Make sure the stopper in the paper tray is snug against the paper. sounds like the paper is not properly in place and the tires are making the noise.
Could be it's trying to lift the tray and it can't, determine why; something stuck, out of place,

SOURCE: brother hl 4040cn will not load paper from tray

Remove main tray. Check adjustable paper back stop. If the backstop is set so that the paper sit too tightly in the tray....it will prevent the spring loaded front portion of the tray to lift up allow paper to contact the pickup roller. The clicking sound you hear is the paper lift mechanism trying to push up the paper. Arrange both backstop and sidestops to allow some movement of paper in tray.

SOURCE: Brother HL-5250dnt - Clicking Noise and not picking up paper

You may have to use a true Brother toner cartridge as I have the same problem with me MFC 8500. If I use a compatible cartridge it clicks and if I use a geniune Brothr cartridge it does. Brother direct brought this to my attention.

SOURCE: My MFC8460N Brother won't print. It makes this

Gears on the tray is broken, or the gears that lift the tray. (thus the clicking noise). And the no paper is due to the actuators underneath not being activated because of the non lift.

Whats the problem? Lots of printer trays are like that. The printer, when powered on, will lift that. Look on the side of the tray there is a mechanism that makes contact with a gear inside the printer.

When I go to print or copy the machine makes a loud clicking noise and then says paper jam. Brother MFC - 8460 N


Hello,
The loud clicking noise is either the toner cartridge or the paper feed. If the jam occurs in the drum and toner cartridge then I recommend changing the toner.
If the paper is not being fed at all then you need to have the paper feed kit replaced.
Thanks,
Pat

Clicking noise with MFC-8640D another case


Usually it's because the paper is too tight in the feed tray. The paper length tab on the end away from the feed roller is too tight. If you cant rotate the gear on the paper tray and lift the paper, it's too tight for the machine to lift.

Paper curls on 8460 Brother


The following is Brother's take on your problem. All of their solutions have some merit but the one I'm leaning toward is overstuffing of the paper tray. It's common in most offices (and homes for that matter) to have a tendency to stuff the paper tray when it runs out.
