Swingline 520e does not staple

Changed out the cartridge on the Swingline 520e. It was working fine before but now does not staple. The machinery cycles & stamps but no staples. It seems the cartridge is not advancing. I have manually cycled thru the system several times. I have also cleaned the cartridge area of any loose staples. Still nothing. I have TWO of these machines with this same problem.

The trick to clearing this is to rn the stapler WITHOUT the cartridge in. We removed several visible jams, but once we ran it with the cartridge out, a huge piece of staple came out, and then we were able to put the cartridge back in and use it. Woot!

    I have an old quite heavy duty Swingline stapler which is well engineered but would not shoot staples when I got it, despite no obvious blockages. I used some lubricant on the channel the staples fit in, and now it shoots fine. I used graphite powder, but be careful because this could stain things such as fabrics.

I have loaded a new staple cartridge into my Swingline 520e stapler and it isn't releasing any staples when i attempt to staple something.


Not sure but check for staples that are jammed where the new ones go in. i had one single staple which stuck in and would not let the new ones come out.

We have a swingline model #690 - after loading with new staples, it does not staple. It is plugged in and makes a sound like it's stapling but does not release a staple.


1. Make sure you have the correct staples for the machine. The type appears to be:
Swingline 50050 Cartridge Staples, Chisel Point, 1/2"" Crown, 3/16"" Leg, 5000 Per Box High-quality Swingline cartridge

2. Check the cartridge to make sure there are no visible jams.

3. Contact the manufacturer at http://www.acco.com/swingline/, or

We have a Swingline 690 electric stapler in our office. We are unable to get the stapler to work after loading staple cartridge. We followed the directions and made many attempts to load. There does not...


I had the same problem with my 690. This is what worked for me.. I simply pulled out the staples from the cartridge a little further than the suggested tear-off point, and the machine was able to start working. Hope this helps!

My Swingline Optima Power Ease will not staple, nor can I open it to try to find out why. There are staples in there, but it feels like there are no springs


This happened to me as well. I am not sure what causes this but heres what I did to fix it.

Just grab the top part of the stapler ( where it says Swingline) and pull up, like you are trying to seperate the top and bottom. You will hear a click and your stapler should work fine.

Stapler is not dispensing staples after new cartridge is inserted. Can you help?


Remove the staple cartridge, look into the cartrige area, are there any stray staples in this area, if so remove them, cycle the unit a couple of times without the cartrige in place, check the output end, any stray staples here? re assemble making sure you pull the first row ow staples even with the nozzle of the cartrige.

Hope this helps

My Swingline model 520e jams every other time I staple.


There were a few staples left in the cartridge when the stapler stopped working. I went thru all the steps on bottom for stapler after changing the cartridge with two different cartridges. It makes the noise and puts marks in the paper, but no staples come out of it.
