Wood stove repair can be a tricky business. While some parts and areas are easily replaced, some stuff is better left to the pros. And sometimes, you're better off scrapping things.

If you're looking at an old unit, say older than 1980, its a good bet that it doesn't meet EPA certifications. In addition, newer models are usually much more efficient. You might save enough on fuel over time to make a new style a better investment.

If there is an issue with the firebox, such as a crack, I'd let the pros look at it. Issues like that are very often caused by overfiring, which can seriously damage the interior. There are products available to fix it yourself but you may have structural problems with the metal that go beyond what you see.

That said, if you do have a unit worth fixing, there are many parts that are easy enough to replace. Doors and gaskets are easily updated, for example.

Issues with the chimney, such as blockages, should be handled by the pros, in my opinion. Trying to deal with soot and blockages is a mess and tough to do without the proper tools.

For pellet burners, if the feeder breaks down you'll want to check if its under warranty. Electric parts can be hard to troubleshoot. Trying to DIY may void the warranty.
