Q:

is improper sewing machine needle likely cause of skipped bobbin stitches ? 15817511 Kenmore Kenmore sewing machine head

A:

Improper sewing machine needles are one cause of skipped bobbin stitches. Other causes include improper thread tension, improper threading, incorrect bobbin position, improper type of thread, the type of fabric and lint accumulation. 

Your details seem to indicate that the machine was working proper when using the new Singer needles. I recommend that you try using the same Singer needles and see if the machine still skips bobbin stitches. If not, then stick with the same type of needle.

If the machine skips bobbin stitches using the new Singer needles that you were using, then I recommend that you check the other issues listed above for the cause of your skipped bobbin stitches.
