Fix-It Clinics

Get help with your broken stuff and learn valuable repair skills at free Fix-It Clinics.

Fix-It Clinics offer free, guided assistance from volunteers with repair skills to disassemble, troubleshoot, and (hopefully) fix small household appliances, clothing, electronics, mobile devices and more. Fix-It Clinics teach valuable troubleshooting and basic repair skills, build community connections and reduce the number of repairable items that are thrown in the trash.

What you need

You will need a laptop, tablet or phone, and Internet connection that allows for video conferencing. It's helpful to have a second person in your household helping you aim the camera and help with disassembly and repairs.

Some common tools you may need include:

  • Phillips and standard screwdrivers
  • Needle nose and regular pliers
  • Flashlight
  • Soldering iron and solder
  • Basic voltmeter and wires to measure AC and DC voltage and resistance (if your item is electrical and not working)
