hold the gun against old coiled rubber hose or soft wood. Very quickly depress the trigger pin all the way in. If the gun fires, adjust safety foot and trigger so that the trigger pin is fully depressed when your bump fire. If the gun will not fire after adjustment, remove the head and lube headvalve/orings with silicone paste lube.

I have an fc350a nail gun. After firing one time, the piston will not retract until the air hose is removed from the gun.


May need a new firing valve or safety foot is sticking. Easy to check, Remove air supply, nails and remove the trigger to expose the firing pin. Connect air and place the nose of the gun against thick rubber or coiled air hose. Depress trigger and let go. Gun should fire and trigger pin will return to original position. If piston still does not retract then problem is with trigger valve and most likely the rest of the orings within the gun will need replacing. Not expensive. Remove the air supply and look closely at the firing pin, if it moves quite a bit from side to side and looks worn time to replace. If it look to be in good condition, then orings within trigger valve may be swollen and will not allow the trigger to function. You can remove the valve by removing the 3mm roll pins above the valve and applying air pressure to pop out the valve. Use heavy glove to catch the valve because it could come out with force (reduce air pressure to gun if possible). If gun works ok examine safety foot mech for problem. Use silicone paste lube on orings. good luck

Paslode (30 degrees) framing gun firing pin not retracting


The tool needs to be completely torn down, cleaned out, two orings inside need replaced, re-lubed and re-assembled. takes a technician about 1 hour to do it right. I believe either the orings or dirt is your problem. If blade doesn't return its probably the orings.

Feeding nails


Your nailer shares design features with Milwaukee and Ridgid. All three brands experience the same issue. Lets go thru a series of simple tests to determine the problem. First and most simple test, manually load the nails and fire the gun untill miss-fire. Upon mis-fire disconnect air, open latch and check if the driver is all the way up into the cylinder or is partially down blocking next nail. If driver is down blocking next nail, replace the driver oring and retest. If driver is up all the way, remove nails, reconnect airline, leave latch open and fire gun against rubber (old tire or coiled up waterhose/airhose) this time holding the gun down and keeping the trigger depressed. In this position, the driver will remain down and feeder will remain retracted. With feeder retracted and screwdriver in hand carefully check the spring tension on the feeder (should be rather firm tension on spring and the feeder must retract with good force). If no tension or weak, replace feed spring. When you finally release the trigger, the driver will retract and the feeder should return with good force. If feeder does not return with force, replace orings and spring behind feed piston. If all tests are ok, remove head, check lower bumper in gun for cracks or missing pieces. Replace as necessary. Lube all orings with silicone lube available at Lowes in the plumbing department. (Danco brand) Good luck on your repair and email your questions.

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.

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.
