Not something you can really diagnose online, have you taken it apart to see if the board looks fried?

Probably the transistor. 'Dry firing' a gap that wide tends to burn them up.

Or, another likely problem is that the internal gap is cooked. Hook a piece of wire to one of the electrodes and bring it near the other and try to fire it. If a spark jumps the smaller gap then the problem is probably the internal gap.

Most stun guns really are not designed to ever actually be fired.
