Hello every one I have the Manual available for the Kenmore 12102 sewing machine in (Pdf downloadable) for those in need of this booklet. You may email me at HealingForaWoundedSpirit@hotmail.com this email address is also used for outreach ministry.
By the way my name is Borther Paul.
I had that problem, too, then realized my needle was in the wrong way. The flat side needs to be inserted AWAY from you.
I have a Kenmore 16528. It was such an easy solution! I was ready to take it in for repairs! Hope that helps!

try changing the needle--make sure it's the correct one for the fabric being sewed rethread the machine ---using every thread guide try using a different bobbin try turning the bobbin over the other direction clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area for lint also could be a timing problem and the machine would need to be checked at a sewing machine repair shop
are you doing embroidery? if so turn off jump stitch cutting if possible. is the machine threaded correctly (pull needle thread out of machine and thread again with presser foot raised.
check for foreign matter in needle tension assembly. ensure there is sufficient needle thread tension.
the thread you see caught up underneath the fabric will be needle thread and indicates insufficient needle thread tension or something preventing the needle thread from being pulled up into the fabric (maybe a damaged bobbin case, or bobbin case position finger, or damaged needle plate hole).
There could be several reasons due to which the thread keeps bunching up underneath.
It may be due to tangling of upper thread. Remove the thread completely from the machine, use correct size spool cap for the size of the thread spool, re-thread the machine, now remove
the bobbin and make sure the bobbin is threaded properly in the shuttle race. Remove any loose threads or lint in the shuttle race.
could be holding the needle thread too tight. Hold the thread lightly to keep the end from going down into the shuttle.
needle could be thread incorrectly. Thread the needle eye from the front to the back.
needle could be bent or improperly inserted. Install a new needle with the flat side of the needle facing the back.
Please rate the solution as FixYa and revert for any clarification.
Needle in correct? Be sure your bobbin is not in upside down and turning the wrong way. Possibly the hook that the bobbicase fits in/on has been hit by a needle and caused a burr that is catching the thread as it comes around. The burr would have to be polished off or hook replaced. The machine could be slightly out of time also.
If you are having problems with the thread on the underside of the fabric, that is usually the upper tension. Check to make sure that it is threaded correctly. If so, make sure that the thread is inside the tension disc and that there are no pieces of thread caught in the tension. If it is threaded and there are no thread caught up in the tension assembly, adjust your tension dial to a slightly higher number. Do this until you get a good stitch.
