I hope you have the instructions or downloaded them.
These transmitters usually only transmit once per minute or so. If it has a LED on it this will flash too.
They usually have a reset button on the back (maybe under the battery cover) which you can press to see if it is physically working but as mentioned you would need a spectrum analyser or similar to test it properly.

procedure, the receiver unit just flashes the "connecting" icon and does not

There are no lights, indicators on the transmitter, so my first guess would
be the transmitter is not working.  Is there a way I can detect if the
transmitter is transmitting?

Any other ideas about how to debug it?

I'll call the distributor on Monday and see if I can get a new/spare
