Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others
Not sure what make your sounder is but I suppose it really does not matter at this point.
If indeed it was working and not hit on anything to knock it out of place there isn't much else it could be.
You are getting a temperature signal so that indicates that the connector is still plugged in OK.
Not an uncommon issue to have the transducer go bad. I have had to replace a few over the years.
Have you a fishing buddy with the same make you could hook up to and try it?
Can you contact the manufacturer to see about warranty?
I use Lowrance and they have a tech line to call if you need assistance. Perhaps you could look up your manufacturer and see if they also have one.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Manual gives instructions for a different timer dial than timer than shows on unit, so they must come with different dials.
Instructions say pegs pulled out = timer on
Conversely, pegs pushed in = timer off
You might be able to hear the pump operating to see if these instructions are correct for your recirculation timer. The kids would love a listening assignment under the sink.
To see images showing how recirculation system operates:
Try 1/2 hour ON in morning and 1/2 hour ON in evening. Warm water will stay in pipe for a while.
Recirculation system with timer costs $10-17 per year to operate, assuming timer runs 1 hour per day with electric prices at 10 cents per kilowatt hour. Operation cost is straight line ... so if timer runs 2 hours per day, cost is $20-34 per year at 10 cents per Kwh.
Water saved might equal 5 gallons per day, or 1825 gallons per year depending on usage. Average water wasted waiting for hot water is 1/2- 2/3 gallon depending on length of pipe. Set a bucket under spigot to test your home when circulation system is not ON.
Cost of water depends on local billing rate. The municipality saves purifying water, pumping water to your home, and finally pumping and processing sewage drainwater.
If you are on a water well, the pump electricity from saving 2000 gallons a year is a dollar or two per year since water well generally consumes less than 1Kwh per day for ordinary house.
