Try changing to a new needle preferably size 80 universal. If you hear a little popping sound when you sew, that's telling you that the needle is bad and is no longer sharp. The needle either has no sharp point or has a bur on it which is pushing down into the material making a hole and on the way back out it's pulling the fabric with it. Let me know if this works for you. Good luck.

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.

Bar that sewng foot is attached to for raising & lowering suddenly will not drop sweing foot all the way down to plate. Any suggestions on how to fix?


It sounds like something is blocking the lever from coming all the way down. Clean and oil. Look for bits of lint or fabric. Use a flashlight and look very carefully and you may be able to see the obstruction.

Perhaps you accidently moved the switch that enables free hand embroidery? It's up and under next to the pressor foot lever. Slides forward and backward. Forward the pressor foot will go all the way down to the feed dogs. Slid back and it keeps the foot up off the feed dogs but allows the thread tension to work properly. It would be easy to accidently move it when operating the pressor foot raise/lower lever.

I need a free pfaff hobbymatic 917 instruction manual


For many of the Phaff machines, you can search and find your machine at this link, and download the .pdf file, then print out. This is FREE, no charge, and available to anyone. I searched and found it by luck. Note, your model may be included in other model numbers. My wife's Phaff Hobbymatic 927(Made in West Germany) manual includes the 917 and 947 models. Good luck, hope this helps.

Bulb change, Pfaff Hobbymatic 927


Access may be a little awkward...remove side cover to gain space.
Either push and twist (bayonet) or unscrew anticlockwise.
Take to the dealer for replacement and they will likely do and show for no extra fee !!
