Repairability Engineer at iFixit

Block Image

Hey! I’m Carsten Frauenheim, and I started at iFixit in 2020 as a Tech Writer, then on to a Senior Tech Writer, and now a Repairability Engineer! Modern personal technology is constantly changing—and I’m so stoked to be on the forefront of its investigation! I write helpful repair guides and contribute to iFixit’s online ecosystem, making the tech world a better place one word/picture/sarcastic comment at a time.

More recently, I’ve been working with companies to assess their devices and products in terms of repairability, problem-solving every step of the way!

Education & Experience

I graduated in 2019 from the best school in the entire world Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. During my stint there I gained an incredibly satisfyingly deep understanding of the way the world works, and how to explain it to others with thorough documentation and simplicity. I enjoyed this aspect (enter tech writing) and now I get to do it all day long! Near the end, I helped design and build the world’s fasted solar-powered train! I currently hold my EIT certification.

I’ve always loved fixing my own gadgets and the casual deep-dive into problem-solving rabbit holes, so I’m truly excited to have an outlet.

More About Me

When I’m not working (checking Craig’s How To Unclog A Toilet guide for spelling mistakes), I love to do a lot of things!

These are, but are not limited to: exploring the beautiful central coast, petting my cat, taking photos, playing board games, playing poker, drinking wine, camping, looking at cars I can’t afford on Craigslist, watching Vince Gilligan’s TV shows, building way too many computers, and traveling the world with my wife!

Favorite Fixes

I loved writing the Xbox Series X repair guides, the guide on how to fix bent CPU pins, and contributing to the curation of the largest medical repair database in the entire world. Bam!

Techy things I enjoy:

  • AirDrop
  • Manual transmissions
  • Quite literally anything that’s not FaceID
  • iPhone minis
  • RC cars
  • My MazdaSpeed3
