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? 1.69.59.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All except Journey to Batuu
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Click on a broken object and select repair.

Sims will start repairing the object, the action timer will go normally and when it finishes and the item should be repaired it just stops at full and your sim continuously repairs the item until you cancel the action. The object never gets repaired.

@rvchelsims Is this for unbreakable objects only (that should be broken in the first place) or all objects ?

 

 

EDIT: So this seems to happen for certain breakable objects as well. Namely the climbing walls and some stereos.

 

If you have this issue for UNBREAKABLE objects, please use this thread: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/OPEN-Unbreakable-Object-breaks-no-repair-Patch-1-59-73-Edition...

It was a speaker and a rock climbing machine that were broken from being outside that I had 2 different sims try to repair and neither could complete the action.

@rvchelsims Not sure if those have unbreakable upgrades. Have you done any upgrades ?

i've had the same issue- the repair goes to full but never completes. think that handiness goes up the entire time? this happens even on objects that have no upgrades (either added through handiness or default to the item). debugging the object doesn't work, only replacing it entirely seems to. i don't use any cc/mods, playing most recent version. i don't get this bug every time i try to repair an object, but i've gotten this bug on and off for a pretty long time (like, 6 months minimum). most recent instance of this, the object (digital keyboard) was broken by being outside in the rain, but in the past i've had 100% indoor objects suffer the same bug

The rock climbing machine was not upgraded at all, not sure about the stereo as it came with the house on the gallery but I’d assume it wasn’t upgraded.

@rvchelsims What stereo did you use ? Can you double-check if it was upgraded ? There is a known bug for this

As for the rock climbing wall, that seems to have a self-fix upgrade but if you never added that, it might have separate issues (although I'm pretty sure mine broke a while ago and I was able to fix it at the time).

@spiralingshape Some objects come unbreakable by default. Do you remember which objects you had it on ?

@crinrict i've had this infinite repair issue w many objects- the keyboard, as i mentioned; washing machines (these have been buggy for me in general); stereos, especially the one that's a career reward

i don't think any of them had built-in Unbreakable (that's mostly high-end kitchen appliances, i think?)

So I tested more, so far ive been able to repair all indoor appliances (sink, toilet, dishwasher, fridge etc) with no problem. Only exception was the robot vacuum which my sim was able to repair to where it worked again but the actual object still had the appearance of it being broken (smoking and beeping). But anything outside that breaks because of weather is where the bug happens for me from what I’ve noticed.

The climbing wall breaks in bad weather. When trying to repair it, my sim will go to fix it, and after my sim is done, it is still broken.

 

I’ve tried to repair it both during bad weather and sunshine.

 

It’s been like this for a few months now, maybe since last summer? I’m not exactly sure.
