Hello, Belle; first of all, there is a power switch on this appliance, just in case you didn't see it... and another possibility is that the staples have jammed. If that happened, you may have to unplug and see if you can fish them out somehow, so you can start over with new staples. I hope you can get that fixed, I have one, and haven't had that particular problem. I seem to have issues where the wood I'm driving staples into acts as if it's too hard, and they won't go in! Good luck with your Arrow Stapler.
Hello, It really depends on how thick the carpet, carpet backing and carpet padding are. This tool fires staples up to 1/2-inch, so the total thickness of all materials would need to be around 0.25-inch (1/4-inch) in order to get the 3/16-inch to 1/4-inch surface penetration required for a secure hold. We hope that helps, but if you have any other questions about this tool and your project, please don't hesitate to give us a call at 800-776-2228 or to email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're here to help! -Your Arrow Fastener team
No, you'll need longer nails for baseboard.
I wouldn't use this for those types of molding. The 5/8 brad nails would most likely be too short to expose much nail to secure it into a wood back board and if you have to go through wall board and then into a wood stud it would be impossible. You would need brads or finishing nails in the 1.25 - 1.5 inch range.

There isn't a reset button. I have been having similar difficulties -- the stapler stops firing after a few staples, or even after just sitting for a short time while plugged in (even when turned off). Sometimes the green light is off, but usually it is on (solid, not blinking). I think it must be an overheating problem, although the casing never feels more than warm. I can generally resolve the problem by turning off and unplugging the unit for a few minutes. Needless to say, this has been frustrating in the extreme! I hope that someone has the answer!
Yes it is. There is a small motor or maybe an electric solenoid that fires the staples. They get hot under normal use.
No, this is electric no air needed.
