Most Common Strapping Tool Problems

Below are the four most common problems, as outlined by Fromm, a leading industry manufacturer we work with. Try out our DIY tips. If after the tips have been applied and the tool is still not functioning properly, it is time to contact our team of experts. We do not recommend opening up or tinkering with strapping tools without repair experience. Other than basic cleaning, more complicated tasks should be left to tool repair experts to avoid harming yourself or damaging products.

Not Working in Any Way

This could indicate a dead or defective battery or the battery is not sitting correctly in the tool.

  • Make sure the battery charges properly in the charger.
  • Check that the battery fits properly in its compartment.
  • Remove the battery and put it back in the case.
  • Try a spare battery if available. (Sometimes batteries are duds.)
  • If your tool still doesn’t work, it could be a defective motor or circuit board.

Weak Tensioning Strength

This could signal that the tensioning wheel is dirty or old, or that the microswitch or a circuit board is faulty.

  • Adjusting the settings.
  • Make sure the strapping did not slip off.
  • Blow air into the tensioning wheel to remove debris.

*Do not use any hard objects when trying this.

Does Not Cut

The cutter or pressure spring may need to be replaced.

  • Check and adjust the cutter.
  • Clean the tool.

Does Not Weld

This may be due to different broken or old components such as grippers, springs, or motors.

  • Blow into the tool to remove any dust or debris.
