Paid Repair Services

Electronic Repairs at Summer Hill

Bring your broken electrical appliances for assessment and we will work with you to troubleshoot how you might fix it. We can’t guarantee that we can repair items brought in, but we can give you an idea of what’s wrong and whether it’s repairable.

You can watch other people’s items get pulled apart and repaired and gain insight into how different items work. Our aim is for you to leave empowered with more skills at home repairs.

BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL – $30 for 30minute session

What is a Repair Cafe?

Repair Cafes originated in Europe, and the Bower was the first organisation to bring this concept to Australia. In the past we have encouraged our patrons to bring broken items into our workshops; after assessing the item our experts would offer advice on the best next steps.
We run occasional Repair Cafes at special events.

****We are looking for skilled repairers. Please email wm@bower.org.au if you are keen to join our team.

We acknowledge the Gadigal people of the Eora nation who are the traditional custodians of this land and pay respect to Elders past, present and future and extend that respect to other Aboriginal people.
