We have rebuilt the Store No More Home Fabricator so that it doesn’t break at least once a day. All returns are subject to warranty inspection, no Simoleons were harmed in this endeavor.
Fixed in Patch 1.67.45/ 1.32
If you're still experiencing this issue, please create a new thread.
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
I'd say mine breaks roughly every third interaction, and the constant whining noise from the broken fabricator persists even after it's repaired.
Repairing the game did not help remove the whining noise. The fabricator still breaks every second or third interaction.
Is this on a lot in the heavily polluted area?
I noticed my fabricator breaks or fails almost every time I try to fabricate something that is not requested for a job.
I'm not using the fabricator on a polluted lot, the lot is even green at the moment.
I'm currently playing with the Canal Corner lot with a sims that has the Maker trait
Just to chime in with the same issue (my household is also in a Neutral Port Promise).
I find it a bit odd that they didn't add any Upgrade options to this object like every other interactable appliance in the game. So there's no way you can make it Unbreakable
Thankfully, both of my Sims are spellcasters with Repairio, but I still lose whatever I was working on when it breaks and have to start again.
And as a further note, I have no CC whatsoever in this game at the moment.
