Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? 1. Break the More Views Video Station 2. Select "Repair" 3. Watch sim repair without fixing for hours on end
What happens when the bug occurs? Sim will continue to repair the More Views Video Station until you cancel the action. The item is never fixed. The action status bar is not active.
What do you expect to see? The sim repairs the item after a short period of time. The action status circle continues to fill until the repair is complete.

Please describe the patch or change you made. The patch of 11/25/19.

My sim was level seven handiness when she started repairing the station. She is now at level 10 handiness. I chose to replace the station, as it was apparent she was never going to finish the repair.

Hi there;

 

Was the object upgraded at any time with the Unbreakable upgrade for it? There's a known issue with Unbreakable objects breaking, resulting in an impossible repair job.

 

If you go into build mode while it's broken, then move it; it should fix itself. It's a temporary workaround if that's the case.

@tszrivanI had this same issue but it disappeared after the last update. Certainly easier on the wallet.

 

About 50% of the items on the lot are "unbreakable". Can't remember any of them failing.

@Staceejb Merged this with the thread on unbreakable objects being unrepairable.

 

@tszrivan Cause it's a bug. I'm merging this with existing thread on the issue.

Ann of my no breakable toilets are breaking all of the time since the update? Does anyone have a solution?

just replace them and they are replaced with all the upgrades still intact...haven't tested this in a while...but this is how I used to deal with the issue.

Speaking of Unbreakable, we fixed an issue with Hot Tubs and Stereos where unbreakable upgrades would not work if these objects were in use when upgrading them.
○ Obviously there was an issue with the hot tub… water is the weakness.

Holiday Gnomes will no longer break Unbreakable objects when having a negative relationship with them.
○ We don’t know what was done to make them angry, but even as magical as they are, they should not be breaking the Unbreakable.

Fixed in Patch 1.59.73

Fixing a few offenders is not the same as "fixed"

Vacuums were not fixed.

Neon signs were not fixed.

That's just the things I can instantly name.

@HiSaZuL I know this thread was for multiple things and also had several issues by the means how it broke (rain, gnomes, just by the heck of it)

I would suggest to make new threads for Vacuums and Neon signs (one for each).
