[NEEDS SAVES] [ECO] Fizzing station gets stuck while fizzing

[ Edited ]
★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Deutsch
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.63.134.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play eco lifestyle
What happens when the bug occurs? The juice fizzer gets stuck during the fizzing process. It says "not ready" and has a red light forever. Only when traveling and coming back to the lot does the fizzing eventually resume
What do you expect to see? I expect my juice to be fizzed in a timely manner
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. Since Patch and Eco Lifestyle

As I said above, the juice fizzer often gets stuck while fizzing. Leaving the lot will make it work again, but it is very inconvenient and should not be happening. Without travel the fizzing is stuck indefinetly.

I am also having this problem, but travelling off the lot doesn't fix it.

I have to replace the machine entirely. I have fully upgraded the machine, but I don't know if this plays any part.

@Esmeria I was able to "unstick" mine by having a different household member use it. But it's kindof a problem when there's only one household member.

Happening for me as well. Makes using the fizzing station super inconvenient.

I also have this issue. However, leaving the lot and coming back doesn't fix the issue. I have to sell the fizzer and buy a new one. Which isn't good considering it happens to the new one after about 5-8 batches. This means upgrading would be a bad idea as it'd just be a waste of upgrade parts.

Maybe you are not patient enough. When I return to my lot the juice fizzer still shows the red light and black screen, but after letting a few ingame hours pass (depending on how long was left before it got stuck, i expect), it is ready. This has worked for me so far everytime I tried it.

@Psychotps That did not help for me, debugging it doesn't either. Only solution I found was leaving the lot or getting a new machine.

@Esmeria It worked for me once. The next time it broke, it didn't. I let it sit broken overnight and by the next morning it was working again. I think the break eventually times out and ends up working after a long while.

I'm having this issue as well; leaving the lot does seem to fix it for me.  Thanks for that time.  Annoying, but at least it's a work around till they can update.
