I have an old Stingray clone that I received a fewyears ago in a pif box that was going around. For a good while it worked phenomenally, but at that, the button sticks and it won't fire at all no matter what I do. Any helpwith this issue is GREATLY appreciated.

Can you show us some pics of the button? Also, have you tried taking it apart and cleaning it?

Best starting point is usually to disassemble the switch, clean the entire assembly really well and then reassemble, if you have some noox put a dab on the threads.
If it’s a magnetic switch be sure to pay attention to the polarity.

What is noox? I've never heard of that before. It is a magnetic switch and thepolarity is right. That was the first thing that I check. I will be cleaning the threads when I get home as well. I'll post my findings after the dry and I can test it out as well.

It’s a lubricant that protects the threads and helps with conductivity
A very small amount goes a long way .. this tube will last years

I finally found the vinegar, took the mod all apart and soaked them. They are currently drying. When they are dry I'm going to test it. If it still isn't working I'll take pics and see if we can come up with something.

Woke up this afternoon and the mod was dry. I put it back together and it is working. I don't know which threads were crunchy, but it works now. Thanks SO much for helping me resurrect this awesome little mod. Now I just need to rebuild my dripper. It was set up for series, so not suitable for a tube mod. I'll be fixing that tonight after work.

Awesomeness! Glad you got it running well again!
Best thing about mechs is that so long as you keep them clean, they are indestructible

Yes, that is so true. I just got home and finished eating. Getting ready to pop a new build in that rda and enjoy the first amazing vape out of this mod in a long while. I can't wait. Thanks allot for everything :)

Got her up and running. Got it setup up with my Wotofo Lush rda. Ss316l 5 wraps on a 3mm id at 1.1Ω.
