I had this problem, too. Somewhere on the internet I read that microwaves can cause problems with counters, so I removed my microwave, and my problem went away. Good luck!

Sims can't cook/can't use fridge

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? GTW get together cats and dogs city living every game pack besides jungle Adventure backyard stuff bowling night fitness stuff laundry day perfect patio vintage glamour
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have your sim try to cook on an oven. it doesn't matter what oven or where.
What happens when the bug occurs? the sim throws the sign that they cannot walk to that area in the air even if the oven is in the middle of an open room with multiple doors.
What do you expect to see? Sims should be able to cook meals.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. the sims 4 seasons patch in late February

My sims can't cook from the fridge, they can only have snacks and juice. They can cook BBQ and store food in fridge and can eat leftovers, but they can not cook freshly from the fridge. When I try to cook, a food list catalogue pops up but I can't click on anything in the catalogue.

No worries everyone, I just fixed my problem. My sims needed a counter to cook on. I solved my problem.

Could you try a different household to see if it's related to the household or even a fresh save for testing ?

It's probably something blocking in your kitchen then. Are you using the pot rack ? If so, try removing that.

Same issue. All my sims pull the food out of the fridge and start, but then they stop. I try resuming to prepare food but they shake their head in anger with two feet and a red x above. Help.

Going to mark this as fixed for now.

I made a new thread for the pot rack: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-A-Pot-Rack-causes-routing-issues-when-trying-to-us...

 

The counter issue has been fixed.

 

The rest is not a bug.

More info can be found here: https://sims4.crinrict.com/en/2019/01/sims-cant-cook-anymore/

If the solutions don't help, please provide your save games.
