Why Is the Red Light Blinking on My Arrow Electric Staple Gun?

The blinking red light on the Arrow Electric Staple Gun can be an indication of a low battery. This particular model, the T50DCD, is equipped with a battery indicator light that offers useful information. When the light is solid green, it means that the tool is fully charged and ready to use. However, if you notice a flashing red light, it signifies that the battery is running low and needs to be recharged. On the other hand, if the light is flashing green, it indicates that the tool is operating in battery saving mode. Understanding these different light signals can help you ensure that your Arrow Electric Staple Gun is always powered appropriately for your projects.

Why Won T Staples Come Out of Staple Gun?

One possible reason why staples won’t come out of a staple gun is due to a clogged or misfiring hammer. If the gun is unable to fully penetrate materials, it may be a sign that the hammer isn’t functioning properly.

Another indication of a potential problem is if the staple gun is releasing bent staples. This could be caused by a bent or damaged hammer that isn’t aligning properly with the staples. The force of the hammer should be evenly distributed to ensure that the staple is inserted correctly, but if the hammer is misaligned or damaged, it may cause the staples to bend or become crooked.

It’s crucial to ensure that the staples being used match the specifications and requirements of the staple gun.

Failure to regularly clean and lubricate the tool can result in the accumulation of dirt and debris, causing jamming or misfiring. Additionally, incorrect handling or excessive force could damage the internal mechanisms of the staple gun and affect it’s performance.

Identifying the specific issue, such as a clogged or misfiring hammer, bent staple release, or other problems mentioned, is crucial in addressing the problem and ensuring proper functionality of the tool.

How to Properly Clean and Lubricate a Staple Gun

Cleaning and lubricating a staple gun is an important maintenance task for ensuring optimal performance and extending it’s lifespan. To start, make sure the staple gun is unplugged or doesn’t contain any loaded staples. Use a soft cloth or brush to remove any dirt, debris, or excess oil from the exterior and the working parts of the staple gun. Pay close attention to the feeding mechanism, trigger, and staples’ path. Next, apply a small amount of non-greasy lubricant or machine oil to the moving parts, including the trigger and the track where the staples slide. Be careful not to over-lubricate. Finally, wipe away any excess oil, reassemble the staple gun, and test it to ensure smooth operation. Regularly cleaning and lubricating your staple gun will help maintain it’s efficiency and prevent jamming or misfires during use.

Additionally, check if there are any obstructions or jams in your stapler that may be preventing it from functioning properly.

Why Won’t My Stapler Shoot Staples?

Additionally, the stapler may be jammed. To fix this, you can try opening the stapler and removing any visible staples or debris. Using a small tool, such as tweezers or a paperclip, can help in dislodging any stuck staples. However, be careful when doing this to avoid any injuries.

Over time, the spring mechanism in the stapler can weaken, causing it to lose the necessary force to shoot staples effectively.

For example, if youre not pressing down firmly enough on the stapler, it may not be engaging the staple-shooting mechanism properly.

Different staplers require different types and sizes of staples.


This handy feature provided by the T50DCD model allows you to conveniently monitor the status of your tool's battery. By keeping an eye on the indicator light, you can ensure that your staple gun is always powered up and ready to tackle your projects with ease.
