I think a lot of it is realising how things are assembled, the use of the correct materials etc. When you examine a failed item it usually because it has had some unexpected stress, so the replacement needs to be stronger or the stress removed. If you can think in that way you are halfway there to becoming a repairer, which is a lot of the DIY that I get asked to do for the kids.
