Open Question

Swingline stapler (model 51110) does not staple. Ok, this thing makes the stapling sound but does not staple. I have found that when I fill the tray with staples it does not close all the way. However even with just a third filled and a completely closed tray the stapler makes all the sounds, even puts an indent in the paper, but does not apply a staple. I've shaken out all the little loose batches of staples and even four or five pressed together single staples. There is now no noise of anything ratteling around when I shake this thing. I've removed the six screws from the bottom but am not able to pry the two pieces of moulding apart without what I think would be undue force. I'm wondering if there's a way to get the slider tray out all the way and see if anything is behind it.

SOURCE: stapler constantly shoots out staples even when there is nothing to staple.

There is a contact switch / lever on the staplers that engages the stapler when it is pressed. It must be stuck. locate the lever and see if that's the case, and release it if you can. just my 2 cents, because I'm a copier/fax tech -not a stapler expert :)

My staples are stapling backwards.


Take your staples out of your stapler and reinsert new ones.
Try that and see if it makes any difference.

Swingline optima 40 how do you open and close the stapler?


Swingline heavy duty staplers provide the power to staple up to 120 pages of 20-lb. paper easily and consistently. The all-metal construction of these staplers makes them an indispensible office tool. However, the way to load staples into a Swingline heavy duty stapler differs from the method for loading most other manual staplers and can cause a little confusion.
Difficulty:Easy Instructions

    • 1 Remove the follow block at the back of the stapler by pushing the mechanism in, lifting the block up over the holding hooks and sliding it out from the stapler. The follow block is the spring-loaded mechanism that holds the staples in place within the stapler.
    • 2 Load the heavy-duty staples into the staple tray.
    • 3 Replace the follow block by inserting it back into the stapler and locking it into place over the holding hooks.

Trying to load the staples into a model #90010. They're fine except at the very front of the stapler, they wont go all the way down flush with the others and the chamber won't even close.


1. Make sure you have the correct staples for the machine, Swingline Hvy-Duty Staples for 90010 Stapler, 0.625-Inch Leg Length, 2500 per Box (90009)


2. Check the staples to make sure there are no visible jams. Remove some staples from the row if this helps them fit.

3. If you continue to have problems, contact the manufacturer at http://www.acco.com/swingline/, or

Phone: 800.790.7787

They will replace the stapler if needed.

My Swingline Stapler Model 51110 electric stapler no longer staples. The staples will not move forward and it just does "blank" stapling. Also, it goes off on it's own all the time running stapples...


I have the same issue; however, there is some resinous material that came out of it as a result of my trying to figure out why it wasn't stapling anymore. Anyone know where I can take it for repair?

My Swingline model 520e jams every other time I staple.


There were a few staples left in the cartridge when the stapler stopped working. I went thru all the steps on bottom for stapler after changing the cartridge with two different cartridges. It makes the noise and puts marks in the paper, but no staples come out of it.
