"Lost a piece of de-icing equipment"

My wife is on US Air flight 3778. It took off from PHL and 27 minutes later landed. She texted me to say that the returned to PHL because they “Lost a piece of de-icing equipment”. I caught a bit of the tower chatter, and the tail number of the plane is 423AW.

Looks like a CRJ-200.

I know nothing of the aircraft other than this tidbit from google…
aerospace-technology.com/projects/crj200/
“The windscreen and cockpit side windows are fitted with electric de-icing systems.”

It may be a simple at that.
