My Swingline Stapler Model 51110 electric stapler no longer staples. The staples will not move forward and it just does "blank" stapling. Also, it goes off on it's own all the time running stapples through with nothing near.

Swingline 51110 electric stapler end-of-life: yellow, sticky, rubbery chunks fall out of stapler when shaken vigorously, and stapler fails to drive staples when cycled, or repeatedly cycles until thermal protector engages. The stapler is otherwise clean and free of loose staples. On my unit, the problem was caused by two large, half inch bushings decomposing with age, on which the "hammer" pivots. This in turn caused the aforementioned to become loose and misaligned. Visualize a 1/8 inch pin wandering around in a half inch opening on each side of the steel frame causing some wobble... Cycling resulted from the misalignment Interfering with one of the three microswitches inside. The case has plastic clips around the top and sides, but the bottom part is sealed above the storage drawer by adhesive, and there is a molded plastic pin midsection which glues the two halves together. The unit offers an interesting take-apart project and autopsy, especially for a three year old with an electric screwdriver. The circuit board was dated 1998. K9YMT

I have the same issue; however, there is some resinous material that came out of it as a result of my trying to figure out why it wasn't stapling anymore. Anyone know where I can take it for repair?

SOURCE: 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

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 :)

Swingline optima 40 how do you open and close the stapler?

Swingline heavy duty staplers provide the power to staple up to 120 pages of 20-lb. paper easily and consistently. The all-metal construction of these staplers makes them an indispensible office tool. However, the way to load staples into a Swingline heavy duty stapler differs from the method for loading most other manual staplers and can cause a little confusion.
Difficulty:Easy Instructions

    • 1 Remove the follow block at the back of the stapler by pushing the mechanism in, lifting the block up over the holding hooks and sliding it out from the stapler. The follow block is the spring-loaded mechanism that holds the staples in place within the stapler.
    • 2 Load the heavy-duty staples into the staple tray.
    • 3 Replace the follow block by inserting it back into the stapler and locking it into place over the holding hooks.

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.

Instructions on unjamming swingline electric stapler model 270; jam is at the front of the stapler; staplers come out either broken, flaten or crooked and does not secure document.

First, are you using the recommended staples for this stapler? Many heavy duty electric staplers don't use "standard" desk staples. Second, try unplugging the stapler, unloading the staples, and if possible, reach a couple of fingers into the stapler and try manually pushing up on the staple head to see if you can get the driver blade to come down. Does it come down smoothly, or does it seem like there is something stuck in there? If you aren't sure about disassembling the unit (my usual method-but I'd recommend having the parts diagram handy), try using a flashlight to look at the underside of the staple head, where the staples come out - can you see anything stuck in there? If so, you might be able to use a small knife blade or small dental pick to get jammed staple pieces out.
