How to take a paslode nail gun apart
PasLode cordless nailers are a rugged tool that requires little in the way of maintenance. Regular cleaning requires the disassembly of the combustion chamber on the back of the gun.
Any other disassembly by other than registered service technicians can void the warranty of your gun and is not recommended due to the sensitive adjustments of the internal combustion chamber and nailing mechanism. While models may vary slightly, the general procedure is the same.
Remove the battery from the bottom of the gun by pressing the release button located at the base of the handle. Pull the nail feed shoe down and empty the nail clip. Release the flip catch on the gas canister restraint on the rear of the gun, just below the compression vent and remove the gas canister. The gun is now disarmed and cannot fire unintentionally.
Press up firmly with your thumb against the filter guard release located just above the gas canister chamber. Swing the guard up to ward the top of the gun and remove the filter.
Remove the four Allen key bolts in the corners of the filter grill enclosure using the Allen key that came with your gun. Turn them counterclockwise to loosen and remove. Lift the grill from the back of the gun. Locate the thick red wire, at the top centre of the rear of the gun. Unplug it by pulling up and away fro the rear of the gun. Unplug the thick black wire as well, by pulling the white connection block loose, pulling to the right side of the gun.
Twist the silver metal square of the vent fan assembly counterclockwise 15 degrees and lift up to remove the cover and vent fan. The gun is now fully disassembled for cleaning. Remove the seven Phillips-head screws on the left side of the gun to access the interior for part replacement or repairs.
