Problems with ND1 Nova Delay

New

Last Christmas, I bought my son a used ND1 Nova Delay. It sounds great and worked fine until last week, when it started making popping sounds when used for a prolonged time. And doesn't matter if ir is engaged or not. My San has to unplug the pedal, wait a minute and re plug it, for the oedam to start working again. Can this be fixed?
