The clicking noise is the sound of the high ionizing voltage 'shorting' due to dirt or humidity or both which provides the pathway for discharge. Cleaning and completely drying the filter(s) does not always help, in this case switching the unit to a lower operational speed can mitigate this problem. New filter(s) may be needed to resolve the clicking.
It could be - if you turn off the lights, can you see any arcing (mini-lightning) inside the unit? If you see sparking, you probably have accumulated dust/dirt inside that will need to be cleaned out. You may also have a crack or hole in the discharge plate(s), in which case you need to replace them.
take out the insert and clean it real good ... there is a leaver on back of the machine move it up and down about 10 times to clean the strands ...... make sure you clean the 3 steel thin metal strips good let it dry before you put it back in to the machine ..... + i have that same machine - i have 2 cats - it gets dirty quick
pss the poping sound is the machine is telling you it is dirty ... static electric charge
Warranty on these units expired on the 30th of May, 2008 when the company's assets were acquired and liquidated by Hilco Consumer Capital, Gordan Brothers, and Bluestar Alliance. All warranties became void with the bankrupt status.
With regard to the unit that you cleaned, I am assuming that you cleaned it the usual way you always have and it is now making a statical noise or a vibrating kind of noise, correct?
While the unit is off, take out the insert, pick up the unit and turn it upside down. You will hear some beads moving from the elevated end moving towards the bottom. Turn it upside down again and let the beads move to the bottom again. After doing this a few more times turn it upright and put the insert back in. You just cleaned the static lines. Turn the unit back on and see if the noise is still present. If so, try cleaning the insert again and after drying, see if the noise is still present. It is usually some dirt present somewhere that causes the noise to persist. If you have completed everything and the noise still persists you need a new insert which you can get on ebay.
There being two strips of orangey tape at the bottom of the rods wipe clean the two thin wires stretching the length of the ionic breeze each time you remove the filter elements to clean the filter. Seems like these wires may be emitting the audible high pitched noise if dirty.
My air purifier was doing the same thing. The ticking noise you are hearing is caused by dust build up on the ionizer pins. When the ionizer pins collect too much dust, they tend to start making the clicking/ticking sound caused by static electricity. The solution is simple. Take the filter out and clean it real good (follow directions on filter on how to clean). Now, with the filter out, if you look down inside the vent where the filter was, you'll see a white piece of plastic with nine holes in it that are about the size of a silver dollar. Directly in the center of each hole there will be something that looks like a needle, those are the ionizer pins and they will probably have dust built up on them. Next, with the filter out, blow out the air purifier with compressed air to clean all the dust off the ionizer pins. This should take care of the problem, it worked on mine.
