Oil it ... all air tools require a small amount of light oil inserted into the air tube prior to each use ... Did you drop it? inspect for damaged or bent parts in the problem area ... good luck

Paslode F16 finish nailer will not return to start position after firing. Need to pull it back.


You may have to disassemble it BUT it may be that the mechanism and sliding parts are dry and stuck with glue from nails etc so may also work to apply a rust solvent to the sliding parts and let it sit and work the nailer a bit etc.

Why does my roofing nail gun jamming, it would fire one nail and the hammer will remain out, so i toke a screw driver and push the hammer back in, and it still did the same thing


Simple test for piston jam. With nails removed and latch open, point nose of gun up then down. If the driver slides up and down in the cylinder as you move the gun, replace the piston oring (test gun for proper operation). If the piston stays in the upper most position as you move gun (push driver to top position), check lower bumper and bottom seal under the bumper (sheet). Replace as needed. If the lower parts are in good condition (good piston oring, lower bumper and sheet) , replace the 3 orings on the feeder piston. Good luck

Only shoots out one nail for every 4 or 5 trigger pulls


The gun will miss fire if the driver does not return to top position allowing nails to move into position. Could be bent driver, faulty trigger, cracked lower bumper or check valve not in place. Easy to check if trigger. Remove air supply, and remove the pin holding the trigger. Fire the nailer by depressing the firing pin with your finger. If the gun works ok, single fire trigger is faulty or safety foot is out of adjustment. If still miss fire, remove head and pull out cylinder and piston. Check for bent driver, cracked lower bumper or black band (check valve) is out of place on outer part of cylinder covering a row of holes.

My Bostitch MIII floor stapler is not driving staples. I partially drove one staple with a glancing blow then drove another on top. I cleared the jam and now it will not feed staples; It fires...


Slight damage to driver will prevent it from returning to top of cylinder (assuming that nailer worked correctly before double fire). Easy to check. Remove airline. Use metal or plastic to push driver to top of cylinder (should easily move). After the driver is at top, see if first cleat moved into proper positon. If cleat is not in position, check pusher and rails for debris. If cleat is in position, activate nailer to check for proper function. If driver does not return to top of cylinder and was difficult to push up, pull out driver and check for bent /damaged driver and replace orings and lower bumper while apart if parts look worn. Good luck

I have a Senco pro 35 18 gauge finish nailer been working fine now I just get air when I pull the trigger


could be a jammed nail in the nose/magazine area or a driver problem. is the driver fully retracted or stuck partially down in the nose. UNPLUG the air before checking. If the driver is partially down I would think a jam and fully retracted you might have an issue with the piston/driver assembly.

Gun fires, leaves good indentation, no nail. WCE working properly, took head apart to look for jam but nothing in there and am using compatible nails. Also oiled it but no luck. Was working fine doing...


Remove nails and use thin tool to push driver all the way up to top of cylinder. If the gun fires one nail then skips, the driver is not returning to top of cylinder. If no nails fire, then nails are not feeding into proper position. Driver must return to top to allow nails to feed into position. Most common problems are bent driver, worn piston oring and bad batch of nails(head too large). Good luck

My paslode angled finishing gun keeps jamming leaving the firing pin in the out position


Hi,

Here is a tip that I wrote about the Paslode nailers and the problems that can come up with them.

I also have a link to the Paslode manuals which contain Paslode cleaning and troubleshooting guides.

If you need parts for your Paslode, there also is a link for a site that sells the Paslode nailer parts.

Paslode pneumatic nailer will not fire at all...there is nothing I can see that is jamming it. Any suggestions or manuals?


Check gas expiry date, failing that reove four bolts from back and two from front nose and remove cylinder housing, check piston is free in cylinder and driver is right back, to check you have spark with battery in push and hold down switch arm just below fan and pull trigger you should see and hear the spark, if there is spark you may just need to clean arond spark plug to get a more positive spark, also check o-ring on fan housing as if this is damaged it will alow gas to escape and no ignite.
