SOURCE: The shaft piece on my hobbylock 786 serger is loose

The top hex screw I think holds the bushing that allows it to slide freely. Keep that loose. If you open the panel where the lightbulb lives and spin the wheel, you will see a small flathead screw come into sight near the top of the rotation, through a small round window in the case. Tightening this screw a bit should keep the needleshaft moving with the wheel. Unfortunately I am still trying to find out how to position it so that it's properly timed.

SOURCE: 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.

Pfaff hobbylock 4842 serger - how to thread


here is a manual:

PFAFF hobbylock 4842 Instruction Manual

Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the machine. Also, thread each thread in the ORDER specified or your machine will most likely never stitch correctly (usually, the upper looper first, lower looper next, and then the needles).

Top thread breaking?


Upper thread breaks
needle may be in backwards
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine
round needle--the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft.
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
upper tension may be to tight
the needle may be bent or damaged
thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint

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.
