[NEEDS INPUT] Unbreakable toilet broken by pranking and cannot be repaired

[ 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 is your current game version number? 1.59.73.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All expansions, all game packs, all stuff packs, all free stuff.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? 1) Ensure you have the unbreakable Sweet Escapes Country Toilet placed in your house. 2) Break the toilet (despite its unbreakable nature) by pranking it, and then using it (or simply using the debug menu) 3) Once the toilet is broken, try to repair it using either the repair option or the instant repair option if you have that ability. 4) Watch as it fails to repair.
What happens when the bug occurs? There are two parts of the problem - firstly, the toilet is unbreakable, so it shouldn't break when pranked. Perhaps the better option would be to create a mess/puddle but for otherwise unbreakable toilets, don't break them. Secondly, once it IS broken, the repair options don't work - presumably because it's unbreakable and should never get broken to start with.
What do you expect to see? Either the toilet shouldn't break (probably the most likely option) and it should only create a puddle when pranked, or if it IS meant to be broken in this way, despite the unbreakable tag, it should be fixable as any other toilet would be.
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? Neutral/Not Sure 

I assumed that this was a mod based bug but having removed all of my CC, mods, scripts etc from my mod folder, the problem still persists. I have checked the suggested threads (all of which seem to be related to other unbreakable objects or an earlier bug with repeated pranked toilets related to other issues) but this is not related to any mods.

I can repeat it. It breaks when pranked, and trying to repair it leads to the animation repeating until you or the sim gives up to do something else. Hiring repair services has the service person give it a go before giving up and standing around, unwilling to leave because something is broken, unwilling to try again because he knows it's a lost cause. You can use the replace option as normal.

YES! This just happened to me today too, same toilet. Pranking the toilet led to it breaking and being unfixable as described. 

 

I have never used any mods or CC.
