Kobalt Model 103798 Direct Drive all electronic board. When turn on all it does is make quick loud clicking sounds from underneath circuit board. Was told regulator was bad. Replaced with new one, no change. Circuit board seems to be fine, displays an upside down U. Thoughts?

From what I've read about the digital compressor failing issue, your compressor symptoms suggest the logic board has failed. If you can find a replacement, I expect it will be expensive.

In my opinion, you would be far ahead by removing all the digital crap from the compressor, and replacing it with a standard pressure switch and manual regulator.
