Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

That is a common problem after cleaning the unit, you got some of the electronics wet and it will continue to click like that until it dries out. Keep it unplugged for 12 to 24 hours and let it dry out and it will be fine. If not let me know, thanks.
