What #holes on 158.1786181 solid state Kenmore sew machine bobbin


Do you mean the lower bobbin spool? It should not matter too much so long as it fits. Try it on a scrap of material and see how it goes.

Try changing the needle

Bobbin cover will not close


if the bobbin cover won't fit easily over the bobbin the either it's the wrong bobbin for the machine, the bobbin is warped or there is something wrong with the bobbin case

Singer Model 2638. What class bobbin do I use? Bobbin package says: consult manual, but it's not in there. Are they interchangeable as long as they fit?


Hi! Your machine uses Class15J bobbins (http://www.singerco.com/accessories/notions.html)
No, bobbins aren't really interchangeable, even if they fit. For example, I have a Kenmore 385 Elite and a Brother SX-8060. One (the Kenmore) uses bobbins with a curved top and bottom. The Brother uses bobbins that are flat on top and bottom. Either bobbin fits in either machine. But if I use a curved top and bottom in the Brother, it clicks and clacks and has a greater tendency to jam than the flat bobbins. Likewise, the Kenmore is just happier with its curved bobbins.
Hope this helps!

Kenmore Sewing Machine Drop-in Bobbin Tension Adjusting Problems


looped stitches are usually caused by improper tension. when the loop is on the upper side, it may be corrected by loosening the top tension or by tightening the lower tension (turn the tension screws on the bobbin a hair at a time)

since using the machine only a few times it is best to clean the machine from dust (can use a can of air) blow air into the bobbin area and between the tension disks and under the throat plate.

make sure the machine is threaded correctly and bobbin is evenly threaded

Kenmore sewing maching model 158.904


I bought mine at Walmrt. They are a Singer product and says it will fit most machines. There are 2 belts in the package and the small one is for bobbin winders. I have a Kenmore 158,904 and it fits perfect.
