You can't hurt it any more than it is, so I would try a liquid paint remover/stripper and let the metal parts soak over night. I'd be more careful with the plastic parts. Poke in the holes with a fine wire (paper clip) or pin. About the service manual, use a search engine (Dogpile, google) and search the web.

Goto http://www.wagnerspraytech.com and click on "sprayers" and select your model. If not listed goto "customer service" then "discontinued product manuals".

no fluid gets to nozzle or comes from nozzle.
sounds like your fluid line is pluged or the gun is pluged at or before the tip

In order of ease/cost to fix: First, check your spray tip. Most of them are reversible to help spray out any debris that may be lodged in them. Next, check that all of your filters are clear and let paint flow freely. Depending on your model there are up to three, one filter in the spray gun, usually in the handle, another filter is at the pickup tube and some sprayers also have another filter on the machine where the hose hooks up. Another cause may be because your paint is way too thick or not mixed well. A highly recommended paint additive for airless sprayers is Floetrol, it makes the paint flow extremely well. If none of these fix your problem you may well have a worn packing or diaphragm, again depending on your model, and the machine isn't developing enough pressure to atomize the paint. If you have the means put a pressure guage in line with the hose at the machine and turn it on. You need at least 1200 to 1800 psi for most latex paints, a little higher for enamels and thicker paints.
