20 Most Recent RTO PasLode 900420 Impulse Framing Nailer Questions & Answers

If you send the model number I can give you a specific part number, but the issue is the head switch is stuck on.
This can be caused by a bad switch or the cylinder not returning entirely.

Make sure the spark plug ignites. Take tool apart as in cleaning. Hold micr switch near fan and watch as you pull trigger. you will see a spark. If not check the lead to igniter

Not really, you can check the spark unit by taking the cylinder assembly off as a unit and you will find a lever at the top, put a battery in tool and depress this lever, the fan should run for a few seconds and then shut off, next depress the trigger and the same should happen. Then while holding the lever (watch fingers on fan) depress the trigger and you should get spark, if not I would look for a loose spark plug wire at the spark unit, check for the wires grounding on the head assembly and broken wires there also. Also when checking at the spark unit make sure one of the 2 plugs is not partially pulled up. The simplest thing to replace is the circuit assembly, but if you have it apart it would be worthwhile to take it to a shop and see if they can change one part or the other to ensure you get the right one first. Hope this helps.

instead trying looking at the switch(s) both for the trigger and the trip switch near the top depending which model it is some have the wires and others have the circuit panel setup which is far more finicky. does your fan run when the trigger is depressed at all?

Its called a lock-out, it goes close to the nose. On either side of the nose there are two screws. It goes on the side that has a slot between the metal plate and the plastic. Unscrew the two screws remove the plate it put the "z" and spring between plate and plastic housing. Put the two screws back. Now check to see the lock-out is being pushed up by the feeder when there are no nails in tool

Pull the gun apart completely and replace the black ignitor box that is situated in the handle

First the washer on the inside of the handle needs to be pryed off.
The button assembly is a push fit arrangement. Cut yourself 2 small timber wedges and knock them under the button on the outside of the handle, keep the pressure even and the orange pin will be pulled out.

Morning Andrew,

When was the tool last serviced? Seems rather strange that the fan has only turned 1/2 a rotation. Sometimes, the trigger unit can fail on this tool but.... I'd suggest that you don't try too many times as potentially, you could burn the fan motor out?

Just a thought though, if you disconnect the power to the fan, can you either see or, hear the spark being generated?
