Question about Kenmore 12102
Bobbin is either too tight or really loose. Can't find manual, dont know how to adjust to correct the problem
Welcome to FixYa!
Don't mess with the bobbin! They rarely need adjustment. Sloppy bottom stitches usually come from two things. Tension too loose on the tension dial or improper threading.
Dial tension should be set on about the mid range and you must, must, must, make sure that you have the machine in the proper thread patch. Have someone check it with you. Sometimes a fresh set of eyes will help you spot an area that you missed.
