Question about Kenmore 15212 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I had the same problem. And I read and read the instructions (I'm sure you did, too)! However, I finally realized that Step #5 is the key. Turn the stitch selector to the reverse arrow and back to the bottonhole symbol. this seems to re-set the machine. It worked for me!

When in doubt, read the instructions !!
Your manual will probably have fairly specific guidance, but,....
just ensure the button holder and the stop guide are in the correct location.........if you find that it is just zigzagging on and on and not stopping, the culprit will be the small arm that stops the distance movement and tells the machine to do the tack stitch before changing direction and is on the wrong side of the stopper.....it drove me mad for a while too a few months ago, coz it "looked' right.......so double check that position.....even place the arm on the other side of the stopper and do a test.
