Here's a link to the Google froogle search results, they are a little pricey though... You might find a cheaper one in your area by calling around and asking for a used one.

Pfaff hobbylock 4842 serger - how to thread


here is a manual:

PFAFF hobbylock 4842 Instruction Manual

Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the machine. Also, thread each thread in the ORDER specified or your machine will most likely never stitch correctly (usually, the upper looper first, lower looper next, and then the needles).

Price of a hobbylock 4842


Difficult to say. Supposedly original new price was ~$700

Pfaff Serger Overlock Hobbylock 4842 Specifications

However, if it is a used machine, so much is subjective based on physical and operating condition, the accessories included, desirability of the model, where it is located, etc.

I have a pfaff hobbylock 796.


Has any little kids been around lately? Have they had access to your sewing area and machine? (thinking perhaps the pressure foot tension has been tightened down) If it has been tightened, losen it a couple turns, see if that helps (remember, left to loosen, right to tighten)

When is the last time you oiled this machine? Typically sergers require a clean and oil each time you go to use them. Locate the bar that correlates to the presser foot add a drop of oil to the bar and let it seep in. After a few minutes try lifting the presser foot.

Also does the presser foot lever move at all?

HELP PLS. pfaff serger, hobbylock 788. it has been working fine. today i cant turn it on at all. what could be the problem?


Is one of the front covers open slightly? these will both have safety cutouts on them.

If not that, then could be foot control and cord that has a fault. Are you getting power to the light on it? Can you hear the engine humming? If there is nothing, then start by testing the foot control and cord.

You can probably buy a replacement foot control on one of the sewing part sights such as www.sewusa.com or www.sewingpartsonline.com

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 796 serger Does not turn. Seems ceased up


Good morning,

Could be a couple of things - either machine is just "gummed up" (can happen if it's been awhile since machine was serviced - more than a year), an internal part has broken or come loose or the machine has somehow been knocked out of time. As these are not things that you'll be able to fix yourself, you'll need to have your machine checked out by a qualified service tech.

Best of luck,
