How do I thread my hobbylock 797 overlocker


Do you have the manual? If not, there is a link online for your machine. If some of the 5? Thread cones are still threaded then cut the thread close to the spool and knot the new thread color on and use the drag to rethread. If you have no thread attached there is a particular order that you should follow as you thread each spool. They are color coded around your machine. A specialized set of tweezers with a really long reach is VERY helpful when trying to get in the really tight spaces. Now just in case...some folks don't have very good spatial ability. Reading flat diagrams and applying to an actual object can be challenging. If that is you... get someone that likes to tinker or the hubby of a sewist to help you out. And remember to never unthread your machine. Always cut and knot new thread to the old thread and let the machine feed it through for you! Good luck.

Bottom thread seems too tight!!! Help!!!


If the bottom thread is tight there should also be loops on top and this means that the upper tension is too tight.
Get out your manual (http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1198_8763-efs.pdf) and turn to page 24. Under "ADJUSTING TOP THREAD TENSION" it tells you that if you're having thread tension issues, change the tension control dial on the top of your machine from auto. It also shows you a diagram with your problem illustrated on the right side of the page. The bobbin tension is set at the factory, so all tension problems can be solved with top tension adjustment. Set it manually and if it loops on top, loosen the tension a little. Test again. Repeat until loops are gone.
Using different colours on top and bobbin and a contrasting fabric (e.g. black top, white bottom, light blue fabric) means you can easily see what's happening. A perfect stitch is when you see exactly the same stitch pattern on both sides of the fabric. On top, the bobbin thread colour appears between stitches as a tiny dot and on the bottom, you see the top thread dot between stitches.
If it's impossible to get the tension right, take it to a technician, because it's a sign that the hook timing needs attention.

I need a manual for a Pfaff Hobbylock Serger 4762, where can I find one


I can't find a manual for this model, however there is a general hobbylock book http://sewingonline.co.uk/library/know-your-pfaff-hobbylock.html which would certainly be a good start.

You may find best source is to contact Pfaff locally and source it from them direct.

You could also try www.diplodocs.com, I can't see this manual but if you go through similar model numbers manuals you may see one very similar. Overlockers/Sergers are very similar in many ways so once you've mastered one, the next one is pretty straight forward. Four tension knobs, 2 needles and 2 loopers is the norm - to get a three thread stitch you just don't thread one of the needles. Tension adjustments alter the stitch formation, and you should have a stitch length knob on the right side of the machine along with a flywheel and if it has it, differential feed (which controls the feed dogs so you can stretch, or compress the fabric as it goes under the foot).

There are some good general how to use a serger books in the marketplace too which should help. Threading up, many machines have a diagram inside the front flap, colour coded dots on the knobs, eyelets and loopers. And oiling points are often marked on this diagram too. But basically oil the two loopers where they slide/move on another metal part. Some good info here too http://sewing.about.com/od/sergersoverlock/Sergers_Overlock_Sewing_Machines.htm

Hope this assists you a little.

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.

 

http://www.pfaffmachines.co.uk/overlock/pfaff-hobbylock-2-overlocker.htm

 

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.

Hi :) Just got a Hobbylock 788 and need to thread


Here is the trick: If you look at your thread spools, left to right, thread machine beginning with thread from spool 3, then 4, then 1, then 2.

Thread 4 is tricky. You must line up the purple line on the big wheel on the right end in order to do this. Thread the machine according to the diagram on the inside, then, making sure you lined up the purple line, push the lever at the bottom of the machine (below threading guides) to the left while holding on to the thread end. This will push the thread up and along the horizontal arm you just threaded.
