I’ve read that the possibility of fixing it is the driving force behind the halakha of not doing those things, as to prevent the temptation to do it at all. But if your chain breaks or a valve flips on your accordion and you just walk it or set it down, is that okay? I’ve read the Conservative teshuva on it and the rationale feels all over the place and the conclusion sounds like “eehhhhhh maybe don’t.” But other perspectives are welcome.
Can you play an instrument or ride a bike on Shabbat if you 100% commit to not fixing it if it breaks?
