SOURCE: Need cleaning instructions for ITW Paslode Impulse

I would recommend you go to and under support there is a section for cleaning of these tools. I can tell you how to do it but it is indepth. What kind of cleaning solution do you have? You can't just use anything to clean them. Also the red light on means a failure. Does the fan work? Does it have fire and it also means that the battery is weak. They also have a good troubleshooting section on the site. Let me know if I can help further.

ET200 won't shoot nails. The light works but it doesn't shoot. The chamber is clear of jammed nails HELP!

I had this problem too, and finally figured out what was wrong. If you have cleared a jam and have put the nail gun back together, then all you get is a 'thunk' when you try to drive a brad, you have put it back together wrong, as I did. Take the two screws out and pull out all four pieces -- three plates and one skinny 'T' shaped piece. Look inside the unit and you'll see a pointed piece, which is the hammer that drives the brad in. This next step is key: put the first plate back in (the one that is flat on both sides) making sure that it slides in UNDER the hammer. The hammer fits loosely in its housing, so it may help to turn the nailer upside down so that the hammer falls down, giving you the room you need to get the plate in--again, so that it's UNDER the hammer when you turn the nailer back over. Once you have done this part, simply slide the second piece in (the one with the fluted strip down the middle), slide it in fluted side up, then the 'T' piece (with the 'T' in first) then the last piece with the wider groove that contains the 'T' piece. Replace screws and you're back in business! This information may be in the instructions, but I have long ago thrown those away.

Bostitch framing nailer f21pl jammed 2 nails need to know how to clear the jam.

better to take it to a nailer repair shop, some nail jams can be very tricky, but if you are going to try to fix it. use a nail punch or other metal rod and with a hammer you might can remove the nails, DO NOT use a piece of metal that is larger than the nose.

Jammed nail gun fc350a

Nail guns will jam when driving nails thru very hard wood, solid objects, allowing the gun to double fire hitting the first nail or using the wrong nails(amoung some of the reasons, you get the idea that jamming is common) . There is no special tool to help in case of jam. You must be creative. I use an old driver shaft from nailer that easily fits into the nose of the gun (you can grind a piece of allen wrench to fit into nose and allow space for the stuck nail). The metel that you use must be very hard and strike with heavy copper or brass hammer (caution, steel hammer may splinter metal, use protective gear ). You will need to strike very hard to remove some stuck nails. If first or second strike results in no movement of driver, remove the head and cylinder of the nailer and place the body of the gun squarely on piece of plywood over concete floor (this will protect the head of the nailer from being damaged). Worst case, you will need to remove the rails. Good luck.

Nail jamed in Nr90AD model heard their is a recall on this model it is nearly new received from father as a gift

I have the same nailer and I got a nail jammed in it when I hit a piece of metal.

I had to take the magazine off then remove the safety. This can be done with a hex key and a small wrench. Onece I had access to the nail head I banged it out with a hammer and small punch. It all depends on how and where its jammed, hopefully you don't have to take it apart and can just pull it out with pliars.

Nailer drives one nail but driver pin doesn,t retract back into nailer head

Remove the air hose and open the nailer head section. Look for a foreign object in this are that could be jamming the drive pin. Also, make sure you are using the right size nails.

Help! My finishing nailer seems to have stopped driving the nail, period. It sounds like it is working but I am not sure if the hammer is even pulling back into the driver enough to actually drive...

It sounds like your gun has jammed. The fix isn't hard. First, though,make sure that your compressor is putting up sufficient pressure. Most of my jams happen when I drive brads and forget to turn the compressor back on! If the pressure is good, you'll need to check for a jammed brad. Disconnect the gun from the compressor. Pull back the slide and remove the brads from the magazine. At the front of the nailer, you'll find a cover, close to where the brads exit the gun. Open the cap and it will reveal a tab that will give you access to the nailing slide. Your gun probably came with allen wrenches, and they may be located on the gun, or in the case. Mine are along the slide, tucked in, and look like a part of the gun. You'll need an allen wrench (most likely) to remove the two allen screws that hold the cover assembly to the gun. Remove the screws, making note how the piece comes off. With the piece off you should be able to see where the brads come to the nailer from the magazine. Look for a hung up brad here. If you note a silvery piece of metal in front of the magazine, fear not, that is the hammer slide. The compressed air powers the slide down, peeling a brad from the magazine and driving it in. If necessary, you can gently press the slide back up. Try not to bend it. Locate the jammed brad(s) and wiggle them out of the gun to clear it. Sometimes it is easier to push them back into the magazine and shake them out. It takes a little finessing to get it right, but perservere. Reassembly is the reverse of the break down. Oil your gun daily. I put a few drops of oil into the air inlet at the gun before I connect the air line, and then drive a few brads into scrap wood.
Hope this gets you going on your project.

Senco staple fastener not firing.

Make sure you actually removed the entire broken staple and there's not a piece still wedged up in there somehow.
Try raising the air pressure up to 125 psi and plug it in and unplug it a few times. Sometimes the piston can get jammed, and a smack with the palm of your hand on the side of the cylinder will jar it loose. If that doesn't work, try pulling the trigger as you jam the nose of the gun against a soft piece of 2x4 or something, repeatedly firing and jarring the tool. If this doesn't do it, you may have to open it up to clear the jam and put it back together.
