Hi, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The fact that you hear clicking and the generator seems to kick in leads em to believe that the power circuit to it may have been damaged when it was dropped. It may be that when the generator is actuated, the connections are no longer able to carry the high current draw, causing the clicking you are hearing. Did you inspect all components when you had it apart?

Hi Kelly,I'n not a specialist so I only checked the spade connections and the valve.What is the power circuit? Once I know what it looks like, I can have a look. Once I locate it, what is it I should be looking for to know whether that is the cause of the problem?ThanksDave

Well, you can follow the wires to the generator back to the control and button to inspect for issues like melting or discoloration. Can you post pictures of what you see inside the unit?
