Paslodes can be very tempramental, i would check the date on the gas first if its in date then warm it to room temp and try that, it may also need a service, they do respond well to one so if you have the service kit with it its worth doing it yourself, its not hard and will take 20 mins
Whats involved with servicing a paslode? Some oil on the impact mechanism?
I've got an IM 350/90CT.
I've wondered this too as both mine are out of action at the moment, but I don't know for sure if it isn't the gas which is well out of date.

Last time i did mine i believe the instructions said use the spray cleaner (carb cleaner i guess) around the fan housing, the rubber seal around the piston, clean out the combustion chamber etc etc, then re grease the O ring, if you buy the kit the instruction will tell you what and how, they appear quite a complicated machine but actually very simple and stripping is easy, mine have always responded well to a service
