English term or phrase: relays that "chatter" contacts
Without proper current flow, the magnetic field used to spin the pump motor will not be strong enough to make the pump work as designed. The same holds true for relays that "chatter" contacts, or a nonfunctional solenoid. Este es el párrafo donde se encuentra el término chatter que, al parecer, está usado figurativamente. ¿Es posible que el significado aquí sea "hacer rechinar" o "hacer vibrar"?
No tengo mucho conocimiento sobre este tema, así cualquier sugerencia va a ser de mucha utilidad. Gracias!!

Si los contactos del relay vibran y se pegan y despegan rápidamente de forma continua, producen un ruido similar al de castañetear los dientes (*chatter*)
