Kok is right. It's likely a high voltage issue. The "click" is the contactor engaging so we know the transformer is good. Check fuses/breakers and then any breakers that supply power to any fuses.

I wouldn't. Neither is cheap. If you are talking about a top-off I'd use the 22. Mixing would risk an evacuation and starting over which would be really costly.
