It’s that time again – the first Saturday of every month we hold a Repair Café in the Lordship Hub Community Centre in Tottenham!
Here’s the latest list of things people have asked for help repairing this Saturday:
1.Pure DAB entertainment centre. Radio works but it stopped playing CDs
2.Roku Soundbridge. burnt out diode
3.Dyson hand held. Not working properly
4.Amcor Dehumidifier DESD8 L- shows humidity reading and blows air but dehumidifier doesn’t kick in.
5.Holey M&S jumper. Holey cashmere jumpers! Looking for help with darning
6.Table lamp – switch and/or bulb holder does not work.
7.Devola dehumidifier. 20L compressor. It stops working after a few minutes and displays the error code C1.
8.Philips Lumie Alarm clock. I dropped it on the floor and now it doesn’t work properly. I have tried changing the light bulb but it still wont light up gradually anymore which is the point of the product.
9.Lampshade broken (soldering job I think) and only working intermittently (loose connection?)
11.Gaggia Classic, model from 2006. I had issues with leaking and I have tried to dismount the boiler to clean it. Due to limescale / leaks, some components are stuck (and a couple of bolts/nuts are stripped); I would really appreciate some help to disassemble it.
12.Some speakers that need repair
13. Breville Lustra 4-slice toaster. The racks in one of the slots have become loose & warped.
If you can mend these or want to learn by ‘shadowing’ a repairer, please book a free ‘volunteer’ or observer’ ticket and come on down
If you have skills you can share, please bring along any tools you wish and help us help others – just book a free ticket. You can swap skills too if you have broken stuff of your own you would like someone else to help you with whilst you help them with something of theirs.
Here’s what we ask local people:
What do you do with a chair when the leg has come loose? A lamp that no longer works? A toaster that doesn’t toast? A holey jumper? Throw it away? No way! We are hosting afternoons of fixing and skill-sharing where people help one another.
Bring something that needs fixing and let’s fix it – we have experienced fixers who can help. Don’t leave it in a cupboard or throw it away – fix it.
Let us know on the order form what time suits you and what you are bringing.
