There are two holes running vertically inside the needle arm.........the needles are held firm by very small screws or hex allen keys.........they may have worked loose over time, if they have fallen out and been lost, it is a call to your local Pfaff dealer for advice......be sure to quote model number.
Your User manual may have a diagram to assist.
Have you ever changed the needles since buying this machine ??
Needles ought to be changed every 6 - 8 hrs of sewing, and more often with heavy or abrasive fabric.

Open the font of the serger and the instructions will be printed on the serger or on the door.
Raise the presser foot and set the tensions to zero when threading.
Turn the hand wheel so the upper looper (curved one) is at it's highest point and thread it first, and then the lower looper.
With some sergers you must thread in a certain sequence. This should be indicated in the instructions on the serger.
Set the tensions back to normal ( 4 - 6), lower the presser foot and run a length of stitching to see if the threads are knitted together as they should before you start serging your project.

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.
