The staples won't go all the way down on my Bostitch Heavy Duty Manual stapler. Why?

How old is it and how much has your stapler been used?
The hammer could have been bent, worn out, or broke a piece and is too short to push the staple all the way.
The only way to check it is to take it apart and see how the hammer looks.

My bht150 bostitch is jammed

First slide off the rubber grip This will expose a pin that you will need to remove. Remove the two bolts on top of the hammer with a 10mm wrench. These bolts hold the striker plate guide. Place the hammer in a vice to lightly compress the hammer head. Remove the allen head bolt located on the end of the head. This bolt holds the striker slid that strikes the staple. Remove the pin that you see that was under the rubber grip. Just tap with a punch and then you should be able to remove it with a small set of pliers. Now slid the enter assembly back just enough so that the jammed striker slid will come in contact with the striker guide face. Turn the hammer over and strike the top of the hammer on a piece of wood. This should free the slide and jammed staple. The staple and slide will come out. Take a file and deburr the slid and add a dab of grease to it. To reassemble, Attach the slide guide first, but leave it loose. The rest is reverse order. Hope this helps.

My PHT150 SharpShooter is jammed and won't spring back. The staple plunger is sticking out and won't retract.

Sometimes a bit of the staple material will be sheared off and jam the hammer in its guide, keeping the tool compressed. On the business end of a PHT150 there is a notch in the hammer housing and a slot on the staple carrier. Most times a standard screwdriver can be used by sticking the tip straight into the slot and using the notch to leverage the the two apart. If not, you can clamp the hammer housing in a vise and, using the screwdriver in the carrier slot, tap away from the hammer housing to release the jamb.

My gun will not shoot staples after loaded I thin there is a part missing

Staple gun are simple device and the 'shooting' mechanism is just a sring loaded bar that hammers the staple out: the problem is usually a jam/stuck staple where the staple in the orifice where the staple comes out. Just use a small screwdriver and /or plier to remove the stuck staple which could be jammed against the hammer bar. You may need to force the hammer bar backwards with the help of your small flat head screwdriver.

Hope it helps!

I have a jammed staple in a bostitch staple gun do I remove it?

Depending on the model that you have, for the manual guns, you can engage the driver 1/2 way and use a precision screwdriver to free the errant staple. However, if it's the electric model, you'll need to unplug the tool, remove the magazine mounting screws, and clear all material from the feed tube, this should also remove the lodged staple as well. If not, rap it against a wooden surface to free it then reassemble. I suggest that you unload your tool between uses to keep the rigidity of the spring up to OEM specifications. A weak spring is usually the cause of these jams.

How to repair jammed arrow electo matic staple gun

You'll have to disassemble it. There is probably a staple lodged in the "hammer" mechanism on the business end of the stapler.

Often, these staple are very difficult to remove -- a very small flat-tip screwdriver and needle-nose pliers usually work best.

After you get all the jammed staples out, lubricate all moving parts with something akin to 3-IN-1 machine oil. This should prevent future jams.
