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.
No, you just need to replace the wire with a like type (usually tungsten over steel) and apologise to the power supply as necessary (replace suspicious-looking VOMs, caps, etc.) Bent plates are the filter-killers.
I have a .pdf of the manual I can send you. I just run mine throught the dishwasher by themselves. The manual says to do that or hand wash them in the sink. Just make sure they are thoroughly dry before putting them back in.
Didja wash the plates? It takes a little maintenance, and there are a lot of things that could make it stop working (Magnum, anti-aircraft fire, someone tripped over the cord, power quality in Karachi is lousy, there's pudding in the works...) but washing the plates with dishsoap and water, (then drying them before trying to start again) ought to fix most things that could be wrong.
Sometimes a fiber (a gift from a guest, maybe) is protruding into the works that needs to be removed, but those are the main reasons.
