Default Pfaff Hobbymatic 939 extra dual feed Sewing Machine

Hello, I am in need of a manual for this Pfaff machine. Manuals I have found online are not for this specific model. All the manuals have a lift-up lid with the bobbin winder and stitch dials under the lid, not this one.
Also some of them do not have the same amount of push buttons on the front lower right. This model does not have the thread cutter but does have the even-feed/walking foot.

So all the manuals I have found this far are only a very limited amount of help adjusting the stitches.
The machine number is 33345762 model 939.
Any help will be greatly appreciated to put the machine to good use.

I suspect you might hae a wait for an answer since this is newer than many of us here use.

Do not know how old the 939 is and did not know where to ask for help.

Am hoping someone has good links for manuals, as Google has not been much help.

OK I see it is a Household machine. I have a Variamatic 1115. Don't know about extra dual feed. Check Sew4less.

I do not know what they mean by the extra dual feed other than it has the on board walking foot.
Checked your site and nothing available at this time but will check back.
Thank you for the info.

I was curious about your machine. I found a picture at https://www.ebay.ie/itm/Pfaff-Hobbym...-/333230186211 I then went to http://www.pfaff.com/Support-and-Updates/Support and could not find a Hobbymatic 939 I looked at some of the other manuals and found that the Hobbymatic 933 & 953 have the wheel in the pillar. One has the lift up top handle and the other has the lid for the accessories, but both use the same manual. The 933/953 both have 12 keys on the bottom of the pillar. I found the Hobbymatic 904-1. 919-1 and 946-1 use the same manual. The 919-1 has the lift up handle, the right number? of buttons, but no wheel on the pillar. The 946-1 has the lift up lid and has a wheel on the pillar.

I also found some other Hobbymatic manuals at https://www.manualslib.com/manual/50...matic-935.html and https://www.manualslib.com/manual/10...matic-917.html

I know Pfaff, as indicated above & others that I have, will put several models in one manual. I did not check any of the Hobbymatic 800s to see if there were any similarities or not. You might have to combine manuals to figure out the 939. If I had a Hobbymatic 939, I would probably just see if one or two of the other manuals was close enough to figure it out. If I couldn't figure out the 939, I think I would check to see if Pfaff Customer Service could help ( http://www.pfaff.com/Support-and-Updates/Support ).

Did not know Pfaff had so many machines that were almost the same but still different. I looked at the 933/955 and it 'looks' like mine but will check to see if I can use any of the information.
Some 939 machines have a speed control ON the foot petal, never heard of that feature.
Will keep looking at the links you gave and from others. Sure hope I can print out enough pages to make my own manual.
Do you feel this is a good machine that will do some heavier fabric sewing, denim.

One thing today is, I took off the throat plate, as directed using the hook on the button hole foot. Now I can not get it back in place, so no test sewing.
Thank you all for giving information about this machine and will be spending time searching and printing today.
