I posted a few weeks back about the (in)audible low bobbin alarm on my new machine. It seems some other folks were having the same problem. I thought you might like an update. After e-mailing with a Pfaff representative and talking with my local dealer, the decision was that the volume control needs replacing which in turn requires replacing the entire board since it is hardwired in. They are in the process of getting the board now. I am disappointed to say the least that this happened; I had great confidence in Pfaff based on previous machines but now perhaps now so much, especially since other machines are having the same problem - not just bad luck with mine! Anyway, if your audible alarm is not so audible, I would push the dealer to fix it.
