Can't be more specific without model number.
Driver not returning to top of cylinder is caused by several issues. Bent driver, piston oring, and check valve. Remove head and pull out driver. The blade should be straight with no missing pieces. Driver piston should fit snugly into cylinder and not drop down cylinder under its own weight. If driver / piston look ok, pull out cylinder and look for check seal in place. It looks like rubber band or one or more orings and fit in groove/s with row of holes (make sure holes are clean). Other problems related to driver not returning is/are lower bumper is missing pieces or cracked and or air exhaust port is restricted, low air pressure.

What should I do if my brand new Fasco pneumatic upholstery stapler is leaking air through the tail end...not the hose, but the two holes in the handle? Any suggestions?


Hi Anonymus,


What's happened if the driver blade has stopped in mid stroke, the air will escape. Quickest was 'round this is to take the airline off the tool, then find some scrap wood, place the tool on it as though you're firing it, and in THIS ORDER... pull the trigger and re-connect the airline at the same time. This usually sorts this out. Regardless of the tool make and model this will happen to most users sometime....

Stapler trigger stuck


Check for a trigger lock/bar that slides up or down to unlock trigger. If no lock, take a small flathead screw driver and jiggle it in the back of the trigger.

Adjust depth on pneumatic stapler


I have noticed that many nailers do not have a way to adjust the depth. Usually there is a thumb screw under the trigger or on the side of the safety foot. If no visual way to adjust, you must get creative. The bumper stops the driver at the bottom of the cylinder. Adding layer of rubber (inner tube or similar) under the bumper will cause the driver extend less and shaving the bumper will cause it to drive deeper. Another method if to add material to tip of safety to space gun away from work (less deep, using various thickness of spacers like used on flooring nailers) or grind the tip of the driver (cant reverse but if driver is too long grind away) . Buy a spare driver and make adjustment to tip for when you need different setting. Good luck

Did you rebuild the tool? If not remove all the nails and unplug air, BUMP nose on piece of wood and does driver fall down? If so the pistion o ring needs to be replaced. Also if this is not the case look for a jammed nail in the magazine/nose area. Next check for a bent driver blade. All the above could cause your problem

I have a ns100a porter cable narrow crown stapler. The driver will not retract, so it will not shoot staples. what can be the problem and how can I fix it? Thanks Pam


Usually when the driver is slightly bent, it will not retract. Easy to check. Remove the head and pull out the cylinder and driver together. Adjust the driver or replace as needed.
