The threads inside the screw hole are probably stripped. If so you will need to have them rethreaded and a different screw used or have the needle bar changed.For this you should see a technician.

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.

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.

I want to bye a new motor for Pfaff HOBBYLOCK ELECTRONIC 784 MACINE.


e-bay has a selection of new motors available for sale
contact a pfaff service agent and see if they are still available. unless the motor smells or smokes I would have the machine serviced as it may be cotton waste wrapped around moving parts that is jamming the machine indicating a failing motor.

Hobbylock 797 how to thread


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.

Threading


Mary - I sympathise with you regarding the "vague manual directions". I have a Pfaff 4862 and if I hadn't found the video, I would never have managed to get it working. There are animated videos at the Pfaff website, just not sure if they would still have them up for the older models - but worth a try, surely.
