[NEEDS SAVES] [ECO] Classic Wind Turbine break too often

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
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?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play the game
What happens when the bug occurs? the Classic Wind Turbine - Ground breaks, sparks and no longer works ... they break maybe once or twice a week - I have a dozen on my lot and repairing/replacing is becoming a full time task ...
What do you expect to see? Maybe have them NOT break as often? Maybe have it where when you upgrade it to 'Self Lubricating Gearbox' (the 'never breaks' upgrade) it stops breaking?
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Installed Eco Living

All 12+ of my Wind Turbines are upgraded with the 'Self-Lubricating Gearbox' upgrade which reads "Adds a self-lubricating Gearbox to the Wind Turbine that ensures it never breaks".

Unfortunately that Upgrade appears to be Broken as my wind turbins keep breaking!  In the short time I have played since Eco Living became live (approx 36 hours ago) I have had to repair/replace each of them at least twice.

Also wondering if wind turbines are supposed to break every time it rains? They're not electronics, and they're meant to be outside.
