Does the motor run but does not fire a nail? If this is the case chances are the belt came off the flywheel. This is one of the most common problems when these will not fire.
If the headlights go on but the motor does not run it could be a bad switch or contact trip.

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.

Paslode 350 nailer wont work , push to fire fan works for 2 seconds then light flashes from green to red


Hi,
Sounds like a battery contact problem or a bad battery..


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.

My dc 616 wont fire. the lights are on solid when first put battery in then when you depress nose to fire, it clicks and the lights flash constantly thereafter


The driver is probably stuck. The manual tells you how to access the front of the device. Check there (I have also had several hard to find jams) - be sure to remove all nails first.

The driver is silver in color, so it's easy to see if it's jammed. Use a slotted screwdriver to push it back up. I have had this happen more than a few times.

Hi the gun wont fire


Had the same problem with mine. Remove the 3 screws on top and remove the lid. on mine the firing pin assembly was jammed. If the roller seems to be holding the pin carriage too tight then you need to prise up the spring mechanism over the carriage. To do this go to the end at the back of the machine and insert a screwdriver between the top carriage and the frame. prise gently and it should pop up. the firing pin should now move freely

My hitachi nailer wont fire


Start with the basics:
First check that the butane (or whatever gas is used) canister is full. If empty, put in a new one.

Second check to make sure your battery is fully charged to be able to fire the spark to work the nail gun. If not get the battery charged and/or replaced as needed.

Third make sure all of the safeties are working properly and that you have them engaged to the piece of wood you are nailing when you try the trigger.

If beyond that it does not work it could be a bad trigger, a bad safety switch, or even a bad connection from the battery to the device.

IM250 Paslode straight brad nailer, fan wont shut off


My paselode was doing the same thing, and I followed all of the cleaning instructions, but the problem continued.

If it was left alone for a minute, it would fire again, so I removed the cover over the trigger assy, and checked the spark plug wire connection. The trigger came out, and during reassembly, I noticed that the electrical switch was hanging, and slowly pushing back out.

I cleaned and lightly spray/oiled the switch pin, and voila.........works like a charm.

Hitachi Framing Gun Not Firing - Bad Battery?


Does the fan run and the light blink ont he nailer? I have one that I just bought. I put in the wrong type of nails and got one stuck. I had to take the front apart to clear it and now the damm thing wont fire. The green light blinks and the gas cartridge is basically full, even the fan does run after I release the push lever, but no fire???

I wonder if yours is the same as mine did fire for a couple nails first just fine then got jammed...

I will try to charge the battery more.... MAybe like yours it needs a strong charge for the spark...
