K, this could be a couple problems. How far down did you take it to clean? Are you comfortable with removing the combustion chamber/housing from unit. There are 4 screws in the top cover and 2 down where the work contact is. Remove them leaving just the fan assembly and handle housing. Next locate the roller arm next to the fan assembly, put a fresh battery in tool and push the arm (KEEPING HANDS AWAY FROM FAN) the fan should come on, if not you probably have an electronic assembly that is bad, if it does come on it should stop in a few seconds. Next depress the trigger and again the fan should come on. Now to diagnose the firing unit. Depress the lever on the roller arm and hold in while pulling trigger, you should see a spark and also hear it where the plug is. If not then you either have a spark unit that is bad or a wiring problem. At this point I would take in for repair. The spark unit is around 90-100 dollars When you put back together did you also replace the orings or clean the ring grooves? Let me know if you have any questions

SOURCE: NAILER WONT FIRE NAILS
DO NOT USE WD40 . Is The Nailer fireing? If Not check the micro switch by the fan . Make sure it is pushing on the switch.. Otherwise bend it a little

There is a little plastic piece inside above the trigger...usually this breaks. It touches a microswitch when the cylinder is closed all the way, allowing the nail to fire.

Any time these guns become intermittent or stop firing but the fan still runs, the first the to check is the expiration date on the gas cartridges. The do expire and this will make the gun work inconsistently or not at all.
