I have verified that wmi repository is consistent by running winmgmt /verifyrepository.  I have numerous repository.xxx files but the oldest one is from 6-2-2014.  Is it safe to simply delete these repository.xxx files?

No, it is not. At least, not if you use WMI for anything. Those files hold data and definitions used by WMI, so just deleting them will probably cause problems. https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/rslaten/2013/05/30/troubleshooting-wmi-repository-bloat/ should give you some assistance in resolving the issue safely, though.
