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.

I need a manual for a Pfaff Hobbylock Serger 4762, where can I find one


I can't find a manual for this model, however there is a general hobbylock book http://sewingonline.co.uk/library/know-your-pfaff-hobbylock.html which would certainly be a good start.

You may find best source is to contact Pfaff locally and source it from them direct.

You could also try www.diplodocs.com, I can't see this manual but if you go through similar model numbers manuals you may see one very similar. Overlockers/Sergers are very similar in many ways so once you've mastered one, the next one is pretty straight forward. Four tension knobs, 2 needles and 2 loopers is the norm - to get a three thread stitch you just don't thread one of the needles. Tension adjustments alter the stitch formation, and you should have a stitch length knob on the right side of the machine along with a flywheel and if it has it, differential feed (which controls the feed dogs so you can stretch, or compress the fabric as it goes under the foot).

There are some good general how to use a serger books in the marketplace too which should help. Threading up, many machines have a diagram inside the front flap, colour coded dots on the knobs, eyelets and loopers. And oiling points are often marked on this diagram too. But basically oil the two loopers where they slide/move on another metal part. Some good info here too http://sewing.about.com/od/sergersoverlock/Sergers_Overlock_Sewing_Machines.htm

Hope this assists you a little.

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.

My hobbylock 774 stops sewing...i've listen a plastic cracking...maybe i've broke something? It has all sewing thread strung...can you help me?


The 774 is a very nice serger. Take the needles out and turn the handwheel and listen for the noise. Put two NEW needles in and listen for the sound. If it isn't right, take it to a repair person before the problems escalate.

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.

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!
