Product: The Sims 4
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? 188.8.131.520
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.

The Juice Fizzer (juiceFizzer_EP09GEN_set1) will do what it's expected to do, fizz your juice and not get stuck on the fizzing part of the function.
Fixed in Patch 1.102.190/1.82
Please create a new thread if you're still experiencing this issue,
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
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.
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.
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.
