Try the other order, where you depress the gun first, and then pull the trigger.

My Senco SFN1 finish nailer will not shoot a nail. When the trigger is pulled air comes out but no nail is shot. Thanks,Steve L

Not sure about Senco but most have latch you can open to expose firing mechanism. Nail sometimes gets jammed and will not allow driver to fire or if not nail push driver ****** all the way back into gun then see if gun will fire.

Paslode framer when you depress trigger there no resistance and it does not fire

Paslode framer has a lever inside of trigger that may be bent or missing. Easy to check. Remove air line and nails. Remove trigger by pulling pin. Check under trigger for missing parts. Test gun by connecting to air and place nose of gun against wood or hard rubber and then depress firing pin. If gun fires then problem is with lever under trigger or safety mechanism which is in two parts. Check safety for bent or broken piece, usually upper part will be missing lip that actually pushes on the lever. If however gun does not fire when firing pin is depressed, time for replacing orings in gun. Parts are available at . Good luck with your repair and post again if you have other questions.

Impulse gun wont fire and fan doesnt run

could be a bent probe not allowing full travel of the safety , fan motor, loose wire, or circuit assembly. If you are handy with tools, remove the battery and fuel cell. remove the 4 screws holding the cover on top of the cylinder assembly and down where the saety is remove the 2 screws there also. gently pull the cylinder off the tool. when you have apart check toe condition of the Oring on the top plate where the fan motor is. Now reinsert the battery and you will see a rocker switch towards the top, depress it and the fan motor should come on. if not try and depress the trigger switch and again the fan motor should come on. If neither start looking for loose or broken wires, if you find none then I would guess the terminal board would be bad. you can also remove the handle halves and look for a loose connection at the board itself, they sometimes wiggled loose where it plugs in. Good luck and let me know.

My paslode wont shoot i cleaned the gun recently and oiled also the light is green and i compress the tip to shoot and it wont but the fan still comes on to vent the gas i also put a brand new gas in

Paslode nail guns won't shoot

piston is probably jammed

This happens sometimes try holding it up against a board with the trigger depressed and then inset the battery.

The goal is to try to force the firing sequence to get the piston back to the right position with corded units this is simply done by attaching the air hose with the trigger pulled this causes air to rush into the gun chamber pushing the piston back and firing a nail out.

The cause of this is a misfire or jammed nail that stopped the piston in the wrong location so air will not build in the chamber correctly.

Hope that helps

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 like a charm.

Paslode nail gun not firing

Yes you need to oil driver blade piston.
You need to check for spark. With no nail or gas in it. Take of main cylinder(4bolts on top, 2 bolts on nose. And then put in battery. And then push upper switch(behind roller at top) and the fan will come on. And then pull the trigger. You should have spark.

Paslode cordless framer wont fire. new gas , charged battery,

K, this could be a couple problems. How far down did you take it to clean? Are you comfortable with removing the combustion chamber/housing from unit. There are 4 screws in the top cover and 2 down where the work contact is. Remove them leaving just the fan assembly and handle housing. Next locate the roller arm next to the fan assembly, put a fresh battery in tool and push the arm (KEEPING HANDS AWAY FROM FAN) the fan should come on, if not you probably have an electronic assembly that is bad, if it does come on it should stop in a few seconds. Next depress the trigger and again the fan should come on. Now to diagnose the firing unit. Depress the lever on the roller arm and hold in while pulling trigger, you should see a spark and also hear it where the plug is. If not then you either have a spark unit that is bad or a wiring problem. At this point I would take in for repair. The spark unit is around 90-100 dollars When you put back together did you also replace the orings or clean the ring grooves? Let me know if you have any questions
