@canelacaliente Tested this in my game and added gremlins to the lot so to make sure stuff breaks.

First night, everything breaks. Called the repair man. She showed up and fixed everything but the talking toilet which shouldn't be broken in the first place (different bug).

Does it matter what objects they were in your case ? Unbreakables or anything ?

@crinrict It seems if the talking toilet is on the lot and that is broken the repairman won't fix anything else on the lot.  He will just leave.  Once I replaced the talking toilet, he was able to come back and do the repairs on the other broken objects.  Maybe you can merge with the thread on the talking toilet.  This seems to be related to that bug.

@canelacaliente She fixed anything else for me. The trouble is more that the toilet for me was unbreakable and while before they would just forever repair it (like the Sims do), repairman now seems to ignore it (which is a plus)

Not sure which thread on talking toilet you're referring to

@crinrict The repairman doesn't repair anything else on the lot if the talking toilet is broken.  I just have other items on the lot that are regular.  No objects on the lot are upgraded to unbreakable.  As soon as a replace the toilet, the repairman can do repairs.

 

I thought there was another thread on the talking toilet.  I can't find it now.

@canelacaliente All I can say is that it did for me. Which talking one of the talking toilets are you using ?

@crinrict I am referring to the Potty Mouth 2.0.  That one is not listed as unbreakable in my game.  The lot my Sims are living in is the 122 Hakim House apartment.

@canelacaliente Are you clicking on the broken item to call repairman or the phone menu ?

@crinrict I tried both and I received the same result.  I would get the message letting me know there was nothing to repair on the lot if the talking toilet was broken.  If I replaced the talking toliet with another, the repairman was able to repair other items on the lot.

@canelacaliente Really weird. I tried several times now, in the apartment you said and otherwise and the repairman always fixed everything but the eletroncial part of the talking toilet (which I have no manual option to fix so I'm guessing it shouldn't break in the first place).

Waiting for other reports on this.
