Removing spark plug on Paslode Angled nailer


My Paslode gun is not firing, when I pull the trigger the fan spins, I smell gas and hear a psssst sound, but no ignition.

I cleaned the gun as per maintenance instructions, and I can see the round piece on the back that houses the spark plug, but I cannot access the plug, I do not want to use force.
Can anyone give me detailed instructions on how to remove the spark plug so I can either clean it or replace it.

Its behind the air filter. Take the air filter cover off with an allen wrench. Pull the spark plug wire off the spark plug. It's a thick red wire with a rubber boot(on mine it was). A half turn loosens the plug. Replace it with a new one. Your good to go. I got a tune up kit that came with a spark plug at a local tool supply for about $20. I would recommend the kit. It came with a couple other things too, oh, and instructions.

Make sure the gas is fresh, it has a shelf life. I had a similar problem, would not fire consistently. Same problem after cleaning and tune up. Installed new gas cartridge, works fine.

The round cover for the spark plug just turns and when I tug on it there is no give, as I said I do not want to force it, I think there might be a retaining clip holding it, but from what I can see there is no way to get this clip off.

Huh, my gun is the IMCT and thats how I did it. You can always email paslode (tech@paslode.com), or call em (800-222-6990). Maybe your gun is designed a little different, I dont blame you for not wanting to force it.
