Depth Finder Problems

My depth finder (horizon) was working fine, up until yesterday. The reading does not stop climbing. In other words:

At my slip it is 21'' deep. I turn on the depth finder, and it goes slowly past 21'' and continues to climb. It sooner or later goes back to 0'' and starts climbing again.

I''m hoping that the transducer just has growth on the bottom and is causing it to have a difficult time getting a reading.

Does anyone have ANY idea why it could be doing this?

Thanks for your help,

Best guess would be growth on the transducer.
Also, have you traced the wiring and checked for any corrosion or loose connections??
