I had the same problem... even after cleaning it and replacing the spark plug. ...Only solution was to send it to a service center for repair.

Paslode 900420 fires only one nail and the battery has to be pulled and reinsert to fire again. After shooting one nail, the light alternate between green and Red. I have tried new fuel cell and fresh...


It needs to be cleaned and oiled. You can buy an electrical cleaner spray and oil specific for paslodes at Home Depot. You will have to take the back off (where the filter is) and clean it with the cleaning spray then oil it well. Put it back together and it will work like new again. You will be surprised how much difference it will make. Good luck

Paslode impulse framing nailer , iv cleaned gun and oiled , the fan works etc . seems to only fire if i have fully charged battery ,once used for about five minutes it stops firing . only way to get it...


When it stops firing is the little light on the side of the handle green or red? If it is red then the battery is draining down too quickly. Either the fan switch has malfunctioned causing the fan to run all the time (I have seen this before) or you got either a faulty battery or charger.

My paslode impulse framing nailer quit working. It fired and the fan shut of prematurely then it would not fire and the fand would not run. The blinking green LED light in the handle is blinking green...


It sounds like the contacts in the plunger are dirty or bad. Or even a wire for the contacts is loose. My guess is when you took it apart to clean it and replace the Orings you had moved the loose connection so it worked for a minute. On mine, I went all through the gun only to discover the wire feeding through the gas chamber was squished and broken inside. The wire's plastic insulation did not even have a hole in it. If you take it apart again check the wires carefully, check the contact points to make sure they are clean as well.
Another note, my father had issues with his and we went through it with a fine tooth comb. In the end we discovered it was a dirty contact in the gun where his battery hit. The battery itself was fine but once we cleaned the batteries terminals with a pencil eraser and plugged it into the gun we noticed one of the contacts had black stuff on it from the contact inside the gun. Works great every since.

Paslode nail gun 325 black not firing


Any time these guns become intermittent or stop firing but the fan still runs, the first the to check is the expiration date on the gas cartridges. The do expire and this will make the gun work inconsistently or not at all.

Paslode 1st fix gun .battery fully charged and placed into gun.the light flashes green and the gun will fire once after which the light flashes red and the gun will not fire.any ideas.i have tryed other...


I would look at the fuel cell on the bottom is a expiration date and they will not fire older fuel. Also do you remove the battery and it does the same thing? When you depress the safety on the work can you hear the fan motor? You say the tool is clean does it have enough lube to move all items freely. Just a couple thoughts, Also look at the spark plug wire for being broke or coming out of the spark unit. Let me know and we will go into this deeper.

Paslode framing nailer 1998 yr. model when engaged wont fire


you have spark and cleaned tool correct, but fan won't turn that freely, if so the fan motor is bad, it should come on when you pull the trigger or move the roller lever for the safety. The fan is about 80.00 Let me know if I missed something and how did you check the spark?

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
