Can I fix my battery-powered blender?

I own this
Coleman battery powered blender. It's only been used about 5 times since I bought it (it sat in a cupboard for three months unused) and has been fully charged for 24 hours.
When I go to turn it on, it doesn't turn on. It makes a fast-paced "click-click-click" sound, which I assumed was an issue with the motor that turns the crank. I opened the blender up and was surprised to find the noise was actually coming from the circuit board that contains the on/off switch.
is a picture of the circuit board. The bottom right-hand black box is the relay. This
(.wav) is the sound it's making. I am a technically-savvy guy who's not afraid to DIY; what might be causing the trouble and how I can fix it?
