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 have a pfaff 261 when the knee pressor is engaged the motor runs but the needle doesn't engage. If i turn the wheel by hand the needle will engage.


First, stop running the motor if the machine is not operating. Most likely the old oil has stuck things together. Continued operation of the motor in such condition could burn up the motor or break a gear.

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.

Using a Pfaff Hobbymatic 935. Needle will not move, mechanism around bobbin will not move. Everything is locked in place. Tried cleaning everything, removed the needle (to get the fabric out of the way),...


It is likely the the bobbin holder is jammed up with cloth or thread. Take the bobbin holder out and turn the machine by hand, if it does not move it could have a broken timing belt or slipping coupling.
