SOURCE: Swingline Stapler Staples Only After You Open It Up....

When you lift up the top of the stapler (as though you are going to put staples in), does the pusher slide freely back and forth? It might be getting stuck at some point and not pushing the staples (either due to a worn pusher spring, or friction). First (after removing the staples) try spraying some light oil on the mechanism and lifting the top part of the stapler up and down a few times and observe how easily it moves back and forth. Also, with the top open try GENTLY sliding back and forth a little - if it slides fine with no sticking, try loading staples and using stapler. If it slides ok, but doesn't quickly return to it's "normal position" when pulled so as to put tension on the spring, rhen the spring may be worn and need replacing.

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 :)

SOURCE: there's a jammed staple but I can't figure out how to open it to fix the problem and refill it

This is how it works on the Arrow staple gun. On the back bottom, opposite end from where the staples come out, there is a little plate. Push it in and it unhooks and pops out. attached to a rod. When you refill with staples, just push them in, then put the rod back in and the spring applies the pressure.

SOURCE: Panosonic Electric Stapler does not staple paper!

It could be either jammed up with staples or the spring mechanism is shoddy.

Where can I get a couple Panasonic AS-500 Commercial Staplers repaired? Have tried calling Panasonic at 1-800-405-0652 option 4 but got nowhere.


This is a rather rare request, as very few places fix staplers.
I should recommend you find a "handy-man", maybe an older person with a hobby, and he may be able to help you.
I fix staplers, but have only been successful about 50% of the time.
God bless your efforts.

Help please! I have a Paper Pro high capacity stapler that will not staple. I can open it up and put staples inside, but no staple will come out when pushed down. Oddly enough, if I put ONE staple inside...


are you using the correct size of staple?? (thickness wise) secondly check the spring is pushing as it should, also a fix to get it working is as you put the staple stack into the stapler, seperate them and see if will staple. other than that it's defective and you should purchase a new one.

How do I open the staple compartment? Already tried the back button


Pushing the button should eject the staple compartment from the front of the unit. It sounds as if the stapler compartment is jammed or corroded.
While pushing the button, attempt to pull the compartment from the front of the stapler. It should slide out like a drawer. Try pulling on the front of the compartment while applying a little pressure in different directions.
You may have to use a small tool to grab the compartment if you can't get a good grip. You may have to use some force. Use only as much pressure as you're comfortable with.
When you do open the compartment, inspect all moving parts and bearing points to be sure nothing is jammed, bent, corroded or seeing excess wear. Remove a jam with small pliers, being sure to get the entire staple. Use fine sand paper on corrosion and then treat with a bit of oil.

Hi, my staple gun will not staple. It makes the right noise and puts a dint in the wood but not staple comes out. I can't work out how to take it apart to look inside. Can you provide me with basic...


Here is some honesty. I would ask you for your make and model number first of all to have a clue what stapler we are talking about. The I would go to this site: http://www.ereplacementparts.com and look it up by Make and Model number. Then by looking at the diagram I could tell you how to take it apart. Hopefully you can use this same process to make your repairs and to find replacement parts. If not... I need the make and model number so I can just what I stated above. (I have yet to find a service manual for a non-commercial use stapler.)

Thanks,
Kelly

AS 300 electric stapler--pulled out jammed staples but even though it staples, it won't grab the staples (staples as though empty)


What has most likely happened is part of a staple is stuck in the front portion of the stapler where it forms the staple and presses it into the stapler.
You would most likely have to remove the stapler, and remove the binding staple from the stapler head.
