It should just cut. Don't know too much about this machine as I'm new owner, but from what I can gather, either you need a new blade, or the upper knife is disengaged. The metal knob inside the threading area should be turned downwards, engaging the upper knife. The upper knife doesn't usually need replacing unless damaged, apparently. Hope this helps somewhat.

My hobbylock 784-786 serger blade won't cut fabric, it just jams up.


The blade is most likely dull or nicked. Usually, one blade can be changed by the user. The other blade needs to be done by a technician because it requires some technical knowledge.

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.

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 can't find the way to change the left needle.


You can order a manual here - http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Pfaff_Manuals/794_796_Hobbylock_Instruction_Manual.htm

In the meantime, contact your local Pfaff dealer. Ask if someone can help you if you bring the serger in.

Price of hobbylock 794 in todays market.


Price depends upon how much the machine has been used & what condition it is in. My hobbylock 794 has barely been touched since it was first made and they advised I just throw it out instead when I took it in for a little 'freshening up' at Quality sewing & vacuum in Washington! Everywhere else I've had great feedback that this is a good serger, so check out what similar machines are selling for on Ebay... you could get $100~$400 for your trusty serger {depending on supply & demand}.
