I know you need the mechanic to fix the generator In the cave. Do you have a bunch of keys or just one? You need to put the key in the clamp. And then you need to find the broken key to put next to it to make a new key to take the hand cuffs off the mechanic, so he can fix the generator.

Same here.. I have made the key, and the mechanic sets waiting for me to unlock his shackles. Doesn't look like I am going to be able to do that until the poor man freezes to death, or we get another update! LOL.

I have backed out, and come back in, and will now delete and reinstall the game to see if that helps.

Hi there, it seems that there is a bug with the mechanic in the game. Is anyone from Big fish support can help?

I had to uninstall and reinstall the game 4 times for it to allow me to get past this point. There is an update to help. Just keep at it. You will have to most likely switch profiles and start over, I did.

What worked for me was to zoom in on the mechanic and then give him the key.

I too am having problems with the mechanic. The key just won't work.
Any solutions? I just bought the game yesterday Feb 22 so I guess there is not a fix yet?? This is frustrating. Any help would be appreciated

I too have done the key and it will not let me unlock the mechanic. Seen a walk through on utube video and I just cannot do as it says and give him the key.
What to do nexr?

Good news I have managed to crack the problem with the key. Unfortunately it means starting the game again, but its appears to be the only way around the problem. You need to go to the profile section at the start of the game and put in a different profile name. I did and I have been able to free the mechanic. Good luck!

It has been over two weeks since I complained of not being able to unlock the chains on the mechanic with no response - please refund my money to my account and notify me of such, thank you

START A NEW GAME - CHANGE PROFILE, when you reach the area where the mehanic is go to the long tub on the left side of this scene, move items in tub retrieve token, go back to cave, place token on elevator door, play puzzle, when door opens take the weight, keys and coins, go back to mechanic area, place weight with other weights by the door complete puzzle,, go back inside check cabinet on left, go outside place keys in vice, go inside building behind mechanic, place triangular key on generator, retrieve token - go inside building behind mechanic, place token in cabinet on left, complete puzzle, take the BROKEN KEY go outside, place BROKE key in vice, beside regular key, use the RASP (in inventory) to make new key, give key to mechanic and he is free at last

So, I created the new profile, got to the place where I made the key and attempted to unlock the shackles and...... it not only didn't unlock them, it disappeared from my inventory! This is crazy. Much as I hate to do it, guess I'm going to have to uninstall it and try again. Bother.

I have the same issue. Not sure at this point if I want to start the game over though.

I have the same problem as everyone else except in my case, I clicked the key on the mechanic, it took the key but the man is still chained. So the solution is to start entirely over again. Not a happy camper here.
