Once started it will continue to start and run all day, but likely need ice again the next day. Someone in Europe repairs them, but quickest fix is a new module or two. My understanding at the time was they don't tend to fail entirely, meaning once they start will continue to run. If you always start on both modules you could have one in this failure mode for years and never know it, as long as one of them is good for the start.
