I know what causes the main problem with the constant clicking, it has NOTHING TO DO WITH DEBRIS, but a small piece of plastic in the right hand corner of the top drawer. It seems that the company used a really cheap insulator underneath this piece. I do have the fix. If you need the solution then I can be reached at EPT2@SC.RR.COM.

Re: making a constant clicking noise
Clicking usually corresponds to some circuit trying to power up, but being shorted and having to trip. It clicks more than once because it tries to self-reset. Some fiber or mineral contaminant might have messed things up; get it outta there.

www.brookstone.com/webassets/pdf/630285p_manual.pdf BrookstonePure-Ion® Pro. Air .... Use this unit only for its intended use as described in thismanual . 4 . .... Position the unit so the cleaner air flows to your desired location .
These are usually quiet so the clicking might be an problem. It could just be a dirty ion generator. On this unit you can toss those into the dishwasher. If they are dirty enough the click you hear might just be a spark. If it is sensing this it might be why it is shutting down as well.
I've included a link to the manual for the unit so that might help you out in settings and so on.
I would download and read the manual, clean the unit according to the manual and see if that makes it behave. When these work they are incredible at what they take out of the air. We used a commercial version of this unit in a 13000 sqr foot room and even with a few hundred people who smoked (was allowed at the time) the air remained clear. The ion traps were revolting disgusting when they were cleaned once a week so they definitely pull stuff out of the air.
Sparking is what it does; Google the words ionizer purifier sparking and you will be let to explanations on how they use sparking to clean. Honeywell has been using that Technology for decades. Don't worry sparking in the unit is OK
after cleaning is it dry. you might want to take apart and see what is clicking wheel or some thing hard to tell since i can't see it. as far as options . check with the manufacture google it check them out on line hope this helps. Tom
i am a low voltage tech my wife told me that our 506840 air cleaner stopped working so being a tech geek i had to know why it just stopped working.when plugged in i heard a click telling me that the main board was getting power.opened the back end where power cord goes to put my meter and voltage was going to the main power coil. but the main board was oxidized. when my wife was cleaning the filters and might not have had the filters completely dried the water was dripping down to main board.the unit to main power source is not design very well where water from cleaning the filters can drip down to main power board.solution i am working on is trying to get a new board when we bought this it was $499.00
