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 nailer will not send the nail all the way in

Good morning

Daft though it may seem, is the depth of drive adjustment set correctly? If so then it could be either gas that is out of date or a fuel cell that has not been manufactured correctly. Just pop a brand new cell that is a genuine branded product and see if this cures the issue. If not, then take it to you're local repair centre.

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

The framing nailer first started not firing all the time and when it did - the nail didn't go all the way in. Now - even though we installed a new cell and fully charged battery - i does nothing. ...

ive found that sometimes where the batt is inserted into the gun theres two contacts down there wit a rubber pads the contacts rest against. check and see with a flash lite if one of the rubber pads has pulled away and wraped itself around the contact, if so pull it out with needle nose pliers or what ever works.if not the problem make sure your batt is good some will read 6 volts but will have no or week current. worst case repAIR SHOP.

Nail not firing, battery charged, fuel cell good,

When you took it apart to clean it, you may have piched off the large brown o-ring on the head valve. To check this, take the orange head valve cover off and push the gun downard onto a piece of wood as if firing it. Watch the o-ring to see if it clears all the metal fingers around the fan.
