Check your needle position selector, it must be selected to the right position for special application. Default must be in the center position. If it doesn't want to center itself when straight stitch is selected then I would thing a link inside came loose and a repair person should assess your problem specially if having no experience working on them.

I'm trying to find needles for my Pfaff Hobbymatic 875. Haven't had any luck. Do you know where to buy them? Thanks.


The Pfaff Hobbymatic Extra 875 uses standard 15x1 sewing machine needles. The needle you need will depend on the fabric and thread. You'll use a thicker needle for denim than for a lightweight knit. See https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/pfaff-875-serger-machine-parts.aspx?index=14 for a wide selection of different in stock needles.

I hope this helps.

I have not used my machine PFAF 875 hobbymatic in over 10 years. It has been in storage. No repairmen around my area. How can I ensure that it is ready to sew? It is running but it is slow


Hello, Angie -

First, give your sewinig machine a thorough cleaning and oiling (light touch of oil in the hook raceway, only), following instructions in your PFAF 875 Hobbymatic user's manual.

If you do not have the manual, you can find it here to download:
http://www.pfaff.com/SiteMedia/PFAFF/Products/Machines/Support-manuals/Pfaff_874_875_876_HobbyMATIC_Extra-manual-EN-DE-FR-IT.PDF

If the machine still seems to run slowly, then I suggest you look for a nearby business which sells Pfaff machines and ask where you can have your machine serviced.

If there is no business in your area which sells Pfaff machines, perhaps you can find a generic sewing machine repair business near you.

If you have not contacted the Pfaff company regarding service for your machine, this is the link to the Pfaff Machine Support page:

Best wishes.

My pfaff hobbymatic 875 is skipping thread on the bobbin side


Be sure to use a brand new needle. If the needle is bent or damaged, it will frequently skip stitches. Also, if you are using the incorrect needle for the fabric & thread you are using, it will skip stitches, ie a ball point needle on woven fabric.

verify bobbin thread tension is correct. I got this machine from mom in law, broke 4 needles in a night. lucky it has a complete manual. adjusted tension on bobbin, no further problem.

My pfaff hobbymatic has stopped doing zigzag and the needle is stuck on the right hand side


Check your needle position selector, it must be selected to the right position for special application. Default must be in the center position. If it doesn't want to center itself when straight stitch is selected then I would thing a link inside came loose and a repair person should assess your problem specially if having no experience working on them.
