The needles are changed by inserted the hex wrench into what looks to be holes on the front and left side where the needles go into the machine.I'm not sure what size the hex wrench is but it's pretty small. From the manual,
"Removing Needle: Unplug the machine. Turn the handwheel counterclockwise to raise the needle bar to its highest position. Loosen the needle clamp with the allen wrench and pull the needle out." and
"Inserting needle: When the neddle bar is at the highest position, insert a new needle in the needle holder, making sure that the groove of the needle faces you. Push the needle as far up as it will go and tighten the needle clamp screw." "Removing Needle: Unplug the machine. Turn the handwheel counterclockwise to raise the needle bar to its highest position. Loosen the needle clamp with the allen wrench and pull the needle out."

The machine takes DB x 1, or 1738 needles, and a size 14 needle is recommended.

Hope this helps!

You can order a manual here - http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Pfaff_Manuals/794_796_Hobbylock_Instruction_Manual.htm

In the meantime, contact your local Pfaff dealer. Ask if someone can help you if you bring the serger in.

You can also try eBay. If not lucky there, try finagling one using a nail with a drinking straw over the nail to hold the spool.

Price of hobbylock 794 in todays market.


Price depends upon how much the machine has been used & what condition it is in. My hobbylock 794 has barely been touched since it was first made and they advised I just throw it out instead when I took it in for a little 'freshening up' at Quality sewing & vacuum in Washington! Everywhere else I've had great feedback that this is a good serger, so check out what similar machines are selling for on Ebay... you could get $100~$400 for your trusty serger {depending on supply & demand}.

Serger 794 from pfaff--calanda type 794


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.

You have a timing problem which needs a technician to repair. to do this properly, you need some special gauges which, generally , are not found just anywhere. Take it a technician and get an estimate before you leave it.

If the needle bar is no longer available, the current needle bar can be repaired by cutting new threads in it and changing the screw. Not simple but not rocket science either.Most mechanics can do this.
