    Maybe the pickup sensor has vibrated loose. The ones I've seen use a locknut to hold it once the depth is set. You loosen the locknut, then screw in the sensor by hand till it contacts the teeth it is sensing, then unscrew it a fraction of a turn (not sure what yours would be) and then tighten the lock nut to hold that setting. Also, check the wiring at the sensor as this is a more common place to break.
