The needles are changed by inserted the hex wrench into what looks to be holes on the front and left side where the needles go into the machine.I'm not sure what size the hex wrench is but it's pretty small. From the manual,
"Removing Needle: Unplug the machine. Turn the handwheel counterclockwise to raise the needle bar to its highest position. Loosen the needle clamp with the allen wrench and pull the needle out." and
"Inserting needle: When the neddle bar is at the highest position, insert a new needle in the needle holder, making sure that the groove of the needle faces you. Push the needle as far up as it will go and tighten the needle clamp screw." "Removing Needle: Unplug the machine. Turn the handwheel counterclockwise to raise the needle bar to its highest position. Loosen the needle clamp with the allen wrench and pull the needle out."

The machine takes DB x 1, or 1738 needles, and a size 14 needle is recommended.

Hope this helps!

You can also try eBay. If not lucky there, try finagling one using a nail with a drinking straw over the nail to hold the spool.

I want to bye a new motor for Pfaff HOBBYLOCK ELECTRONIC 784 MACINE.


e-bay has a selection of new motors available for sale
contact a pfaff service agent and see if they are still available. unless the motor smells or smokes I would have the machine serviced as it may be cotton waste wrapped around moving parts that is jamming the machine indicating a failing motor.

Hobbylock 797 how to thread


The hobbylocks all thread in much the same fashion.  There is a diagram for a four thread hobbylock on this website.  It would be better if you found a Pfaff dealer to show you as it is quite complicated.

Once you have it threaded, always cut the old threads at the spool and knot new ones on and pull through.  You will have to thread the needles as the knots will not pass through but it does save an awful lot of frustration when needing new colours on the spools.

I have a hobbylock 776. The square box on the shaft that holds the needles is broken. I think the holes for the screws are stripped. I believe it is the needle bar. Can not find a part.


You will need a new needle bar. Call your local Pfaff Dealer, as this part is only available from them (if at all). The needle set screw holes could possibly be tapped and fitted with different screws as a last resort, but I wouldn't count on it.

This book is more helpful since it has detailed info pics in color- 182 pgs, @$3.00. Lists parts, projects, etc. The 786 manual has errors, 35 pgs. not detailed as the book above. Good luck!

If the needle bar is no longer available, the current needle bar can be repaired by cutting new threads in it and changing the screw. Not simple but not rocket science either.Most mechanics can do this.
