    So I'm wondering how many others have run into this issue...
    My EuroPro machines light went dead. I was able to get in contact with a dealer ( I live really far away from the main stream) and they have the replacement bulb for ...wait for it......$65.00!!!!
    Now I know I live in the boonies and I'm not the most savvy person...but $65.00! WOW

    That really cuts into my fabric budget (the budget is new for this year) and I can't have that.
    So with that being said I asked the BF to check at a radio shack near where he lives....and guess what??

    He showed up with a package of two bulbs for .... a buck 95!
    What is wrong with this picture???
    Just wondering if anyone else has had similar happen to them....

    I'll definitely be keeping this info for when the light bulb goes out in my EuroPro. I only use this as a back-up machine, but it sure is a workhorse.

    I tried to replace the bulb in my Pfaff with generic bulbs, and they would burn out in a few weeks. Finally bought the real thing from the Pfaff dealer. Wasn't $65.00, but still more that I thought it should cost. Still burning after a few months. Hope this doesn't happen to you.

    got the same problem but I'm not shelling out that kind of cash for this sewing machine, it has great stitches but it keeps breaking so next garage sale, it's gone!!!

    I have the Europro 9106 the Radio Shack replacement light was #194 Wedge Base Lamp 272-1126. Just in case you have the same model machine.

    You're welcome! I just thought I'd save someone else the aggravation.
