Get Repair

Help or Get Help with Repair

PLEASE READ: Fixit Clinic is a peer-to-peer activity staffed by volunteer Fixit Coaches and is not a hands-off free repair service. Fixit Clinic is a troubleshooting and discovery workshop: you are expected to actively participate in the disassembly, troubleshooting, and repair of your item so that you leave fully empowered to share your new-found confidence and insight with your friends, neighbors, and the community at large.
REPAIR is not assured: while we do have an excellent track record any specific item can have issues that make it unrepairable or we can exacerbate the problem during our attempts to repair it.

=================
You can help or get help anywhere in the world through Fixit Clinic's virtual repair initiatives; there are two choices for virtual repair:

1) Get online help with repair through the always-on Global Fixers Server for 24x7 around-the-clock around-the-world synchronous/asynchronous repair (uses Discord.) To have your broken item looked at by the growing network of community repairers from around the world register at http://bit.ly/fixitcheckin; select “Repair via the 𝙂𝙑𝙀𝙗𝙖𝙑 π™π™žπ™­π™šπ™§π™¨ π™Žπ™šπ™§π™«π™šπ™§ using Discord” from the pulldown menu and complete the rest of the form to start the on-boarding process.

2) Scheduled Zoom Fixit Clinics; present your broken item to a global team of expert community repairers and get suggestions for things to try. After all items have been presented, items/participants and repairers move to Zoom breakout rooms to implement the tips and, hopefully, fix the items: Participant registration at http://bit.ly/fixitcheckin

Repairers: Are you an experienced or aspiring repairer? Are you looking to start or promote repair in your community? You and other local repairers anywhere in the world are most welcome to join these global initiatives, even if it's just to observe. You're also most welcome to bring your local "stumpers" to be considered by the assembled Global Fixers. Fixer/Observer sign-in at http://bit.ly/fixitcoachsignup

To participate in a Fixit Clinic:
- Bring the broken item with all parts necessary to recreate the symptoms (carry-in only: no oversize items)
- Bring any parts and tools you already own that might be helpful (e.g. hand tools, sewing notions)
- Come ready to clearly describe what’s wrong and what you’ve tried (Tip: advance web research about your item is especially helpful)
- Come eager to learn and to share your skills and knowledge with others

Thanks, and we're looking forward to seeing your smiling face at Fixit Clinic!
